    Time:90'
    • Wycombe Wanderers
    • Chelsea
    • 90+1' The full-time whistle blows. Chelsea run out 5-0 winners. Thanks for joining us this evening.
    • 90 We'll have one added minute at the end of this match.
    • 89' Chelsea strolling to victory here. They have been in total control all evening, and after scoring just the one goal in the opening half they will be impressed with how many opportunities they have created in the final 45.
    • 87' GOAL! IT'S FIVE!! AND WHAT A GOAL. Brown nets once more. The 16-year-old former West Brom player pulls away on the edge of the penalty area, receiving the ball from Solanke to bend a gorgeous effort into the far corner. Ingram rooted.
    • 85' A big challenge from Ainsworth on Matic. The 41-year-old boss holds nothing back and leaves his opponent in a bit of pain.
    • 83' Despite playing against lowly League 2 opposition, Jose Mourinho will be impressed with his side's performance tonight. And although his side have shipped four goals, Gareth Ainsworth won't have too much to complain about. Wycombe have faced opposition that are on a different level, but they have done themselves proud.
    • 81' Solanke finds some space between the two central defenders and receives the ball. The striker shapes one way and then goes the other before shooting at goal from 25 yards. The youngster is off balance when shooting and sends the ball into the stands.
    • 79' The biggest cheer of the night erupts with 11 minutes left on the clock. Matt Bloomfield, whose testimonial it is this evening, is substituted. He has spent 11 years at the club and deservedly walks off to a standing ovation.
    • 77' Ainsworth now gets his first touch of the ball, holding the ball up midway through the Chelsea half. The home fans respond, but Matic is there to clear up, nicking the ball and turning defence into attack.
    • 75' A huge cheer erupts inside Adam's Park as manager Gareth Ainsworth throws himself on for the last quarter of an hour. This home fans would go nuts if their boss could get on the scoresheet.
    • 74' Schwarzer departs having kept a clean sheet for three-quarters of the match. He'll be pleased with his contribution.
    • 72' Hayes, who will make way shortly, has an effort on goal from all of 25 yards. The striker is hit well, but Schwarzer sees it early and is down to hold on at the first time of asking.
    • 71' The home side, despite making a host of changes, are looking tired now. A long spell of possession for the visitors has the Wycombe players chasing their shadows.
    • 70' McClure - who is a Chelsea fan - overlaps down the left for Wycome and crosses for his solitary teammate inside the penalty area. Captain Marvel, Terry, heads the ball clear.
    • 69' With just over 20 minutes to play, Chelsea are in complete control of this and will only hope for a clean sheet now. No mistakes.
    • 67' GOAL!! It's four. Boga's set-piece is whipped onto the penalty spot. Ingram races off his line to punch clear but gets nowhere near the ball, allowing for Ivanovic to head into an empty net.
    • 66' Brown draws in a clumsy challenge 30 yards from the Wycombe goal. Bogar will be hoping to send in another decent cross here.
    • 65' The home crowd inside Adam's park are still very vocal. Their team hasn't really been in this match, but they are enjoying having a Premier League outfit on the turf and are making the most of the occasion.
    • 64' GREAT CHANCE FOR CHELSEA!! Another set-piece is poorly defended which allows for Chelsea captain Terry to prod the ball back into play from the byline. Ivanovic is the closes to it but smashes the ball over the bar from six yards.
    • 62' Cowan-Hall looks to get on the end of Doherty's lobbed through ball and almost does so. Da Silva is at sixes and sevens, but Zouma helps out his defensive partner to clear the danger.
    • 60' Terry almost puts Schwarzer in trouble with a poor back pass. The keeper just about clears the ball, though it fall to Bloomfield on the half way line. The crowd urge their man to shoot, but he opts to keep the ball.
    • 59' Another great ball in from a set-piece by Boga. The second half substitute clips the ball over the top of the Wycombe defence and into the path of Brown. The goalscorer can't quite reach it, but Ingram is on hand to make a smart reaction stop.
