Just a couple of weeks after beating their Slovenian opposition 6-0 at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw.

Eden Hazard missed a late penalty that would have secured Chelsea's passage into the knockout stages, but, in truth, the Blues were far from their best as they head to Anfield to face Liverpool on Saturday.

Chelsea were left stunned after Agim Ibraimi's brilliant curling effort early in the second-half saw them go a goal down.

Nemanja Matic soon levelled for the Blues and many would have expected the unbeaten Premier League leaders to push on and find a winner.

But Jose Mourinho's team failed to create many clear-cut chances - Diego Costa seeing one effort brilliantly tipped over the bar - before Eden Hazard won a spot-kick with his lightning quick feet.

However, the Belgian hit a weak effort and MAribor held on for a famous point.
