The boss reveals that the Belgian is sidelined for a fortnight.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that Eden Hazard will be out for two weeks after picking up an injury during the Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.
The Belgian was forced off early in the first-half against the French champions and it has since emerged that the attacking midfielder has damaged his calf.
“It is a calf problem, but I have no idea the dimension of his injury,” Mourinho was quoted by BBC Sport.
“Even when they are not serious, you cannot play for a couple of weeks.”
This would mean that Hazard would miss the upcoming Premier League clashes with both Swansea City and Sunderland.
Although these are perhaps not considered the most difficult of games for the Blues, with the title race hotting up every match is expected to be tough from now onwards.
It would also make the 23-year-old a major doubt for the first-leg of the Champions League semi-final, where the west Londoners will face one of Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid – with the draw being held on Friday.
Hazard has been arguably the team’s finest player this season and has scored 17 goals and provided 10 assists in 46 matches in all competitions.
Mourinho has said that the Belgian is a future Ballon d’Or winner and the side will undoubtedly miss the midfield ace during this absence.
