90’ Chance for Palace! Townsend twists and turns down the right, beating Azpilicueta and getting his shot away but it goes just past the far post!
90’ There will be a minimum of 5 minutes added time.
88’ Yellow card: Bakayoko is booked for bringing down Townsend on the break.

57’ Substitution for Chelsea: Pedro comes on for Batshuayi in a tactical switch.
55’ Close! Zaha skips away from a couple of challenges and feeds Townsend on the right. The winger looks to return the favour and find his team-mate in the middle but Azpilicueta just enough to intervene.
52’ CHANCE! Another opportunity for Fabregas as Zappacosta's cross breaks to him on the edge of the area but this time the Spaniard blazes well over the bar.
50’ CROSSBAR! Fabregas is so unlucky! He went close in the first half and clips the bar here with a fine drive from 25 yards. Speroni was nowhere near it.

18’ GOAL! Bakayoko equalises for Chelsea! Fabregas drifts a great corner into the area which Bakayoko heads into the ground and past Speroni! Crystal Palace 1-1 Chelsea!
15’ Chelsea haven't really got going yet, and really seem to be missing Kante in the middle of the park who is missing through injury.
