Eden Hazard may not play a full 90 minutes for Chelsea until after the international break against Tottenham.
This was disclosed by the club gaffer, sarri
The 27-year-old missed three matches with a back injury and on Thursday night made his first start since the October 20 draw with Manchester United.
Hazard played for 62 minutes as Chelsea advanced to the Europa League knockout stages with victory at BATE Borisov of Belarus, having made his return as a substitute in last Sunday’s win over Crystal Palace.
Asked if Hazard was now ready to play a full game against Everton on Sunday, head coach Maurizio Sarri said: “I’m not sure. It depends on the intensity of the match.”
