Chelsea winger Eden Hazard is expected to be fit for his side's table-topping clash with Swansea City this weekend, reports the Daily Star. 

The forward, who picked up an achilles injury which forced him to miss Belgium's match with Australia last week, is expected to be ready to take on the Welsh outfit on Saturday afternoon.

This will certainly come as a major boost for Blues boss Jose Mourinho, who will be targeting a fourth straight Premier League victory this season. Hazard is without a doubt one of Chelsea's most influential players in the attacking area of the pitch, and he will be hoping to star alongside the likes of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas against the Swans. 

The Blues have been lethal in attack so far this season, having scored 11 goals in their opening three fixtures. Their recent 6-3 victory over Everton at Goodison Park was certainly a statement of intent from Mourinho's side, as they go in search of improving on last season's third place finish. 

Swansea, however, will be no pushovers, as they've made a fine start to the campaign as well. After securing a fine win at Old Trafford against Manchester United on the opening day of the season, the Welsh outfit have also seen off the likes of Burnley and West Brom so far this term. 


Both teams will be looking to continue their fine start to this season, whilst Chelsea may have one eye on next week's Champions League opener. The Blues will begin their European adventure against German outfit Schalke, before travelling to Premier League champions Manchester City on September 21.

It's certainly set to be a big week for Mourinho's side, and the 'Special One' will be hoping the likes of Hazard and Co. are firing on all cylinders. The Blues will be desperate to begin it with a win over Swansea on Saturday.
