There's the final whistle. Chelsea win 4-1 after a good second-half performance, though the match wasn't quite the rout the scoreline would suggest.
David Luiz shoots well over the bar.
90'—CHE 4-1 CAR
Four minutes added on. The teams are just playing this one out.
86'—CHE 4-1 CAR
Chelsea purring now. Kim has to track all the way back to dispossess Oscar. Kim has been Cardiff's best player since coming on, but someone else should have been on hand to defend there.
84'—CHE 4-1 CAR
Cardiff will be wondering how this all fell apart. Remember, the visitors led 1-0 in this one.
Chelsea have looked dangerous for the past 15 minutes or so, and they've made their chances count. Cardiff have not, and Marshall is having a poor, poor match.
Hazard makes it 4-1, shooting from the left.
Frank Lampard set Hazard free down the left. Hazard cut inside from the byline and shot at Marshall, who really should have done better.
That's the final change for Cardiff.
Chelsea suddenly have a break-away. Hazard lays off for Willian, whose shot is saved by Marshall.
MORE ON THE GOAL
Gunnarsson gives the ball away in his own half. Ramires tips the ball to Oscar, who shoots from the edge of the box.
It's a good, swerving strike, but Marshall probably should have put a hand on it.
But now it looks over! Oscar makes it 3-1 to Chelsea with a great finish!
Taylor plays in Kim on the left. Kim shoots hard across the goal, and Cech palms it away.
Kim has been excellent since coming on.
72'—CHE 2-1 CAR
The match is really opening up now. Chelsea had a shot blocked, and then Kim created a bit of danger for Cardiff on the other end.
He's been lively since coming on. Can Cardiff find a late equaliser?
The home fans are singing: "Jose Mourinho, he sits where he wants."
MORE ON THE GOAL
Pardon, it was Hazard with the final ball, slotting through the defence to Eto'o, who took a touch, cut inside a defender and buried his shot at the near post.
He has such quick feet. That was a great finish.
Chelsea can! It's Eto'o, his first for Chelsea, set up by Oscar!
65'—CHE 1-1 CAR
This is becoming an absorbing contest. Chelsea are going for it, and Cardiff remain dangerous.
Can either team pull ahead?
Another change for Chelsea, and it's a positive one.
Striker Fernando Torres replaces full-back Ryan Bertrand.
Three at the back for Chelsea.
60'—CHE 1-1 CAR
Kim drives at Chelsea's defence, turning a couple defenders before dragging a shot wide.
