Is this just the time of year where footballers suffer eye injuries? First Robin van Persie, and now Chelsea ‘keeper, Thibaut Courtois; looks like Eden Hazard’s been playing his own trumpet in front of the ‘keeper’s face on international duty.
They must have been watching Knocked Up after training…
The Belgian No. 1 was on the bench for Belgium’s 1-1 draw with the Netherlands, as Simon-I-cant-catch-a-cold-Mignolet was favoured over the Chelsea man. The 24-year-old was spotted warming the bench with a nasty looking red mark on his eye.
Fears of the ‘keeper suffering a spell on the sidelines spread quicker to London, than Vincent Kompany picking up an injury just thinking about walking. But, it was quickly noted how the 6ft 6 ‘keeps had been dealing with the eye condition during the Everton victory on the weekend.
Blues fans will be pleased to hear, that he can still play with the condition; and it seems like it’s not been effecting his vision.
Must be true, the Belgian’s not conceded a goal in five matches, saying that, not that hard when you’re playing teams like Man United. Congratulations to Anthony Martial on your Goal of the Month award.
The Chelsea man confirmed over Twitter his eye is ok, and he won’t be joining RvP on the sidelines for a blood clot.
Everything's ok with my eye, had it for 2 weeks and doesn't effect my goalkeeping ???

Panic over for the Stamford Bridge faithful, Thierry Henry just needs to stop Hazard playing stupid pranks on his Chelsea mate, or tell Marouane Fellaini to keep his fuckin’ elbows down in training.
