Hughes Chelsea missing the 'dark arts' brought by Diego Costa

Hazard, 26, made his first start of the campaign in the Blues' 5-1 win over Championship outfit Nottingham Forest on Wednesday after making three appearances from the substitutes' bench in the Premier League and Champions League.

Antonio Conte will be without David Luiz who was sent off against Arsenal last weekend.

Midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko was involved in a minor vehicle accident on his way home from training on Thursday but the France midfielder was not injured and is expected to be in the squad on Saturday at Stoke.

'With Diego, I don't forget that we won the title together last season and we thank him for his efforts'.

Conte's stand-off with Costa had proved an unwelcome distraction this season after the Chelsea forward was told by the Italian that he was no longer part of his plans.

"We must pay great attention tomorrow".

Following an apathetic 0-0 draw with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, the news that Eden Hazard is fit and ready to play 90 minutes again comes as music to the ears of Chelsea fans.

'The most important thing is to go game by game. Tomorrow it will be really tough and we must be prepared in the tactical and physical aspect, be disciplined.

Kevin Wimmer is nursing a hamstring strain and could be one of four senior defenders unavailable for Stoke. I'm working with my players, I'm very happy to work with these players. "Sometimes red cards can happen, I was a player so I understand this type of situation". The Belgian could feature here, especially when you consider Chelsea's next two fixtures - Atletico Madrid and Manchester City. He has been carefully eased back into the first team picture after breaking his ankle on global duty during the summer.

Honestly, in the last game I felt a really good atmosphere in the changing room - a good link between young players and old players.

'I think on this issue, we want to thank him for what he did with this club and we wish him all the best for the future, ' he said.

Hughes, who has been using a formation with three men in the centre of defence, can not call upon the on-loan Kurt Zouma for the match at the bet365 Stadium as he is ineligible to face his parent club. "It is a very important game for us", said Conte.
