Chelsea boosted as injured star set for return ahead of Arsenal clash

Chelsea look to have been boosted ahead of their clash with Arsenal as Eden Hazard edges closer to making a return to action, Sky Sports reports.

The 25-year-old has not featured for the current Premier League champions since injuring his groin against Crystal Palace back on January 3rd.

He has now missed the team’s previous three matches, but could make a recovery before the Blues face the league leaders this Sunday.

Guus Hiddink is said to have put the winger through a number of tough training sessions, with no fitness concerns for the Belgium international flagged as a result.

However, Hiddink is expected to wait until tomorrow before confirming whether Hazard will feature against the Gunners or not.

The attacker has been struggling so far this term, and is yet to score a single league goal despite already making 19 appearances.

Another uncertainty for the club is the recent injury to star striker Diego Costa, who is still a doubt for the clash after picking up a knock in the 3-3 draw against Everton last weekend.
