After a scoreless first-half, which caused Jose Mourinho to make two changes, the Blues were stunned by their opponents, who struck five minutes into the second-half through Agim Ibraimi’s sublime curler.

Chelsea eventually levelled. It had been coming, and they deservedly made the breakthrough! John Terry headed down a corner, the header may have been sneaking in anyway, but Nemanja Matic made sure, poking in on the line.

But a disappointing night for Chelsea ended with them missing an opportunity to snatch a late winner, with Eden Hazard fluffing his penalty, which was comfortably saved.
