Hiddink Rules Hazard Out Of FA Cup Game, Explains Costa, Oscar Clash

Eden Hazard has been ruled out of Chelsea’s FA Cup clash against Scunthorpe following a groin injury.

Hazard, went off in Chelsea’s 3-0 win against Crystal Palace and is expected to also miss the midweek game against West Brom.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the game against Scunthorpe, Hiddink said: “Midweek, I think Eden will not make, but we have to be careful because we do not want the player to fall again, so we must take a bit more time.

“It was unfortunate that he got a slip against Crystal Palace, but we don’t want him back too early.”

The Dutch tactician admitted that Brazilian duo Diego Costa and Oscar were involved in a scuffle but it has been resolved.

“It was a pity that our photographer yesterday had a day off because he would have had some wonderful pictures of the two bulls after the charge from behind by the smaller bull Oscar.

“He took a charge from behind and it was overdone and especially when you know it is Oscar – he got Diego and of course they scrambled and stood up which is a normal reaction and then chested a bit
without the threat of punching.

“It was the two bulls – I don’t like when they hit but with the intensity of the training session, we had a very sharp training session and it was on the edge.

“After that Oscar apologised in front of the group and he apologised for over reacting and then they looked at each other and start laughing.

“Jokes were made afterwards and it was a battle that happened afterwards. It is solved.

“If they have solved it in the way it has been done then there is no need for discipline. It was solved within seconds.”
