Eden Hazard could be set for another spell out of action after leaving the Champions League match with Inter on Tuesday to have ice applied to his ankle.

The Belgian has only recently returned from a month out after his troublesome ankle had ruled him out once again.

He had bounced back with a goal in the weekend triumph over Huesca in La Liga and was performing well against Inter but in the 50th minute suffered a hard knock from Marcelo Brozovic, on the opposite ankle to the one that has caused him problems.

Hazard tried to continue but was eventually replaced in the 64th minute and immediately had the ankle wrapped and ice applied.

It doesn't look to be a serious injury but it's another stall in the comeback for a player whose career at Santiago Bernabeu has never really managed to get off the ground.

He made just 14 starts in La Liga last season after his €100m move from Chelsea, scoring just a single goal and providing three assists.

And with the inconsistent form of both Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo on either flank, Madrid need Hazard fit and firing as the games come thick and fast after the international break.
