Aren’t these Chelsea, Manchester United and Villa players supposed to be injured?

We’ve all been there at some point. Either calling in sick at work, or at school, when really you’re absolutely fine.

Then there is always the risk of getting caught.

And that is what appears to have happened to Belgian duo Marouane Fellaini and Christian Benteke – and they have Chelsea star Eden Hazard to thank.

Hazard – an avid social media user – couldn’t resist posting a picture of him and his pals in full training gear on both Twitter and Instagram.

It is not known whether David Moyes and Paul Lambert are fans of these social media sites, but should this picture get back to them as expected, you can imagine they will not be too happy – considering both are supposed to be injured.

Benteke has not featured for Villa since injuring his groin against Norwich on September 21, while reports suggested Fellaini was set to miss up to seven weeks of Manchester United action with a wrist injury.

Maybe it has something to do with Belgium’s vital World Cup qualifier against Croatia on Friday night… I wonder if the two of them will play?
