Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that Eden Hazard will return from injury "sooner rather than later".

The Belgian winger missed Sunday's 1-0 win at Swansea City after picking up a calf problem in midweek against Paris Saint-Germain.

"Every player is fit at this stage, with the exception of Eden, who should be sooner rather than later. It is still a little bit too early to say for sure," the Portuguese is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

Hazard has scored 17 goals in 46 games so far this season.
