  • Chelsea 1 - 0 West Brom

  • Despite the best efforts from Olsson inside the box from the corner, and some acrobatics from Foster, the Blues hang for the three points.

  • Mata takes a slow march off the field to allow John Obi Mikel to take to the park for the final moments of the match.

  • Rosenberg spots Odemwingie out o the right of the box and finds him with ease, but the latter's strike to the near post is smothered by Cech.

  • Chelsea seemingly limping their way over the finish line, Albion throwing everything at them in the final third.

  • Four added minutes signaled and the Baggies seem revitalised on attack.

  • Lampard spots Moses out on the right and finds him with a good ball, but the Nigerian's return into the box is below-par and is cleared by the defence.

  • A lovely one-two from Oscar and Mata allows the latter to get in behind the defence, but his initial touch is too heavy andFoster has the time to drop low and smother.

  • Oscar goes down on the left and looks for a foul, but the referee waves play on and the Baggies make their way up field with some zeal.

  • Could Fernando Torres come and rescue Chelsea from the late fightback from West Brom, the Spaniard replacing Ba.

  • Entering the last five minutes of regulation time and one can sense the home fans are nervous with Albion pushing up.

  • Luiz forced to put the ball into touch with the Baggies looking ever more dangerous going forward.

  • Moses wasted a shot on goal at the other end, but it's worrying times for Benitez's men as Albion press up determinedly in the final ten minutes.

  • Good left-handed save to his right by Cech denies Odemwingie from the set-piece, with the Blues gloveman up to the task from the subsequent corner-kick moments later.

  • Mata gives away a good free-kick for Albion on the right after Odemwingie is adjudged to have been fouled. Meanwhile, Yacob is removed with Markus Rosenberg coming on in his stead.

  • Oscar wriggles through and engineers a shot on goal, only for Foster to once again thwart to the Blues forward.

  • The numbers game catches up with Mata down the right flank, with Victor Moses taking to the pitch in place of Hazard.

  • Oscar gets some decent power behind his shot, but Foster does as well to get behind the ball and smother the stinging drive.

  • No danger to Chelsea from the subsequent set-piece, with Olsson eventually giving away a free-kick for a tackle on Lampard.

  • Morrison delivers the ball to the far post for McAuley, but the ball is bumbled into touch for a corner.
