    Barkley's first contribution is to try an audacious backheel.

    It goes wrong and he's met with a barrage of groans from the terraces. Chelsea really haven't been on it at all this second half.

    De Guzman steps up, but curls straight into the wall.

    Ross Barkley is about to come on for the home side – we've five minutes to find a winner, or this Europa League semi-final is heading to extra-time.

    It's Ruben Loftus-Cheek who is coming off and there's BOOS from the home fans. Hmm.

    Azpilicueta a very lucky boy. Awful, studs up challenge and he's fortunate that the ref whips out a quick yellow. We've seen reds for similar this season.

    Moments later and he's fouling right on the edge of the box – no second yellow but this is a dangerous area for the visitors…

    Shocking pass from Kovacic again and Frankfurt are on the break, but da Costa can't get his cross past Loftus-Cheek.

    Both teams have been so sloppy in possession all night, it's been the complete opposite to the matches on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Who fancies winning it? Into the last ten minutes.

    SO CLOSE!!

    Poor keeping from Trapp as Zappacosta slams in a shot from an angle, almost deceiving the Frankfurt stopper.

    He just about scrambles it away, with Giroud ready to pounce. For the first time in the half, Chelsea starting to get properly on top and apply some pressure.
