    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+6' The free-kick is cleared and the final whistle is blown to end this highly entertaining derby clash! QPR have beaten nine-man Chelsea courtesy of a goal scored when it was still 11 v 11!
    • 90+5' Chelsea win a free-kick and Cech comes up for it! All or nothing now for Chelsea...
    • 90+3' Malouda is penalised for fouling Faurlin. The Argentine midfield has ben a calming presence in midfield as this frantic derby has unfolded around him.
    • 90+2' This is ridiculous. No team with nine men should look as likely to score as Chelsea are, but an equaliser now would not be a huge surprise.
    • 90+1' Five minutes of added time to be played.
    • 90' Terry collides with Kenny after trying to charge down his clearnace. The pair square up to each other and have to be pulled apart. The referee shows them both the yellow card.
    • 88' Luiz is really looking to get sent off, isn't he? Now he is penalised for pushing and shoving on Helguson.
    • 87' Good patient build-up play from QPR, playing all across the final third before Chelsea manage to break the move down.
    • 86' This game is set for a thrilling climax. Play is going from end-to-end at the moment.
    • 84' Chelsea have really stepped it up a gear in the last 10 minutes. They probably deserve something from their second-half performance.
    • 83' DAVID LUIZ!! The Cheslea centre-back charges up the right wing, cuts inside and stabs a through ball into Anelka's path. The striker is shepherded away from goal, but his manages to chip the ball back in on the turn. Luiz is under it all the way and meets it with an acrobatic overhead kick that deflects off Lampard's boot and goes over the bar!
    • 82' QPR substitution: Jamie Mackie replaces Derry, who gets a big round of applause from the home crowd.
    • 80' GREAT CHANCE FOR CHELSEA!! An inviting cross in from Ivanovic and the unmarked Anelka heads right at Kenny! Surely Chelsea won't get a better opportunity than that?
    • 79' The free-kick is aimed at Terry, but Ferdinand gets there first with a solid diving header away from goal.
    • 78' Helguson tracks back a little too eagerly and knocks Anelka over. Chelsea send Luiz and Terry up for the free-kick...
    • 77' Barton whips in a lovely delivery to the far post and Helguson volleys over the bar! Great chance to settle QPR nerves and put this game beyond Chelsea! Will that miss prove costly?
    • 76' Cole is the latest player to see a flash of yellow for his dig at the ankles of Barton. The left-back lashed out after he claimed unsuccessfully that Barton handled the ball.
    • 75' No Premier League side has finished with a victory and only nine men remaining on the pitch since Manchester United defeated Aston Villa on 15 May 2004. The other two sides to achieve that feat were Leeds United (against Arsenal on 21 August 2001) and Manchester City (at, lo and behold, QPR on 15 October 1994).
    • 73' Chelsea substitution: Florent Malouda replaces Meireles.
    • 72' QPR go up the other end and Barton drills a solid effort just wide! Meireles is booked for his continued complaining to the referee.
    • 71' Now Luiz goes down in the box, and again no penalty given! Helguson had a handful of the defender's shirt and seemed to pick him up and dump him ont he ground!
    • 70' Luiz finally goes into the book for a cheeky little trip. Amazing that he hadn't already been given a yellow card.
    • 69' The longer this match goes on with just the one goal in it, the more doubt will start to creep into the minds of the QPR players. anelka is proving a handful on his own up front on the rare occasions he sees the ball.
    • 68' Helguson and Luiz both catch a breather after colliding as they both go for a high ball.
    • 67' Lamaprd goes down under pressure from Hall inside the area and wants a penalty, but the referee waves play on!
    • 66' QPR starting to find holes in the Chelsea back line now as Helguson gets down the right, only to hit his low cross too close to Cech.
    • 65' Barton pings a lovely 50-yard ball into the path of Wright-Phillips in the Chelsea box. The winger controls it with his thogh but is robbed of the ball before he can play it across goal.
    • 63' Smith makes a good run into the box to meet a through ball, but the substitute had just strayed offside. Luiz gives him a hefty shoulder barge for good measure.
    • 61' QPR substitution: Tommy Smith replaces Taarabt, who shuns the handshake of Helguson on his way off the pitch!
