Thanks for joining us for live commentary. Reaction to follow, so stayed tuned with B/R!
Chelsea 0-0 City
Balotelli for simulation. He went down like he'd been shot.
Nastasic rises highest at the corner but Cech catches comfortably!
90'—There will be two added minutes!
The Blues are on the front foot and look the most likely to score in closing minutes.
City playing long ball to Balotelli but Ivanovic is comfortable.
This is now very messy as both teams are desperate to control. Kompany makes another error but tackles Torres expertly to save his own blushes!
Aguero off, Balotelli on.
Moses surges forward on the right after Kompany's cheap give away. The square ball falls the Cole steaming forward from left-back but he blazes over.
Torres goes down under pressure but it's only the crowd appealing.
82'—Inside the final 10...
Conditions are bad, fatigue is setting in.
Quite a few stray passes on display here and this is anyone's game!
80'—No final ball
For both sides, the killer has been lacking. Torres has still only had one chance, whereas Silva has failed to craft any clear-cut opportunities for City down the middle of the pitch.
Romeu on, Mikel off.
Moses is on the counterattack, Kolarov in chase.
He skips over the Serbian's challenge but a dangling leg trips the winger up.
74'—Out of nothing
From a ridiculous angle, Tevez fires in a speculative effort and earns his team a corner. Chelsea clear.
The substitutions have ruined the flow of the game temporarily, and both teams are now looking to assert their control over proceedings again. Moses has been the more heavily involved of either sub.
Hazard off, Moses on!
Dzeko off, Tevez on.
66. City finding their rhythm again now with a succession of corners. Carlos Tevez about to join the action for the final 20 minutes or so

66'—Cole saves the day!
Finally, Silva gets into his stride and feeds a wonderful reverse ball into the box. the low cross is stopped by Cole about a yard from the line!
63'—Chelsea counter, yellow card!
The Blues finally grab the ball and Ivanovic runs about 60 yards before Zabaleta trips him. The Argentine goes in the book.
The Citizens wake up a little and start to enjoy possession of the ball. Wide areas look the only avenue for success right now as the midfield pivot of Ramires and Mikel locks down the area in front of Ivanovic and Luiz.
60'—CHANCE FOR TORRES!
The ball falls to the Spaniard as Mata's superb work down the right has City on the back foot, but he fires over!
After the free kick, City go forward quickly and Toure's firm shot is fumbled by Cech! The 'keeper smothers it at the second attempt.
This is more like it!
59'—Torres through on goal!
But the flag is up! A foul by Torres on Silva as he ran through. Remarkable.
