    • 90'+3 The referee brings an end to the match. Nene's first half goal looked to be enough for PSG, until Piazon scored a late equaliser for Chelsea. It's finished 1-1 in New York, many thanks for your company.
    • 90'+3 Chalobah tries a cross from the right in towards Ramires, which is cut out by PSG.
    • 90'+2 Hoarau saves a long ball from going out of play and hooks a cross back into the Chelsea box which Ivanovic turns behind for a corner. It comes to nothing though.
    • 90'+1 Frenetic fininsh to this game.
    • 90' Marin gets forward again but he takes too long to offload the ball.
    • 89' Bisevac shoots from a tight angle which is parried away by Turnbull, the rebound falls to Pastore but he can't finish well and it's easy for the goalkeeper to gather.
    • 88' At the other end, Luyindula is played through by a neat through-ball and wins a corner for PSG.
    • 87' Piazon's tail is up, he's looking full of confidence now. The striker comes close to carving out another chance for himself.
    • 86' OOO, Malouda comes close to getting the winner for Chelsea, but his shot is well saved by Areola.
    • 85' Piazon and Ramires once again link up on the right but the former's ball is overhit.
    • 84' I really like the look of Marin, he seems incredibly creative. The German does well to get into space an attempts a long ball for Ramires, which is cut out by the defence.
    • 83' That was good play by the two Brazilians to create the leveller.
    • 82' GOAL! Chelsea equalise through Piazon! Ramires cuts a ball back from the right and Piazon slides in to tuck the ball into the net. 1-1.
    • 81' Chelsea look to attack down the left but Malouda goes too early and is caught offside.
    • 80' Maxwell floats a cross in which is cooly headed back to Turnbull by Cole.
    • 79' The game has one rather flat now, it has to be said.
    • 78' Good work from McEachran, showing full commitment to get the ball back after losing it.
    • 76' It's a little bit scrappy in the middle of the pitch, both sides are playing some stray passes.
    • 75' Over ambitious effort from Pastore, trying to catch Turnbull off his line from just inside the Chelsea half. It was too high anyway.
    • 74' Malouda's cross is too high for everyone and the ball is back with PSG.
    • 73' Marin shows some neat close control inside the PSG box and goes down, but no penalty given.
    • 72' Malouda gets a great cross in from the left after more good play from Marin, it's well cleared by PSG though.
    • 71' Chalobah has already had a busy summer. The promising youngster recently played in the Euro under-19 tournament for England, where they went out in the semi-finals to Greece.
    • 70' A dangerous cross is played for Hoarau - his header is a poor one though and it's way off target.
    • 69' Chelsea have been the better side in this second half but haven't create any opportunities at all so far.
    • 68' Cole gets forward on the left and wins a throw in high up the pitch for Chelsea.
    • 67' Chalobah and Piazon are also on for Chelsea. The players to depart are Cahill, Ferreira, Hazard, Lukaku, Cech, Mikel and Hutchinson.
    • 66' Terry. Cole and Malouda are all making their first appearances of pre-season for Chelsea.
    • 65' Douchez has been replaced in the PSG goal by Areola.
    • 64' Turnbull, Terry, Cole, Malouda, McEachran all on for Chelsea.
    • 63' Fancy some more substitutions? No, me neither. But here we go anyway....
    • 62' Marin plays in a ball to Ramires but he can't deliver a cross.
    • 61' Another yellow card handed out by the referee. This time it's for Verratti. In my opinion, some of these are slightly harsh.
    • 60' Mikel has picked up a yellow card for a slightly late tackle. You do wonder whether the referee knows this is a friendly though.
    • 59' Opportunity for PSG to swing in a corner from the left. It's played to the edge of the box for Hoarau, but his shot is blocked.
    • 58' The corner is played in and the ball bobbles around a little, eventually falling to Ivanovic. He can't dig the shot out from beneath his feet though and that's the chance gone.
    • 57' Good run by Hazard on the right, and the Belgian earns a corner for the Blues.
    • 56' Ok, details of these PSG changes: Bisevac, Lugano, Camara, Tiene, Verratti, Maxwell, Luyindula and Hoarau on for Jallet, Alex, Sakho, Armand, Lavezzi, Bodmer, Nene and Gameiro.
    • 55' Chelsea appeal for hand-ball on the edge of the PSG area which is waved away by the referee. Was a shade optimisic anyway.
    • 54' PSG, with all their changes at half time, are struggling to impose themselves on Chelsea in the same way they did in the first half.
    • 53' Lukaku is another to be seeing a lot more of the ball in this second half.
    • 52' Marin looks very impressive, he's already looking more likely to create something for Chelsea.
    • 51' Ramires gets free on the right and delivers a cross which certainly wasn't aimed at anyone in Blue. Goal kick to the French side.
    • 50' Ferreira attempts to attack down the left but he's halted by PSG. The Portuguese tries to get back to get the tackle in, but concedes a free-kick.
    • 49' Chelsea are passing the ball around much better in these opening stages. Marin in particular is looking bright.
    • 48' Chelsea substitutions at half-time: Ramires, Ivanovic, Marin, Essien for Lampard, Luiz, De Bruyne and Kakuta.
    • 47' You'll have to bear with me for the substitutions, details are sketchey! Chelsea have started this half better than they ended it though.
    • 46' We're underway for the second half in New York, details of substitutions to follow.
    • 45'+1 That's half-time. Paris Saint-Germain have the lead at the break, and they deserve it. Chelsea have been below-par, and will hope for better in the second period.
    • 45' The corner is wasted, as it goes straight to PSG.
    • 44' Chelsea have earned a corner after Jallet fails to deal with a long pass from Hutchinson.
    • 43' Nene tries to chip a pass into the Chelsea box, Cech reads it well though and gathers.
