Match Commentary

- Have a good Sunday evening...
- Chelsea win in fine-style by the end, but all the attention will be on that goal and the referee's decision to award the goal to Juan Mata.
90' FULL TIME Tottenham 1-5 Chelsea
90' Final minute of added-time...
90' GOAL Tottenham 1-5 Chelsea Malouda makes it five!!! Lovely pass from Juan Mata and Malouda turns it home.
90' Sandro on for Parker
90' Mikel who kicked-out (gently) at the Spurs man
90' Parker
90' Hand-bags between Scott Parker and Mikel after the Englishman's late tackle.
90' Adebayor for a careless lunge on Gary Cahill
90' The Tottenham fans havegone. Half-empty at that end.
89' Poor from Malouda. Having dispossessed Gallas and created a 2-on-1, he tries to be clever and chip the ball to Torres. But, his pass is overhit.
88' They play it short and choose to run down the clock. But, here come Tottenham. What can they do?
87' Another free-kick to Chelsea. From wide this time. Delightful play by Fernando Torres.
85' Chelsea playing keep-ball in midfield...
84' Torres replaces Didier Drogba who appears to have cramp.
83' Tottenham look to find a response. Defoe with a tame left-footed shot at goal.
82' Questions must be asked about Carlo Cudicini's positioning there. He should have had that post covered.
81' GOAL Tottenham 1-4 Chelsea Lampard thunder-bolt!!! The Chelsea man beats Cudicini with a glorious free-kick strike from 30 yards.
80' Gallas booked for a foul in midfield.
80' Tottenham want a penalty for a 'hand-ball' against Gary Cahill. Would have been very harsh, seemed to hit his shoulder.
78' Lovely pass and lovely finish. Excellent goal that may put the tie to bed.
77' GOAL Tottenham 1-3 Chelsea Ramires does brilliantly!!! Mata chips a beautiful through-ball to Ramires who dabs the ball over the keeper.
76' Good defending by Gary Cahill to deal with Gareth Bale with Bosingwa nowhere to be seen
76' Important diving-header clearance from Gallas.
75' Unlucky Drogba once more. Spins in behind King from a long-ball and almost beats Cudicini to the ball. Corner.
74' You can follow me on Twitter - @Chris_Elastico
73' Didier Drogba clears the third corner, landin awkwardly. Really putting in a shift for his side the Ivorian.
72' First attempt at a corner cleared by Drogba. The second almost flies in, but corner once more.
71' Bale rinses Bosingwa down the left and wins a corner as Gary Cahill turns the ball behind.
70' Brilliant defending this time from Gallas. First cutting out Ramires' cross, then diving in bravely to block Kalou's shot.
69' From the corner, Drogba knocks the ball down to Gary Cahill who fires over left-footed.
68' Big chance! A poor Gallas clearance falls to Kalou who looks to play in Drogba. King does well to block the Ivorian's shot.
67' Lampard fires in a pass to Drogba once more, but the Ivorian can't control it. Expecting a bit much of his forward there.
66' Tottenham block Juan Mata's shot on the line but the goal is given
65' Good defending from Assou-Ekotto now at the other end to deny Didier Drogba a chance.
64' Lovely play from Adebayor. The Togo forward turns Ashley Cole and fires at goal, but John Terry is there to block.
62' Initial news is that it may be a hamstring tear for David Luiz.
61' Good header from Terry, Assou-Ekotto is there to clear the danger though.
60' Ambitious effort from Drogba, deflected for a corner.
59' Gary Cahill replaces David Luiz who leaves the pitch on a stretcher. Looks like he is out of the Barcelona clash.
57' Spurs are back in the game, but they should be level. There will be big complaints if the score ends like this.
57' David Luiz, who was left for dead by Adebayor is now down and looks in big trouble.
56' GOAL Tottenham 1-2 Chelsea Bale halfs the deficit!!! Parker slips through Adebayor who is clattered by Cech. Bale is there to turn the ball in.
55' Brief appeals for a penalty as Modric tumbles under David Luiz's tackle. The Brazilian took the ball though.
54' The attack is wasted by Salomon Kalou though
53' Tottenham look to attack, but David Luiz deals with the danger and Chelsea pile forward.
52' Ramires cuts in from the Chelsea right, looking to pick out Drogba. Gallas clears.
51' Huge Tottenham protests to no avail. They must do their talking on the pitch though.
50' That is absurd decision making. There is no way he could be certain that had crossed the line, because it didn't!
49' GOAL Tottenham 0-2 Chelsea Controversy at Wembley!!! Juan Mata is awarded the goal, but the ball did not cross the line. Also a valid argument for a foul by John Terry. Ridiculous refereeing.
48' Fine Save! Cudicini gets down low to his left to save from Juan Mata, after good work from Drogba.
47' This time it is Lampard who launches a ball for Drogba to chase. King deals with the danger.
46' Danger straight-away for Spurs as they give the ball to Ramires in acres of space. Kyle Walker wins the header though, with two forwards waiting.
46' SECOND HALF is underway...
- Teams are back out for the second-period. Drogba is all smiles.
- Tottenham need to clear their minds then at the break. They had been the better side for a large chunk of the half. Things to build-on over the next 30 minutes.
- Little warning shot to Barcelona also. Chelsea are not washed-up yet. The Catalans still very much favourites for that tie though.
