De Bruyne has already returned in three weeks, while Meunier and Hazard have been out for over two months

Dec 2, 2022

After being eliminated from the World Cup on Thursday, the Red Devils will have little time to heal and concentrate before returning to their various clubs to finish the season.

The Red Devils will not have much time to reflect on their crushing World Cup defeat. The Belgian players will have little relaxation the day following their split against Croatia, which is synonymous with elimination from the group stage, before returning to the front with their respective teams. We assess the situation.

The majority of the Devils will be back on the field in three weeks.

It is especially true with Premier League players. Manchester City and Kevin De Bruyne will meet Liverpool straight in the League Cup on December 22. The same can be said for Leandro Trossard, who will face Charlton with Brighton a day earlier, or for Leicester’s Timothy Castagne, Youri Tielemans, and Wout Faes, who will face MK Dons on December 20. Amadou Onana will rest for a few more days. He will return to action for Everton the day after Christmas, against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on December 26.

The scheduling will be similar for Belgians from the Pro League, such as Jan Vertonghen and Zeno Debast, who will meet Genk with Anderlecht in one of the knockout stages of the Belgian Cup on December 21. Toby Alderweireld will reappear in another poster of his one day.

Antwerp vs. Standard in the round of 16.

There will be no match for Lukaku, Meunier, or T.Hazard until 2023.
Yannick Carrasco and Axel Witsel will return to action in Spain the same weekend, in the King’s Cup against Areintero on December 22. Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard will have an extra week of relaxation before returning to Real Madrid on December 30 against Valladolid in La Liga.

Jérémy Doku and Arthur Theate, both Rennes players, will return to action in Ligue 1 on December 29 against Reims. Because Inter will not return to play until 2023, Romelu Lukaku will be able to blast him a bit more, with a big shock against Naples on January 4.

The only ones who will truly have time to relax will be the Bundesliga players, specifically Thomas Meunier and Thorgan Hazard, who will have till next January 22, i.e. nearly two months, to rehabilitate before taking on Augsburg with Borussia Dortmund.
