    • 90+4' That's it! Liverpool knock Chelsea out! And the pressure will continue to mount on Villas-Boas. Thanks for joining me tonight, be sure to follow me on Twitter: @liamhappe
    • 90+2' Torres is caught offside once more.
    • 90+1' Full-time in Wales: Cardiff have knocked Blackburn out. They're soon to be joined in the semis by Liverpool. Arsenal and Man City remain goalless.
    • 90' Four minutes extra to be played at the end of the game.
    • 89' Final substitution sees goalscorer Maxi brought off, with Skrtel on in a defensive switch to see out these last few minutes.
    • 87' Offside against Torres, who is the subject of "what's the score?" chants from the Liverpool fans.
    • 86' Carroll fouls Bertrand, defensive free-kick for the hosts.
    • 84' Alex fires off-target. Starting to look all over for Chelsea.
    • 83' Anelka gets Chelsea possession going again by taking the free-kick short.
    • 82' Foul by Enrique on Anelka just inside the Liverpool half.
    • 80' Liverpool attack comes to nothing and Bertrand will take the throw inside his own half.
    • 79' Dirk Kuyt is on for Bellamy in another Liverpool change. The Welsh striker's departure from the game triggers another 'one Gary Speed' chant from the away faithful.
    • 78' Mata swings in a corner for Chelsea, but it's too high for Alex.
    • 77' Maxi's opening goal was his tenth goal in nine starts for Liverpool.
    • 76' Turnbull spills a Henderson cross but nobody is around to capitalise, allowing the keeper to reclaim the ball.
    • 75' Low cross by Bertand and Carragher is forced to concede a corner. Lampard whips it in, Torres! Again Reina saves!
    • 73' Anelka surges forward and Reina is forced to leave his area to make a challenge with his feet! He does well but the striker still has a chance... blocked by Carragher!
    • 72' Mata is caught offside.
    • 71' Good move forward by Bertrand on the flank and here comes the cross... Torres! Header saved! Encouraging from Chelsea who otherwise have been quite insipid.
    • 70' Lucas is struggling again, he's going to come off much in the way of McEachran. Stretcher-assisted, too. Charlie Adam replaces him.
    • 69' Mata and Ramires are at the forefront of a Chelsea attack but are unable to turn and get a good sight of goal, and the attack peeters out.
    • 68' Lucas is back on the pitch, and his first act is to foul Lampard.
    • 67' Lucas is down for treatment after a foul by Mata. Another pause in play coming up.
    • 66' Ramires is the next Chelsea player to go into the book.
    • 64' The subs come just before we kick back off. Too little too late? Either way, Malouda and Lukaku make way for Mata and Anelka.
    • 63' Great delivery by Bellamy and KELLY MAKES IT TWO! First ever goal for Liverpool!
    • 62' Chelsea will make a double change after a free-kick to Liverpool.
    • 61' Lukaku fouls Enrique to end a spell of pressure and Reina will take the free-kick.
    • 60' Bellamy's caught offside.
    • 59' A rare case of width in attack during this game and it creates the first goal. Who knew?
    • 58' Bellamy is fed by Henderson and picks out MAXI! Liverpool take the lead!
    • 56' Luiz with a great challenge to cut out Maxi and Bellamy's double threat. The game is finally starting to open up.
    • 55' Lampard stands over this free-kick, which is about 25 yards from goal. Great ball in and it's off the bar! Luiz with a diving header on the rebound! Hits a red shirt on the line and goes out for a corner!
    • 53' Coates is booked for bringing his arm across Torres to halt the striker.
    • 52' Bellamy blazes one over the bar.
    • 51' Enrique plays his way out of Chelsea pressure following good work by Lukaku, and the visitors break only for Bellamy's ball in search of Carroll to disappoint.
    • 50' More congestion in the middle and Liverpool come out of it with the ball and into space to attack. Carroll feeds Maxi but the winger's cutback attempt is more of a clearance than anything.
    • 49' Cardiff have doubled their advantage over struggling Blackburn. That's the only of the three QFs tonight with goals so far.
    • 48' Liverpool attack but Carroll is offside. Torres lucky not to be booked for a foul on Bellamy from which the away side played on.
    • 47' News reaches me that Bertrand's yellow was wrongly awarded to him by Dowd as the foul was committed by Lukaku. The referee really isn't having a career-best performance thus far...
    • 46' Chelsea get the second half underway.