- Didier Drogba celebrates after putting Chelsea into the lead with a fine strike
- Poor William Gallas though - very little he could do.
- Tottenham in fact had started to get on-top in the game. Lennon and Van der Vaart threatening. That is what having a top striker on your side does I guess!
- It had been a dull, cagey encounter. But, that goal separates the teams at the break. Superb strike.
45' HALF TIME Tottenham 0-1 Chelsea
45' Just over the head of Drogba in the centre. One minute of added-time signalled.
45' Corner to Chelsea. Ramires' cross flies off Ledley King
44' That was emphatic from Drogba and all of his own making. Well worthy of the occasion.
43' GOAL Tottenham 0-1 Chelsea Drogba brilliance!!! Amazing stuff from the centre-forward, holding off Gallas, spinning and spanking the ball home left-footed.
41' Chelsea rocking there for a moment or two, but they have a breather now as Parker fouls Drogba.
40' Off the post! I say that and then they strike the post! Van der Vaart swings in a cross from deep, Adebayor leaves it and the Dutchman's cross hits the far post.
39' Neither side clearly on top here. Been a 'typical' semi-final occasion.
38' At the other end, the ball looked like it would break for Kalou, but runs for a Chelsea corner. Nothing comes of it though.
37' That was a glorious chance, but Terry had got himself on the line to block.
36' What a save! John Terry does brilliantly to clear Van der Vaart's header off the line after good work from Aaron Lennon
35' Brilliant from Lennon to evade David Luiz who initially pulled him back. Scuffs his shot across though.
34' Adebayor very close to playing in Van der Vaart for Spurs. John Terry is there to intercept
33' Lovely ball from Ramires, using his left-foot from the right flank. No-one in the middle has gambled though.
32' Drogba rises high in the centre to head Kalou's cross towards goal, but Ledley King does brilliantly to deflect the ball behind.
31' Now Bale loops in a cross from the left and Terry can only half-clear. Kalou is there to win the ball from Aaron Lennon
30' Bosingwa chips in a cross from the right to Drogba, but the Ivorian is offside.
29' Tottenham having a strong ten minute spell after Chelsea had started the better of the two.
28' More brave defending from Chelsea and this time it is John Obi Mikel that blocks Aaron Lennon's shot.
27' Big chance! Kalou robs Kyle Walker and the Ivorian does brilliantly to pick-out a ball to Juan Mata, but the Spaniard can't control the pass with the goal gaping.
26' Ledley King looks to have got on the end of the corner, but Salomon Kalou does brilliantly to clear.
25' Lennon then cuts in from the left and attempts to do the same as his Dutch colleague, deflected for a corner.
25' Van der Vaart lines up a curled shot into the far corner, Lampard is there to block.
24' Adebayor now looks to release Lennon into a foot-race with John Terry. His pass though is hit straight to the Chelsea man.
23' Not much it turns out, but Tottenham fail to capitalise on the defender being out of position. Poor from Spurs so far.
22' Luiz going for a stroll forward now. What can he do?
21' Interesting start then to this FA Cup tie. No major chances thus far.
21' You can follow me on Twitter - @chris_elastico
20' The corner though is abysmally over-hit to the far side.
19' Corner to Tottenham. By luck more than judgement, Scott Parker creates havoc in the area, but Ashley Cole gets across to clear.
18' Bale races straight past Bosingwa on the left. David Luiz though is there to see the ball out for a goal-kick.
17' Assou Ekotto does well in defence to win a throw-in off Ramires in the corner.
16' Drogba trips Lennon who had burst forward on the counter.
16' Drogba looks to turn and fire away a shot at the edge of the area. Well defended by Luka Modric.
15' Van der Vaart is the latest to try his luck from range. Well over the bar though.
14' As I say that, Ashley Cole puts a good ball across the face and only Ledley King prevents Drogba having a fairly simple chance.
14' Chelsea having the majority of the ball so far, not doing to much though
13' Big chance for Drogba to get a shot away in the left-channel, but the Ivorian powerhouse miscues his attempted left-foot shot.
12' Bale crosses from the left having beaten Bosingwa. It is too deep, but reaches Lennon who cannot capitalise.
11' Van der Vaart is enjoying this occasion. A couple of delightful turns in the area already.
10' Well over the bar from 35 yards from the Ivorian.
9' Parker clatters Ramires in midfield. Drogba to take a free-kick.
8' Terry once more showing no ill-effects from his two cracked ribs rises high to head the ball forward. Goes through to Cudicini.
7' Terry charges forward from defence now. Looking to pick out someone in the middle, his ball is good but Drogba dummies the ball with no-one behind.
6' Lampard has an attempt as Drogba crosses from the right. The header is well wide in the end.
6' Sloppy from David Luiz. The centre-back passes into touch whilst looking for Bosingwa.
5' Modric breaks from midfield and looks to slip-in Adebayor. But, his pass is unusually overhit.
4' Slow start to the game. Chelsea in particular looking to take their time over possession.
3' Beautiful passing from Spurs, until the ball came to Assou-Ekotto who tamely gave the ball away.
2' Gallas looks to pick out Adebayor with a long-ball over the top, but John Terry is there to knock the ball clear.
1' Spurs startinh with a long-spell of possession in midfield. Everyone getting a touch.
