    • KICK OFF
    • PENALTY SHOOTOUT
    • 90'
      There is the final whistle!
    • 90'
      Sterling gets past Cuadrado and stands a cross up at the back post from the byline. It drops to Can, who fires an ambitious attempt straight into the side netting. That could be Liverpool's final chance!
    • HALF TIME
    • 45'
      There is the half-time whistle!
    • 90'
      Ibe dribbles into the box from the right, beating both Filipe Luis and Willian. However, he runs into a Terry-shaped wall and concedes a free kick moments later in his attempts to regain possession for the visitors.
    • 90'
      We are into the first of four additional minutes!

      That is all we have time for this afternoon. Thank you for joining me, Tom Webber, and have a great evening.

      FULL TIME - Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool: Terry gave the champions an early lead, but Gerrard equalised moments before the break. It was a hotly contested game, but the Reds lacked the ability to add to their tally and get the win that they needed in order to keep their Champions League ambitions alive.

      The teams are heading back out on the pitch now, so the second half will begin momentarily.

      HALF TIME - Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool: It's all-square at the interval in a game that is showing no signs of an end-of-season wind down. The Blues took an early lead through Terry, but Gerrard got the Reds back on level terms shortly before the interval with a back-post header. Rodgers' men will have co

      Liverpool come out onto the pitch first to provide Chelsea with a guard of honour as they enter the field as champions for the first time this season.
    • 0'
      However, Liverpool have lost just one of their last four Premier League visits to Stamford Bridge, so may well come with confidence today. They have no other choice, though, if they want to keep pace with Manchester United. A little over five minutes remaining until kick off this afternoon!
    • 0'
      There's plenty of recent history between these two sides. Mourinho has won eight and lost just one of his 10 Premier League encounters with Liverpool as a coach. In the 11 league meetings between his two spells at the helm, the Reds won six and lost just two against the Blues. Last season, the Portu

      LIVERPOOL TEAM NEWS: Brendan Rodgers almost has Mario Balotelli back in contention after a foot injury but opts to field the same starting line-up as in the 2-1 victory over QPR last time out.

      CHELSEA TEAM NEWS: Mourinho makes five changes from the side that clinched the title last weekend. Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta are rested with Kurt Zouma and Filipe Luis coming into the defence. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is handed a first start alongside John Obi Mikel in midfield, so Nemanja Matic f

      Liverpool, meanwhile, currently sit seven points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester United and a qualifying berth for next season’s Champions League, so they cannot afford to drop points this afternoon as they visit the newly-crowned champions.

      A 1-0 win over Alan Pardew's side ensured that Chelsea will finish top of the table this season. An unbeaten Premier League run of 15 matches since the 5-3 defeat at Tottenham on New Year’s Day helped the Blues storm to the title, and Mourinho will surely not allow performances to drop off in the fi

