Late Hazard’s goal gives Chelsea a point against Wolves

0

Maurizio Sarri insists Chelsea can still finish in the Premier League’s top four after Eden Hazard’s late strike rescued a 1-1 draw against Wolves on Sunday.


Sarri’s side were seconds away from another damaging defeat after Raul Jimenez put Wolves ahead at Stamford Bridge.


Hazard spared the under-fire Sarri’s blushes with his thunderous stoppage-time equaliser, but it was still a frustrating day for the Blues boss.

Sarri’s side had won three times in 10 days to temporarily silence reports that the Italian was facing the sack.


But Chelsea’s latest misfiring effort raised the possibility that Sarri is back on borrowed time in west London.


With Manchester United in fifth place after losing 2-0 to Arsenal, who climbed to fourth, Chelsea, languishing in sixth, are further adrift of the top four after another tense afternoon for Sarri.

Yet Sarri is adamant qualification for next season’s Champions League remains entirely possible.


“When you have to play only 10 matches, every match you’re not able to win is a missed opportunity,” Sarri said.


“But in the last six matches, we won four matches and drew the other two. So there is a little consistency in this moment.


“We have one match in hand, so we have to be confident.”


Although Hazard had salvaged a point for Sarri, his manager still wasn’t satisfied with his performance.
