  • TRAORE!!! 1-0 VILLA! The hosts lead against the run of play! The former Chelsea man is unmarked as he meets Targett's low corner into the box. Although he scuffs his first-time shot into the ground, it loops over the dive of Mendy and goes in off the crossbar.

  • CHILWELL!!! 2-1! Hope for Chelsea! Following a lovely move down the right side, Pulisic plays a neat one-two with Ziyech before crossing. Although Werner does not connect, Chilwell arrives late at the far post and his volley is over the line before Martinez claws it out.

  • RED CARD FOR AZPILICUETA! Chelsea down to 10 men! The Blues skipper is given his marching orders as he reacts to Grealish's foul by pushing his hand into the face of the Villa talisman. Contact was minimal and Grealish certainly made the most of it, but that was irresponsible from the Spaniard.
