Hazard rescues Chelsea a point

While Chelsea had improved in recent games, they did not look at their best on Sunday.

They had a lot of the ball with Wolves sitting back and looking to break on the counter but Chelsea struggled to break down the newly-promoted side.

Wolves would take the lead in the 56th minute thanks to some great linkup play between Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez.

Jimenez’s goal was also Wolves’ only shot on target vs Chelsea.

Eden Hazard would rescue Chelsea a point late on with a superb strike.

Hazard’s equaliser vs Wolves would be his 50th Chelsea goal at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba are the only two other Chelsea players to achieve such an impressive feat.

Hazard has now netted 13 and assisted 11 in 28 league games this season.
