    Time:90'
    • AFC Wimbledon
    • Chelsea
    • - And that's that, Chelsea's fantastic comeback secures a 2-3 victory!
    • 90' We're into injury-time.
    • 89' GOAAAAAL! AFC Wimbledon 2-3 Chelsea! Deja-vu! He's done it again! Terry heads in Baker's corner to surely win the game for Chelsea. A wonderful comeback!
    • 87' Three minutes to play and Chelsea are having all of the ball at the moment. Can the grab a winner?
    • 85' The changes at half-time have made the difference for Chelsea and now they're looking for the winner. Wimbledon's character and determination has made this a great warm-up for Mourinho's side.
    • 83' GOAAAAAAL! AFC Wimbledon 2-2 Chelsea! And there's the equaliser and what a neat finish it was as well. Baker's deep cross finds Salah who turns the ball into the bottom corner.
    • 81' Ivanovic finds himself behind the defence but backs out of the tackle with the Wimbledon goalkeeper. We'll let him off, it is a friendly...
    • 79' A great ball finds Wimbledon's Saint-Luce behind the Chelsea back line but the winger can only win a corner for his side, which comes to nothing.
    • 78' The game has become rather stretched which can only lead to opportunities. Hold onto your hats...
    • 76' Chelsea are really going for the equaliser now as Mourinho reverts to three at the back with Ivanovic moving to the forward line.
    • 74' GOAAAAAL! AFC Wimbledon 2-1 Chelsea! Terry grabs a goal back for the Premier League side, heading home from a Baker corner.
    • 71' AFC Wimbledon finally make their substitutes, resulting in a start/stop contest for the last few minutes.
    • 69' And that's his last action of the day as van Ginkel is replaced by Jordan Houghton while Mitchell Beeney comes on for Schwarzer.
    • 67' WHAT A CHANCE! With the goal at his mercy after finding himself unmarked from a free-kick, van Ginkel somehow heads at the 'keeper! How has he missed?
    • 65' A host of substitutes are preparing to come on for Wimbledon.
    • 63' Brown has been a real thorn in the side for Wimbledon since his half-time introduction and he very nearly created a goal for Chelsea there as he rounded a couple of defenders before laying the ball onto Baker on the edge of the area but the youngster could only hit the ball straight at the goalkeeper.
    • 61' Fantastic grit and determination shown from Fuller to win the ball from Baker in a dangerous area.
    • 58' Chelsea with all of the possession but AFC Wimbledon still lead 2-0.
    • 56'

    • 54' Chelsea have been much better in the second-half but Mourinho still isn't happy as he was shown on camera barking orders at his players.
    • 52' The Chelsea fans which were silenced in the first-half are suddenly back to life for the second period.
    • 50' SO CLOSE! Baker does well to find Brown at the back post but his header is wide of the goal. Brown is looking for his third goal of the week after grabbing a brace against Wycombe.
    • 49' The changes have made an instant improvement to Chelsea who go close again as Brown's pass just evades Ivanovic.
    • 48' Salah picks out Baker in front of goal with a delightful pass which Baker heads first time towards goal but Shea makes a good stop. He could have perhaps taken a touch. Best chance for Chelsea so far though.
    • 47' Nightingale has replaced goalscorer Bennett in the only change for Wimbledon.
    • 46' We're off for the second-half. Chelsea have made a host of changes at the break with Ivanovic and Terry amongst the substitutes. Dasilva, Romeu, Brown and Salanke are also on.
    • - We're edging closer to the start of the second-half. Can Chelsea fight back? Tweet me your thoughts.

