A late Eden Hazard header rescued a point for Chelsea in a cracking Champions League clash against Roma at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

David Luiz, playing in midfield, opened the scoring for the Blues after following up his own blocked through-ball with a cracking curling effort after just 11 minutes.

Things got even better for the hosts on the half-hour mark, with Hazard doubling their advantage after a blocked Alvaro Morata effort.

However, Roma got one back before the break, courtesy of a fine solo effort from ex-Man City full-back Aleksandar Kolarov.

That goal kickstarted the visitors’ night, and after the break they pushed for an equaliser.

Another ex-City man, Edin Dzeko, had never scored against Chelsea beforehand, but the lanky Bosnian striker levelled the scores on 64 minutes, courtesy of a magnificent volley.

Soon after, Dzeko would score again, heading home from a Kolarov free-kick, as the Italians completed their comeback.

There was still time for another goal, and it came courtesy of the Blues, with Hazard again on target, this time heading home from a Pedro cross.

The entertaining clash would end 3-3, a result which keeps Chelsea two points clear at the top of Group C, ahead of Atletico Madrid.
