Eden Hazard was bizarrely sent off for kicking a ball boy as European champions Chelsea fell to Swansea City in the second leg of their English League Cup semi-final on Wednesday. 

A ballboy (C) lies on the ground and reacts after an altercation with Chelsea's Belgium midfielder Eden Hazard during the English League Cup semi-final second leg football match between Swansea City and Chelsea at The Liberty stadium in Cardiff, south Wales, on January 23, 2012.
