    • KICK OFF
    • 90'
      INGS FROM DISTANCE! The ball breaks to the striker and he is through on goal. Zouma catches up with him and the forward manages to turn inside and get his shot away, but it is high and wide. That was the moment for Burnley to make history!
    • 90'
      This game has all the feeling of a cup tie now as both teams are trying to capitalise on lost possession in the middle of the park. Mee goes down heavily in an aerial challenge with Willian and requires treatment.
    • 0'
      Boy...that escalated quickly! The Blues fail to stretch their lead at the top whilst Sean Dyche will be estatic for his side, who have showed that there is hope for survival yet with 12 games to go. Thank you for joining me this afternoon I have been Hayden Gribble and I hope you all have a great ev

      FULL TIME: CHELSEA 1-1 BURNLEY. Boos ring around Stamford Bridge as Martin Atkinson blows his whistle in a pulsating encounter. Branislav Ivanovic's 14th minute goal was cancelled out by Ben Mee's header nine minutes from time but the talking points are elsewhere in this game. In the first half, Jos

      What will the second half bring? With the Blues looking far from thier best, can the Clarets take advantage and restore polarity? The second half is coming right up!

      HALF TIME: CHELSEA 1-0 BURNLEY: Branislav Ivanovic's goal in the 14th minute seperates the two sides at the break but the main talking points in the opening 45 will be the two penalty decisions that have not been given to the home side. Ivanovic's shot looked to hit the arm of Michael Kightly in the

      TEN MINUTES TO GO! As Stamford Bridge fills to capacity, a win today could see Mourinho's men go ten points clear at the summit of the Premier League table. Or will Burnley upset their opponents and become only the second team to take all three points away from the Blues under Jose's reign? We are a

      THE FORM BOOK: Both sides have polarising form going into this clash. The Blues have not lost any of their last five games, winning three and drawing two. It's a different story for the visitors as they have failed to win any of their last five fixtures - with their last victory coming against fello
    • 0'
      STAT ATTACK: Look away now Burnley fans as this statistic might sting your eyes a little. The away side have not won a league game away to Chelsea since 26 April 1971, when Steve Kindon got the only goal.
    • 0'
      Meanwhile, Sean Dyche names an unchanged side to the one that lost 3-1 to Manchester United last time out. So, as it's as you were for the Clarets on an afternoon that could see them rise out of the bottom three if they get a positive result in West london today.

      The big news for the league leaders is that top scorer Diego Costa in Jose Mourinho's starting line-up for his first league game since serving a three-match ban. Meanwhile, there are four changes to the side that drew 1-1 with PSG in the midweek Champions League fixture as Kurt Zouma, Juan Cuadrado,

