Chelsea required a last-minute penalty from Eden Hazard to earn a 2-2 draw with West Brom.
Hazard was restored to the team after being dropped earlier in the week, and he played a huge part in the game, scoring one and creating the other.
The Chelsea opener came on the stroke of halftime. The Belgian fired in a shot that was well saved by Boaz Myhill. The keeper was not helped out by his defenders, as Liam Ridgewell dallied on the ball and Samuel Eto’o nipped in to score.
Shane Long served notice of his threat when powering a header against the post on 57 minutes, and three minutes later, he drew the Baggies level.
A header from Gareth McAuley forced a fine save from Cech, and Long showed the quickest reactions to nod home the loose ball.
A shade over 11 minutes later, the Baggies were in front, with Cech allowing a shot from Stephane Sessegnon to go under his body and into the net.
Willian should have rescued a point for the Blues, but he headed over the bar from four yards out.
With time ticking down, Ramires won a penalty, much to the anger of West Brom, who felt he dived. Hazard kept his cool to score.
