    End of 2nd Half
    FT
    PEEP!
    That's your lot, Chelsea have won.
    90+11'
    LAST CHANCE
    After a long throw doesn't work out, Everton get a free kick just inside the Chelsea half. Gray launches it in, Tarkowski wins it, but the header is gathered comfortably by Mendy.
    90+8'
    BOOKING
    Pickford dawdles on the ball outside his own area, and is dispossessed by Pulisic. Before he can shoot, Holgate pulls him back and is booked.

    SOFT HEADER
    The ball in finds Broja, who can only plant a weak header at Pickford.
    90+6'
    TICK, TICK, TICK
    Broja buys a free kick from a very frustrated Tarkowski.
    90+4'
    BREAK
    Sterling brings Chelsea out from their own half with a meandering long run. His ball to Broja is undercooked though, and Everton win the ball back.
    Thiago Silva is struggling here, and may have tweaked his hamstring. He's been big today for Chelsea.
    90+1'
    IT COMES TO NOUGHT
    Chelsea clear the ball in. There's better news for Everton though, as it's revealed that we'll have tne minutes of injury time.
    90'
    HOY IT FORWARDS
    Pulisics brings down Vinagre in the Chelsea half, and it's a free kick from a nice angle.
    89'
    CORNER
    Good work from Cucurella and Broja down the left wins yet another corner for Chelsea. From it the ball ricochets to Pulisic, who can only hook the ball well wide of goal from 15 yards out.
    87'
    RESUMPTION
    The OK to carry on has been recieved, and we've restarted.
    84'
    GAME STOPPED
    A policeman has run onto the pitch as there is a medical emergency in the stands. The game has therefore been halted while this can be addressed.
    83'
    SO CLOSE!
    Cucurella gets free down the left. He pulls it back to Sterling, eight yards out, whose shot is diverted wide thanks to a heroic sliding tackle from Mykolenko.
    82'
    THAT FREE KICK
    James tries to hook the ball over the wall and into the far corner, but it's way off target.
    80'
    YELLOW CARD
    Chelsea break and play Loftus-Cheek in behind Mykolenko down the right. Mykolenko hauls him down right on the edge of the area, and is booked.

    MORE CHANGES
    Havertz and Koulibaly depart, replaced by Broja and expensive new signing Cucurella.
    73'
    CHANCE!
    Patterson bursts onto a loose ball and drives into the Chelsea area. He squares it to Alli, who could shoot first time but tries to control it. The touch is poor, and he's soon got Azpilicueta in his way and can only meekly poke the ball out of play.
    71'
    DRIFTING
    After ten minutes of breaks and substitutions this match has lost it's rhythm. This will suit Chelsea, can Everton rouse themselves for a big finish?
    70'

    MINA HURT
    He's down and clutching his ankle, and it wasn't from a challenge. He looks in a bit of pain and might need to come off here.