      Good afternoon and welcome to our coverage to today's Premier League clash between table-topping Chelsea and relegation-threatened Burnley. My name is Hayden Gribble and I shall be taking you through all the action at Stamford Bridge. But first things first, we have the team news coming right up!
    • 1'
      KICK-OFF! Today's match referee Martin Atkinson gets us underway as Burnley kick from left to right!
    • 3'
      The first corner of the game goes to the visitors as Courtois comes off his line and punches the ball away from danger.
    • 5'
      GOOD SAVE! Fine stop from Heaton as Cuadrado rises highest to a deep cross from Hazard but his looping header is tipped over the bar by the keeper.
    • 5'
      STAT ATTACK: The Clarets have won just two of their 31 Premier League away games (D5, L24) keeping just one clean sheet.
    • 6'
      CHANCE! Burnley are up the other end and Barnes takes his chances with a snap shot from distance but Courtois is behind the shot and saves comfortably. It was a chance out of nothing and a great strike from the forward.
    • 9'
      Trippier looks like he is under instructions to overlap Boyd on the right-hand-side but his run is blocked off bu Filipe Luis. It's quite balanced at the moment.
    • 11'
      Costa has yet to wake up in this game as he wins a throw for the Blues under close examination from Keane. It's a slow start from Jose Mourinho's men.
    • 14'
      G B. Ivanović Assist E. Hazard
    • 14'
      E. Hazard gave the assist.
    • 14'
      GOAL! The hero of Paris is at it again as Ivanovic gets his fourth goal in six games. Hazard gets to the byline and cuts it back to the defender, who slots it low past Heaton to break the deadlock. First blood, Chelsea!
    • 16'
      The blue tide continues to flow as Costa wins a corner for the home side on the left -hand-side. Fabregas swings it into the box but Heaton gathers.
    • 18'
      CHANCE! The Clarets win a corner up the other end but Shackell is unable to keep his header down under pressure and loops his effort over the bar.
    • 20'
      That moment of quality from Hazard to play Ivanovic in has been the only notable moment in a lacklustre game so far. Burnley are struggling to test the Chelsea back four as Courtois looks comfortable in between the sticks.
    • 22'
      STAT ATTACK: Branislav Ivanovic has scored 28 goals for Chelsea since August 2010, including four in his last six league and cup games.
    • 24'
      The home side are content to knock it around the park at the moment and leave their opponents chasing shadows across the Stamford Bridge turf. Hazard is looking dangerous when he cuts in off the flank as Ivanovic over hits an effort as it goes out for a throw-in.
    • 26'
      HALF CHANCE! Ings holds the ball up well and switches it out wide to Trippier who puts a superb ball into the box but it is deflected away from the oncoming Kightly who is unable to steer an effort on goal.
    • 28'
      A moment of possibility arrives for Burnley as Arfield takes a look up and sees Barnes running unmarked into the box but Courtois is awake to the danger and plucks the ball out of the air.
    • 30'
      OUCH! Ivanovic is incensed as Barnes knocks him flying in mid-air after both players challenge for a loose ball. The defender is remonstrating with the referee but Martin Atkinson is having none of it from the goalscorer.
    • 32'
      PENALTY? Kightly has his arm up in the box as he blocks a shot from the edge of the area from Ivanovic...but the referee waves away any penalty shouts. The Burnley man is lucky not to have given away a spot kick there!
    • 35'
      Courtois is distracted by the traffic in his area and just gets a fingertip to a cross and tips it away from danger. The keeper had to be switched on there as he struggled to get past the bodies in the box!
    • 37'
      Zouma is down after an aerial challenge from Barnes - who looks like he locks knees with the defender and brings him crashing to the ground. The physio is on but the man who is keeping Gary Cahill out of the side should be okay to continue.
    • 39'
      The Blues may have the lead but their attack is being frustrated by a well-organised Bunrley back four. Fabregas sends a cross field pass to the left but Trippier is able to head back the ball to the arms of Heaton.
    • 41'
      G. Boyd receives a yellow card.
    • 41'
      The first booking of the game is presented to Boyd as he sythed down Oscar, who was just too quick for the Burnley man.
    • 43'
      Two minutes to go - plus stoppage time - before the break as Shackell takes no chances and puts the ball out of play for a corner. The Blues take it quickly and the move loses momentum as the ball finds it way back with Courtois.
    • 44'
      ANOTHER PENALTY SHOUT FOR CHELSEA? Shackell overshoots his run and it looks like he pushes Costa to the ground. But as the home faithful cry foul the referee waves play on, much to the amusement of Mourinho on the sidelines.
    • 45'
      The teams are back out as the home side get us back underway.
    • 45'
      There will be TWO minutes of added on time.
    • 47'
      STAT ATTACK: Burnley have lost five and drawn one of their last six league trips to Chelsea before today's game.
    • 49'
