Chelsea’s Capital One Cup semi-final defeat to Swansea descended into farce when Eden Hazard was shown a red card for kicking a ball boy.

The lad was not returning the ball quickly enough for the Belgian’s liking, causing a struggle between the pair which ended with the ball boy lying on top of the ball.

Hazard kicked the ball out from underneath him, giving him a boot in the ribs for his troubles.

Referee Chris Foy interpreted the situation as violent conduct and sent Hazard off.

The ball boy rolled around on the floor for a while before being led away from the pitch clutching his ribs.

    This whole thing was bizarre, and happened so quickly.

    The really funny bit was the ballboy rolling around doing his best CR7 looking for a free kick or something.
