Pablo Hernandez struck a late equaliser as Chelsea rounded off another controversial week by losing their place at the top of the Barclays Premier League after a 1-1 draw with Swansea.

The Blues have been embroiled in the furore over referee Mark Clattenburg's alleged inappropriate comments to John Obi Mikel, but they looked set to claim the spoils when Victor Moses nodded in his first league goal for the club in the 61st minute.

Swansea looked like they would be made to pay for their inability to craft clear-cut chances during a first half they had the better of, but Hernandez seized on Itay Shechter's pass to fire low beyond Petr Cech with three minutes remaining.
