  • The final whistle goes but the complaints continue as West Brom ask the referee to explain why he awarded that penalty. It is too late to make a difference now, of course, as Chelsea have survived a huge scare to draw 2-2 after a thrilling game at Stamford Bridge.

  • Tempers nearly boil over as Ivanovic is booked. Ridgewell had also received a yellow card before the penalty was taken for something he said to the referee.

  • GOAL! Hazard steps up and is the calmest man in the ground as he sends Myhill the wrong way to coolly equalise for Chelsea.

  • PENALTY! Referee Marriner points to the spot as Ramires takes a tumble under pressure from Reid. It is a huge call and West Brom are furious as it did not look like there was much in that challenge to warrant a spot-kick.

  • It is desperate stuff from Chelsea as Mata launches in a cross from the left, but McAuley and Olsson have been excellent in the air at the back for West Brom.

  • West Brom have three on two as they have a chance to break, but Brunt fails to kill the game off as he blazes over from 20 yards instead of opting to pass.

  • West Brom have everybody back as four minutes of stoppage time are signalled, with McAuley heading another corner clear.

  • The Chelsea onslaught continues as Terry's shot from the edge of the area takes a deflection off Mulumbu and goes out for a corner.

  • Clarke shuffles his pack for a third and final time as Popov replaces Amalfitano, meaning West Brom will have five at the back for the closing stages.

  • Cahill finds himself in an advanced position and beats Ridgewell to get in a low cross, which Eto'o misses with an attempted flick as another good opportunity is spurned.

  • Mata has looked lively since coming on and caused some problems with a couple of delightful dinked passes, but time is running out for Chelsea.

  • Willian sends in a poor cross from the right which is booted away by Ridgewell and when he gets a second chance to deliver the ball into the centre it is too deep and runs away for a goal-kick.

  • Amalfitano is booked following a foul on Ramires out wide on the left, but West Brom defend well from the set-piece as McAuley thumps a header clear.

  • West Brom's second change sees Morrison come on for Sessegnon to shore things up for the final ten minutes.

  • A glorious chance goes begging for Chelsea as Wiian gets in front of Ridgewell to connect with Hazard's left-wing cross, but he cannot hit the target with a disappointing header.

  • Clarke makes his first change of the afternoon as Anichebe comes on for Long, who has worked tirelessly up front for West Brom.

  • Myhill makes a wonderful save from Ivanovic in a goalmouth scramble and West Brom manage to get it away for a corner, but Chelsea will not go down without a fight.

  • Hazard picks up a knock following a clash of knees with Amalfitano and requires treatment. Chelsea need him to carry on after making all their substitutions and he gingerly returns to his feet.

  • Mourinho makes a double change as Mata and Mikel come on for Azpilicueta and Oscar in a bid to turn this game around for Chelsea.

  • Chelsea again try to respond in what has become an incredibly open game, with Hazard posing problems but West Brom looking menacing on the break.
