Eden Hazard late stunner rescues one point for Chelsea against Wolves

by -

Chelsea are level on points with Arsenal following a frustrating game against Wolverhampton at Stamford Bridge. The visitors broke the deadlock with striker Raul Jimenez, who gave the lead in their only effort on goal of the game.

Maurizio Sarri‘s men went close to scoring but were denied from Wolves’ resilient defence before Eden Hazard curled a low-effort beyond Rui Patricio in the 92nd minute. The Belgian star rescues one point for Chelsea with a superb finish in the injury-time.

Nuno Espirito Santo failed to defend the lead despite putting on two midfielders (Gibbs-White and Adama Traore) replacing both strikers Raul Jimenez and Jota. Hudson-Odoi, Loftus-Cheek and Willian were decisive as they added quality to Chelsea display on the flanks as well as in midfield.

CHELSEA (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, David Luiz, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho (Willian 72′), Kovacic (Loftus-Cheek 56′); Pedro (Hudson-Odoi 61′), Higuain, Hazard

WOLVERHAMPTON (3-5-1-1): Patricio; Saiss, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny; Jota (Gibbs-White 82′) ; Jimenez (Traore 89′)

Bookings: Doherty, Saiss, Jota, Rudiger

Scorers: Jimenez 56′ Hazard 90+2′
