Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard will be out for at least two weeks after sustaining an injury against Paris Saint-Germain.

Hazard was forced off after just 18 minutes against PSG last night as the Belgium international damaged his calf.

Chelsea fans were left disappointed at the 23-year-old's early exit from the Champions League tie, however his replacement Andre Schurrle helped the west London side progress to the semi-finals by scoring the opening goal.

However it is not all good news for the Blues as Jose Mourinho has revealed Hazard will be out for at least two weeks.

Speaking after Chelsea's 2-0 win over Ligue 1 outfit PSG, Mourinho said on Hazard: "It is a calf problem, but I have no idea the dimension of his injury.

"Even when they are not serious, you cannot play for a couple of weeks."

Hazard will miss Chelsea's Premier League games against Swansea and Sunderland if the Portuguese tactician's prognosis is proved correct.

However Chelsea's star player could return in time to take part in the semi-finals of the Champions League against either Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich or Manchester United.
