Chelsea star Eden Hazard in squad to play at Aldershot tonight

26 August 2017

Roberto Martinez does not expect a row with Chelsea after calling Eden Hazard up to the Belgium squad even though the attacker has not returned to first-team football.

Hazard is yet to feature for Chelsea this season after suffering a broken ankle while on global duty with Belgium at the start of the summer.

N'Golo Kante is certain to keep his place so Tiemoue Bakayoko could be the man most likely to make way as he was rushed back from a knee injury to play against Spurs so he could be given a breather, despite putting in an excellent display. We think with "us", not with "I". He is not fully fit.

"Eden is our captain and needs to be in our selection". The information we have was good enough to call him up.

Antonio Conte has insisted that he will be happy even if Chelsea don't bring in any new faces in the final days of the transfer window.

Ahead of the Everton fixture, Conte said: "I'm a bit surprised by this decision".

He promised $1 million for minority communities and has already distributed $800,000 among several non profits and causes. Some speakers said the league's treatment of Kaepernick is of a piece with a cavalier attitude toward players' health.

"I was a coach of the national team with Italy but I respect the decision of the other coach". Hazard is playing this afternoon with the Under 23's. Hazard is an important player for us. "If we continue to stay with these players then I'm very happy, I am very happy".

Andreas Christensen was impressive against Tottenham last week but I think we might see the youngster drop back to the bench as David Luiz should return to the back three following his stint in midfield.

"For me it is very important to continue to improve, to continue to work with my players on the pitch and to continue to improve my team".

In his stead, Steven Defour is offered a recall for the first time since November 2016, while Jordan Lukaku's reward for a fine start to the season at Lazio is his first call-up in 10 months.

Belgium host Gibraltar on 31 August followed by a trip to Greece on 3 September.
