Antonio Conte has ruled out Eden Hazard from the squad to face West Ham, after he was kicked in training.
Hazard has started all of Chelsea’s league matches this season, except one and is the only injury worry for Chelsea.
However, Conte does not remember which of the players inflicted the injury on the Belgium captain.
“There are no important injuries – apart from a little problem for Eden Hazard. He got kicked,” Conte said at a news conference at Cobham Training Ground. “But it’s nothing serious. The rest of the team are in good fitness and working very well.
“The kick was in training on Wednesday. I don’t remember who kicked him, but it’s nothing at all serious.”
David Luiz has been playing through a knee injury since a rash challenge from Sergio Aguero in December but is still seeking full fitness.
