An injury time goal from Eden Hazard salvaged a point for hosts Chelsea against a dogged Wolverhampton Wanderers in the English Premier League (EPL) on Sunday.

Raul Jimenez had put the visitors ahead with one of their only two shots on goal.

Hazard smashed the ball past Rui Patricio in the second minute of second half added time, after constant pressure from the home side, who are bidding for a top four place.

The Portuguese laid off the ball from wide for Jimenez to slot home.

Patricio made a sharp save shortly afterwards from striker Gonzalo Higuain and another from Willian in the dying minutes.

Chelsea had 22 shots to the visitors’ two and also enjoyed 76 percent of possession.

The result leaves Chelsea in sixth, level with Arsenal and behind Manchester United who were playing each other later on Sunday.
