  • Chelsea 4 Cardiff 1. The final score slightly flatters the Blues, but they were the better side on the day. Back to the drawing board for the Bluebirds.

  • Mutch wide to the left and delivers into the heart of the box. Terry does well to get across Campbell and nod clear. He takes a knee to the stomach for his troubles.

  • Very ambitious from Luiz. He wins the ball in midfield and keeps on going. He takes aim from a long way out and fires high into the crowd. Can get away with that when you are 4-1 up.

  • Cardiff win a free-kick just over halfway. Taylor lofts forward. Cech is able to rise above the crowd and pluck the ball out of the air. He looks to spark a counter attack.

  • Torres hasn't seen too much of the ball since coming on. He is obviously still working on his fitness. More to come from him in the weeks to come.

  • Torres back to Ramires, who sends Ivanovic down the right. He decides against a lung-bursting break and instead goes backwards. Cardiff chasing shadows.

  • Azpilicueta slices a clearance out of play. Cardiff still looking to grab a second and give their supporters something to shout about.

  • Ramires happy to go sideways and play keep-ball. Both sides would probably settle for the final whistle now. Still a few minutes to play out.

  • Caterhine wins another corner. Positives for Cardiff to take out of this encounter as they have posed problems. From the latest counter, Whittingham can't pick out a team-mate.

  • Ramires looks for Oscar, who has acres of space on the left wing. The pass towards him has too much on it and slips out of play. Cardiff tiring and leaving themselves vulnerable at the back.

  • Throw to Cardiff inside the Chelsea half. Catherine pushing on to try and make something happen. Credit to the visitors for not allowing their heads to drop and throwing in the towel.

  • Whittingham with a much better delivery this time. Cech watches it all the way though and is able to get a strong hand to the ball. Chelsea then clear their lines.

  • Campbell takes the ball off Ramires and sets his sights on goal. He shoots from 25 yards out and sees an effort flick behind for a corner. Game gone, but a chance to snatch something.

  • GOAL CHELSEA - HAZARD. The home side running away with it now. Hazard able to drift inside off the left flank. He cuts past Caulker and drills under Marshall.

  • Cardiff make their final change, with Gunnarsson replaced by Gestede. Last throw of the dice by the Bluebirds.

  • Catherine has to scoop clear from on the dead-ball line. Cardiff pegged back. They have to take a few more chances, but are leaving holes at the back.

  • Willian sprung clear as Chelsea counter. Three on one for a moment, but the opportunity is wasted. Willian fires straight at Marshall.

  • Mourinho celebrating with the supporters in the stands. He is enjoying himself now. On the field, Lampard concedes a corner. Whittingham takes, but the ball is cleared.

  • GOAL CHELSEA - OSCAR. What a finish. Ramires touches the ball into Oscar, who works the ball onto his right foot 20 yards from goal. The ball fizzes past Marshall in an instant.

  • Mutch grimacing again. He has worked hard this afternoon. He is back-tracking again now with Chelsea flowing forward.
