Chelsea Star Eden Hazard has been ruled out for their game against Sunderland on Wednesday night.
The Blues are looking to extend their lead at the top of the table following Arsenal’s loss to Everton on Tuesday night but will be without the Belgian attacker at the Stadium of Light.
Hazard picked up a knock in training and will be likely replaced by Willain in the attack for the Blues.
Willian will be glad to return to the starting line-up after his sitting out in the recent games for the Blues and will hope to prove his worth to Antonio Conte.
Chelsea have gone nine-games winning run in the Premier League with seven clean sheets and will hope to increase their lead to ten against David Moyes side who has shown a bit of consistency in their recent games, winning three of their four matches.
Most pundit are already tipping the Blues for another three points but Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger has played down their title hopes after his side loss to Everton.
‘I believe they (Chelsea) will be one of the candidates. But there is no super favourite at the moment,’ he said.
‘When you look at the league it is down to consistency. It is very open, very interesting.’
