Eden Hazard was only deemed worthy of being a second half substitute as Chelsea came back to draw with Manchester United while he was on the pitch.
Eden Hazard's return from a hamstring injury has been more protracted than one might expect for last season's Premier League Player of the Year. Despite being fit enough for a spot on the bench over Chelsea's past two matches, the Belgium international hasn't been tapped to start either by Guus Hiddink. Rather he has been cast in the role of second half change of pace by the Dutch interim manager. With Chelsea's play improving and Hazard contributing little during that period of improved play, it is reasonable to wonder if the arrangement will stand despite Hazard being fully fit.

Eden Hazard is questionable for Chelsea's two upcoming Premier League matches.

This could be big for Chelsea, who are just hitting their stride, as one of their best players is questionable. Hazard is struggling with a groin injury and it seems unlikely he'll be fit for the midweek match; Pedro and Willian could get big boosts in value during his absence.

Chelsea are sweating on the fitness of Eden Hazard after the Belgium playmaker was forced off during the opening exchanges at Selhurst Park yesterday.

Hazard has struggled in recent weeks after picking up a hip injury (at Leicester in GW16) but the 24-year-old looked to be making inroads regarding his fitness when he started at Old Trafford over Christmas. However, Hazard lasted barely 15-minutes on Sunday after pulling up in pain following an effort on goal. Post-match interim manager Guus Hiddink revealed the player will have an MRI scan to determine the extent of his injury: "Hazard sprained his leg, he has a little problem with a groin muscle." Chelsea are expected to provide an update on Tuesday.

Further tests have revealed that Eden Hazard did not suffer any serious damage on Monday night after the Chelsea player was forced off during the first half at The King Power.

Hazard fell awkwardly to the ground banging his hip following an innocuous coming together with Jamie Vardy. The Belgium international spent several minutes receiving treatment before a decision was made to introduce Pedro. A frustrated Jose Mourinho suggested post-match that it was Hazard who made the choice not to continue "after 10 seconds," leading to speculation on whether the player was injured or not. Belgium newspaper Sportwereld ran with the headline: 'Did Hazard fake a serious injury to boycott Mourinho?' However, respected London based journalist Kristof Terreur confirms that Hazard did go for a scan on Tuesday which revealed heavy bruising to the hip. It’s uncertain whether Eden Hazard will be available for this weekends’ game versus Sunderland.

Eden Hazard played an absolutely fantastic match today to propel Chelsea to a 1-0 win over Norwich.

It was Diego Costa that scored the winning goal, but Hazard was easily the best player on the pitch for the first time this season. The Belgian midfielder has been out of form recently, but a home match against Norwich was what the doctor prescribed to break out of a slump. Hazard will be a good fantasy option next week as he tries to string two good performances in a row.

Eden Hazard could miss Tuesdays’ friendly international against Spain after the Chelsea playmaker was unable to take part in training yesterday because of illness.

Having already qualified for the European Championships in France, Belgium coach Marc Wilmots is able to use the friendly internationals - versus Italy and Spain - as an opportunity for some of his fringe players to stake a claim next years’ tournament. With a busy Festive fixture period coming up – particularly for those involved in the Premier League – Wilmots will not take any unnecessary risks despite his desire to remain number one in the FIFA World Rankings. Captain Vincent Kompany has already returned to City having arrived with a minor calf complaint while Mousa Dembele and Christian Benteke were unused substitutes on Friday following their recent injury problems.

Eden Hazard was left on the bench this weekend and Jose Mourinho stated the reason to be purely tactical.

Mourinho further stated that one of the reasons to leave Hazard on the bench was because his team has been conceding a lot of goals and he needed more discipline from his attacking midfielders. He also added that leaving a great talent like Hazard on the bench was difficult, but that's what was needed for a solid performance and it worked out well. Hazard is expected to start in the Champions League in midweek with Pedro and Remy both ruled out.

Eden Hazard is expected to start tomorrow after getting a rest in midweek in the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho never rested Hazard last season and it's showing now with the midfielder showing a lack of energy at times. He was rested in midweek but is expected to get the start against Southampton this weekend and should be considered a good fantasy option. He played fairly well in Chelsea's last two matches and is trending up despite his team's struggles.

Eden Hazard finally played well in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Arsenal this past weekend.

Even before Arsenal went down to 9 men, Hazard very active for Chelsea and created a number of chances for his teammates. He also had a well struck shot saved by Petr Cech and you could easily say he caused Arsenal trouble for the entire match. He ended up scoring in the final moments, and fantasy managers should feel much better about using him in the upcoming weekend against Newcastle.

Eden Hazard's penalty taking duties are in question after he missed yet another penalty in the UEFA Champions League yesterday.

Hazard has now missed three of his six penalties in the Champions League and after missing one yesterday, Oscar was given the responsibility for Chelsea's second penalty kick. Jose Mourinho stated after the match that it's Hazard's choice whether or not he takes the next penalty and knowing soccer players, Hazard will most likely choose to take it, but he is not as nailed on as he was at the beginning of the season to take Chelsea's spot kicks. Hazard has really struggled this season and you should be skeptical in using him in fantasy leagues at the moment. He remains a must start in draft-leagues, but his high price makes him a poor option in the official EPL game and in Daily Fantasy leagues, especially against a tough Arsenal side this weekend.

Eden Hazard scored a late winner to propel Belgium over Cyprus in the Group B Euro 2016 Qualifier.

Belgium played an overall boring match against Cyprus but should be happy with the result as they won all three points away from home. The match was headed for 0-0 when Hazard made a nice run into the box and slotted home with a nice shot to give Belgium a 1-0 win. The most impressive player for the Belgian team was Kevin de Bruyne, who played well and created a number of chances for his strikers. The new Manchester City star is locked in to have a great fantasy season, so pick him up if he's available on your waiver wire.

Eden Hazard scored a wonder goal to open up the scoring between Chelsea and Barcelona in the International Champions Cup.

Chelsea won the match on penalties after finishing 2-2 in regulation, but it was Hazard's goal that was the most impressive. The Belgian midfielder was recently praised by Mourinho for being better than Cristiano Ronaldo and he surely didn't disappoint today. Hazard enters the season as a top three fantasy player and should be drafted in the top three in almost all fantasy formats.

Eden Hazard finished the Premier League season as the highest scoring midfielder in the Yahoo! fantasy game.

Hazard was spectacular the entire season, playing in every single match. He was expensive for most of the year but was well worth his price week in and week out. On top of 14 goals and 9 assists, Hazard won 113 fouls and had 33 shots on target, leading his way to 439 fantasy points on the season. The Belgian midfielder will be a top three fantasy pick next year in almost any format.

Eden Hazard has been upgraded to doubtful for GW38.

Hazard was initially ruled out for the last match of the season after undergoing a dental procedure to remove his wisdom teeth but Jose Mourinho now hopes Hazard can be involved on Sunday. This is Chelsea's last match of the season and they'll be presented with the cup, so Mourinho will want to play his regulars. If Hazard can be fit, he will feature, but he is a huge risk for fantasy managers.

Eden Hazard will miss the last match of the season due to a dental operation.

Hazard had to undergo an emergency removal of three wisdom teeth and will not be able to play in the final match of the season. Hazard also missed out on collecting his Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year trophy. The Blues' midfielder is obviously expected to be fully ready for next season. We would expect to see Juan Cuadrado start for Chelsea with Hazard out in the final week of the season.
