Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 Mannone launches a free-kick towards the Arsenal box, but Chelsea clear and break. First Moses feeds Hazard, then Hazard releases Bertrand. The latter forces a corner, which Chelsea are in no hurry to take.
90' +2 Ramires gets yellow.
90' +1 Gibbs comes infield and plays a reverse pass in behind the Chelsea defence for Giroud. The Frenchman is through, he takes a touch, steadies himself, and blasts the ball into the side-netting. A great chance for Arsenal wasted by Giroud.
90' Four minutes of stoppage time...
89' Arsenal are struggling to create any clear-cut chances against a deep Chelsea defence. Cazorla feeds Gervinho down the left, who returns the pass, but the Spaniard snatches at his shot and fires over the bar.
85' Chelsea are operating very defensively now, with Ryan Bertrand brought on to further solidify the defence. He's playing just ahead of Cole, with Moses switched to the right.
84' R. Bertrand enters the game and replaces Mata.
83' OFF THE POST!! Ramires gives away a free-kick on the edge of the box, and Cazorla's resulting cross is met by Koscielny. The Frenchman clatters his header against the post, but the linesmen's flag was raised for offside anyway.
81' G. Cahill enters the game and replaces David Luiz.
A hobbling Luiz is replaced by Gary Cahill for the final ten minutes.
80' A delicate one-two on the edge of the box between Torres and Mata sees the latter brought down by Gibbs. The free-kick is in a dangerous position, but Mata fires his shot into the wall. Giroud headbutts Koscielny in his attempt to block the shot.
