Chelsea star Eden Hazard has admitted he sustained an ankle injury in the club’s 3-1 defeat to Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday.

Dele Alli and Harry Kane put them two up inside 16 minutes, before a brilliant solo goal from Heung-min Son after the break made it three.

It could have been a rout had Spurs taken all of their chances before Olivier Giroud scored a late consolation for Sarri’s men.

Maurizio Sarri’s side can confirm their place in the last 32 of the Europa League with a win against PAOK on Thursday and Hazard was likely to be involved.

However, the Belgian has cast doubt over his fitness by revealing he picked up an ankle injury after a tackle from Serge Aurier in the dying minutes.

Speaking to beIN Sports after the game, Hazard said:  ‘My injury I think is not something bad,’

‘I think I just twisted my ankle, but it’s like every game, it’s the same.

‘I am used to (it) and I will be back soon.’
