Well! That changes the complexion of this group. Atletico would have been happy to take the point, but now, will have to get a positive result against Roma. The game was an entertaining one, but the home side will feel they should have held on. As a neutral, though, Chelsea perhaps deserved to win the game on account of the number of chances they created. 

Despite taking off their biggest goal threats in Hazard and Morata, the team produced the goods which says a lot about their depth. That's two wins out of two, and Chelsea will feel confident they can finish as group leaders even though there are two tough games against AS Roma coming up. 

It was some game, lads and lasses. Time to wrap up and get some sleep! This is Amit Mishra signing off, and hope you enjoyed the game. For feedbacks, don't hesitate to tweet @Leamitmishra. 
...
Well well well! Kante, Alonso and Bakayoko combine well and refrain from shooting. Alonso, who finds himself in acres of space, crosses it in for Batshuayi to tap it in. It was the last kick of the game. Late drama at the Metropolitano!
...
FT: Atletico Madrid 1-2 Chelsea
...
90 + 3' GOAL FOR CHELSEA!!! And what a goal it was! Stunning play! 
...
90 + 3' Late free-kick for Chelsea. Can they conjure something from this? 
...
90 + 2' Gimenez shapes as if he is going to cross, but takes a wild shot. Goal kick. That should do it.   
...
Three minutes have been added on. 
...
90' Griezmann nearly sneaks in on goal, but it's cleared by Luiz. He hasn't had good service today, but with the little he's had, he has failed to produce. 
...
88' Chelsea's substitutions have taken the sting off their attack. Hazard and Morata were real threats. Willian and Batshuayi have failed to combine so far. 
...
Atletico are trying to finish strong, but their passing is letting them down in the final third again. 
...
Substitution for Chelsea: Christensen replaces Fabregas. 
...
85' Atletico play some lovely stuff there! An intricate move sees Gaitan collect the ball and cross it in for Luis who flicks it into the box, but it's cleared by the defence. From the second ball, Griezmann gets his chance but scuffs his shot. 
...
83' Atletico have become a lot more aimless with their passing than they were before. Fatigue creeping in now. 
...
Substitutions for Chelsea: Batshuayi is on for Morata, Hazard is replaced by Willian. 
...
81' Griezmann decides to cross and it's easily cleared by Chelsea. From the subsequent move, Saul's cross-cum-shot is gathered safely by Courtois. 
...
80' Freekick to Atletico Madrid. Dangerous position this. 
...
78' Atletico try to pass it around but inevitably, lose it while playing that final pass. We haven't seen consistent possession yet. It's end to end and game of counter-attacking football. 
...
Substitution for Atletico Madrid: Gimenez replaces Partey who was on a yellow. 
...
76' CHANCE FOR ATLETICO!!! Torres break with pace, has Griezmann as a runner, but instead sees glory and shoots. It's safely collected by Courtois. 
...
75' Chelsea haven't shied away from using the hoofball every now and then and it has worked pretty well. In Morata, they have an able player. 
...
73' Decent chance for Kante. He is free inside the box, gets the ball on his right, shifts it to his left and tries to smash it in. 
...
72' It seems like Torres will play as the central striker. Griezmann will play on the right, Gaitan on the left. 
...
70' Atletico's counters have look disjointed tonight. Chelsea have disrupted them well. 
...
Substitution for Atletico Madrid: Gaitan is on for Correa. Like for like replacement. 
...
Substitution for Atletico Madrid: Torres comes on for Carrasco. 
...
68' Everytime Hazard gets the ball, he looks threatening. They've struggled to deal with him. 
...
67' Partey tries one from about 35 yards out, and it goes way over the bar.
...
65' And as I say that, Atleti create an opening. Correa's cross is cleared by Luiz for a corner. Nothing comes off the subsequent set-piece as Godin is penalised. 
...
64' Fabregas has wasted more than one freekick tonight. Hasn't been able to clear the first defender in some of them. Chelsea firmly in the ascendancy now as Atletico are struggling to string passes together. 
...
62' CHANCE FOR CHELSEA!!! An absolute fracas in the box ends with Hazard squaring it to Fabregas who has the goal at his mercy. Well, his scuffs his effort. Should have been 1-2 to the away side. 
...
Sumptuous cross by Eden Hazard finds Morata in the box, who is ahead of Hernandez. Alonso's run takes away Godin. Chelsea deserve to be level. They've created a lot of chances. Game on!
...
59' GOAL FOR CHELSEA!!! Morata, finally, heads one in. It was coming! 
...
58' Griezmann, despite scoring the penalty, has been off-colour tonight. His touch lets him down on the counter as Atleti try to break forward. 
...
55' Unbelievable. Chelsea keep winning these second balls yet can't conjure a shot. In the subsequent move, Moses hits a first-time shot, but it bends away from the goal. 
...
54' Bad challenge from Griezmann. He joins Luiz and Partey in the caution book. 
...
51' Dear me! A smashing cross by Azpiliceta nearly finds his compatriot Morata. The travelling Chelsea fans have seen everything but a goal from their side!
...
50' Morata nearly breaks through after Cahill's pass squirms through to Jan Oblak. 
...
49' Koke's freekick finds Saul who leaps higher than Bakayoko and heads it wide. Half a chance that. 
...
47' Chelsea have started piling the pressure already. They'll need to be more clinical, and of course, watch out for the Atleti counters! 
...
