FULLTIME: CHELSEA 0-1 QPR
Chelsea lose their first home game under Rafa Benitez as Shaun Wright-Phillips scores the only goal. QPR absorbed the lacklustre Chelsea pressure well and took their chance when it came, something the Blues failed to do.
Thanks for following it with me, and look out for more reaction to come on Bleacher Report
90+2' - Luiz gets the ball on the edge of the box, waits and lines up his shot which again goes over the bar
89' - Juan Mata gets the ball in the box and Ivanovic heads just over. Chelsea look desperately for the equaliser
87' - Ramires kicks out at Taarabt again and is lucky not to get a yellow card
84' - Clint Hill fouls Ivanovic inside the D and is booked for it. Luiz and Mata stand over it and it's the Brazilian's free kick which goes straight into the ten man QPR wall
82' - Another spell of Chelsea pressure is suppressed and QPR play the passing game until Ramires is frustrated and fouls Taarabt
79' - SUB: Ramires on for Frank Lampard
77' - GOAL! QPR have a corner, conceded by Azpilicueta. It's cleared at the near post and Taarabt passes to Shaun Wright-Phillips, who scores against his former club
74' - SUB: Chelsea replace Victor Moses with Juan Mata
73' - Hazard finds himself in space and releases Oscar, who can't control his first touch and sends it comfortably towards Cesar.
70' - Oscar tries a ball into the box but it's way ahead of everybody and rolls behind for another QPR goal kick
67' - That seems to have spurred Chelsea on and they're moving forward with much more purpose. Azpilicueta is caught and Hazard takes the resulting free kick, but it's too deep and there's nobody there. There is definitely a goal in this tie, it's just a matter of when.
66' - Chelsea get the ball in the back of the net and Frank Lampard thinks that he's equalled Kerry Dixon's scoring record, but he was offside. Still 0-0
65' - Hazard starts a lovely move which ends in a shot by Moses
63' - Chelsea are still failing to get any real movement behind the ball, and David Luiz lashes another shot over the bar
60' - Mackie is released on the edge of the Chelsea box but Gary Cahill makes a fine tackle and puts it behind for a corner. Shaun Derry has a free header but puts it behind for a goal kick.
59' - SUB: Marko Marin is brought off for Eden Hazard
58' - Marko Marin is fouled by Clint Hill. Play is allowed to continue and Moses' shot is saved by Cesar.
55' - Marko Marin receiving his yellow card after four minutes on his first Premier League start
52' - Chelsea are getting closer as Luiz's shot is blocked and falls to Torres, who draws a fine save from Cesar.
50' - Oscar plays a lovely little ball to Frank Lampard whose shot hits the crowd in the QPR box and is snuffed out.
47' - QPR concede a cheap corner which Marko Marin swings in. Torres gives it back to the winger who takes it through to Moses, who is roughly an inch behind it. Chelsea are getting ever closer to a goal.
45' - The second half is underway, as Azpilicueta passes the ball to nobody.
Halftime - Whilst I was experiencing technical difficulties, QPR made a substitution on the 16th minute with Shaun Wright-Phillips replacing Junior Hoilett.
Halftime: Chelsea 0-0 QPR. The visitors have done well at closing Chelsea down as the Blues looked frustrated and toothless. Chelsea are very, very lucky to still have 11 men on the pitch. Here's hoping the tie improves in the second half.
