Chelsea locked horns with Aston Villa at Villa Park earlier today as they hoped to earn a good result away from home. The Blues made an excellent start to the game as they got themselves ahead in the sixth minute courtesy of a cool finish from Mason Mount. Graham Potters’ men went into the half-time break with a 1-0 lead.
Chelsea sat on their lead well after the half-time break and doubled their lead when Mount scored again in the 65th minute with a well-taken freekick as the contest finished 2-0 in favour of the Blues.
