Match Commentary

100' It's all over and what an extraordinary end. Chelsea lose two goalkeepers to serious concussion knocks but hang on for a gritty three points. The game had it all with two sendings-off, a fluke goal, John Terry putting on the keeper's gloves and scuffles on the benches thrown in for good measure. But it's Chelsea who join Manchester United at the top of the Premiership.
100' FULL TIME: READING 0-1 CHELSEA
100' We're back underway and Reading push everyone forward. It's all kicking off on the bench now and predictably Jose Mourinho is at the centre of it all. Words and pushes are exchanged as the game ends on a sour note.
