Chelsea FC
The team have safely landed back in London. They have a day off today (Wednesday) and it's back to training on Thursday. #CFC
Jose Mourinho has his say on tonight's win in Lisbon: #CFC
That's all from Jose for now, more on later... #CFC
Mourinho says John Terry will go down in the history of the club. Our skipper made his 100th Champions League appearance tonight. #CFC
Mourinho says he brought Mikel on to try and close the door and ensure Sporting did not find a goal to level the scores. #CFC
Jose says Sporting showed tonight they are at ease with the level of the Champions League and will continue to be a tricky opponent. #CFC
Jose: 'I think the game was hard but correct. The ref controlled it so everything was okay.' #CFC
Jose: 'It's not a knockout where goals are fundamental, it's points, and these are three points.' #CFC
Jose Mourinho has arrived for his post-match media conference. #CFC
A fine away win in Europe nonetheless and the Chelsea players applaud the travelling Blues fans after a job well done. #CFC
Matic's first-half header the difference, with Sporting's keeper denying us more on a number of occasions. #CFC
Full-time: Sporting 0 Chelsea 1 #CFCLive
Salah through on goal but denied by another superb save. #CFCLive
Matic heads it away. The Serbian has been immense tonight. #CFCLive
Sporting have a corner, Mikel throwing himself in the way of a long-range effort. #CFCLive
There will be a minimum of four minutes of additional time. #CFCLive
Then it's Sporting's turn to go very close, Nani's curler just over. Three mins plus injury time remain. #CFCLive
Salah in his first involvement does well to win us a throw-in deep in Sporting territory. #CFCLive
A final Chelsea sub, Salah on for Hazard. Moments earlier Diego Costa was very close to getting on to a Matic pass in behind. #CFCLive
Double sub for Sporting: Capel and Montero on for Carrillo and Silva. #CFCLive
Into the final 10 minutes and this game is still finely balanced, the Blues still ahead by a goal to nil. #CFCLive
Filipe Luis the latest man booked, and from the ensuing free-kick Courtois and his defence just about clear their lines. #CFCLive
Cedric is the next man booked, for a bad tackle on Hazard as we retained possession nicely. #CFCLive
The corner is cleared and Hazard fouls as Sporting look to break. The Belgian is carded for his troubles. #CFCLive
Cahill attacks the corner and it's blocked for another. #CFCLive
Willian drives at the Sporting defence and sees his low centre deflected behind. Chelsea sub now, Mikel on for Oscar. #CFCLive
Fabregas's delivery is held by Rui Patricio. #CFCLive
Hazard jinks into the corner and is bundled over. Chelsea free-kick. #CFCLive
It's end to end stuff here. Diego Costa does magnificently to carry the ball upfield and win his side a throw-in. #CFCLive
Matic tracking back puts the ball out for a Sporting corner. #CFCLive
This one is more dangerous but again the hosts deal with it. They then launch an attack of their own. #CFCLive
We keep the pressure up and Filipe Luis does well to win another corner. #CFCLive
Fabregas's delivery is cleared. #CFCLive
Mauricio after committing that foul is stretchered off, Oliveira on. Now Chelsea have a corner. #CFCLive
Diego Costa knocks the ball past Mauricio who almost rugby tackles him to the ground. Clear foul. #CFCLive
Ivanovic goes into the book for a bodycheck. #CFCLive
A first Chelsea change - Willian on for Schurrle. #CFCLive
A spell of Sporting pressure ends with Adrien Silva shooting harmlessly over. #CFCLive
Oscar latches on to a long ball and is in the clear but his shot is saved by Rui Patricio. At the other end Nani goes close. #CFCLive
Plenty of Chelsea invention in the final third tonight but at the moment just a single goal lead to show for it. #CFCLive
Oscar and Diego Costa break with pace and the latter's effort is blocked as he bore down on goal. #CFCLive
He takes it but it's cleared and Sporting break with Nani, who goes down looking for a foul but the ref waves his appeals away. #CFCLive
Fabregas picks out Schurrle with a neat first-time ball. The German wins a corner. #CFCLive
Schurrle sends over a low cross from the right after Oscar had picked him out and it's cleared by a stretching Sporting leg. #CFCLive
Nani has a go from distance but his shot flies wide of Courtois' goal. #CFCLive
And we're back underway. Come on you Blues! #CFCLive
The Chelsea team is back out for the second half. #CFCLive
Here's Nemanja Matic celebrating his first-half goal... #CFC
