Eden Hazard has been eliminated from Chelsea's Europa League clash with BATE Borisov and now faces the Burnley race.
The Belgian would probably not have started in one of the smaller European games of the season, but the concern for Chelsea is that he may not be ready for the weekend.
Hazard suffered a back injury to Manchester United and boss Maurizio Sarri confirmed he will miss the match on Thursday at Stamford Bridge.

HAZARD STATISTICS SO THIS SEASON
Sarri went to him and said that before the trip to Turf Moor the club would try to solve the situation.
Chelsea are currently in third place in the Premier League after not losing a single league game, but they will desperately need to keep up with the leaders.
Both Manchester City and Liverpool are two points clear but the game against Tottenham could be an opportunity for the blues to overtake the champion.
Maurizio Sarri revealed the news at his pre-Cobham briefing on Tuesday
Before the weekend, Chelsea's full attention will be directed to BATE Borisov and the continuation of the European Championship.
Sarri's men are Group L leaders. They have won two games and won two, but with only one goal in each game.
BATE at home should offer a chance to increase the lead at the top, while the two lower teams MOL Vidi and PAOK meet in Greece.
