According to reports surfacing this morning, Eden Hazard has not travelled with the rest of the Chelsea squad to Stoke.

The Blues face the Potters at 3pm on Saturday afternoon as they look to extend their 10 point gap at the top of the Premier League table.

With Manchester City and Spurs both playing tomorrow, the Blues could temporarily go 13 points ahead of the two with a win away at the Bet365 stadium.

The Belgian midfielder has been influential under Antonio Conte this season.

With 11 games remaining, the former PFA Player of the Year has scored 11 goals and four assists in the Premier League.

The midfielder was in the headlines on Monday night as Chelsea beat Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard was on the receiving end of a number of strong tackles from the Manchester United players, who were later fined for being unable to control their players.
