Chelsea winger Eden Hazard is expected to miss at least the next two weeks after suffering a calf injury in his team's 2-0 Champions League win over PSG on Tuesday.

Hazard lasted just 18 minutes in Tuesday's contest before being substituted with the calf problem, and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes he will be without his star winger for at least the next two weeks.

"It is some problem with this calf," Mourinho said following the match. "It's a muscular problem and, even when they are not serious, you cannot normally play for a couple of weeks, minimum, but I have no idea the dimension of his injury."

The Belgium international has netted 14 league goals for the Blues this term, and if he is to miss the next two weeks he would miss out on league games with Swansea City and Sunderland and possibly the first leg of Chelsea's Champions League semifinal.
