Wilmots hints Hazard starting spot may be under threat for Scotland clash

The Belgium coach has suggested the Chelsea star could miss out on the meeting with Craig Levein's side, after expressing dissatisfaction with the winger's work-rate
Belgium coach Marc Wilmots has hinted that he may drop Chelsea star Eden Hazard for his side's clash with Scotland on Tuesday.

Wilmots’ men go into the game against the struggling Scots in Brussels level on points with Croatia in World Cup qualifying Group A.

It has been reported that the 43-year-old was unhappy with the former Lille winger's work-rate in the 3-0 win over Serbia, something he referenced in his pre-match press conference.

"I spoke to Eden after the game," Wilmots told reporters. "On Friday I had to move him away from the centre and put him out on the flank to restore the balance in the centre with Nacer Chadli, Mousa Dembele and Axel Witsel.

"Eden should know that in football today changing from defence to attack and from attack to defence are essential. But I support him. Step by step we will get there."

Belgium will be without Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini and West Brom striker Romelu Lukaku, who are both out injured.
