Eden Hazard red cardEden Hazard will not have his three-match ban increased following an altercation with a time wasting Swansea ball ‘boy’, the Football Association has confirmed.

Hazard had originally been charged after the FA believed his punishment to be ‘insufficient’ which was laughable given the things they’ve let footballers away with despite the opportunity to retrospectively punish them. It seems as though common sense has prevailed after Chelsea wrote to the FA to tell them why he doesn’t deserve any more punishment that he’s already received and the Belgian will be allowed to return to action against Wigan on February 9th.

It’s the first piece of positive news we’ve had at Chelsea for a while now and he’s a vital player in the setup, especially as we’re lacking decent back-up for him.

I guess the media will now have to find something else to blow out of proportion now.
