  1. 90+3

    The referee ends Aston Villa's misery by blowing the final whistle. Sensational stuff. Chelsea simply brilliant, a harsh lesson for Villa's youngsters. It ends 8-0, thanks for joining us.

  2. 90+1

    RAMIRES! Ramires sidefoots one into the top corner to the chagrin of 7-0 backers. 8-0 (Eight-nil).

  3. 90+1

    Ireland floats one in but Chelsea clear and break.

    Bennett is fouled by Luiz just outside the centre circle.

  5. 89

    Guzan saves Piazon's penalty to the delight of 7-0 backers.

  6. 89

    Piazon goes down under a challenge from Clark.

  7. 87

    Even now Villa are committed to trying to make it 7-1. If nothing else, the youngsters attitude should be commended.

  8. 86

    Oscar pounces on a defensive mix-up but his shot only finds the side netting.

  9. 85

    The next five minutes can't go fast enough for Villa. But you fancy Chelsea might have another one in them yet.

  10. 84

    GOAL! Hazard twists and turns and smashes an emphatic finish past Guzan in the Villa goal.

  11. 83

    The game was over as a contest a long time ago but it feels more like a training session than ever now.

  12. 82

    Lowton robs Oscar in the middle of the park just as Chelsea were beginning to threaten once more.

  13. 80

    Chelsea pass the ball around without pressure and Villa's heads are finally beginning to drop.

    Chelsea penalty! Oscar goes down under the challenge from Herd.

  16. 77

    Benteke causes mild panic in the Chelsea box but Luiz hacks it clear.

    RAMIRES! The subs combine as Piazon picks an inch-perfect pass with his first touch and Ramires makes no mistake with a low finish through Guzan's legs into the centre of the goal.

  18. 74

    Lucas Piazon is on for Juan Mata.

  19. 72

    Oscar is blocked by Baker on the edge of the Villa box but the referee waves play on. It looked a foul but a 4-0 there was a collective shrug of the shoulders even in the Stamford Bridge stands.

  20. 71

    Bannan's deep cross is intended for Benteke who does win the header, but it falls into the grateful arms of Cech.