    • 45+4' And Mr. Dowd draws a tepid first half to a close. The only real highlights the missed pen by Carroll and a few possible shouts for other spot kicks. Follow me on Twitter: @liamhappe
    • 45+3' Luiz sells a back pass to Turnbull short and Carroll looks to take advantage! Does Luiz block him off there? I think Carroll oversold that in an effort to get Luiz in trouble, but nonetheless the defender is already on a yellow and he's skating on thin ice.
    • 45+2' LUKAKU! Decent ball in headed wide by the Belgian. Goal kick.
    • 45+1' Three minutes of time added on at the end of the half.
    • 45' Torres has done almost nothing so far. Most of the blame has to be given to the lack of service.
    • 44' Bertrand sees yellow for a foul on Henderson.
    • 43' Good one-two between Bertrand and Lukaku, but the left-back tries to dummy the return to Lampard who had no idea his team-mate was going to do that.
    • 42' And here comes Ramires on for McEachran. This is the Brazillian's first appearance in the competition this season.
    • 41' Turnbull saves comfortably from Enrique.
    • 40' McEachran looks ready to come off. He's had two spells of treatment and is giving the ball away left, right and centre.
    • 39' Only one goal in the cup so far this evening: Cardiff lead Blackburn 1-0, with Miller getting the goal. Arsenal v Man City remains goalless.
    • 38' Romeu fouls Kelly out on the right.
    • 37' Romeo overhits a pass to McEachran. His distribution has been poor thus far tonight.
    • 36' Lukaku does well, getting the better of Enrique before Coates makes the challenge and Enrique prevents a corner.
    • 35' The middle has been where the lion's share of this game has been played, by the way. Not a lot of width.
    • 34' Spearing fouls Romeu inside the centre-circle.
    • 32' Malouda is booked for a foul.
    • 30' Malouda with the next corner from the other side, and this time Carroll clears it completely.
    • 29' Chelsea win their first corner, and from it, a second in succession when Carroll mis-clears Lampard's in-swinger.
    • 28' That was a poor penalty, by the way - almost straight at Turnbull who nonetheless did well to beat it away from a potential rebound.
    • 26' Both Chelsea centre-backs on a booking with over an hour to play.
    • 25' Lampard fires one over the bar. Goal kick Liverpool.
    • 23' Chelsea spring forward and have a two-on-one advantage, but Lukaku hesitates and Coates saves the day.
    • 22' Carroll steps up to take it... and Turnbull saves!
    • 20' Another Enrique cross in to Carroll, and the Liverpool players react furiously! They claim a handball! Nothing is given... but the referee consults his assistant and changes his mind! Alex is booked for the handball!
    • 19' Pause in play now as McEachran receives treatment.
    • 17' Carroll triggers the flag.
    • 16' Foul by Bosignwa on Maxi. Free-kick comes to nothing.
    • 15' McEachran's shot is closed down by Carragher.
    • 13' Malouda is the next man to go down in the box after receiving a short pass from Lukaku, but it was a soft one and play continues.
    • 12' Henderson with the corner, it's a low one and picks out Carroll, who misses the target despite claims it took a deflection.
    • 11' Liverpool win the game's first corner.
    • 10' Lukaku is caught offside.
    • 9' Bertrand loses the ball but Maxi's cross is wayward.
    • 8' Bosingwa breaks and whips in a cross of his own, but Coates with the clearance.
    • 7' Cross in from Enrique... and it looks like Carroll is shoved in the back preventing him from connecting! Again, no penalty!
    • 5' Alex is fouled by Bellamy for a defensive free-kick.
    • 4' That looked like a stonewall penalty to me.
    • 3' David Luiz embarks on a good run down from central defence and is brought down inside the box by Coates! But no he's booked for a dive!
    • 2' Chelsea start with steady possession in the early going.
    • 1' And we're off.
    • 19:45 Before we kick off at the Bridge, the two sides observe a minute of applause in respect for the late Wales manager Gary Speed.
    • 19:40 “Another Chelsea defeat for sure” - From Bismark, on Tue 29 Nov 5:40PM
    • 19:35 Match odds: Chelsea 4/5, Liverpool 7/2, Draw 5/2. The referee is Phillip Dowd.
    • 19:30 Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish: "To ask any team or any players to play two games of high intensity in 48 hours is a bit of a joke. I don't know why the PFA (Professional Footballers' Association) don't come in and say something about it - it's their players. For me it's difficult to understand why they don't come out and say something."
    • 19:25 Chelsea assistant manager Roberto Di Matteo: "From our first game in the competition, you could see we set out to win it. It's a way of winning a cup and can also give a positive momentum if you win a trophy in that part of the season. The success under Luca [Vialli] gave the team real belief and momentum, it was a real positive effect to go on and win the Cup Winners' Cup, and finish the season well."
