FULL-TIME

Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

Premier League champions Leicester come from behind to draw against Chelsea, courtesy of Danny Drinkwater's brilliant equaliser.

Thanks for joining me.

Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

A late free-kick for Leicester...which hits the wall.

CLOSE!

Chelsea 1-1 Leicesterr

Ooof! Chelsea strike Tammy Abraham nearly made himself an instant Stamford Bridge hero.

He carves open the opportunity for himself, but his curling effort goes agonisingly wide of Kasper Schmeichel's post.

Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

N'Golo Kante drills a low shot towards goal...

...but it's straight down the throat of Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri wants to win this game.

He is ushering his players up the field with five minutes remaining.

Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

"That's why we're champions," sing the Leicester fans.

Absolutely correct.

Can they now find a winner??

GOAL - Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

Danny Drinkwater (81 mins)

And there's the equaliser.

Out of nothing, Leicester get the leveller. Chelsea defenders decide to sit back instead of closing down midfielder Danny Drinkwater, who steadies himself before letting fly from all over 30 yards out and nestling a shot into the bottom corner.

Thibault Courtois was nowhere near it.

SUBSTITUTION

Chelsea 1-0 Leicester

Last throw of the dice from Claudio Ranieri.

Riyad Mahrez, who has had a quiet game, is clapped off and Marc Albrighton comes on with 10 minutes remaining.

Chelsea 1-0 Leicester

Riyad Mahrez's strike from the edge of the box is tame, straight at Thibaut Courtious, who gets down with the long barrier like a cricket fielder to collect.

Saved a certain boundary there.

Leicester's Riyad Mahrez has not sparked into life today

Chelsea 1-0 Leicester

Leicester not getting the run of the ball, the scraps in the box are not falling their way. Will lady luck shine on them in the remaining 15 minutes?

Chelsea 1-0 Leicester

Leicester just have not been able to find their rhythm today and the stop-start nature of play is not going to help as they look to get back into the game.

Time is ticking away though.

Chelsea 1-0 Leicester

Full-back Christian Fuchs' corner goes all the way across the box and no Leicester player can get a foot on the end of the cross.

20 minutes remaining and the game has finally sparked into life.

Chelsea 1-0 Leicester

Leicester earn a corner and that will allow centre-back Wes Morgan to make his way up the pitch...

Chelsea 1-0 Leicester

Chelsea go ahead with their tails up against the Foxes. Can the Premier League champions find a response to end the season on a high?

GOAL - Chelsea 1-0 Leicester

Cesc Fabregas (66 mins)

Coolly done.

Cesc Fabregas runs up and pauses before sending Kasper Schmeichel the wrong way and slotting home into the bottom corner. His sixth goal of the season.

Schmeichel's hopes of a Golden Gloves award up in smoke.

PENALTY

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Chelsea are awarded a spot-kick after Jeffrey Schlupp is adjudged to have brought down Nemanja Matic on the charge.

Didn't look like much contact...

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Leicester's front men have not been able to do the business so far so right-back Danny Simpson takes matters into his own hands but his shot goes wide of goal.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Decisive, positive goalkeeping from Leicester's Kasper Schmeichel, who runs out to the edge of the box and punches away Willian's cross.

It relieves the pressure on his defence and that is excellent from the Dane.

SUBSTITUTION

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Chelsea make another change and it's another youngster from the youth team.

Fikayo Tomori replaces Branislav Ivanovic. The Serb's last appearance in a Blues shirt, perhaps?

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Cute, but not cute enough.

Leicester looking dangerous and winger Jeffrey Schlupp curls in a beautiful ball into the box which Shinji Okazaki back heels towards goal, but straight into the hands of Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

A bit of pinball in the Chelsea penalty area as the home side fail to clear their lines. Leicester can't get a clean shot away and Thibaut Courtois remains without having to make a decent save so far.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham almost gets on the end of a through ball, but Leicester captain Wes Morgan show good pace to recover and nick the ball away just as Abraham saw his name in the headlines.

Still goalless at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Tammy Abraham, a prolific striker in Chelsea's youth teams, was born in 1997.

Just sit down and think about that for a second, you know who you are.

SUBSTITUTION

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Leicester started the second half brighter and Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink has recognised that.

He responds by making two changes of his own as Bertrand Traore and Pedro come off for Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

It looks like the two half time changes has brought some impetus to Leicester's play, they are passing the ball around much more sharply and the upping of the tempo is clear to see. How will Chelsea cope?

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Leicester have a free-kick around 30 yards out and it's Danny Drinkwater who floats it in, but there's too much purchase on it and the ball sails out of play.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

A couple of changes for Leicester as Shinji Okazaki and Jeffrey Schlupp enter in place of Andy King and Demarai Gray.

KICK-OFF

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Back under way at Stamford Bridge.

As it stands

.
.

Will the table finish like this?

Manchester United are in seventh - but they will have one game still to play. 

HALF-TIME

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Chelsea the better team but have not been able to find a way past big Kasper Schmeichel.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

In, out, shake it all about.

Riyad Mahrez is thwarted just short of the Chelsea goal as he weaves this way and that between a number of Chelsea defenders. One of them manages to stick out a leg and halt the Algerian.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Pedro has the ball in the net but it's disallowed for offside.

Prior to that, Kasper Schmeichel is acting as a one man defensive wall, diving to his right to save Cesc Fabregas's rasping dive, before getting up and punching away Baba Rahman's lob.

Stunning performance from the Leicester goalkeeper so far.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

The Riyad Mahrez-Jamie Vardy combination nearly comes off again.

Mahrez swings a lovely ball into the box for Leicester team-mate Vardy, but the striker is lacking a few inches in height and can't quite grow enough to get on the end of the cross.

GREAT SAVE!

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Kasper Schmeichel really does remind me of his father Peter.

Junior needs all his 6ft+ frame as he leaps low to his left to get a firm hand and push away Willian's curler from inside the box.

That was heading for the bottom corner and Kasper's hopes of the Golden Gloves were nearly extinguished too.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

N'Golo Kante has just made an interception in his box.

Night follows day.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Chelsea peppering the Leicester goal with some ruthless strikes, you know the stingers that you get on the thigh? Ouch.

Eden Hazard first and then Willian but the visiting defenders stand firm... before rubbing their legs as the camera pans away.

CLOSE!

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Kasper Schmeichel doing his utmost to stay in the race for the Golden Gloves award. This time he gets low to keep out Cesc Fabregas's shot at the near post.

At the other end, Jamie Vardy races through and forces Thibaut Courtois off his line to intercept.

The game is threatening to burst into life, but hasn't quite done so just yet.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Leicester looking a bit flat? Not their usual zest and spark at the moment. PFA player of the year Riyad Mahrez has hardly seen the ball...

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Another chance for Chelsea front man Bertrand Traore, but he scuffs his shot from close in and Kasper Schmeichel keeps the ball out.

Schmeichel chasing the Golden Gloves award, remember. He's on 15 clean sheets at the moment.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

The Chelsea fans stand up and applaud defender John Terry, who stands up and acknowledges their support in return.

Minute 26, Terry's shirt number and all that.
