His absence has been inconsequential though as the Blues have been soldering on with five wins in as many games.

Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick in the game to help Chelsea maintain their perfect start to the Premier League season.

The Belgian international netted twice in the first half to cancel out Sol Bamba’s shock opener, before converting from the penalty spot 10 minutes from time to kill off the match.

Having trailed for the first time this season, the Blues showed good character to hold off Cardiff and added a late fourth through substitute Willian, placing them alongside Liverpool at the top of the standings.

Chelsea have a +10 goals difference while Liverpool who beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the day’s early kickoff are also on 15 points, but they have a +9 goals’ difference.
