    RED CARD - PENALTY - GOAL! Chelsea 2-2 Swansea City: Gomis scores! Crazy scenes at Stamford Bridge. Courtois was a doubt before the game with a slight injury - but he's heading back to the changing rooms early after being shown a red card. The keeper came rushing off his line and brought down Gomis just inside the box. The Swansea striker dusted himself off to put it past Begovic. Oscar was the outfield player to make way for the sub keeper.

    FULL TIME:

    Chelsea 2-2 Swansea 
    8/8/2015 6:24:22 PM

     Hazard had very little to offer.

    Full time - Chelsea 2-2 Swansea: That's the whistle. After a scrappy final few minutes, Swansea will be more than happy with that result as they earn themselves a hard-earnt point. Chelsea will be only frustrated with that performance and looked lethargic at times, especially as the game reached its end. 

    A disappointing performance in the end from Chelsea but that shouldn't take away from what was a commendable display by Swansea
    8/8/2015 6:27:22 PM
    So that's it folks.

    It's been a great day of football and an exciting start to the season no thanks to Swansea and Leicester who certainly helped to spice things up.

    Thanks for staying tuned and make sure to catch our coverage of tomorrow's games when Arsenal, Liverpool and Southampton all look to get their seasons underway.
