Hazard (calf) is unavailable for Tuesday's Champions League match against Atletico Madrid.

Manager Jose Mourinho was never very optimistic that Hazard would be ready, so it's not overly surprising that he was held out. The bigger test will be this weekend against Liverpool, a match that could very well decide the Premier League title.

Hazard, who will not play in Saturday's Premier League match against Sunderland, is considered a major doubt for Tuesday's Champions League match against Atletico Madrid, ESPN FC reports. "I wouldn't say he's definitely out at this stage," manager Jose Mourinho said, "but the fact that he hasn't trained with the group would suggest he still remains a doubt."

Hazard is a vital player for the Blues' success, although they are so good defensively that they could try to keep the match close and then have Hazard return for the second leg. Even if he is able to play Tuesday, it's possible that Chelsea could then hold him out next weekend against Liverpool.

Hazard suffered a calf injury during Tuesday's Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain and he is expected to miss at least two games, according to the Telegraph.

A huge blow for fantasy owners, and Chelsea's Premier League title chances. Hazard will likely miss this weekend's match against Swansea City, the following week's match against Sunderland, with a small shot at playing April 27 against Liverpool at Anfield.

Hazard picked up an injury during Tuesday's Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain and had to be subbed off after just 17 minutes.

Andre Schurrle replaced Hazard on Tuesday, and he could very well do the same this weekend in Chelsea's Premier League match against Swansea on Sunday.

Hazard is not in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Stoke City, although he is available off the bench.

A tough blow for fantasy owners, although Hazard surely has the ability to score in limited time, if he does make an appearance.

Hazard, who picked up a slight ankle injury during Belgium's international friendly against Cote d'Ivoire on Wednesday, scored from the spot in the 60th minute of Chelsea's 4-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday.

Hazard's goal was his first since he netted a hat trick against Newcastle on February 8, however he does have a goal and two assists in his last two Premier League matches. He'll look to continue his solid play next weekend at Villa Park.

Hazard suffered an ankle injury during Wednesday's international friendly with Cote d'Ivoire, but is expected to be fit to face Tottenham on Saturday, Sky Sports reports.

Hazard has been one of the best players in the Premier League this season, and is up there with Yaya Toure as the best player in midfield. If Hazard is unable to go this weekend, which would be a huge blow to fantasy owners given the reduced Premier League schedule, his next opportunity to play comes March 15 against Aston Villa at Villa Park.
