Chelsea are looking to make it ten wins from ten games this evening but they’ll have to do it without one of their main men due to injury – Eden Hazard.
The Blues have been flying in the Premier League this season and look set to be serious title challengers throughout the campaign to come, but a lot of their recent run has been down to the form of the Belgian international.
Chelsea team tonight: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill (c); Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Diego Costa, Pedro. #SUNCHE

He’s linked up incredibly well with Diego Costa this year with the Spanish international being one of the highest scorers in the top flight up until now and if they can keep it up the Blues will be very hard to stop in terms of taking the title.
How they deal with Hazard’s absence tonight, though, could help define just how their season could go and, naturally, news like this has been reacted to on a grand scale on Twitter.
The Chelsea fans have had plenty to say about one of their key men missing and so here are some of the best reactions for your perusal…
I'm scared that we don't have the best player in the league tonight as Hazard is injured but Fabregas and Costa should win us the game.

I was rather sad about Eden Hazard (rightfully) sitting out today's match, but seeing Kurt Zouma's name with the subs makes me very happy.
