Commentary By



Thank you for joining us this evening. 

The lads couldn't have given more.

We'll have full reaction on afcb.co.uk this evening and throughout tomorrow. 


Full time...

A brave performance from the Cherries, but we're defeated at the Bridge. 

The Cherries fans are on their feet for their side, who simply gave everything. 


Four minutes added on!

The fourth official has raised his board and there's still time. 


We're going for it!

Our final change sees Defoe on for Brooks. 


Goal for Chelsea...

With just seven minutes to go, Chelsea break the deadlock. The Belgian gets a shot away, which takes a big deflection and beats Boruc. 


A final substitution for Chelsea...

David Luiz is now on for Christensen, as the hosts make their final change. 


It's end to end!

King brings it forward for the Cherries, before it's intercepted by Chelsea. Hazard then up the other end has a shot, which is saved again by Boruc! 


Penalty shout?

Wilson does brilliantly to bring the ball down in the box and there's claims of handball on Azpilicueta, but the referee waves it away. 


Another Cherries change...

Mousset makes way and King is now on. A solid performance from the Frenchman. 


Hazard's turn to shoot...

The Belgian is in space on the edge of the box and tries his luck but Boruc is unmoved as the shot sails high. 


Wee Man hits one...

Fraser is making an immediate impact.

The ball falls to him on the edge of the box and he has a go, but the shot goes over Kepa's bar. 


Simpson goes into the book...

Hazard races forward and Simpson tugs his shirt to break up the move. A yellow card is shown to the defender. 


A first substitution for the Cherries...

Fraser is introduced in place of Stanislas, as the Cherries make their first change. 


Getting stuck in...


A second change for Chelsea...

Barkley is making way for the hosts, with Hazard now coming on. 

Off the post from Loftus-Cheek...

The winger surges forward and gets a low drive away, which hits the post and goes out of play.


A first Chelsea change...

The hosts are changing things up early in this second half. 

Pedro is coming on for Willian. 


We're back underway...

Let's start the second half as we ended the first! 

A big 45 to come... 


Half time...

Nothing between the sides here at the break. 

Eddie Howe's men grew into the game, but couldn't break the deadlock. 

Second half to follow... 


Superb from Ibe!

Ibe carries the ball from the back and works it nicely before it falls to Mousset, with the Frenchman's shot from range forcing a diving save from Kepa. 


What a save!

The big Pole in goal is there again! 

Willian receives the ball in space and is one-on-one with Boruc, but the 'keeper makes himself big to save well. 


Another good break...

Stanislas and Wilson do well to bring the ball forward, with Brooks then receiving it in the box, however the powerful shot hits Mousset and deflects over. 


In the thick of it...


Brooks has a go...

Rico finds Brooks in the box, who turns his man and gets a shot away but Kepa is there to save. 


Boruc saves low...

Giroud is found by Willian in the box and gets his shot away, but Boruc is there to palm away. 


Just wide from Wilson...

The Cherries break quickly with Mousset, who runs 30 yards with the ball. He finds Wilson on the right, but the shot is dragged just wide of Kepa's goal. 


Willian has a go...

The Brazilian receives the ball and makes space for a shot, but it's straight at Boruc and a comfortable save. 


Some early Chelsea possession...

The hosts are enjoying the ball and have won a series of corners in the opening five minutes, all cleared by the Cherries. 


We're underway!

Ross Barkley gets us started.  

Come on, lads!! 


Here we go...

The players are emerging and we're moments away from kick-off! 


In the building...
