However, Jose Mourinho's side restored parity just three minutes later when Frank Lampard headed in Eden Hazard's corner.

Lampard could have doubled his tally before the half-hour mark, but he saw his shot go wide.

However, moments later Petr Cech was called into action as he kept out Andrea Dossena's effort.

Chelsea ended the half on a positive note as they went 2-1 up with 10 minutes remaining, thanks to Hazard cutting inside and bending his shot past Vito Mannone.
