90'
FULL-TIME
Chelsea take the three points here then, and deservedly so. Olivier Giroud's goal is the difference and in truth Liverpool never quite managed to assert themselves on the game. Chelsea's top four hopes are well and truly alive after this result. Thanks for joining us.
90'
MISS
Dominic Solanke fluffs his lines, heading wide from a Mane cross and surely that is that.
90'
INJURY TIME
As we head into injury time, if this result holds Chelsea will find themselves knocking on the door of the top four, a situation few would have anticipated after their poor start to the season.
90'
Yellow Card
Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea)
80'
ALONSO
Marcos Alonso very nearly scores one of the goals of the season, smacking a volley across the goal with power and superb technique. Karius was helpless there and you get the feeling that had that gone in, it would have been game over.
79'
Yellow Card
Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)
8'
CAGEY
Its a cagey start to the game here with both teams feeling the other out.
78'
RAISE
This isn't a game that will live long in the memory to be honest, as we enter the last 10 minutes. Liverpool are starting to raise their game a little but they aren't really threatening Chelsea.
74'
Substitution
Dominic Solanke (on). Andy Robertson (off). (Liverpool)
72'
COMFORTABLE
We are 20 minutes from the final whistle now and Liverpool are offering very little in an attacking sense. Chelsea look comfortable.
66'
KLOPP
Jurgen Klopp is cutting a rather frustrated figure down on the sideline. He is never one to hide his emotions and he clearly wants the result here.
62'
HOUR GONE
With an hour gone, Chelsea have the lead and that doesn't look too much like changing any time soon. Liverpool have been quiet so far, which is hardly surprising in the context of their recent exploits.
59'
Substitution
Jordan Henderson (on). Nathaniel Clyne (off). (Liverpool)
90'
Substitution
Pedro (on). Cesc Fabregas (off). (Chelsea)
89'
Substitution
Davide Zappacosta (on). Victor Moses (off). (Chelsea)
89'
Substitution
Alberto Moreno (on). James Milner (off). (Liverpool)
88'
MOTIONS
Both sides make changes now but are seemingly going through the motions.
86'
Substitution
Willian (on). Eden Hazard (off). (Chelsea)
85'
Yellow Card
Dominic Solanke (Liverpool)
85'
STIFLED
We seem to be creeping towards an inevitable result here now, with Liverpool stifled by a resolute Chelsea backline.
81'
Yellow Card
Victor Moses (Chelsea)
40'
Yellow Card
Nathaniel Clyne (Liverpool)
40'
BOOKINGS
A couple of Liverpool players go into the book in quick succession here, first Salah and then Clyne.
39'
Yellow Card
Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
4'
SHOT
Roberto Firmino has the first shot of the game after a good ball from Trent Alexander-Arnold. Courtois deals with it fairly comfortably in the end.
38'
COMPLEXION
That goal has changed the complexion of the game completely after Liverpool had the best of the early exchanges. Can Liverpool muster the energy to get back into this after their heroics against Roma?
34'
HEADER
A lovely header after a good move by Chelsea puts the home side in front. Tiemoue Bakayoko found Moses on the right, who looped a cross into the middle for Giroud to meet and head home. 1-0 Chelsea!
32'
Goal
Olivier Giroud. Assist by Victor Moses (Chelsea)
32'
GOOOAAALLL!!!
Olivier Giroud opens the scoring for Chelsea!
57'
OFFSIDE
Eden Hazard goes very close to doubling Chelsea's lead before Antonio Rudiger gets the ball in the net. The German centre-half looks up to see the linesman's flag pointing in his direction and Liverpool survive.
53'
NIGGLING
There is a level of niggle creeping its way into the game as it progresses, with lots of free-kicks and fouls in quick succession.
48'
FIZZ
Chelsea have started the second half in the same way they ended the first, on the front foot. Victor Moses fizzes a low cross across the goal.
47'
UNDERWAY
We're underway again for the second half.
45'
HALF-TIME
The half-time whistle goes and its Chelsea who lead at the break.
45'
INJURY TIME
We're into injury time now. Can Liverpool grab something before the break?
29'
HALF HOUR
With almost half an hour gone, its Liverpool who have looked the more likely to break the deadlock so far.
25'
MANE
Sadio Mane has another go, drilling a fierce effort goalwards and drawing a good save from Courtois. Liverpool are growing into the game more and more now.
21'
SCOOP
A cross comes in towards Mane who scoops the ball well over the Chelsea bar.
17'
ALONSO
Marcos Alonso drills an effort in now, from all of 25 yards. His shot is well struck, but Karius deals with it easily.
15'
BREAK
Olivier Giroud has a low shot blocked on the edge of the Liverpool box. The away side break at pace in customary fashion but it comes to nothing.
11'
MILNER
James Milner goes in hard on Eden Hazard. He is perhaps fortunate to escape a booking after what can best be described as an agricultural challenge.
3'
ALL TO PLAY FOR
If Chelsea win, they will move to three points behind Liverpool. If the away side come away victorious, they will guarantee their participation in the Champions League next season. There is all to play for today then.

UNDERWAY
We are underway at Stamford Bridge.
