Chelsea 2-1 Aston Villa 2013: Highlights and Reaction

It was a throwback to the old José Mourinho days at Stamford Bridge after that team came away with a hardfought 2-1 victory against Aston Villa. These are the kind of games that decide the league titles. Antonio Luna’s own goal gave Chelsea the lead, although credit should be given to Eden Hazard. However, Aston Villa equalised just at half-time through Christian Benteke to give a scare for Chelsea. Branislav Ivanovic’s second-half header, though, restored Chelsea’s lead and also gave three points after the end of a very difficult match.

Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Cole; Ramires, Lampard; Mata (Mata 64), Oscar (Van Ginkel 83), Hazard; Ba (Lukaku 64)

Goals: Luna (OG) 7, Ivanovic 72

Aston Villa (4-3-3): Guzan; Lowton, Vlaar (c), Clark (Okore 42), Luna; El Ahmadi (Tonev 81), Westwood, Delph; Weimann, Benteke, Agbonlahor

Goals: Benteke 45+2

  2. Not too impressive performance frm chelsea team.

  3. Pls we need leftfoot back, n ataker

  4. We can not win man u wit this form

  5. We need mikel in our midfield

  6. Cech,azpili,ivan,luiz,cole,remires,MIKEL,oscar,mata,harzad and ba/lukaku without this squad we can not make it at old traford on monday think about it mourinhor

  7. Averagely ok jose u can stil inprove them

  8. Mourinho ur line up is not gud if u line up like dis against man u will we be defeated.d player will need is azpili,luiz baba,cahil,cole,mike,ramires,debruyne,oscar,hazard,lukaku

  9. I love chelsea

  10. Combination of Lampard and Ramires was the problem in d match, it seems some coaches don’t still get the kind of role Mikel plays for chelsea, with Mikel at def midd the back four relaxes

  11. Yes with mikel i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ the mid-field,the defenders confirmed they are comfortable. How lampard в̍̍̍̍̊ε̲̣̣̣̥ playing 90+ for if not necessary and mata is our best player. ℓ̊ guess jose is not geting it at all.

  12. With Cech,cahil,aspi,cole,mikel,ramires,mata i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ the middle,hazard’oscar/moses,torres/ba chelsea won man U̶̲̥̅̊ 3/5 draw 1 and lose1(controversially).even beat a/villa 8:0 and 2 :1.so what is difficult i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ using this players,any team selection aside this against man U̶̲̥̅̊ ,then we rae doomed.

  13. Jose morinho should в̍̍̍̍̊ε̲̣̣̣̥ picking from what he sees i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ the training not jst trying to bring-in his summer signings at un- due time and quit playing mata i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ the flanks most Ø̶̷̩̥̊͡Ƒ̶̷̩̥̊͡ the time.jose alt to have watch clips and see how these players perform i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ there natural wings.that was how he did for mikel(best cfc holding mid) and now ignoring him for 34yrs lampard playingevery minute with much load on ramires and the defenders

  14. iam a little bit diapointed wit jose dis time. Is it compulsry dat u must play dose guys u buy. This current chelsea squard cannot make it against a stronger team. We dnt hv a strong dm 4 now so use mikel, he can stabuliz our game and allow Ramires 2 do all d damage and runing around

  15. Cech,azpli,luiz,iva/cah,cole,ramires,mikel,mata i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ the middle,hazard,oscar,ba/torres/lukaku. sub:bebryne/hazard moses/oscar lamp/raires with 4-2-3-1 ℓ̊ bet you’ man U̶̲̥̅̊ can not survive.blue is the colour.

  16. Completely disappointed i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ morinhho the match almost ended 2 :2 with …N̤̥̈̊ø impact from his must-used average signings.imagine mata who was played i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ wrong wing went-off @64min @ Τ̲̅ђα̲̅ђ crucial time for premier league experience team villa.was it …N̤̥̈̊ø 1st half xtra time they got their 1:1 draw which they almost did die-minute 2nd half.

  17. Keep it more effort.

  18. Chelsea hav 2 use mikel agaist man u nd mata includin luiz
