With just 15 minutes left on the clock at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea fans were no doubt getting anxious with Queens Park Rangers looking good for their 1-1 following Charlie Austin’s skillful finish past Courtois.
Jose Mourinho’s table-toppers restored their lead on 75 minutes when Eden Hazard slotted home from the penalty spot. However, controversy surrounded the awarding of the penalty, with many feeling that the Belgium international had gone over all too easily following pressure from Chilean international Eduardo Vargas.
The debate surrounding diving will no doubt rumble on after this latest drama, although Eden Hazard won’t mind after he cooly dispatched his eight penalty in the Premier League meaning he is yet to miss from twelve-yards in England’s top flight.

Nice dive by Hazard. But that's what players with speed can do. The ref had to give the penalty.