    • - The referee has called the first-half to a halt with no added time. Chelsea trail by two goals and we will certainly see plenty of changes at the break from the Blues. So far so good for Wimbledon.
    • 43' So, a 2-0 lead for Wimbledon with just two minutes to half-time. Certainly not what anyone here was expecting.
    • 41' Great counter-attacking football from Chelsea as Salah breaks forward with pace before playing in Swift who takes slightly too long on the ball and his shot is well blocked by a defender. Wimbledon still lead 2-0.
    • 39' GOAAAAAAAL! AFC WIMBLEDON 2-0 CHELSEA! Tubbs won the penalty after drawing Zouma into a foul and the striker makes no mistake from the spot.
    • 38' PENALTY TO AFC WIMBLEDON!
    • 37' Wimbledon drew almost a third of their matches in League Two last season but an early goal today - after just 40 seconds - has give them a lead.
    • 35' Just 10 minutes remain in this first-half with AFC Wimbledon leading Chelsea by a goal to nil. Mourinho will almost certainly make a few changes at the break.
    • 33' Chelsea have looked most dangerous when Boga is in possession and he almost played through Salah there only for the midfielder to miscontrol the ball.
    • 32' Bamford tries to nip the ball from Shea who was preparing himself to kick the ball out of goal, much to the dissatisfaction of the goalkeeper. Samuel Eto'o has clearly had a word in his ear...
    • 30' Someone needs to tell Zouma it's a friendly. The defender launches a hard but superb tackle to win the ball cleanly.
    • 28' We're back up and running with Chelsea instantly winning the ball back and playing possession football.
    • 26' No, it's not Mexico vs Holland in 32 degrees heat but the teams have stopped for a water break...
    • 24' Swift has looked dangerous for Chelsea, picking up the ball in dangerous areas and running at defenders. But AFC Wimbledon are sitting with 10 players behind the ball and doing very well to contain the Blues.
    • 22' Boga shows his first real glimpse of class as he plays a lovely weighted pass to Bamford who loses it, he gets the ball back and plays in Salah with a delightful chip but Shea in AFC Wimbledon's goal is quick off his line to collect the ball.
    • 20' Chelsea have had plenty of possession so far but haven't created anything of note. Ake has just got forward from full-back but his cross was disappointing.
    • 19'
    • 17' Former Chelsea trainee Sammy Moore is enjoying himself out there in the colours of AFC Wimbledon. He has looked comfortable in centre midfield so far. At 26 years of age, you never know, it's not too late for Mourinho to come swooping...
    • 15' Schwarzer is called into action again as the powerful Akinfenwa wins the ball in the air to head towards goal.
    • 13' AFC Wimbledon come forward once more with Francomb running into space but despite being 30 yards from goal and team mates either side of him in decent positions, the midfielder opts to shoot and he gets his effort all wrong. Still 1-0.
    • 11' Schwarzer may have already conceded a goal but he's touched the ball for the first time in the match after a good save from Rigg, but the AFC man was flagged for offside.
    • 10' This match is now 10 minutes old and it's certainly Neil Ardley who will be the happier of the two managers. Chelsea haven't looked too special just yet...
    • 8' It's all Chelsea in the early stages with Swift in midfield trying desperately to make something happen. Wimbledon are holding firm at the moment.
    • 6' That goal has awakened Chelsea who are playing the ball around the pitch with some pace, waiting for a gap to open in the AFC defence.
    • 4'
    • 2' Well, not exactly the start Chelsea had in mind. My prediction of 0-2 is already off the mark!
    • 1' GOAAALLLL! Wimbledon 1-0 Chelsea! Incredible! The League Two side win a corner straight from kick-off and Bennett somehow found himself unmarked and he makes no mistake with a routine header!
    • 1' And we're off! AFC Wimbledon in blue and Chelsea in yellow.
    • 15.00 There has been a change to the Chelsea team-line up. Jeremie Boga starts in midfield rather than Lewis Baker.
    • 14.55 We're just five minutes away from kick-off io a pleasant day in London. If you want to get in touch, please do so via Twitter. I'm going for a 0-2 victory for Chelsea today, but what do you think?

    • 14.50 Chelsea's kids may have been rampant in their first pre-season friendly but it was quite the opposite for AFC Wimbledon who fell to a 3-0 defeat against Margate in their opening encounter of the summer. Manager Neil Ardley has added a number of new faces to his squad and many fancy them for promotion from League Two this season. They will be keen to bounce back after that abject performance with a much better display today.
    • 14.46 Nathan Ake looked a bit hit and miss on Wednesday - he set up the opening goal but some lapses in concentration caused some concern - but he has been given a starting position in Mourinho's side today and he will be hoping for a more solid performance. Marco van Ginkel is handed a place in the starting XI as he continues to recover following knee surgery. Patrick Bamford retains his place after getting his name on the scoresheet against Wycombe.
    • 14.45 Jose Mourinho opted to field a squad dominated by youngsters - helped by a few experienced players such as John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic - in Wednesday's friendly with Wycombe Wanderers, a match they won by five goals and the Special One has fielded an experimental side today in a match Chelsea will be expected to win comfortably.
    • 14.40 AFC WIMBLEDON: Shea, Fuller, Smith, Bulman, Frampton, Bennett, Francomb, Moore, Tubbs, Akinfenwa, Rigg. Substitutes: Worner, Pell, Azeez, Sainte-Luce, Kennedy, Arthur, Beere, Nightingale, Jacquart. /// CHELSEA: Schwarzer, Aina, Zouma, Christensen, Ake, Van Ginkel, Matic, Salah, Baker, Swift, Bamford. Substitutes: Beeney, Ivanovic, Chalobah, Terry, Dasilva, Romeu, Houghton, Boga, Brown, Solanke.
