Hazard left out of Chelsea's trip to Stoke
Eden Hazard has not been included in Chelsea's matchday 18 for the trip to Stoke City after suffering a reported muscle injury.
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.
