FULL TIME: Chelsea 1 Leicester City 1. That's just about fair as both sides end the season on a positive note.

90+1'

Into the first of three added minutes here.

90'

CLOSE! Abraham flashes a shot just wide of Schmeichel’s far post.

89' 

Not likely to get too much stoppage time here. It’s been a match played in a great spirit and atmosphere. Will there be a final twist?

88' 

Abraham pulled down by Wasilewski on the edge of the box and that looks an obvius free kick but nothing given.

87' 

A draw seems a fair result today. Schmeichel has been in great form in the Leicester goal but that opening penalty looked harsh.

86'
85' 

Vardy skins Cahill again but the defender does a good job of coming back at him as the whistle goes for hand ball before he shoots into the side netting.

84' 

Leicester fans in fine voice. Not far from equalling their top-flight club record of 12 matches without defeat, set in 1963 and 1973.

83' 

That’s only Drinkwater’s second goal of the season. No smile from Ranieri but he will be satisfied, deep down.

82'

GOAL LEICESTER! It’s a cracking shot from Danny Drinkwater, thumping a shot into the far corner from outside the box. Great finish.

81'
80'

Leicester sub: Mahrez off to a standing ovation to be replaced by Albrighton.

79' 

Chelsea's only home league defeat in the last 24 meetings, spanning 50 years, was by 2-0 in September 2000 (W15, D8, L1). Muzzy Izzet and Stan Collymore scored in front of the watching Claudio Ranieri, who officially started work as Chelsea's head coach the following day.

77'

CLOSE! Schlupp tees it up to Mahrez, who tries to place it into the far corner but it’s straight at Courtois. Should have done better.

76'
75'

Here's an amazing stat. Cesc Fabregas has never finished on the losing team in a PL match in which he has scored (W31-D7). Wow!

74'

Only Diego Costa (18) has scored or assisted more goals for Chelsea in the PL this season than Cesc Fabregas.

73' 

Christian Fuchs walking a little gingerly but he seems alright now.

72'
71' 

Willian plays in another Chelsea corner but Schmeichel is there again to punch clear.

70' 

Leicester force another corner and it flashes right across the face of goal before Wasilewski can get any significant contact.

69' 

Claudio Ranieri's side have been awarded an unrivalled 13 penalties in the Premier League this season. It's their turn to concede this time.

68' 

Chelsea now really ramping it up. For the first time in a long season, Leicester are looking a little jaded. Who can blame them. They do force a corner.

67' 

On second viewing, that looked a cheap penalty for Craig Pawson to give. There was very minimal contact and Matic went down extremely easily.

66'

GOAL! Fabregas sends Schmeichel the wrong way and the keeper is finally beaten.

65'

PENALTY! Schlupp puts out a leg to stop Matic and Craig Pawson points to the spot.

64' 

Now Simpson has a go but his shot is well wide of Courtois’ far post.

63' 

Chelsea having a go. They force another corner. Short it goes before Willian plays it wide to Abraham but again, Schmeichel well positioned to field his cross.

62'
61'

Chelsea rocking out their new home kit today.

60'

Chelsea sub: Tomori on to replace Ivanovic.

59' 

Okazaki with a lovely backheeled flick as he steals ahead of Ivanovic but it’s straight at Courtois.

58'
-
57'
56' 

The Chelsea corner goes right across the face of goal but Cahill can’t get a decisive touch as Fuchs clears.

55'

Great challenge from Morgan to deny Abraham after Hazard played him in.

54' 

So Guus Hiddink ringing the changes to give the youngsters a chance. Absolutely the right thing to do. The formation remains the same.

53'

Chelsea subs: Traore off for Abraham and Pedro replaced by Loftus-Cheek.

52'

A lot of love for John Terry today.

51' 

Fuchs strolls into the box but his ball is misplaced, allowing Chelsea to counter. Pedro’s cross is claimed by Schmeichel.

50'

As it stands, the champions would equal their top-flight club record of 12 matches without defeat, set in 1963 and 1973.

49' 

Chelsea trying to play it out from the back and Pedro is fortunate to get away with a free kick as he is caught in possession.

48' 

Leicester force an early free kick. Drinkwater hits it a little too far for Morgan and it drifts out for a goal kick.

47' 

Two changes for Leicester as Schlupp and Okazaki comes on for the champions for King and Gray. A 4-4-2 becomes more of a 4-3-2-1.

46'

Back underway here at Stamford Bridge, the game deadlocked at 0-0. Chelsea have certainly had the better of things but have found Kasper Schmeichel in fine form.

-

HALF TIME: Chelsea 0 Leicester City 0

45' 

Just the one added minute as Chelsea finish this first half on top.

44'

SAVE! Again Schmeichel equal to it as he parries away Fabregas’ shot before he is beaten by Pedro. But the offside flag saves him and Leicester.

43'

Meanwhile, at the other end of the table...

42' 

Lovely ball in from Mahrez to Vardy at the far post but Azpilicueta stands his ground and deals with the threat very well.

41'

The Chelsea guard of honour for Claudio Ranieri.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri walks out to a guard of honour from the Chelsea staff before the game
40'

SAVE! And what a save from Schmeichel to thwart Willian. That was arrowing into the far corner.

39'

Who will break the deadlock? Jamie Vardy has scored the opening goal in 12 Premier League games this season, more than any other player. His total of 24 goals is one behind the division's top scorer, Harry Kane.

38' 

It’s been an entertaining match in the SW6 sun, if not explosive. A bit of an end of term party feel about this one.

-
37'
36' 

Corner to Chelsea. Fabregas swings it in, but the imposing Schmeichel is well positioned to pluck it out of the air.