    • 57' Wycombe are enjoying a decent spell of possession. They're passing the ball around their back four which will give them a bit of a breather.
    • 56' Ivanovic loses the ball deep inside his own half but recovers well to disposses Scowen on the edge of his box to clear the danger. Good recovery from Ivanovic.
    • 54' Terry now receiving a round of boos every time he touches the ball. The former England captain is used to being the pantomine villain so won't be too bothered about the hostility.
    • 52' GOAL!!! Chelsea score their third of the match. Boga's corner from the right is whipped into the near post where Terry is waiting to prod home. Poor defending, but a nice finish from JT.
    • 51' Great shot and great save. Boga, now playing in the hole behind Solanke, wriggles away from his man on the edge of the area to shoot on goal. Ingram is down well to palm the ball out for a corner.
    • 50' A perfect start for Brown, who looks totally at ease - at the ripe old age of 16. A great opening to this second half for the visiting side. Few chances in the first period, but Mourinho will be impressed with the first few minutes of this half.
    • 48' GOAL!!! Brown scores for Chelsea. A tremendous ball over the top into Da Silva allows the full-back to burst towards the byline. Da Silva pulls the ball back into the path of Brown who wallops the ball home from 10 yards. Simple.
    • 47' England youngster Izzy Brown will play the final 45 minutes of this match. Certainly one to look out for in the future.
    • 46' The second half is underway. A host of changes for Jose Mourinho's Chelsea at half time.
    • 45+1' The first half is brought to an end. Chelsea leading 1-0.
    • 45' Ake doesn't give up on what looks like a lost cause. The defender keeps the ball in but is then absolutely clattered by Lewis. A free-kick for Chelsea, and that is a really poor challenge from the Wycombe man.
    • 44' Cowan-Hall leads a Wycombe break. He moves down the right with Chelsea short at the back. Hayes rises above Chalobah but can't get his head on it. A decent end to this half for the home side.
    • 42' Ake and Swift link up well down the left. The former expects the return ball but it doesn't come. Swift instead looks to create something for himself, but is tackled. Not a great half for the young striker.
    • 41' Wycombe's second consecutive corner is whipped onto the edge of the six-yard box. This time Schwarzer does well to punch.
    • 40' Schwarzer comes to gather a corner, but the keeper isn't able to hang on. Goalscorer Bamford sends the ball out for another corner.
    • 39' Almost half-time in this friendly, which is doubling up as Matt Bloomfield's testimonial and the Wycombe man still hasn't scored. Have Chelsea read the script? Where's the blatant penalty?
    • 38' John Terry is seen warming up on the touchline. The Chelsea fans sing a chorus of "there's only one England captain." Awwwwwwwwww.
    • 37' Wonderful defensive cover from Romeu, who reads a Wycombe attack to head the ball back to Schwarzer from the centre circle.
    • 35' Great defending from Chalobah once again, who uses his pace and strength to shepherd a long ball out for a goal kick under pressure from Craig.
    • 34' A great deal of possession for Chelsea, but very little happening at either end of the pitch. Despite that, it's making for quite an entertaining game.
    • 33' Another ambitious effort from the hosts. This time it's Hayes who sees Schwarzer off his line and attempts to lob the Australian. Mishit once more and Chelsea have a goal kick.
    • 32' Chalobah looks to find Swift with a killer pass, but it's mishit and although the Chelsea striker busts a gut to meet the ball, Ingram is off his line to gather.
    • 31' The first shot of the night for Wycombe, who have struggled to get anywhere near Chelsea's goal. Wood is the man to have the pop at goal, but it's from 40 yards and the ball balloons into the packed stands.
    • 30' Piazon picks up a good position 30 yards from goal. He has options left and right which pulls the Wycombe defence apart, allowing Piazon to travel forward. The youngster looks to find the back of the net, but drags his shot wide of the mark.
