Chelsea rescued a 2-2 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion with a controversial late penalty at Stamford Bridge.

West Brom had turned around a first-half deficit to take a 2-1 lead in the second half.

Samuel Eto'o gave Chelsea a 1-0 lead on the stroke of half-time, sweeping home after West Brom failed to clear the ball from their own box.
