  • The final whistle goes! An important victory for Chelsea, but a tough start to life as Sunderland boss for Paolo Di Canio.

    90+6
  • We're into added time in the added time...

    90+6
  • Torres then flashes a shot narrowly over from the edge of the box.

    90+5
  • Torres has the chance to feed the overlapping Benayoun, but goes the other way and the pass is too strong for Ramires.

    90+4
  • Good to see N'Diaye back on his feet. He heads off briefly but soon will be back on. Cech gathers from Sessegnon's pass after the re-start.

    90+3
  • N'Diaye is down and clearly winded, Luiz goes over to offer his apologies. No malice there, purely accidental.

    90+2
  • Luiz's clearance hits N'Diaye from a range of about a yard and leaves the powerful Sunderland midfielder on the deck.

    90+1
  • Four added minutes will be played.

    90
  • Bardsley's corner is poor and goes beyond everyone in the six-yard box and out for a goal-kick.

    90
  • Another corner for Sunderland after Wickham's long throw is headed behind.

    90
  • Mata makes way for Frank Lampard.

    89
  • Cech fists Johnson's corner away, McClean's scuffed shot is no danger and Luiz completes the clearance.

    88
  • Corner for Sunderland as Mata comes back to cut out a good move between Bardsley and Colback.

    87
  • All of Sunderland's players set up in an offside position, before moving as the free-kick comes in, but Cech gathers with ease.

    86
  • Johnson earns a free-kick in Chelsea territory as he runs into Oscar.

    85
  • Change for Chelsea as Yossi Benayoun replaces Eden Hazard.

    84
  • Jack Colback replaces Craig Gardner, who will miss the next two games after his first-half booking.

    82
  • Bertrand gets forward again and digs out a cross, but it is all too easy for Mignolet.

    80
  • Wickham is back on the field and making his feelings known to Luiz.

    79
  • Torres can't dig the ball out from under his feet in the box and Sunderland clear.