    • 42' The free-kick is nearer the half way line than the goal, but Lampard goes for glory anyway. Unsurprisingly, it doens't really test Douchez in the PSG goal.
    • 41' Sakho is shown a yellow card for a late challenge on Hazard.
    • 40' Long throw from Hutchinson eventually falls to Hazard, but the Belgian can't connect properly with his shot.
    • 39' Luiz has had enough of this and is taking matters ino his own hands. Not that it makes any difference mind, as his low cross fails to connect with a team-mate.
    • 37' Another loose through ball is attemped from Chelsea, but they just end up losing possession.
    • 36' PSG pressing very high up the pitch and limiting the time Chelsea have on the ball. Very hard for them to get into the final third.
    • 35' Lavezzi tries a neat back healed through ball - but it doesn't come off.
    • 34' Kakuta gets free on the right, cuts back and delivers an inswinging left footed cross which looks dangerous, but no-one gets on the end of it.
    • 33' Lukaku has barely seen the ball so far in this game.
    • 32' If Chelsea want to get back into this, they're going to have to stop sitting back and show some more invention. Lampard and Hazard are key to that.
    • 31' That goal had been coming for PSG, who have looked by far the more threatening team.
    • 30' GOAL! Pastore is played in and it's lovely skill from the Argentinian, but his shot hits the post. The rebound falls to Nene to open the scoring. PSG lead 1-0.
    • 29' Jallet plays a one-two with Bodmer, but the defender's shot on goal is high over the bar.
    • 28' Gameiro gets free on the right but takes the wrong option on the type of ball to play in. His low cross is easily cut out.
    • 27' Nene takes an outswinging corner, which is well defended by Lukaku.
    • 26' A cross comes in from the left from Armand which is sliced away by Cahill for a PSG corner.
    • 25' Decent play between Lampard and De Bruyne on the left. The Belgian gets to the by-line and his cross is hit with venom, but without accuracy. Douchez has the ball in his grasp.
    • 24' Despite the lack of chances, PSG have certainly looked the more likely to score.
    • 23' Ferreira looks keen to get forward a lot on his unfavoured left-back position, but it hasn't been successful so far.
    • 22' The game has slowed a little now, little oppotunities being carved out for either side.
    • 21' Hutchinson plays a deep cross into the PSG area which is met by Hazard, but he can't quite get divert the ball back across goal.
    • 20' Nene is played through on goal but play is pulled back for offside.
    • 19' Nene tries a curled effort from outside the Chelsea area which goes harmlessly wide.
    • 18' Good play from Kakuta - he shapes to shoot but instead feints and plays the ball to Hutchinson on the right. The defender's cross is a poor one though and it's cleared away.
    • 17' Kakuta and Hazard show some neat link up play, but the attack breaks down. Better from Chelsea though.
    • 16' Lampard finds himself on the edge of the PSG box but instead of taking a shot, he tries to find Lukaku but the ball is intercepted.
    • 15' Hazard tried a shot from a fair distance out. It's well hit, but not especially accurate. PSG goal-kick.
    • 13' Chelsea with a rare foray into the PSG half, the ball is won back by the French side though.
    • 12' The front 3 of Lavezzi, Gameiro and Pastore causing all kinds of problems. PSG win another corner which is eventually claimed by Cech.
    • 11' Nene twists and turns on the edge of the Chelsea area, he then goes down very easily to Kakuta's challenge - but the referee deems it a good one.
    • 10' Cahill needlessly pushes Chantome over and concedes a free kick which will be whipped in by Nene, but the chance is wasted.
    • 9' Lavezzi gets through on goal and Cech comes rushing out, but the Argentinian appears to give as the goalkeeper challenges for the ball. The referee certainly thinks it's a dive, and hands out a yellow card to the forward.
    • 8' Lampard tries to dummy the ball on the edge of the PSG area, but the ball is picked up by the defender.
    • 7' Gameiro lifts in a cross and the ball bobbles around a bit, before it's hoofed away by Hutchinson.
    • 6' And with that, Ferreira gets down the let and delivers a good cross which causes some confusion at first, before it's cleared.
    • 5' PSG certainly looking the brighter side early on. Lavezzi is seeing plenty of the ball.
    • 4' PSG play the ball over the top to Lavezzi, he's got time to shoot right in front of goal but tamely directs his shot at Cech. It's like he thought he was offside.
    • 3' Lovely play between Lavezzi and Pastore on the left, but Hutchinson mops up at right back.
    • 2' Paris Saint-Germain are having more of the ball in the opening stages of this match.
    • 1' We’re underway for the first half in New York.
    • 00:05 And with that, the teams are coming out. All holding red footballs.
    • 00:05 We're awaiting the arrival of the players on to the pitch in New York, there's a slight delay to kick off.
    • 00:01 Many of you thinking Chelsea will come out on top in this game. Luke goes for 3-1, Mark with 2-1 and Sarah 7-1 (optimistic).
    • 00:00 The Yankee Stadium has been transformed from a baseball pitch to a football one. It’s quite a spectacle. The old home of the Yankees played host to the New York Cosmos, which featured a Brazilian player called Pele – you may have heard of him.
    • 23:58 Both sides name strong starting line-ups. Chelsea captain John Terry has linked up with the squad, but will start from the bench. Hutchinson gets a chance to stake his claim for a starting place at right-back.
    • 23:56 You're showing some incredible commitment to your side if you're still awake for this game, that's if you're based in Europe of course. So get your opinions on the match to me via Twitter: @rich_newman
    • 23:55 Chelsea come up against their old manager, Carlo Ancelotti, who now manages PSG. Former defender Alex also features. There’s no Ibrahimovic in the squad for the French side, with the move coming slightly too soon for the new signing. Fellow new addition Lavezzi does get a game though.
