With home advantage and being rated higher than their opponents, Chelsea quickly pressed forward to attack.

That was the situation of Martin Olsson penetrating the penalty area in the 11th minute, before being knocked down by Ashley Cole and John Terry.

Chelsea was lucky to escape a penalty after Terry’s tackle.

In the following minutes, Chelsea continuously pushed into the opposite field to apply pressure and break the strong defense of the away team.

Entering the second half, Mourinho was forced to save his personal dignity and bring on Eden Hazard – who was having a feud with him after the team was eliminated from the Champions League in midweek.

For the rest of the match, Chelsea continued to pressure and at one point controlled the ball 87%.

Hazard came on and played very well in the second half but it wasn’t enough to help Chelsea get three points.

Witnessing the deadlock of his students, Mourinho decided to send striker Fernando Torres onto the field to replace holding midfielder Nemanja Matic.

Being held to a draw at home at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea seemed to have no chance of winning the championship.

Meanwhile, with a valuable point from this match, Norwich still holds on to the slim hope of relegation.
