London: Chelsea's Eden Hazard will face a police investigation after he was sent off for kicking a ball boy in his side's League Cup semi-final second leg at Swansea City on Wednesday.

With the match poised at 0-0, and Chelsea chasing a 2-0 aggregate deficit, Hazard became annoyed with a ball boy who failed to return the ball promptly after it went out of play for a Swansea goal kick with 10 minutes left.

Hazard appeared to kick the youngster as he tried to retrieve the ball from underneath him and after a delay of several minutes, the Belgian midfielder was shown a straight red card by referee Chris Foy.
