Aston Villa faced off against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier this evening as they looked to pull off a major upset away from home. The Villans made a nightmare start to the game as they conceded the opening goal in the 15th minute when Romelu Lukaku scored with a clinical finish which was enough to give Chelsea a narrow 1-0 lead at half-time.
Mateo Kovacic pounced on a defensive mistake by Tyrone Mings to score early in the second half. Lukaku put the icing on the cake for the West London giants by scoring another goal in injury-time as the Villans ended up losing the contest by a 3-0 scoreline.
Let’s take a look at how each Aston Villa player performed during the clash against the Blues.
GK: Jed Steer – 5.5/10
The Villans keeper made one save in the game but will be disappointed after conceding three goals during the 90 minutes.
RB: Matty Cash – 6/10
Cash did his fair share of defending but it was not enough for his team to get anything out of this clash.
CB: Ezri Konsa – 7/10
He was a rock at the back as he made plenty of crucial clearances throughout the game. However, his good work defensively was not enough in the end.
CB: Axel Tuanzebe – 6/10
Tuanzebe put in a battling display on the defensive end of the field. But he couldn’t do much about Lukaku who bested him quite a few times during the game.
CB: Tyrone Mings – 4/10
Mings made a huge mistake to gift Kovacic a goal early in the second half. He was also at fault in the lead-up to Lukaku’s second goal.
LB: Matt Targett – 6/10
Targett had to defend a lot and only managed to make one good chance in the opposition half.
CM: Jacob Ramsey – 6.5/10
He was not afraid of the occasion and produced an eye-catching display at the centre of the park. He caused a lot of problems for Chelsea in the final third but was substituted in the 55th minute.
CM: Douglas Luiz – 6/10
The Brazilian talent struggled to get a foothold in the game and failed to offer enough protection for his teammates at the back.
CM: John McGinn – 7/10
The Scottish midfielder was full of energy as usual and managed to create quite a few inviting opportunities for his teammates. He also worked hard defensively inside the Villa half.
ST: Danny Ings – 5/10
Ings hardly got a sniff at goal and had a frustrating outing at Stamford Bridge. He was marked out of the game by the Chelsea centre-backs.
ST: Ollie Watkins – 7/10
He made a lot of good runs with the ball and was a constant menace for the opposition defenders. He was always willing to have a shot but failed to register a goal.
CAM: Leon Bailey – 6/10
Bailey added some pace to Dean Smith’s attack.
RW: Bertrand Traore – 6/10
Traore didn’t get enough chances to find the back of the net.
CM: Marvelous Nakamba – 6/10
He added some energy to the Villans’ midfield.
