London: Eden Hazard equalised for Chelsea with a penalty in the sixth minute of stoppage time against West Bromwich Albion to salvage a 2-2 draw on Saturday and preserve Jose Mourinho's unbeaten Premier League home record as manager.

The soft spot kick was awarded after Ramires collided with Steven Reid, and Hazard made amends for a disciplinary breach earlier in the week by converting from the spot.

West Brom had been on course for their first league win at Stamford Bridge in 35 years.

The soft spot kick was awarded after Ramires collided with Steven Reid, and Hazard made amends for a disciplinary breach earlier in the week by converting from the spot.

Samuel Eto'o exploited a defensive blunder to put Chelsea in front before halftime, but Shane Long leveled on the hour and Stephane Sessegnon put West Brom in front in the 68th minute.

But the late penalty ensured Mourinho is still unbeaten in 66 home games in the Premier League, stretching back to his first spell as manager.
