HAZARD INJURED: "Chelsea push him to play so he has no choice!"

The Eden Hazard debate rumbles on after another poor performance against Paris Saint Germain on Wednesday night. Once again though, Thierry Hazard has come to the defence of his son and claims that Chelsea are pushing him to play with little choice through injury.

Speaking after the exit to PSG and the fact that some of the Chelsea fans booed his son off of the pitch when he was substituted through injury and based on the fact that before the first leg, he spoke of the possibility of signing for PSG, Hazard Snr has spoken out again. He said:

"Eden’s lack of form is due to an injury, an inflammation in the hip, that he’s been carrying now for three or four months. It’s not a bad injury, but when the pain appears, it feels like a stabbing. It’s feels like a knife is stabbed in it.

He was feeling the pain early in the game [against Leicester] and that’s why he has asked for a substitution. Instead of giving Eden a time to overcome the injury and have a proper rest, they push him to play because they have some important games... So he has no choice... Which player hasn’t had highs of lows in his career? It’s the first time in his professional career that he’s confronted with a difficult period. He’s not machine, as we know.

Eden has never said he wanted to play for PSG. He’s just confirmed that PSG have become a big club and that every player would like to play for clubs of that level. Eden has a contract until 2020. It’s out of question that he’ll leave the club at the moment.”

If he needs a break then give him a break to recover, we have a squad more than capable of winning Premier League games and now Pedro is back we can play him in his position.

However, it's also important to remember that there has been plenty of games BEFORE Leicester that he was involved in and his performances were no different. Is he making up excuses for his son because the difference in his form has been so drastic?

Eden Hazard is our best player on his day and I think we can all agree on that. However, no matter who you are, when you are injured you become a liability no matter what situation you find yourselves in and run the risk of making things worse keeping you out of the game for longer.

We have to be realistic here based on the fact that he will be going to the Euros this summer in addition to the fact that we have players that can step in ahead of him, why have we not rested him for the lesser games?

What do you think about the Eden Hazard situation at the moment, his injury and his overall performance this season? Reports state that the club has no intention of selling him this summer with Antonio Conte wanting to work with him when he comes in as our new Manager. Would you sell him or keep him?

It's an interesting debate because Chelsea need to get back into the Champions League by finishing inside the top four next season. To do so, we WILL need Eden Hazard in my opinion.
