Eden Hazard had started all 37 of Chelsea's Premier League games thus far this season, but the Belgian sounds like he won't be able to make it a full 38. 'Emergency surgery' is never a good thing to hear when you're talking about our star players, but as emergencies go getting your wisdom teeth removed ahead of a meaningless game isn't too bad.

The FWA twitter has the story, because Hazard had to cancel his date with them tonight:

If Hazard's had his surgery today Wednesday he'll be amusingly doped up for a little while, and I'd be tempted to play him against Sunderland anyway, mostly to see what happens when an elite footballer gets really hopped up on painkillers and tries to play football.
