Late Eden Hazard strike earns Chelsea draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has once again defended his tactics following the 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, insisting that the Blues struggled against their opponents defensive style.

Willian thinks "every game is a final now" for Chelsea as they bid to bring Champions League football back to Stamford Bridge next season.

The Blues may return to the top-four as early as the weekend as a win over Wolves may take them above Manchester United, who play fellow Champions League hopefuls Arsenal.

The result left Chelsea FC in sixth place in the Premier League table and level on points with Arsenal before their clash with Manchester United.

"We need to improve in this kind of situation".

"In that case, we need to move the ball faster and movement without the ball, otherwise it is impossible to score against ten players in 20 metres".

"He is very able to play with one touch, but if you want to play one-touch football you need movements from the other players". "We were unlucky because we conceded a goal in the first situation inside our box - the first and the last, I think, in the whole 90 minutes - so we were unlucky for that". We can not play five or six touches in that situation.

Today, on Cook's verified Twitter page (via Redmond Pie ), he changed his last name to Tim (Apple logo). I used to say, "Tim, you've got to start doing it over here", and you really have.

"But, on the other hand, we need to improve with our attacking".

When I chose to play 4-2-3-1 Jorginho was not suitable.

When asked about the crowd's obvious cheers when Jorginho was about to be substituted, Sarri replied: "He is a very strong character and a professional player".

I will be very happy if he stays here, but if he goes to Madrid, good luck to him.

"But it's not easy, of course, because the problem wasn't the system, but our way of playing".

Hazard has been an important player for Maurizio Sarri's team this season.

"Hazard is a great player who can solve the situation in any moment, but during the match he was like the other players".

The Blues had over three quarters of possession but despite their time on the ball, just one opportunity was created for Gonzalo Higuain after 20 minutes.
