Eden Hazard could miss Atletico Madrid game

Chelsea assistant coach Steve Holland admits that Eden Hazard is facing a race against time to be fit for their Champions League tie in Madrid on Tuesday.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard could miss Chelsea's Champions League semi-final first leg against Atletico Madrid next week, according to assistant coach Steve Holland.

The Belgian winger, who was nominated twice in the PFA awards today, limped out of the Blues' last Champions League game on April 8.

He now faces a race against time if he wants to be considered for Tuesday's crucial match.

"He hasn't trained yet," Holland told reporters. "But that doesn't definitely rule him out of the game on Tuesday.

"Normal procedure is that you wouldn't ask a player to play in a game without some training beforehand, so he's got to train with the group in the next couple of days.

"He's obviously close but it's day-by-day at the moment."

Chelsea will play the first leg of the tie away from home, in Madrid on Tuesday evening.
