57 mins: It's going to require a change of plan from Roy Hodgson to get Palace back into the game.

Second half: It's started to rain at Stamford Bridge, will that affect the teams at all in this second half?

Chelsea restart the game and get the ball into the box, there's an appeal for handball against Kelly but Mike Dean isn't interested.

Crystal Palace have not had a single shot on target but they have been resolute in defence. Gary Cahill in particular is having a great game. A last minute block just before half time have kept his team level at the break.

HALF TIME

Chelsea 0 - 0 Crystal Palace

45+4 mins: It's been a frustrating half for Chelsea who have seen more of the ball but haven't created many clear chances on goal. They've won a lot of free kicks but haven't utilised the set pieces.

Crystal Palace will be happy with their work. They've held firm despite not having the ball and have mostly kept Chelsea quiet. The only downside for them is that they don't look likely to score.
