Chelsea v Sunderland team news: Eden Hazard could miss out

Eden Hazard could miss his first Premier League match of the season when Chelsea host Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Midfielder Cesc Fabregas is suspended following his dismissal in Monday night's loss at West Brom, while goalkeeper Petr Cech (calf) is a doubt.

Striker Diego Costa is expected to start a second successive game after recovering from his hamstring problem, but Kurt Zouma (knee), Ramires (kidney) and Oscar (thigh) are out.

Sunderland goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon misses out after he damaged a knee in Wednesday night's 0-0 draw at Arsenal which secured the club's top-flight status.

He could be joined by striker Danny Graham, who is nursing an ankle problem.

Midfielder Sebastian Larsson, who finished the game at the Emirates Stadium limping, is fit, but defender Wes Brown and midfielders Liam Bridcutt and Jordi Gomez (all knee) remain on the sidelines.
