Hip confusion: Eden Hazard injury update, scans

New, comments

Eden Hazard's injury from a Jamie Vardy tackle on Monday is apparently some sort of hip injury, which is the bodypart that Hazard was clutching at straight away as he cut a figure of pure agony on the turf.  He was substituted not long after of course, though that seems to be have led to a bit of confusion.

Fortunately, it would appear that it's not serious.  (Or "important" as Mourinho was expecting.)  Call it a hip bruise.  A hip contusion.  A hip confusion?

Without any midweek commitments, Hazard has a couple extra days to recover, smooth over any misunderstandings that may be lingering (from the injury-substitution sequence), and get ready for the next crucial, must-win match on Saturday agains Sunderland at the Bridge.
