Chelsea forward Eden Hazard is out of Sunday’s FA Cup third-round clash at home to Scunthorpe because of a groin injury.

Hazard sustained the injury in last week’s win at Crystal Palace and the Blues have no intention to rush him back, meaning the Belgian could miss both of next week’s Premier League fixtures with West Brom and Everton.

Strikers Radamel Falcao (groin) and Loic Remy (calf) remain out, leaving Diego Costa as the only fit striker, so Guus Hiddink may call upon members of Chelsea’s youth squads.

Provisional squad: Courtois, Begovic, Ivanovic, Fabregas, Zouma, Rahman, Ramires, Oscar, Mikel, Traore, Djilobodji, Kenedy, Pedro, Costa, Matic, Willian, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Amelia, Aina, Loftus-Cheek.
