Sunderland's hopes of beating Chelsea tonight have received a boost after the visitors suffered an injury setback.

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has been ruled out of the game at the Stadium of Light after picking up a knock against West Brom.

It's a setback for Antonio Conte's side, who are looking to make it 10 wins in a row.

Brazilian winger Willian is expected to replace Hazard, who will be a big miss for the league leaders, having scored eight goals in 15 appearances this season.
