Hazard, meanwhile, also sat out the win over Benfica but looks to have recovered from his hamstring problem and is likely to feature at some point during the two matches.
Frank Lampard will lead the squad to the US, with the first match in St Louis on Thursday, before they travel to New York to play the manager-less sky blues in the Yankees Stadium.
Two academy youngsters make the 23-man squad for the trip, with midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek joining defender Andreas Christensen, who was an unused substitute in Sunday’s 2-1 win over the Toffees.
Ryan Bertrand also misses out on a seat on the plane thanks to a knee injury which also ruled him out of Sunday’s Premier League finale.
