LONDON -- Eden Hazard scored in the 28th minute Thursday to give Chelsea a 1-0 win over Swansea to remain two points off the Premier League lead. Swingman Wilt Chamberlain Jersey . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. Samuel Etoo should have added a second goal just 15 seconds into the second half when Juan Matas cross found the striker in front of goal, but fired his effort too close to goalkeeper goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel. Despite late possession, the visitors failed to mount a serious comeback as Chelsea earned its eighth home win in nine league games this season. "As time goes on and you dont score the second goal, you feel as if you are going to concede but the boys worked hard and were in control defensively," Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said. After a quiet start, the home side found its rhythm and should have broken the deadlock after 15 minutes when A perfectly weighted pass from Etoo found Hazard, but the midfielder dragged his shot wide. Juan Mata then found himself with the ball on the edge of the box but his cutback to John Terry was wasted, as the Chelsea captain failed to connect properly and the ball sailed harmlessly wide of Swanseas right-hand post. Hazard eventually broke the deadlock after he picked up the ball midway through the opponents half, and despite being closely marshalled by Swansea defender Jordi Amat, found that extra yard of space to unleash a powerful shot which managed to squeeze past the Swansea keeper. With Chelsea looking for a second, Swansea looked dangerous on the counterattack, and the visitors best chance fell to striker Alvaro Vazquez in the 33rd. Jonjo Shelvey flicked his header across the box and Vazques connected perfectly but his side-footed volley was expertly tipped over the bar by Petr Cech in the Chelsea goal. After his miss at the start of the second half, Etoo had a chance make amends after receiving a cross from Hazard, but his shot dragged past Tremmels right-hand post. Despite sustained possession in the final 10 minutes of the game, the visitors failed to create any clear-cut chances as Mourinho extended his unbeaten record in the league at Stamford Bridge to 69 games. "We started OK, and the fact that we were in the game until the last second is positive," Swansea manager Michael Laudrup said. "We have to bring that positive thing into the next game against Aston Villa." Anderson Varejao Warriors Jersey . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. Stephen Curry Jersey . Emery skated the length of the ice and fought an unwilling Holtby during the third period of the Flyers 7-0 loss Friday night in Philadelphia. He was given 29 penalty minutes, including a game misconduct. But Emery did not face even a disciplinary hearing with NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan because rules 46. http:///...y-basketball-jersey/ . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. WASHINGTON -- Reggie Lambe spent most of Saturday night delivering pinpoint passes to his Toronto FC teammates, only to see those efforts squandered. But the Reds finally broke through in the 60th minute as Bobby Convey scored on a pass from Lambe, earning TFC a 1-1 draw with D.C. United at RFK Stadium in a battle between the two worst teams in Major League Soccers Eastern Conference. After working his way deep into United territory, Lambe found Convey wide open in the box for an easy tally. It was the midfielders first assist of the season, and Conveys first goal. "Right before that, Bobby had said, Lets switch wings for a bit," Lambe said. "I got the ball, drove forward and just saw him at the edge of the box. He finished brilliantly." For Convey, who played five seasons with United from 2000-04, the homecoming goal was a sweet one. "Its good to come back and score here," he said. "I thought Reggie played well the whole game. On (the goal), he looked up and played a good ball to me, and I was able to finish it." TFC (4-12-9) couldnt finish off D.C. despite a couple of good looks in the late stages of the second half. "These guys have to learn how to get results away from home," Toronto coach Ryan Nelsen said. "Im disappointed we didnt take all three points tonight, because I thought we deserved it." Keeper Joseph Bendik was called on for seven saves, including a rocket off the foot of former Red Luis Silva in the 67th minute. "I was just kind of telling myself to get there and get in a good spot," Bendik said. "I had just enough time to react to it. Then I saw it was Luis and I gave him a big smile." The teams entered the game among the bottom three in MLS in goals scored, so it figured offence would be at a premium. D.C. struck firsst as Dwayne De Rosario continued to torment his former employers. Custom Warriors Jersey. He worked through space and a hobbled Jonathan Osorio -- who would leave the match with an ankle injury -- to fire a blast past a diving Bendik in the 10th minute, giving United (3-17-5) a 1-0 advantage. "It took a world-class goal for them to score," Nelsen said. "I dont mind conceding world-class goals like that." De Rosario now has seven goals in four matches between the teams at RFK Stadium since he left Toronto early in the 2011 season, but Saturdays strike was just his third of the season. "I finally feel a little strength in my leg after two months of pretty much being out, not being able to strike the ball so my leg feels good, knock on wood," De Rosario said. "I like hitting the ball from that area." In a first half in which TFC was outshot 10-3, Lambe helped give his team its best opportunities, twice setting up Andrew Wiedeman for potential equalizers. But Wiedemans shot in the 28th minute went just wide and his header in the 33rd minute drifted over the bar. At the break, Nelsen left the motivational speeches to his players, who responded with a solid second-half effort. "Its always something said in the locker room to pump up the players -- from the captain to the youngest player on the team," Lambe said. "Were all pushing each other. We came back and were glad to get a point." NOTES: Saturdays contest marked the final game for Jeremy Brockie with Toronto, as his loan window closed. The 25-year-old forward will return to the Wellington Phoenix in the Australian A-League after tallying just one goal in 15 games. a Maximiliano Urruti, who joined TFC on Aug. 16, did not play Saturday.
