TEAM NEWS: Hazard missing for Chelsea at Stoke City

Mar 18, 2017 10:01:41 AMEngland
The Blues have confirmed that their star man misses out as they travel to face the Potters on Saturday afternoon

Chelsea are without Eden Hazard for their latest Premier League clash against Stoke City after seeing him suffer a couple of heavy challenges against Manchester United. 

The Belgium international has picked up a muscular injury and did not travel to Staffordshire with the Blues squad. Pedro and Willian will continue in his place, with Chelsea 10 points clear at the top of the table as they face Mark Hughes' side. 

Hazard is now a doubt for Belgium's international fixtures, but the injury is thought not to be serious. John Terry also misses out through injury and Nathan Ake makes his return to the Chelsea bench to face Stoke. 

Stoke City: Grant; Bardsley, Shawcross, Martins Indi, Pieters; Ramadan, Cameron, Allen, Arnautovic; Walters, Berahino

Subs: Given; Muniesa, Whelan, Afellay, Adam, Diouf, Crouch.

Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Willian, Diego Costa, Pedro

Subs: Begovic, Zouma, Ake, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek, Fabregas, Batshuayi
