GIF: Chelsea Rescue Draw Against West Brom with Controversial Late Penalty

Michael Cummings@MikeCummings37World Football Lead WriterNovember 9, 2013

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.

West Brom equalised in the second half via Shane Long's powerful header. Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech saved Gareth McAuley's initial effort but couldn't keep out the second.

The Baggies then went ahead through Stephane Sessegnon in the 68th minute. Cech will have wished he'd done better with the low shot.

In stoppage time, Chelsea won a penalty when Steven Reid was adjudged to have fouled Ramires. Replays suggested it was a harsh decision.

Eden Hazard converted the spot-kick to maintain Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's long unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge in league matches.