    • 60' Great tackle from Barton on Cole after the left-back got into the box and was ready to cross.
    • 59' Now Joey Barton goes into the book for a foul on Terry. The QPR captain has had a quietly efficient game today.
    • 58' Taarabt plays a one-two with Wright-Phillips and Ivanovic crashes into him. That's a booking for the big Serb.
    • 56' John Terry of all people tries to bend in a long-range effort, but it flies high and wide.
    • 54' An excellent ball slipped through the Chelsea defence by Taarabt is met by Young and the full-back sidefoots his effort wide of the far post!
    • 53' The referee has words with both Lampard and Derry, before showing the QPR midfielder a yellow card.
    • 52' All sorts going on here now as two QPR players bundle into each otehr both going for the same ball on the edge of the box, before Lamaprd squares up to Derry after the QPR man goes in with a meaty tackle.
    • 51' Alejandro Faurlin tries to get his free-kick over the wall but it rebounds off of it.
    • 50' QPr clear and this time they can break. Mikel brings down Taarabt on the edge of the box and gets a booking. The free-kick is in a very good position for someone to have a crack...
    • 50' Anelka is already proving to be highly influential, this time slipping in Lamaprd to have a shot which yields another corner.
    • 49' Anelka plays Ivanovic down the wing and Kenny has to punch the cross clear. Good start this from nine-man Chelsea.
    • 48' Hall rises highest to head away Lamaprd's corner. QPR will be looking to hit Chelsea on the break at pace from these situations, but on this occasion they can't launch the counter.
    • 47' Meireles gets down the right and puts in a cracking cross that Lampard sends wide with a header! Lampard is claiming a corner, and he gets it.
    • 46' QPR get the second half underway. Both managers are about to find out a lot about their players over the course of the next 45 minutes.
    • 45+2' The whistle blows for half-time, and it's been a nightmare for Chelsea. This will surely be the toughest team talk of Andre Villas-Boas's short tenure at the club.
    • 45+1' Chelsea substitution: Anelka replaces Mata. A shame to see two of the most exciting players on the pitch gone before half-time.
    • 45' Two added minutes are signalled by the fourthh official at the end of the half. Considering we've had a goal, two red cards and a substitution, should it not be a bit more?
    • 44' QPR break at pace again. The ball is pinged out to Helguson wide on the left, but the goalscorer's cross is blocked and Meireles is fouled as the home side try to recover the ball.
    • 42' This is becoming a case of damage limitation now for Chelsea. Nicolas Anelka is warming up on the touchline.
    • 41' NOW DROGBA IS SENT OFF!! The Chelsea striker is running through midfield with the ball when he loses it, and lunges high into Taarabt as he tries to win it back! Chris Foy has no hesitation in giving a second player their marching orders!
    • 39' Meireles is picked out by Mata and he has a clear sight of goal from 25 yards, only the drill his effort wide.
    • 38' Another good ball into the QPR box from Mata, but once more there is not a Chelsea player there to attack it.
    • 36' Chelsea substitution: Branislav Ivanovic replaces Sturridge.
    • 35' Mikel caught in possession and he's leapt upon by two QPR players! Chelsea really feeling the pressure now.
    • 34' Taarabt bends a lovely strike bound for the far corner from the free-kick, but Cech sees it all the way and is right behind it.
    • 33' BOSINGWA SENT OFF! Wright-Phillips outpaces the Portuguese as they both chase after Taarabt's through ball and he brings him down! Chelsea a goal down and now a man down!
    • 32' Wright-Phillips gets the flick-on and turns on the edge of the area, but his early shot is sliced into the crowd.
    • 31' Mata chases after a long ball but Luke Young helps shepherd it back to Kenny.
    • 30' Chelsea have not lost against a promoted team for more than 10 years. In April 2001, they were defeated 1-0 at Stamford Bridge by Charlton Athletic. Their track record against promoted teams since then is 54 victories, nine draws and zero defeats.
    • 29' Bosingwa gets in a decent ball across the edge of the six-yard box, but none of his team-mates take the gamble and Kenny can gather it up.
    • 28' Mata spies the run of Lampard and lifts a weighted ball over the defence for his team-mate, but it just runs through to Kenny before the England midfielder can reach it.
