That's it. Chelsea win 4-2.
All the goals were scored in the first half. Chelsea had plenty of new faces in the lineup, and there will be plenty to talk about in the coming days.
Check back with B/R in the morning for all the reaction.
90'—Seattle 2, Chelsea 4
The Sounders take a corner right as stoppage time begins. It's headed down toward Levesque, who nearly turns the ball in.
Instead the ball stays out. Almost a fairytale ending for Levesque in his final game.
90'—Seattle 2, Chelsea 4
No goals in this second half. It's almost over.
Kevin De Bruyne dribbles in from the left and blasts yet another shot way over the bar.
He'll have to do much better if he wants to break into Chelsea's first team.
86'—Seattle 2, Chelsea 4
Chelsea keeper Jamal Blackman comes out to collect a loose ball in the box.
Nothing is really happening. After an exciting first half, the second half has felt disconnected and the teams haven't seemed nearly as interested.
That's OK, though. This is a preseason friendly. It's just good to see European teams playing again.
Fredy Montero leaves the game. He scored twice, and both were nice. Steve Zakuani enters the match.
He's just returning from a horrific leg injury.
79'—Seattle 2, Chelsea 4
Gary Cahill clears a dangerous ball inside the Chelsea box.
The Sounders are still pushing for another goal. We haven't seen one so far in the second half.
Frank Lampard charges into the Seattle box and lays off for Kevin De Bruyne, who curls his shot high and wide of the post.
Should have hit the target. Now he's definitely going back out on loan.
Alvaro Fernandez leaves the match. Servando Carrasco enters.
75'—Seattle 2, Chelsea 4
Fernandez and Levesque nearly connect with a flowing move in the midfield, but Chelsea's defense intercepts at just the right moment.
More subs for Seattle. How many is that? Chelsea is at 11, I think.
Sammy Ochoa. Marc Burch. One more. Again, the names aren't announced on ESPN2.
Seattle's Brad Evans needs help limping off the pitch. He looks really hurt. That's a shame. You never want to see an injury, especially in a friendly.
67'—Seattle 2, Chelsea 4
English defender Todd Kane and English midfielder George Saville were the other two subs for Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Fredy Montero has flashed some more skill on the ball. He's surely turning a few heads.
Eddie Johnson makes way for local hero Roger Levesque.
Eden Hazard, Paulo Ferreira, Romelu Lukaku and Branislav Ivanovic leave the game.
Gael Kakuta, Lucas Piazon and two others—didn't see who—come on.
Alvaro Fernandez finds plenty of space and crosses from the left. Andy Rose is lurking, but the ball is a bit too high and deep for him.
The Sounders make a couple of changes.
Mauro Rosales leaves the match. Andy Rose comes on.
Jeff Parke makes way for Patrick Ianni.
58'—Seattle 2, Chelsea 4
OK, so this match has slowed down considerably. In the first half, we were averaging a goal every seven minutes or so.
That pace couldn't continue, even in a friendly, especially with all those halftime subs.
The Seattle fans still look excited, though. They're jumping around in unison. Well done.
Eddie Johnson times his run and stays onside. The through ball takes him past Chelsea's defenders, but they catch up quickly.
Corner to Seattle, which comes to nothing.
Branislav Ivanovic screams and writhes in pain after a challenge by Fredy Montero.
Seconds later, he's up again. Hmm, this isn't the Champions League, Bran. Save the acting for later.
Kevin De Bruyne, another newish signing for Chelsea, blasts a shot over the bar.
That's it. He's going back on loan.
Here are all of Chelsea's subs: Michael Essien, Gary Cahill, Jamal Blackman, Frank Lampard, Ramires, Kevin De Bruyne and Sam Hutchinson.
48'—Seattle 2, Chelsea 4
There's Ramires, working on the edge of Seattle's box for Chelsea. I guess he came on too.
46'—Seattle 2, Chelsea 4
Lots of changes on the field. I've seen Kevin De Bruyne so far for Chelsea. Plenty more, I'm sure.
Thanks, ESPN2, for showing us all the changes on-screen.
