    FT: Chelsea 4-0 Juventus! Any fears that a Kante-less Chelsea in the second half would allow Juventus back into the game were dispelled in the space of just over two fantastic minutes in the second half, when the Blues' home-grown talents put the game beyond any doubt. James in particular was monstrous all evening.

  • 95'
    GOAL for Chelsea! The hosts have a fourth! Chelsea have a fourth! The German international is left with a straightforward finish, tapping home Ziyech's pinpoint centre from the left. Juventus are heading towards their biggest- ever UEFA Champions League defeat!
  • 92'
    Moise Kean exchanges passes with McKennie before racing to the edge of the area. However, the former Everton forward drags his low, left-footed strike wide of Mendy's goal.
  • 87'
    The Polish international makes a fine stop low to his right to keep Ziyech's placed effort from creeping in at the far post, after good work from Werner.
  • 84'
    Kulusevski is penalised for handball.
  • 83'
    McKennie has an effort on goal, but Mendy makes a top save. The Senegalese international is forced into his first real stop of the evening, making an acrobatic save to tip McKennie's crisp half-volley over the crossbar.
  • 80'
    Juve double sub: Kulusevski on for Chiesa and homegrown Koni De Winter on for Cuadrado.
  • 76'
    Chelsea double sub: Mason Mount and Saul on for Hudson-Odoi and Jorginho.
  • 71'
    Chelsea double sub: Azpilicueta on for Chilwell and Timo Werner on for Pulisic.
  • 69'
    A delay in proceedings as Chilwell is down receiving treatment. It appears as if he will be unable to continue.
  • 67'
    Juve double sub: Arthur on for Locatelli and Moise Kean on for Morata.
  • 65'
    James is having such an inspired performance that he didn't notice his team-mate Ziyech lying on the ground, instead dancing rings around a couple of Juventus defenders and winning a corner.
  • 61'
    Ziyech is penalised for handball.
  • 59'
    Juve sub: Dybala on for Bentancur.
de Chelsea en el 58'
  • 58'
    GOAL for Chelsea! The Blues have a third and are surely back in the race for top spot in the group! Loftus-Cheek starts the attack by breaking into the Juventus half down the right before a mazy run to the edge of the box, with Ziyech then picking out Rudiger in midfield. The defender's cross-field pass finds James in space, who in turn plays in Ziyech, before Loftus-Cheek's fine footwork in the area allows the 21-year-old midfielder to side-foot an effort in from close range.
de Chelsea en el 56'
  • 56'
    GOAL for Chelsea! What a fine strike! What a fine strike! From a similar position to where he forced Szczesny into an excellent save, the right-back chests down De Ligt's clearing header from a searching Chilwell cross, before rifling a low, right-footed shot just over the goalkeeper's right hand and into the far corner.
  • 53'
    Thiago Silva has an effort on goal, but Szczesny makes a top save! James' teasing set piece delivery from the left is met by the glancing header of Thiago Silva, but the goalkeeper dives low to his left to catch the effort.
  • 51'
    A delay in proceedings as Rabiot receives attention after catching the ball flush in the face.
  • 50'
    The home side are pressuring the Juventus defence from set pieces once more, forcing a host of corners.
  • 47'
    Rudiger is penalised for a foul on Morata.
  • 46'
    And we're back underway in London!
  • 45'
    HT: Chelsea 1-0 Juventus! A dominant half from Chelsea as they boss the possession and attempts statistics. The Blues have one foot in the last 16 and have blown the race to top Group H wide open again. For 37 minutes, the Blues were almost exclusively on top, driven in particular by Kante, who was having one of those tireless nights covering every blade of grass. It remains to be seen if his injury affords a way back into the contest for Juventus, but Chelsea are very much still in the driving.
  • 45'
    45+3: Bentancur misses the target. A spell of sustained pressure from the visitors brings only their second real effort of the half. Chiesa's route to goal is blocked so he tees up the 24-year-old midfielder on the edge of the box, whose curling, right-footed effort flies only narrowly wide.
  • 45'
    2 minutes added on!
  • 45'
    Hudson-Odoi is penalised for a foul on McKennie.
  • 42'
    Corner for Chelsea conceded by De Ligt.
  • 39'
    Corner awarded to Juventus. Chiesa is in charge to takes it.
  • 37'
    Chelsea sub: Kante is replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
  • 37'
    Szczesny makes a save. What a stop from the visiting keeper!
  • 35'
    Jorginho concedes a free-kick for a foul on Morata.
  • 32'
    James is penalised for a foul on Alex Sandro.
  • 28'
    What a clearance from the defender! Morata latches onto Locatelli's through ball before clipping a strike over the advancing Mendy. The Brazilian centre-back carries on running and hooks the effort away from danger just before it reaches the goal line.
de Chelsea en el 25'
  • 25'
    GOAL for Chelsea! The young defender gets the opener! Ziyech's corner from the left ricochets off Rudiger and falls kindly for the 22-year-old, who powers a right-footed half-volley into the roof of the net.

Yellow card

a Juventus
  • 23'
    The former Chelsea man is the first name in the referee's notebook after impeding Hudson-Odoi, following a strong run down the left from the 21-year-old. A promising set-piece position for the Blues.
  • 19'
    The defender, fresh from scoring at the weekend, collects a Kante pass on the edge of the area, but can only drag his low, left-footed shot well wide of the Juventus goal.
  • 15'
    Juventus are now gaining territory further up the pitch after surviving Chelsea's frantic start.
  • 12'
    Ziyech concedes a free-kick for a foul on Morata
  • 10'
    Morata has a shot blocked by Kante.
  • 9'
    Chalobah misses the target. James' searching corner from the right picks out the 22-year-old in the centre of the crowded penalty area. However, the young defender can only guide his header the wrong side of the upright.
  • 8'
    Corner for Chelsea conceded by Juan Cuadrado.
  • 5'
    Hudson-Odoi has a shot blocked by Locatelli.
  • 3'
    Kante dances into the Juventus box from the right flank, before cutting the ball back from the byline for Hudson-Odoi. His miskick sits up nicely for Chilwell, but the 24-year-old can only mis-hit his effort, with De Ligt's clearance going out for a corner.
  • 2'
    Corner awarded to Chelsea.
  • 2'
    Morata is penalised for a foul on Jorginho.
  • 1'
    Chelsea get us going in their usual colours from right to left while Juventus are in white and black!