      Hello and welcome to this afternoon's LIVE coverage of the Premier League meeting between Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. Jose Mourinho's men secured the title with a victory over Crystal Palace last weekend, but these matches always have a little something special about them. And with the
    • 1'
      We are underway!
    • 2'
      Fàbregas goes into the referee's book.
    • 2'
      Fabregas, still sporting his face mask, picks up an early yellow card for catching Sterling with his ankle near the centre circle. The forward has been down on the deck since the contact and it looks like it could be a bad one for him.
    • 3'
      Sterling gingerly makes his way off the pitch but looks to have enough movement about him to continue. When play gets back underway he soon trots back onto the field.
    • 5'
      G J. Terry Assist Fàbregas
    • 5'
      Fàbregas provided the assist.
    • 5'
      J. Terry scores for Chelsea!
    • 6'
      That makes Terry the highest-scoring defender in Premier League history, with 39 goals to his name!
    • 7'
      Liverpool look to instantly hit Chelsea back with Coutinho pulling the trigger from 20 yards. His first effort is blocked and the follow-up is diverted behind off the head of Filipe Luis. The following corner does not come to anything for the visitors.
    • 9'
      The Reds are just trying to take the sting out of this match early on, with Chelsea proving very physical and energetic so far. With a slower tempo they are unable to probe beyond the opposition defence, and possession is soon back with the hosts.
    • 11'
      Chelsea are settling on possession now, and they look quite adventurous when they push forward. Hazard finds Fabregas inside the box but when the Spaniard eventually pulls the trigger he sees his shot blocked by the closest Liverpool player.
    • 12'
      Fabregas plays a brilliant pass in behind the Liverpool defence, and Remy gets in behind Lovren to latch onto it. His first touch is decent, but it's not good enough to take it around Mignolet, who rushes off his line and intervenes by getting his hand on the ball!
    • 13'
      Johnson dribbles past Ivanovic and in along the byline from the left, but he takes a little too long to release the ball and ends up poking it into the side netting while Lambert was waiting for a cutback!
    • 14'
      Coutinho shifts the ball inside onto his right foot, creating space to the side of Zouma for a shot. He keeps his effort low but Courtois denies him with a stretched leg. Plenty of action at both ends at the moments.
    • 16'
      Can steps up and intercepts Hazard's pass towards Fabregas, and the former Bayer Leverkusen man dribbles forward before offloading inside to Sterling. The forward bears down on goal before lashing an effort wide of the target from 25 yards.
    • 18'
      Fabregas might have got away with one there! The Spaniard pulled on Sterling's shirt as he looked to race beyond him down the right, but no free kick is awarded. Play continues and Mignolet makes a hash of a clearance that nearly gifts Willian a goal, but Skrtel bails him out.
    • 20'
      A. Lallana gets yellow.
    • 20'
      Lallana becomes the latest player to go into the referee's book. His tackle on Ivanovic was late and certainly warranted the yellow card. Chelsea now have a free kick which they will look to pump into the box.
    • 21'
      The set-piece is flighted into the box for the head of Zouma, but Mignolet comes from his line and claims it before the centre-back can make a connection.
    • 22'
      Gerrard angles a lovely pass into the box for Lambert, who makes a clever run in behind Ivanovic. However, he went too early and is adjudged offside. Liverpool have played some rather attractive football when they've advanced into the hosts' half.
    • 24'
      STAT: Fabregas has assisted more goals than any other player in the top five European Leagues since the start of last season with 31.
    • 26'
      M. Škrtel receives a yellow card.
    • 26'
      Remy shows good feet to knock the ball past Skrtel on the left, but as he chases it in along the byline he is pulled back by the Slovakian. It results in a yellow card for the centre-back, and the subsequent free kick is punched away by Mignolet.
    • 28'
      ALMOST TWO! Fabregas in around the back but looks to be at too acute of an angle to shoot. He goes for it anyway, and an attempted save from Mignolet almost sends it into the back of the net! However, it spins away from the upright and goes out for a throw-in.
    • 29'
      R. Lambert goes into the referee's book.
    • 29'
      Lambert is booked for catching Courtois as he chased Coutinho's pass to the byline. He wasn't going to win the ball, so it was a bit of a needless challenge.
    • 31'
      Hazard looks dangerous when he gets the ball at his feet, and he dribbles at the defence before trying to slide a pass to the left for Fabregas. It sends him a bit too wide, but Can puts it out for a corner to make sure anyway.
    • 32'
      Fabregas' corner is punched away poorly by Mignolet, who somehow sends it behind his own goal. Willian's delivery comes to nothing for the hosts, though.
    • 33'
      Henderson rolls a fantastic pass in behind Zouma for Lambert, but the former Southampton man doesn't adjust his run and is beaten to the ball by the onrushing Courtois!
    • 35'
      SI G. Cahill SO Fàbregas
    • 35'
      G. Cahill comes on for K. Zouma.
    • 35'
      Zouma's afternoon is going to come to an early end due to injury, and he is helped down the tunnel by the medical staff; Cahill comes on in his place.
    • 37'
      Johnson pushes up on the left and receives the ball from Coutinho, but his cross is easily dealt with by Terry. Chelsea break through Fabregas, and after he gets away from Gerrard on the right he finds Remy. However, the Frenchman is marked tightly by Skrtel and the centre-back does enough to block
    • 39'
      Chelsea are awarded another free kick near the corner on the left, and once more Mignolet is less than convincing when he comes off his line. He makes just enough contact to get the ball clear of his box, though.
    • 41'
      STAT: Mignolet has kept 13 clean sheets in the PL this season - only Fraser Forster has kept as many.
    • 42'
      <ad></ad>Hazard gets the beating of Can down the left and cuts a powerful pass back towards Willian. It's deflected away by the centre-backs but the ball cannons off the Liverpool right-back before it goes behind, so Chelsea are given another corner.
    • 43'
      B. Ivanović receives a yellow card.
    • 43'
      Ivanovic is the latest player to go into the book for pulling back Lallana after the Englishman closed him down on the byline. He had to make sure the former Southampton man wasn't going to get into the box then!
    • 44'
      G S. Gerrard Assist Fàbregas
