  • FULL-TIME: Home is where the turmoil is for Rafa Benitez's Chelsea as visitors Southampton come from two goals down to earn a point. Demba Ba scored his first Premier League goal for the club at home and his third in 11 days against their opponents before Eden Hazard put the Blues in a comfortable lead before the break. But substitute Rickie Lambert struck two minutes and 47 seconds after coming on and Jason Puncheon grabbed a point with a wonderful equaliser to push Saints three clear of the drop zone.

  • Southampton look comfortable at the back as they deal with another long ball looking for Demba Ba.

  • Juan Mata's cross is poor as is Fernando Torres' from the right which drifts straight out of play and he gets some terrible stick from the home fans.

  • Desperate defending from the visitors now as they sit back in numbers hoping to hold out for a point.

  • There will be four added minutes of stoppage time at Stamford Bridge. Are we going to get a dramatic late winner?

  • Gary Cahill is up in the Saints box and he claims he's brought down, but nothing is doing. Referee Michael Oliver waves play on.

  • David Luiz gives the ball away and Southampton look to counter, but the Brazilian wins it back and now they've been awarded a free-kick on halfway.

  • Chelsea will be 13 points behind Manchester United if the score stays like this.

  • WIDE!! Fernando Torres comes inside Jos Hooiveld before lashing his right-foot shot wide of the near post.

  • YELLOW CARD: David Luiz blocks Gaston Ramirez for a blatant foul and referee Michael Oliver has no hesitation in making the first booking of the match.

  • Frantic defending from the visitors as Demba Ba's strike is blocked and then Torres attempts a scissor-kick from the edge of the box.

  • We're in for a great finish to this game. Southampton heads never dropped even when they went two goals down tonight. It's been a great testament to the way Nigel Adkins' side have played.

  • SUBSTITUTION: Fernando Torres comes on for Frank Lampard. It will mean a 4-4-2 for Chelsea!

  • Guess who's coming on for Chelsea? Torres is stripping off and preparing to make his entrance.

  • At the other end, Chelsea win a free-kick about 30-yards from goal, but David Luiz's strike is charged down by the wall despite claims for a penalty by the home supporters.

  • Magnificent equaliser for Southampton and superb play down the left from 17-year-old Luke Shaw, who beat Cesar Azpilicueta before delivering a cross which sat up nicely for Puncheon to smash his effort into the back of the net in a blink of an eye.
