Chelsea knew they must avoid third-straight defeat - Eden Hazard

Edin Dzeko's two goals earned Roma a point in their six-goal thriller against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Eden Hazard admitted avoiding defeat was a priority for Chelsea in their 3-3 Champions League draw with Roma.

Chelsea came into the match on the back of consecutive Premier League defeats to Manchester City and Crystal Palace, and were facing a third straight loss after the Italians rallied from 2-0 down to lead 3-2 with 20 minutes to go.

But Hazard headed in a late equaliser to secure a draw which keeps Chelsea top of Group C ahead of their trip to Rome at the end of the month.

"We talked about this,'' Hazard said of the preceding defeats. "But we gave everything at the end of the game and we scored one [to equalise] and maybe we should score another one to win the game.

"But one point is enough today after two defeats, it's not easy to bounce back against a great team but we did.''

David Luiz had fired Chelsea ahead before Hazard doubled their advantage but Roma stormed back, inspired by ex-Manchester City pair Aleksandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko.

Kolarov pulled one back with the help of a deflection before Dzeko scored a brace -- the first a stunning volley.

Hazard's leveller means Chelsea top the group with seven points, two ahead of Roma, with three games left to play.

Hazard added on BT Sport 3: "It was a good result for both teams, but when you are 2-0 up at home you must win the game."