    • 44'
      Assist by J. Henderson.
    • 44'
      GOOOOOOAAAAAL!! GERRARD EQUALISES! Henderson flights the free kick to the back post for the captain, who peels away from Mikel and sends a header down past Courtois!
    • 45'
      There will two minutes of added time at the end of this half.
    • 46'
      We are back underway!
    • 47'
      Henderson plays a one-two with Lambert midway inside the Chelsea half before laying the ball off to Lallana in the box. The former Southampton man shoots on the spin but sends his attempt far wide of the upright on the opposite side of the goal.
    • 49'
      SO CLOSE! Sterling runs across the top of the box and spins away from Filipe Luis after reaching the left side. He cuts a pass back to Coutinho who fires a first-time shot that ripples the outside of the side netting! It fools a few people into thinking it went in!
    • 51'
      Liverpool continue to play positively in this second half, but both Lallana and Can flight crosses into the box that fail to find a team-mate. Rodgers will be pleased with his side's performance this side of the interval, though.
    • 53'
      STAT: Mourinho has lost just one of his 96 Premier League games as Chelsea boss at Stamford Bridge, winning 75 and drawing 20.
    • 55'
      GREAT EFFORT! Chelsea break at pace, with Hazard dribbling inside off the left. He passes across to Willian who stands up Johnson before quickly shifting the ball onto his right and shooting in one swift movement. The hand of Mignolet keeps it out of the far corner, but it was hit with so much power
    • 57'
      Almost the same again for Chelsea, though this time it is Remy who dribbles across the top of the box before teeing up Willian. The Brazilian's shot is deflected behind off Skrtel and Liverpool managed to clear the delivery capably.
    • 58'
      J. Obi Mikel receives a yellow card.
    • 58'
      Another yellow card is brandished by the referee, and this one is directed at Mikel, who blocked off Sterling as he attempted to dribbled down the right wing.
    • 60'
      SI N. Matić SO Fàbregas
    • 60'
      N. Matić comes on for R. Loftus-Cheek.
    • 60'
      Sterling is not closed down as he bears down on the box and he uses the space to feed Lallana inside the box. He takes a touch and shoots, with his effort looping behind off a blue shirt! Matic comes on in place of Loftus-Cheek for the remainder.
    • 61'
      Skrtel stays up following a corner and Lallana's cross from the right runs all the way through to him. He goes for a rather acrobatic effort by his standards and fails to keep it down, instead blazing the ball over the top!
    • 63'
      Liverpool have certainly enjoyed the greater share of possession in the second half. Chelsea are still threatening on the break, though their latest attempt breaks down as Hazard's attempt to feed Remy on the left rolls out of play before the Frenchman can bring it under control.
    • 65'
      Sterling again gets away from Filipe Luis relatively easily, and upon reaching the top of the box he attemps to roll a shot beyond Courtois. Cahill slides in and makes enough contact to take the pace off the ball so his keeper can claim it with even greater ease.
    • 67'
      Rodgers makes his first change of the afternoon, with 18-year-old striker Jerome Sinclair replacing Lambert.
    • 68'
      SI J. Sinclair SO Fàbregas
    • 68'
      J. Sinclair enters play, replacing R. Lambert.
    • 69'
      Liverpool's positivity has been curbed in the past few minutes, with Chelsea making a few more forays forward. That final ball just doesn't seem to be there, though, as the Reds' defence remains resilient.
    • 71'
      SI J. Ibe SO Fàbregas
    • 71'
      J. Ibe enters play, replacing A. Lallana.
    • 71'
      Hazard and Fabregas combine well down the left, but when the former gets to the byline and cuts a cross back into the box there is no one there! Remy was just lingering on the edge of the area, showing no intent of getting on the end of it.
    • 72'
      Another change from Rodgers now, with Jordon Ibe replacing Lallana.
    • 74'
      Fabregas carries the ball forward from the right, spring diagonally towards the box. Space continues to open up for him so he enters the area and chops onto his left foot to create room for a shot. He doesn't catch it well enough, though, and Mignolet makes a routine stop.
    • 76'
      Filipe Luis robs Can of the ball near the corner flag and drives into the box. His cutback is intercepted but Chelsea keep the move alive, with Fabregas receiving the ball at the top of the box before bulldozing his way into the area. His shot is deflected behind for a corner, though.
    • 78'
      Ivanovic finds Hazard in the centre of the Liverpool half with a brilliant pass, and the Belgian instantly turns and bears down on goal. He tries to dribble his way to the penalty spot but is thwarted at the last moment by a tackle from Lovren.
    • 79'
      SI Lucas Leiva SO Fàbregas
    • 79'
      Lucas Leiva comes on for S. Gerrard.
    • 79'
      Rodgers makes his final substitution, replacing Gerrard with Lucas Leiva.
    • 81'
      Sterling uses his pace to run around the outside of Ivanovic towards the byline on the left before firing in a cutback. It hits both the right-back and Cahill, deflecting the ball towards goal and forcing Courtois to get down and keep it out!
    • 82'
      Filipe Luis is yellow-carded.
    • 82'
      Filipe Luis is shown a yellow card for hauling back Ibe to stop Liverpool from counterattacking after he was caught in possession by the Reds man.
    • 83'
      The resultant free kick is whipped in by Henderson, but he sends it in far too deep and the ball bounces behind for a goal kick.
    • 84'
      SI J. Cuadrado SO Fàbregas
    • 84'
      L. Rémy is done for the day. J. Cuadrado is his replacement.
    • 84'
      Mourinho makes his final change of the afternoon, replacing Remy with Cuadrado.
    • 86'
      Sinclair receives the ball from Coutinho 20 yards from goal and tries to force his way into the box. The ball ricochets between Cahill and himself but Courtois races out to ensure that he is the first man to the loose ball.
    • 88'
      Time is running out for Liverpool now. Failure to win here could spell the end of their Champions League hopes!
    • 89'
      COUTINHO! The Brazilian pulls the trigger from 25 yards and his effort takes a wicked deflection off Cahill. Courtois is already diving the other way, but the centre-back's touch takes enough pace off the ball for him to be able to recover and smother the shot.
    • 90'
      JUST WIDE! Lucas clips a ball into the box that is headed away by Cahill, but only as far as Henderson. He controls the ball on his chest before releasing a volley that arrows just outside of the upright. It may well have taken a touch off Terry, but it wasn't spotted.
