Premier League leaders Chelsea are without star forward Eden Hazard for their meeting with Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

Hazard reportedly sustained a muscular injury that has ruled him out of the match and has not travelled with the squad.

Pedro takes his place in an otherwise unchanged starting XI from Monday's 1-0 FA Cup victory over Manchester United.

Chelsea are yet to confirm any details regarding Hazard's injury, but it serves to make him a doubt for Belgium's upcoming internationals against Greece and Russia.