35'
34' 

Now a good block from Cahill on Vardy as his shot deflects wide from a tight angle. Corner only.

33'

CLOSE! Schmeichel positioned really well to save from Fabregas. Almost casual as the ball bounces up from his feet and into his hands.

-
32'

DANGER MAN: Eden Hazard has scored four goals in his last four league games - after a run of 29 appearances without a goal in the competition.

31'

ATTEMPTS: Chelsea 6-5 Leicester

30' 

Mahrez loses the ball and Traore bares down on goal but scuffs his shot well wide of Schmeichel’s post.

29'
28'
27'

CHANCE! Schmeichel makes up for his lapse by saving well from Traore, who scuffs his shot somewhat.

26'

CHANCE! Schmeichel in all sorts as comes for the ball but gets nowhere near. Pedro squares to Baba Rahman but his shot is blocked as the defence re-groups well.

25' 

CHANCE! Gray in space down the right and he strikes a shot that almost squeezes under Courtois but the keeper watches it well.

24' 

Not an inspiring start from Cahill for England fans. Vardy turning him inside out already.

23'
22'

CHANCE! Vardy nips in ahead of Courtois but lofts his shot just wide. He’s caught by Courtois afterwards but no penalty.

21'

Traore flagged just offside but Schmeichal got the ball just before him in any case.

20'
19'

The champions could equal their top-flight club record of 12 matches without defeat, set in 1963 and 1973.

18' 

A reasonably quiet start to this one, a lot of mutual respect going on both on the pitch and in the stands with Chelsea fans applauding Leicester fans‘ chants.

17'

He's in the stands today...

16'
15' 

A neat move wide to Simpson but his cross drifts harmlessly out for a goal kick.

14' 

Drinkwater fouled from behind by Pedro and suddenly a good free kick position for Leicester...

13'
12'

Jamie Vardy runs on goal and turns Cahill before whistling a shot wide of Courtois.

11' 

Fabregas takes but it’s straight into the wall only half way up. Very poor attempt.

10' 

Foul be Kante near the edge of the box and this is a good chance for Fabregas...

9' 

Chelsea have made the better start here. Could have had a penalty and Pedro has gone very close. Certainly no favours today as the Blues build for next season.

8'

Chelsea have only won one of their last six Premier League games. They have gone three league matches without a victory for the first time under Guus Hiddink.

7'

CLOSE! Pedro turns Simpson and whistles a shot just wide of the far post.

6'

PENALTY SHOUT! Handball appeals as the right arm of Fuchs seems to catch Willian’s ball through to Hazard. Seen them given!

5'

History on Chelsea's side today but this isn't just any old Leicester side. Chelsea's only home league defeat in the last 24 meetings, spanning 50 years, was by 2-0 in September 2000 (W15, D8, L1). Muzzy Izzet and Stan Collymore scored in front of the watching Claudio Ranieri, who officially started work as Chelsea's head coach the following day.

4'
3' 

A familiar pattern developing with Leicester content to cede possession to Chelsea and hit on the break, as they have done successfully all season.

-

What a lovely gesture!

2' 

The champions in their fetching dark away strip today, Chelsea kicking off their final match of the season in their new home strip. Not much change to the last one, actually...

1'

KICK-OFF: The whistle blows to get acion underway her at Stamford Bridge. A lovely day in SW6 and a wonderful ovation for the Leicester team and their manager just prior to kick-off.

-
14.55 

FIVE MINUTES TO KICK-OFF: The players are in the tunnel and making their way out onto the pitch. Chelsea did former boss Claudio Ranieri a huge favour by coming back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Tottenham Hotspur and secure the title for Leicester City. There will be no such favours today.

-
-
14.50 

TEN MINUTES TO KICK-OFF: Leicester's 2-1 win in the reverse fixture ended a run of eight straight defeats against Chelsea in all competitions and proved to be Jose Mourinho's last game in charge of the Blues.

14.45

Only Aston Villa have won fewer home matches than Chelsea's tally of five this season. They have 49 points - the lowest final tally by a defending Premier League champion is 51, set by Leeds United in 1992-93 over 42 games.

-

14.40

Leicester's 2-1 win in the reverse fixture ended a run of eight straight defeats against Chelsea in all competitions and proved to be Jose Mourinho's last game in charge of the Blues.

14.35

Chelsea have only won one of their last six Premier League games. They have gone three league matches without a victory for the first time under Guus Hiddink.

14.30

Claudio Ranieri on his return to Stamford Bridge: "It's amazing. I have been there with Juventus in the Champions League but this time it is different because I am manager of Leicester, another English club. It is emotional. I hope my older fans are happy with me. Now I came back as a champion. It's a good story."

14.25

STAT: Claudio Ranieri can register his 100th Premier League win in this game (W99 D48 L36), thus becoming the 18th manager to hit that milestone in the competition.

14.20

Guus Hiddink (via BBC): "When they asked me (to take over on an interim basis), I didn't think much to say yes or no, because of my affection for the club. Of course, I would've loved to go to the FA Cup final, to go to at least one or two more rounds of the Champions League, but we could not fulfil that. In general I'm happy with this last half year. I did it with a lot of joy."

Danny Drinkwater plays after completing a ban but defender Robert Huth remains out after suspension. Jamie Vardy, who had cramp in his hamstrings last Saturday, plays in the finale to the season for the champions.

14.10 

So Thibaut Courtois returns for Chelsea after missing the 1-1 draw with Liverpool through illness and Branislav Ivanovic comes back after a groin problem. Apart from Costa, Loic Remy and Kurt Zouma are out and John Terry is banned.
