Chelsea are level at the break in their clash with Cardiff City as Eden Hazard cancels out Jordon Mutch's opener at Stamford Bridge.

It's all square at half time in the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge.

The visitors took a surprise lead when Ramires's back-pass towards Petr Cech was ignored by David Luiz and Jordon Mutch ran onto the ball and slotted it past the keeper with ease.

Chelsea nearly got back into the game through John Terry as he rose highest in the penalty area to head Juan Mata's corner at goal, but his effort hit the post and went wide.

The Bluebirds responded and could have doubled their lead as Whittingham whipped a dangerous free kick into the penalty area and Cech had to be at full stretch to tip the ball past the post with an excellent one-hand stop.

Jose Mourinho's side got back into the game in bizarre fashion as Cardiff keeper David Marshall was robbed of the ball when bouncing it in his area by Samuel Eto'o and the striker teed up Eden Hazard, who was left with a simple finish into an empty net.
