Eden Hazard is red-hot right when Chelsea doesn’t need it, but that won’t change his tally in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday.

Christian Benteke scored in stoppage time to give Liverpool a point, but it’s a big wasted chance for the Reds, who can now finish no higher than sixth. Chelsea sits ninth with 49 points.

Hazard’s goal was scintillating, as the Belgian wound his way through a series of puzzled Liverpool defenders before side-footed a classy finish inside the far post.

The Reds looked good money for a second half equalizer, but either missed their chances or saw Asmir Begovic make a key save.

In one five minute span, Begovic stopped Daniel Sturridge and saw Kolo Toure and Adam Lallana both miss prime chances in front of goal.

Pedro came close to finishing the Reds off in the 89th minute, but Simon Mignolet stopped the former Barcelona man.

Stoppage time found another Belgian on the score sheet, as Benteke took advantage of an uncomfortable Begovic moment to head home an equalizer.
