Hazard hoping to be fit for Lille clash with PSG

The Belgium international was forced off at the weekend, but his injury is not as severe as first thought and could be fit for the game againt the Parisians on Sunday

Eden Hazard has been given a boost in his fight to be fit for Lille's game with Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

The Belgian youngster was taken off in his side's 2-0 win against Dijon at the weekend with what was initially thought to be a damaged Achilles tendon, but the injury has been confirmed as a hematoma of the calf, with a medical examination taking place later on Monday afternoon expected to reveal the full extent of the knock.

Hazard scored Lille's second goal at the Gaston Gerard, before being substituted with 10 minutes remaining.

The win takes Les Douges to within five points of Carlo Ancelotti's side before they meet at the Stade Lille Metropole on April 29, although they are nine points adrift of leaders Montpellier.

The 21-year-old attacker has been linked with some of Europe's top sides over the past 12 months, and is widely expected to leave France this summer for a switch to the Premier League.
