Eden Hazard faces a race against time to be fit for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Burnley after picking up a back problem.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri confirmed the Belgian star will sit out Thursday night’s Europa League encounter with BATE.
“Tomorrow he (Hazard) is out for sure,” said Sarri. ”He has a back problem. We are trying to solve the problem for Sunday.”
Hazard has netted eight times in all competitions this season and tops the Premier League’s scoring charts.
