  • Middlesbrough players have quite clearly been instructed not to give Hazard any room to breathe. He's smothered by Boro players as he picks up the ball in midfield, with Clayton eventually conceding a free-kick and picking up a yellow card for an ill-timed sliding challenge.

  • CHELSEA BREAK THROUGH! And it just had to be Costa, didn't it! It's a sloppy one, as Boro don't accordingly deal with a corner, the ball taking a deflection and looping in the air off the back of Chambers. It drops at the near post and it's Costa who is most determined to get on the end of it, forcing a first-time effort through Valdes!

  • Ramirez has hardly been involved this afternoon, but he does well here to win a free-kick, which sees Azpilicueta into the book.

  • A positive switch here from Karanka who brings on Stewart Downing, with Fabio replaced. He will likely play at left-back, but offers more creativity going forward, and another threat from set-pieces.

  • Kante doesn't like this decision, but he doesn't have much of a case as he wraps his arms around Ramirez to drag him down in midfield, and goes into the book as a result.
