LIVE
Post.
With easier opponents in Krasnodar and Rennes up next, I think both sides will be happy. That's all from us, thanks for joining us and see you again soon!
94'
FT: Chelsea 0-0 Sevilla!! Finished goalless at the Bridge!! It was a very even contest and the result is very fair. Chances were at a premium in the first half and while the second half was livelier, there were not that many clear cut chances. Werner and Zouma tested Bono in the second 45 while Jordan volleyed narrowly over from a corner. Sevilla will be a happy with a point away from home and Chelsea have finally kept a clean sheet after terrible defence in recent games.
94'
The Blues launch a ball forward, it's half clear, Chelsea continue to attack, the visitors clear the ball up-field and the ref blows for full-time!
93'
Free-kick to Chelsea inside their own half right on 93 minutes. Should have an extra minute. Kovacic is fouled by Vazquez.
92'
Jordan's inswinger is headed away. A long throw forward then goes to Mendy.
91'
Chelsea double sub: Abraham on for Werner. Hudson-Odoi also on for Pulisic. Could go to 94 minutes.
91'
Three added minutes and Acuna wins a corner off James.
89'
James miscontrols the ball, Sevilla sense the opportunity and then James clears.
87'
Jordan steps on Pulisic's leg from behind and is deservedly carded.
87'
Chelsea counter after a Sevilla move and Chilwell's ball in is poor. It's a regulation catch for Bono.
83'
Ocampos looks to find En.Neysri in the box and T Silva gets his head to it first. The former PSG has picked up a knock, but he'll be able to continue.
81'
It's been livelier since the break and Chelsea started the half well, but Sevilla have picked up. Even overall and I think this will end 0-0. That would be fair.
80'
Sevilla double sub: Luuk de Jong is replaced by En-Nesyri and Vazquez is on for Rakitic.
77'
A long ball is sent for De Jong, but he can't get there before Mendy.
75'
Torres crosses one into the area and Mendy catches.
72'
Navas passes to Ocampos, his cross touches Chilwell and it's a corner. De Jong heads towards goal, the ball hits James and Chelsea then win a free-kick.
68'
Chelsea threaten through Werner and Diego Carlos clears the danger.
67'
What an effort!!! Rakitic sends a corner to Jordan just inside the box and his volley goes narrowly over the goal! That was a thunderbolt!!
65'
Lovely play by Acuna to win Sevilla corner over on the far side. James doesn't like the call. Sevilla then win a second one.
65'
Ocampos is touching his knee and is not 100%. He's limping...
65'
Chelsea sub: Jorginho is replaced by Kovacic.
64'
Chilwell has his name taken after grabbing Ocampos from behind.
62'
Lopetegui's men have picked up in the last few minutes after that early Blues pressure.
61'
Chelsea sub: Ziyech comes on for Mount.
61'
Navas crosses onto the area and Zouma clears.
59'
Chilwell!! James fires a ball into the box and Chilwell heads at Bono.
57'
Sevilla sub: Suso comes off, Oliver Torres is on.
56'
Werner!! The German has a pop from 25 yards, it bounces just in front of Bono who holds onto it.
55'
A long cross-field pass finds Navas on this near-side, he gives it to Suso and the cross it hits the defender and then Suso before going out for a goal kick. First attack for the La Liga side since the break.
53'
11 v 11 once again now.
52'
Play continues with Sevilla a man down and the Blues are playing some good football now.
50'
Gudelj is down injured here and he has a cut just under his left eye. He was caught by Zouma and D Carlos. Nasty.
49'
Chelsea win another corner after James' ball in is blocked by Ocampos.
48'
Chance for Zouma!!! Chilwell's delivery is headed by Zouma, it hits a Sevilla man and the ball goes through to Bono.
47'
Pulisic gets the ball on this near side, he gets past one and Navas concedes the corner.
46'
Sevilla get us going again!! No changes.
45'
HT: Chelsea 0-0 Sevilla!! Half-time at the Bridge! An evenish first half here with chances at a premium. The Spaniards have had the best chance which was Gudelj's header that Mendy had to save while Ocampos and Suso had opportunities late on. Werner came the closest for the Blues, but 0-0 is very fair at the break. Back for more in a bit!
45'
Chelsea go up the other end through Pulisic, he looks for Werner who misses his kick and it's half-time!
45'
Opportunity for Sevilla!!! Ocampos!!! Poor clearance by Zouma from a cross and Ocampos' effort is easily saved.
45'
One extra minute.
45'
Suso!!!!! Lovely play by Acuna on this near side with a spectacular turn, he crosses and Suso heads wide at the far post.
43'
Acuna is cautioned for a clear pull back on Pulisic.
41'
James sends the ball into the box and Fernando heads away. James has a second go and D Carlos does the work in defence.
40'
Havertz looks to find Werner on this near side, but the defender gets there first.
39'
The ball has been mostly in midfield so far 0-0 at HT looks very likely.
36'
Mount sees yellow for a clear foul on Suso.
36'
Sevilla looking the better team now, but a draw is very fair. Clear cut chances have been at a premium.
34'
Navas brings down Jorginho.
33'
Sevilla sub: Gomez is replaced by Jordan.
32'
Sergi Gomez has pulled a muscle here and Sevilla's injury list in defence has just got longer... Already without Kounde. Jordan will come on and Gudelj will drop back from midfield to defence.
31'
Werner!!!! A ball into the box strikes a couple of players and Werner's effort is well caught by Bono.
30'
Ocampos runs down Chelsea's right and his cross in from a tight angle is easily caught by Mendy.
29'
Pulisic plays in Werner, the German goes around the keeper, but runs out the pitch. Werner was just off though.
28'
James goes down wanting a foul in Sevilla's half, nothing's given, Sevilla break and the move comes to nothing as Suso's cross is deflected to the GK. Rakitic's pass to Suso was overhit.
26'
Rakitic, Acuna and Gudelj pass the ball amongst themselves, Fernando then sends a cross-field pass and the move comes to nothing.
23'
Sevilla having some good attacking here after that save.
20'
Acuna sends another ball into the box and Chelsea have to clear.
18'
Mendy!!! The free-kick is launched in, Gudelj heads towards goal, it's deflected and Mendy has to make a fine stop!!
17'
Another foul by Jorginho, this time on Rakitic and it's a free-kick. He's already been booked and he took a chance there... That was a high boot.
16'
Chelsea passing the ball among themselves, but doing little with it. Sevilla are being much more direct.
14'
Jorginho loses the ball at midfield after a heavy touch and then he is booked for pulling Ocampos down to the floor. That was cynical.
13'
Chelsea having some possession and Sevilla are holding firm. 61% possession for the Spaniards so far.
10'
Chelsea slightly better so far, but Sevilla also dangerous going forward.
9'
Acuna's cross hits James and it's a corner for Sevilla.
7'
The ball strikes Kante's hand as he goes for the ball with Rakitic and it's a free-kick for the visitors.
6'
Dangerous ball in by Chelsea!!! The Blues pass the ball to James on this near side after a good run by Werner and Diego Carlos gets there to clear at the vital moment!
3'
Ocampos!!!! A throw-in falls to De Jong, he passes to Ocampos who fires wide, but it's offside.
