FULL-TIME
It ends 1-1 at Stamford Bridge.
Good result for the visitors... not so much for the hosts.

CHELSEA JUST SO POOR IN THE FINAL THIRD
This game should have been put to bed much earlier...

IN CASE YOU WERE UNAWARE
Everton just secured safety after winning 3-2, having been down 2-0 against Crystal Palace at half-time.
Four mins of stoppage time at the Bridge.
Everton roar back from two down to beat Palace and stay in Premier League
87'
HAVERTZ CHANCE
Havertz looks up to see where Kasper is, and the eyes of the ball means he doesn’t make contact when Ziyech plays him in.

FK LEADS TO NOTHING
Leicester can't capatalise. They keep the ball for a bit, but end the possession when Barnes receives the ball offside.

LEICESTER KEEPING IT TIGHT
They're playing a 5-3-2 when not in possession.

A MOVE TO MIDFIELD
James is further forward in midfield now. Tuchel clearly wants him as close to goal as possible.

CHELSEA CORNER
Close! Chalobah gets the header on target but Kasper makes the save right over his head.
Leicester really are woeful at set-pieces.

DEFLECTION & BOOKED
The free-kick is deflected and goes out for a corner that's reworked into an attack. Rudiger takes a shot but Kasper makes the save.
He tries to get the ball back a few moments later with a two footed tackle, and gets a yellow. The ref is met with some sarcastic clapping from the defender.

Evans gers a yellow after a very obvious foul.
It's riiiight on the corner of the box.
Let's see if Chelsea can capatalise on the free-kick.

THAT'S A MISSED SITTER
WOW! THAT IS NOT GOOD!
Lukaku's low cross across the face of goal lands to Pulisic, who misses an absolute sitter!
Yikes!

CHELSEA DANGEROUS FK
Incredibly close to the box, with the visitors' wall basically on the line of the 18 yard box.
Ziyech takes the shot, but it's tame, and it's an easy save for Kasper.
