Eden Hazard is unlikely to be available for Chelsea’s trip toNorwich City this weekend, José Mourinho has revealed.

The Belgium international has been left out of the Blues’ squad for Tuesday’s Champions League clash at Steaua Bucharest after picking up an ankle problem in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Tottenham.
And Mourinho confirmed that the 21-year-old is a major injury doubt ahead of Sunday’s trip to Carrow Road.
“Eden I don’t think will be fit for Sunday,” said Mourinho.
“I think he will be fit after the international break but Dr [Paco] Biosca is always optimistic and says there is a little chance he can be fit for Sunday [when Chelsea visit Norwich].”
Hazard, who was substituted in the 69th minute at White Hart Lane, has started all six of Chelsea’s Premier League games this season. 

Steaua Bucharest v Chelsea: Pre-match facts

Steaua are the only Romanian club to have triumphed in Europe, winning the European Champion Clubs’ Cup in 1985-86 by defeating Barcelona in a penalty shoot-out.
• Steaua have conceded 346 goals in Uefa competition.
• Ramires returns from a one-game ban following his red card in the Uefa Super Cup loss to Bayern Munich.
• Chelsea have 11 points from six games this season, as they had in September 2007 when José Mourinho’s first spell at Stamford Bridge ended.
