  • And the final whistle sounds in Monaco - Atletico have been outstanding, particularly in a first-half in which they blitzed the Blues to lead 3-0. Falcao was the headline act with a hat-trick before the break, but in truth all the Atletico players were impressive. Yet again, a Spanish team takes home the trophy.

  • Free-kick in stoppage time for Atletico. They're not in a rush to take it, knowing the job has been well and truly done tonight.

  • Luiz does his best to give Atletico a fifth goal when he turns Emre's low cross from the left towards his own net. The centre-back is fortunate to see his clearance come back off the post and stay out, though in fairness he did have Garcia waiting behind him for a tap-in.

  • Left-back for left-back as Cole departs and Ryan Bertrand comes on. Both are in the England squad, or they are at the moment.

  • Some serious amounts of money have been spent on players from Portugal who are appearing here tonight - Falcao, Luiz, Ramires and Christian Rodriguez.

  • Falcao heads from the field to a tremendous reception, even some of the Chelsea fans taking the chance to applaud the hat-trick hero for Madrid. Emre (remember him Newcastle fans?) is on in Falcao's place.

  • Filipe Luis has been another to shine for Atletico. The left-back makes yet another raid down the wing, allowing him to fire in an angled shot that Cech comfortably smothers.

  • Falcao's hunting a fourth when Garcia breaks the offside trap down the right for Atletico, only for his cutback to be cut out by a retreating Cole. Corner for the Europa League winners.

  • You'd reckon Sturridge's appearance in the squad tonight ends any possibility of a loan move to either Liverpool or Tottenham. I mean, tough to dash for a medical from Monaco before midnight.

  • Koke heads off, Raul Garcia coming on in his place. There's a change for Chelsea, too, as Daniel Sturridge replaces Mata.

  • Game slowly ebbing away. Chelsea are half-heartedly trying to get through again, while Atletico are happy to sit and watch their attempts with their defensive line looking so solid.

  • Gary Cahill is the first Englishman to score in the Super Cup since Michael Owen. You know, Michael Owen, the fella who used to play for Real Madrid, Newcastle, Liverpool and Manchester United. Oh, and England. A lot of times.

  • Chelsea continue to push forward in the hope of getting another back. Cole drifts in a cross but it's way over the head of all those players in blue.

  • Cahill had initially gone to win the Lampard corner and then suddenly found the ball drop at his feet, allowing him to poke it forward and through the legs of Courtois.

  • GOAL! Chelsea do get on the scoresheet at least, Gary Cahill the man to get the goal when a loose ball drops kindly to him in the box.

  • Corner for Chelsea as a Lampard effort is deflected over.

  • By the way, I've just read the official player profiles for Atletico Madrid. That's not the same Miranda that scored their fourth who is in the BBC sitcom of the same name.

  • Another Atletico attack, and another corner comes from it. Further goals could come yet, it's just whether they want them or not.

  • Ivanovic shoves a wayward pass inside when there wasn't a Chelsea player within 10 metres of it. Perhaps Di Matteo might consider giving Cesar Azpilicueta a little run-out.
