Chelsea needed a late Eden Hazard penalty to maintain their unblemished home record in the Premier League as the leaders beat QPR 2-1.

It took a special goal from Oscar and an Eden Hazard penalty for Premier League leaders Chelsea to claim three points from west London rivals QPR at Stamford Bridge.
