Eden Hazard to miss Palace tie

Patrick Power by Patrick Power @rfutbol - 0 +11k

Hazard is sidelined due to a calf injury.

Eden Hazard is currently facing a race against time, in order to be fit for the clash with London rivals Crystal Palace.

Chelsea will play Crystal Palace at home on April 1st, a game which is of vital importance to Conte's men in their bid to secure Premier League glory.

Having missed Chelsea's last outing at Stoke, Eden Hazard is a serious doubt for the fixture. The Belgian will not feature in his national team's qualifier against Greece or the friendly against Russia, with head coach Roberto Martinez estimating that he should remain on the sidelines for 10 to 15 days.

Chelsea have a wide gap ahead of closest title contenders Tottenham, and are set to meet Palace in 12 days time. It will ultimately be up to Conte, if he wants to take risks regarding the Belgians calf injury.
