Eden Hazard rescues point for Chelsea as Maurizio Sarri abandons philosophy

Chelsea star player, Eden Hazard has spoken on his side's Premier League 1-1 draw with Wolves on Sunday.

While they remain sixth in the league table, they are only two points behind fourth-placed Manchester United, with fifth-placed Arsenal just a point within reach, while the Blues also maintain a game in hand against their top-four rivals.

Wolves are welcoming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's in-form United to what will be a packed-out Molineux on Saturday night, and are going into it after picking up a point at Chelsea.

Wolves have enjoyed a superb campaign under Santo, sitting seventh in the Premier League, having been promoted from the Championship last season.

The 60-year-old Italian made six changes to the side which beat Dynamo Kiev 3-0 last Thursday in the Europa League last-16 first leg, with Hazard, Gonzalo Higuain and N'Golo Kante restored to the starting line-up.

"Their idea of possession required us to work very hard".

Higuain's angled effort was fumbled by goalkeeper Rui Patricio, who got away with it, before the striker diverted a header wide from Pedro's cross.

Wolves scored with their first attack of the game 11 minutes into the second half.

Chelsea sought an immediate reply. Maurizio Sarri had brought on Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi, both of whom came through the youth ranks at the club, are enormously popular and not given enough time on the pitch in the eyes of the fans.

Their positive start was nearly rewarded after 12 minutes when Gonzalo Higuain's shot was deflected to safety by Romain Saiss.

But even with Hudson-Odoi and Willian on the flanks and Hazard up front alongside Higuain, Chelsea struggled to find openings.

But Hazard had the last word, finding space on the edge of the area and sending a fine low shot into the far corner.
