90+3—That's it! What a great result for Jose Mourinho's boys. Chelsea run out 3-0 winners and it was well deserved
89—Schalke were caught short for Chelsea's third goal but Hazard still had a lot to do. He took the decision to go it alone and produced a composed finish. Classy from the visitors
88—Eto'o comes on for Hazard
87—Goal for Chelsea! And that really is game over. The Blues break from halfway and Eden Hazard runs clear before producing a clinical finish.
Draxler has been especially quiet in the second half and that's largely down to Chelsea's defending
83—Chelsea substitution. David Luiz comes on for Oscar. Bit of a reshuffle?
82—it's all gone very quiet in the Veltins Arena. Chelsea are knocking it around confidently and Schalke need to dig deep here
78—Goretzka replaces Meyer for Schalke
76—not surprisingly, Chelsea are looking a lot more comfortable now and their second goal has really taken the sting out of the home side. There could be more goals in this for the Blues
72—Mikel replaces Schurrle for the visitors
72—Kolasinac replaces Jones for Schalke

68—Goal for Chelsea! It's that man Torres again. A wonderful run from Oscar breaks kindly and the Spaniard knocks into an empty net

65—Jermaine Jones got away with one there. Already on a yellow card, he seemed to intentionally lean into the ball on the edge of his own box, but the referee ignored it
61—Aogo's cross is punched away by Cech. Schalke beginning to build up a head of steam once more

53—Boateng flights a ball into the box after Chelsea fail to clear their lines, but Cech claims it comfortably
