Chelsea will face Crystal Palace at home on April first after the international break, a game which is of indispensable significance to Conte’s men in their bid to secure Premier League wonderfulness.
Having missed Chelsea’s last trip to the Bet365 stadium on Saturday, Eden Hazard is a genuine uncertainty for the new ‘April Fool’ month. The Belgian won’t feature in his national team’s qualifier against Greece and a possibility of missing against Russia, with Roberto Martinez assessing that he ought to stay on the sidelines for 10 to 15 days.
Chelsea has a wide points gap ahead of nearest title contenders Tottenham, and are set to meet Palace in 12 days time. It will, at last, be dependent upon Conte, in the event that he needs to go out on a limb with respect to the Belgians calf injury.
“Eden has suffered an injury before the match against Stoke, it does not look so serious,” Martinez said.
