    Time:90'
    • Werder Bremen
    • Chelsea
    • And that is the final whistle! Chelsea truly stuffed here!
    • 90' Very narrow from Chelsea here as they try and find a way through but Bremen have defended stubbornly and in numbers.
    • 89' GOAL! Kroos makes no mistake and smashes it low into the bottom corner. And that is the game.
    • 88' Penalty and a yellow card! Ake takes down Petersen in the penalty area but it looked like Ake had got the ball.
    • 87' Hazard attempts to make something happen by running down the left wing but he is crowded out by Bremen defenders who are able to clear.
    • 86' Again, Werder slowing it right down and just popping the ball about at the back.
    • 85' Matic bursts clear of midfield and then lays it wide to Hazard but his deep cross is headed clear bu Busch
    • 84' Husing steams down the line and lays in a great cross. Hajrovic comes steaming in but he can't get a touch as Mikel clears for a corner.
    • 83' Bremen just popping the ball about at the back and making Chelsea work hard.
    • 82' Ivanovic powers to the byline and lays the ball into the box but no Chelsea player is there to slot home. Lukimya gives away a corner.
    • 81' Lovely ball through to Drogba who could have been in on goal but his touch abandons him and the ball runs through to Wolf. Could have been an easy goal for Drogba there.
    • 80' Great pressure from Husing on the left and Mikel can only give away a throw in deep in Chelsea territory. It comes to nothing though as the throw goes in to Cech.
    • 79' Bremen really taking their time over everything now. Aycicek allows the ball to run out of play when it would have been easier to retain the ball.
    • 78' Aycicek tries to get away from Boga on the left wing but the young Chelsea man was too quick and was able to recover the ball.
    • 77' More subs as Terry comes off for Lewis Baker. Garcia, Junzovic and Caldirola all come off for Husing, Aycicek and Kobylanski.
    • 76' Bremen play a long ball up to Hajrovic but Chelsea are able to let it run to Cech.
    • 75' Drogba gets the ball on the edge of the area quite wide on the right. He takes a look up and sees no support so he blazes a shot at goal but it goes high and wide.
    • 74' Boga is dispossessed by Garcia who crosses but slips and so his cross just bobbles up to Cahill who can clear with ease.
    • 73' Poor touch from Drogba allows Lukimya to get in and tackle. Busch comes forward but is fouled by Ake on the right wing.
    • 72' Hazard wanders centrally and tries to play an eye of the needle pass to Drogba but it is cut out. Werder break but Hajrovic is flagged offside.
    • 71' Chelsea corner to the near post where Terry attacks it but Kroos clears the ball.
    • 70' Boga comes on for Azpilicueta.
    • 69' Corner to Werder as Ake is forced to clear behind. It comes in to the far post but Cech punches clear before ake releases Hazard. He sprints in on goal. And lays it to Fabregas on his right. From the edge of the area he tries to lob the goalkeeper but he hits the roof of the net.
    • 68' Kroos fouled by Hazard on the left. Werder go short and work it down the left to Hajrovic but he is tackled and Werder get a throw in.
    • 67' Cech again going long but Makiadi is there to stop Ivanovic winning the header.
    • 66' Cech goes long to Drogba but nothing comes of it as there is no-one running beyond him.
    • 65' Strong tackle from Terry as he goes right through Hajrovic in a 50-50. Was fair but very hard indeed. Looks like he just missed the ball.
    • 64' More Chelsea attack but again it comes to nothing as Drogba's pace doesn't allow him to latch on to a ball and he ends up fouling Makiadi.
    • 63' Fritz, di Santo, Galvez, Obraniak, Elia, Bartels all come off. Hajrovic, Petersen, Makiadi, Busch, Gebre Selassie, Kroos all come on for Werder.

    • 58' Drogba peels wide and tries to lay in Ivanovic but the pass was ambitious and the ball runs through to Wolf.
    • 57' Salah being brought off here and Hazard makes his first appearance of pre-season. Nathan Ake also comes on for Torres.
    • 56' Werder with their first real spell of possession. Think they're happy to just have it again!
    • 55' Penalty shout as Azpilicueta crosses. The ball does strike Fritz' arm but it is down by his side. No penalty.
    • 54' Mikel up to Ivanovic who plays it on to Salah. The ball is switched out to the left but Chelsea come inside again and are crowded out by Bremen.
    • 53' Lots of passes from Chelsea but going nowhere at the moment. Looking devoid of ideas.
