Chelsea 1-1 Wolves: Hazard strike saves the Blues’ blushes [Tweets]

Chelsea left it late to avoid suffering a shock Premier League double from Wolves, with Eden Hazard saving their blushes with a spectacular long-range curler.

The match saw chances come few and far between, with Wolves failing to get even a touch in the Chelsea box in the first half. But, the visitors were successful in keeping their hosts at bay as well, with the Blues coming close to scoring just once. The game though, would go on turn on its head post the break.

Pretty much against the run of play, Wolves took the lead, with Raul Jimenez finishing off a fine move by his side. For the final 35 minutes or so, it was all Chelsea, although with the near misses piling up, it seemed as if it was not going to be their day.

But, then stepped up Eden Hazard, as he so often has this season, producing a beautiful long-range curler in injury-time to earn the West Londoners a hard earned point. And, unsurprisingly, the Belgian was the toast of the Chelsea fanbase on Twitter in the aftermath of the game.

Meanwhile, the focus was also on the defence that conceded a goal with the first real chance that Wolves created on the day. David Luiz, in particular, came under scrutiny, with fans calling for Andreas Christensen to get more starts.