      Oscar is back in his own half on defensive duties and scrapes his boot down the back of Ings' achilles heel and gives away a free-kick to the visitors. However, the striker is still not back to his feet and requires treatment. It looks like he will be okay to continue.
    • 51'
      CHANCE! Courtois quashes the Burnley attack as he tips Barnes' effort over the bar for a corner. The away side are really giving it their all early on in the second half and are looking very assured on the ball!
    • 53'
      CHANCE! Nervous times for the Clarets as Ivanovic flick on a Fabregas corner but Matic is unable to steer it home from close range under pressure from Arfield.
    • 55'
      COSTA'S THROUGH! The Spaniard runs on to a great ball from midfield and hits his effort from an acute angle into the ground and Heaton gets down quickly to snuff the danger out.
    • 58'
      SO CLOSE! Some lovely build-up play from Chelsea down the right flank leads to a fantastic cross from Ivanovic. Costa wriggles free in the six-yard-box but is unable to make a connection.
    • 60'
      With half an hour to go this game is still very close and Sean Dyche can be proud of his team's efforts so far. Both sides are just lacking that little bit of quality up front right now...surpising considering both sides can boast the likes of Costa and Ings in their ranks!
    • 62'
      M. Kightly is cautioned by the referee.
    • 62'
      HALF CHANCE! Costa is struggling to get on the end of the crosses right now as Filipe Luis sends a beauty in from the left flank this time but the Premier League top scorer is unable to steer it home.
    • 63'
      SI Willian SO E. Hazard
    • 63'
      Willian enters the game and replaces J. Cuadrado.
    • 63'
      Willian is introduced to proceedings from the bench as Cuadrado - who takes the Stamford Bridge applause - makes way.
    • 65'
      Burnley are still looking to get back into this game as Kightly's through ball to Ings is read well by Matic. The hosts are equally as composed but are really struggling to double their advantage.
    • 67'
      One of the only sub plots of the day has been the running battle between Zouma and Barnes as both have been duelling all afternoon. This time, the Chelsea man leap highest to flick the ball away from the Burnley striker, who is keeping the defender on his toes.
    • 69'
      Hazard has been fairly quiet since his assist for the only goal of the game but his skill leaves three Clarets players in his dust before Shackell gets over and covers the danger.
    • 70'
      The referee sends off N. Matić!
    • 70'
      IT'S ALL KICKING OFF! Chelsea are down to ten men as Matic retalliates to a poor challenge from Barnes. The striker follows through on his opponent and the Serbian's reaction is one of intense anger as he shoves him to the floor! After a brief scrum, Martin Atkinson has no choice but to send the Blu
    • 71'
      B. Ivanović is yellow-carded.
    • 72'
      SI Ramires SO E. Hazard
    • 72'
      Ramires comes on for Oscar.
    • 72'
      How will that change the dynamic of the game now that the visitors have a numerical advantage? Barnes receives a yellow card for his initial challenge on Matic as Ivanovic is booked for trying to stop the referee from brandishing the red card!
    • 74'
      PENALTY SHOUT FOR BURNLEY! The Clarets are waving for a spot kick as the ball hits Filipe Luis' arm in the box. Martin Atkinson is not interested and runs away. I've seen them given...
    • 76'
      OFF TARGET! Barnes has been the thorn in Chelsea's side all afternoon and he goes for a strike from 25 yards - yet his effort is off target and sails wide of the goal.
    • 79'
      SI S. Vokes SO E. Hazard
    • 79'
      M. Kightly is replaced with S. Vokes.
    • 79'
      CLOSE! Hazard cuts inside from the left and sets up Ramirez, whose shot from 20 yards flies over the bar. It wasn't too far off target there and made Heaton work to cover it.
    • 80'
      GREAT SAVE! Chelsea fail to clear a corner and the ball fall to Barnes, whose snap shot sends Courtois low to his right and tip it wide for another Burnley corner.
    • 81'
      G B. Mee Assist E. Hazard
    • 81'
      Assist by K.Trippier.
    • 81'
      BURNLEY EQUALISE! From the resulting corner, Ben Mee pulls away from the crowd of defenders and sends a bullet header past Courtois and sends the Clarets level! Can they do it with less than ten minutes to go?
    • 83'
      The visitors tails are up as it is two-on-two but Barnes sees his shot from just outside the area blocked. What a great finish to the game we have here!
    • 85'
      Mourinho was about to bring Gary Cahill but thought against it as the corner that resulted in Mee's equaliser was taken. Now, he turns to the veteran Dider Drogba to try and find a winner at the end.
    • 86'
      SI D. Drogba SO E. Hazard
    • 86'
      D. Drogba comes on for Filipe Luis.
    • 87'
      Burnley are really playing with some confidence and swagger now as stoppage time looms. Barnes and Ings are troubling the Chelsea back line as Mee tries to keep it in the corner but fails to stop Willian from winning a goal kick for the home side.
    • 89'
      STAT ATTACK: Before today, Chelsea had kept 16 clean sheets in their last 20 top-flight home games, conceding just six goals in that run.
    • 90'
      There will be FOUR minutes for either side to find a winner here!
