Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink confirms that Eden Hazard is ruled out of Saturday's Premier League match against Aston Villa at Villa Park.

Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink has confirmed that Eden Hazard will play no part in tomorrow's match away to Aston Villa.

The 25-year-old has been struggling with a thigh and hip problem since March 9 when the Blues were knocked out of the Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain.

In Friday's press conference, Hiddink revealed that the playmaker, who has struggled for consistency this season, is not fit enough to play in the early kickoff on Saturday.

However, the Belgian has begun training with the physios, indicating that a return to first-team action may not be far away.