    • 29' Wycombe nick the ball off the visitors and look to move forward, attacking in numbers. The home side put the Chelsea defence under pressure for the first time of the evening, but Chalobah stands up well, bides his time and then makes a tremendous interception.
    • 27' Piazon gathers the ball out wide on the left. The Wycombe box is full of bodies following a Chelsea corner, but the youngster dwells on the ball and is stripped of the ball and left in a heap.
    • 26' Swift really hasn't been able to get into this game so far. He's isolated up front on his own, despite Chelsea dominating possession.
    • 25' Typical. Kane really tried to continue, but Mourinho has pulled the youngster off as a precautionary measure. Zouma has been introduced on that right side of defence.
    • 23' Kane has made his way back onto the pitch. He looks determined to continue, but it's very doubtful that he will make it past halftime. Expect Zouma to make his way onto the pitch for the second 45.
    • 21' GOAL!! Bamford puts the hosts ahead with a lovely left-footed finish from 12 yards. Ake does particularly well on the left, keeping the ball in play - but only just - to cross for Bamford who finishes with aplomb.
    • 20' Kane looks to have pulled his groin, and he may have to come off here. A shame for the youngster.
    • 19' Van Ginkel is left in a heap, but Chelsea retain possession and the referee allows the game to flow. Not a particularly malicious challenge, just a rather heavy hit. Kurt Zouma is warming up on the touhcline.
    • 17' This is a really disciplined defensive performance from the home side. They're sat with two banks of four and are keeping the ball, and the Chelsea players in front of them. Gareth Ainsworth will be impressed with how his side have started this match.
    • 16' Smart keeping from Ingram, who reads Romeu's clever through ball and races off his line to punt the ball long just outside of his penalty area.
    • 15' Kane gets down the right now, overlapping and receives the ball. There's only Swift to aim for in the box but he opts to cross anyway. Unsurprisingly the ball is cleared.
    • 14' That was the first half-chance for Wycombe, and it came from a little bit of naivite. Ake dwelled on the ball and was just shoved off it. He'll think twice about doing that next time.
    • 12' Hayes and Ake are at it again, but this time the Wycombe man brushes his opponent off the ball and makes his way towards the Chelsea goal. Spotting the run of a teammate, he crosses, but Chalobah is on hand to divert the ball out for a corner.
    • 11' Ake is put under pressure by Hayes. The young Chelsea defender uses his strength to shepherd the ball out for a goal kick.
    • 10' The home side win a free-kick in a promising position on the left deep inside the Chelsea half. Rather than load the box, the hosts play it safe and play the ball back to the halfway line before eventually pumping the ball into the Chelsea box. Schwarzer if off his line in a flash to claim.
    • 8' Wycome, to their credit, are resolute at the back. They're organised and are keeping Chelsea at bay. No real chances as of yet.
    • 7' This really is like a training ground exercise for Chelsea at the minute. Keep-ball for the men in yellow.
    • 6' Swift pulls out wide briefly, beating his man to cross. Ake is up from the back and tries an outrageous overhead kick from 18 yards. He makes contact, but not it's poor.
    • 5' Wycombe claim possession for a brief period as a scramble breaks out on the edge of the Chelsea penalty area. Ake is the man to clear the danger and Swift carries the ball towards the opposition penalty area.
    • 4' Chalobah carries the ball forward from defence, travelling into the Wycombe half as the home side give Chelsea a little too much space.
    • 3' Chelsea finally concede possession, and it's Bloomfield that wins the ball - much to the joy of the crowd. Remember, this is the Wycombe man's testimonial tonight. 11 year's service at the club. Quite something in this day and age.
    • 2' As expected, Chelsea are retaining possession. They've not conceded possession in over 90 seconds and are moving the ball forward slowly, but with intent.
    • 1' The first half is under way. Chelsea kick off.
    • 19:40 It’s a youthful Chelsea side, but they have a few big-hitters on their bench including John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic and Nemanja Matic. Quick note: this game doubles up as a testomnial for Wycombe legend Matt Bloomfield. So expect him to score tonight...
