  1. That's it from me. I need to crack on with the match report, ratings and post-match quotes.

  2. Stunning result. Chelsea were leading 2-0 with only four minutes of regular time remaining, but two goals in the closing stages have secured the unlikeliest of draws. Full time, it's Reading 2 Chelsea 2. A draw out of nothing for the Royals.

  3. The full-time whistle goes and Reading have come from 2-0 down to stun Chelsea and secure a remarkable 2-2 draw.

  4. 90+4

    Azpilicueta is now booked for diving.

  5. 90+4

    From the free-kick Reading launched the ball in the penalty area. Kebe flicks on the ball. Akpan nods on the ball for Le Fondre, who guides the ball home. Stunning stuff.

  6. 90+4

    GOAL! Reading are level! Le Fondre has scored!

  7. 90+3

    Reading finishing with a flourish, but Turnbull comes out and collects the ball. He's in no rush to re-start the game either.

  8. 90+2

    Change for Chelsea. Ba comes on. He replaces Torres.

  9. 90+1

    Super save from Federici to deny Ramires from distance. Could be more goals in this one.

  10. 90

    Five minutes of injury time are due to be played. Demba Ba looks like he is going to come on.

  11. 87

    Neat through-ball from sub Akpan and he finds who else by Le Fondre, who tucks home a left-footed finish. Can Reading perform another late miracle?

  12. 87

    GOAL! Reading have scored through Le Fondre.

  13. 86

    Chance. Benayoun finds Oscar, but his first-time effort is blocked by Federici, who came out of his goal quickly to snuff out the danger.

  14. 85

    Le Fondre curls an effort over. Reading coming back into this a little. They need a goal soon.

  15. 84

    Chelsea have Terry on the bench should Cahill be unable to continue.

  16. 82

    Cahill got a whack to the face there. Looks like he headed the back of McCleary's head.

  17. 78

    12 minutes to go and Reading have just had their first attempt at goal. Le Fondre headed an effort well wide. Disappointing night from the Royals so far.

  18. Just to clarify Le Fondre came on after Lampard scored. He replaced McAnuff.

  19. 76

    Change for Chelsea as well. My man of the match Mata has departed. Benayoun is on.

  20. 76

    Third and final change for Reading. Karacan has gone off and he's replaced by Akpan, who was signed from Crawley Town.
