PHOTOS: Matic celebrates, Hazard's penalty saved as Chelsea draw in Maribor

Chelsea Stamford Bride

Chelsea drew 1-1 away at Maribor in the Champions League but stay top of their group.

A goal from Nemanja Matic was enough to see Chelsea secure a point away at Maribor last night though Jose Mourinho will be frustrated that his players didn’t win and put qualification for the last 16 to bed.

Winger Eden Hazard also missed a penalty but Mourinho has refused to criticise the Belgian, suggesting he was Chelsea’s best attacking player during the game.

Mourinho went into the game making a few changes ahead of the important Premier League game against Liverpool this weekend and they struggled to break down a very stubborn and resilient home defence.

Chelsea are comfortably top of the group and a win in their next match should be enough to see them seal their place in the last 16 and a more favourable draw ahead of the first knock out round, which can make the difference ahead of the quarter-finals.

Here are some of the best images from the 1-1 draw in the Champions League last night.
