Chelsea star Eden Hazard is doubtful for Burnley clash as he is suffering from a calf injury.

According to the website PhysioRoom, the Belgian playe picked up this minor physical issue during last match against Arsenal, against whom he scored also a wonderful goal.

It will be a tough decision for Conte, who will have to decide if drop him or not, as Hazard has been one of his key-players during this season, but Willian and Pedro – who are in top for as well – are ready to replace him.

It’s no news Antonio Conte brought Chelsea passion and determination again, and we also know the Italian coach loves to join his players during training exercises to improve the feeling and remain fit.

But the unexpected can happen, and it’s understood the Blues boss picked up a calf injury while doing a running exercise with his squad.

Who knows if this we will stop him to be so passionate in the touchline during Stoke’s game tomorrow, as we could see in these first months at Stamford Bridge.

But when you are pursuing the 13th win in a row and you are in the title race, nothing can basically stop you, especially if you are an ardent guy like Antonio Conte.

Radamel Falcao can still leave Chelsea: the Colombian striker can move to China until the 26 of February, when the transfer market window shuts in the Oriental country.

Chinese side Jiangsu Suning just spent £25m on Blues legend Ramires and Shanghai Shenua just signed former Inter midfielder and Falcao’s Colombia fellow-mate Fredy Guarin for £10m, so the attitude of the China’s sides to try get some stars from the European championships to improve their football is clear.

Falcao is currently recovering a calf injury, but this situation wouldn’t compromise his transfer.

Also Loic Remy got offers from Chinese sides, but he rejected them.