    • 26' Meireles slips over on the ball and Derry runs away with it. The whistle has already gone though for the Portuguese handballing as he fell, much to the annoyance of QPR. A promising break was on there.
    • 25' Wright-Phillips hounds Bosingwa, forcng the right-back to play back to the keeper. Plenty of determination in this QPR side today.
    • 23' Ferdinand blocks Jose Bosingwa's cross for another Chelsea corner. Lampard takes it this time. Luiz rans on to it at the near post and heads wide.
    • 22' Taarabt knocks a deft pass down the line for Helguson to latch on to, but the striker had strayed offside.
    • 21' Sturridge picks the ball up from deep and makes his way down the right flank. He tries to slip a through ball down the channel for Drogba, but it is intercepted.
    • 20' Drogba moves the ball across to Ashley Cole who has a pop at goal from range, but he drags his shot wide of the target.
    • 19' Drogba wants the ball earlier from Luiz when it's played forward, and the two exchange a few words. How will Anton Ferdinand and Fitz Hall handle Drogba's aerial threat?
    • 18' A QPR ball boy takes his time giving the ball to Juan Mata for a Chelsea corner! When the set piece finally comes in it goes out for a goal kick.
    • 16' Sturridge tracks back to help snuff out a promising QPR attack. He slips over on the well-watered surface, but does enough to stop the danger.
    • 15' The Chelsea corner is headed clear and Lampard fires his follow-up effort into the crowd. The home fans particularly enjoyed the fact it was Lampard who missed there.
    • 14' Sturridge is on hand to pounce on a losse ball. He goes from goal from 20 yards, but Hill blocks the shot at the expense of a corner.
    • 12' Chelsea have now gone eight Premier League games without keeping a clean sheet.
    • 11' There was an argument between Taarabt and Helguson as to who should take the penalty when it was awarded, and that row seemed to be continue after Helguson had scored! Bizarre scenes considering they have just gone a goal up against their local rivals.
    • 10' GOAL!! 1-0 QPR!! Helguson's penalty is poor, but it's good enough to beat Cech and QPR have the lead against the run of play!
    • 9' PENALTY!! A soft spot-kick conceded by David Luiz! The Brazilian barges into the back of Heidar Helguson, who was facing away from goal, and the Icelandic striker hits the deck! Referee Chris Foy points to the spot!
    • 8' The free-kick from deep is sent into the box, but it's an easy one for Petr Cech.
    • 7' Better from QPR here, as they manage to keep possession despite some good pressing play from chelsea. Adel Taarabt is brought down by John Obi Mikel as he spins past the midfielder out wide.
    • 6' QPR have barely had their foot on the ball so far. Their fans are making plenty of noise but it's the visitors bossing things on the pitch.
    • 5' Good defensive work from former Chelsea man Shaun Wright-Phillips, who tracks back to stop Raul Meireles's progress down the flank.
    • 4' A Chelsea free-kick is curled into the area for David Luiz, but the mop-haired defender can't reach it to test Paddy Kenny with a header.
    • 3' Frank Lampard has played more Premier League London derby matches (120) than any other player, and netted 26 goals in those games – only Thierry Henry (43), Teddy Sheringham (32) and Ian Wright (28) have more goals in these matches.
    • 2' Bright start from Chelsea as Daniel Sturridge plays a one-two around Clint Hill with Didier Drogba. He collects the return pass on the edge of the box and drills a strike wide.
    • 1' Chelsea kick off to get this West London derby underway!

    • 15:55 Neil Warnock has downplayed suggestions of a falling out between his two controversial midfield stars Joey Barton and Adel Taarabt. He said: "I don't know whether they fell out to be honest. I have only read what's been in the papers I've not heard anything about it around the training ground. This sort of thing happens at every club. I could tell you every club where there's a few who can light the touch paper and we are no different to them."
    • 15:50 The mercurial playmaker Adel Taarabt is restored to the QPR starting line-up having been benched in last week's 1-1 draw with Blackburn. Clint Hill has been recalled from his loan spell at Nottingham Forestand replaces Armand Traore at left-back. QPR team page
