Villans Beat Chelsea on league standings
Watch Chelsea vs Aston Villa Highlights, as Unai Emery’s side gave up a big defeat for potter’s side.
Chelsea is in 11th position of the premier league table, while Aston advanced a lot in the premier league standings and been currently positioned in the ninth place of the premier league standings.
Chelsea vs Aston Villa Highlights
Ollie Watkins opened the score from a Marc Curcurlla blunder at Stamford bridge, taking the Chelsea defender backwards to lob home, before John McGinn’s second half rocket put the game out of her reach for the home side.
It was a quite a scene for Chelsea, who lost chance after Villa exploited their weakness on the forward strike.
Villans are in the continuous five wins in a run, since Unai Emery took the place as the manager, and means to have gained up 16 points from Away home matches, which was only achieved by two teams including Manchester city in that time.
All of the chelsea’s victories in this season came up from the Bottom half clashings, but they tend to drop to 11 position of the premier league table, while Villas moved to the ninth position of the table. Villas are one point below of the eighth placed Liverpool.
Villans advances in the premier league
Aston Villa’s record of 26 points in 14 games under Emery is bettered only by the Premier League’s top three – Arsenal and the two Manchester clubs.
Based on this performance, it is easy to see why.Villa were happy to sit back and allow Chelsea to dominate in the attack, creating little themselves but benefiting from the home side’s poor finishing.
McGinn had hammered a powerful strike off the bar moments before Watkins’ opener but fired a 25-yard shot into the net in the 56th minute while Watkins’ goal was his fifth in as many consecutive away matches.
Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, making his 100th Aston Villa appearance, made a superb save with his feet to deny Joao Felix in the latter stages – as Emery’s genius engineered an important away win.
Emery outlined his side’s European ambitions after their 3-0 win over Bournemouth last time out – and with this victory, Villa’s hopes of qualification are growing.
Chelsea’s lethargic could be problematic
Chelsea were 12 places above Villa when there was a match played on 16 October, but they were separated only by goal difference coming into this game.
While their two wins in three matches before the international break had eased some pressure on Potter, this loss puts him firmly back in the spotlight.
His side were victims of their own downfall for the opener as Cucurella’s error, which could have been avoided had he left the ball for Kalidou Koulibaly to clear, allowed Watkins to chip goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, and they were vulnerable to the break throughout.
Trailing by one, they went on to pepper Villa’s goal with chances as Kai Havertz and Felix saw efforts well saved. Then Ben Chilwell headed home a perfectly weighted Enzo Fernandez pass but was deemed to have pushed Ashley Young in the back as he leapt and the goal was disallowed.
Chelsea’s best chance came to Mykhaylo Mudryk – signed in January in an £89m deal – when he collected the ball just inside the area and was one-on-one with the goalkeeper but his tame effort barely tested Martinez.
The Ukraine winger is yet to find the net in eight Chelsea appearances – and the sense that Potter is missing a clinical scorer remains. Here, they drew a blank despite 27 efforts at goal.
Their lack of potency persisted in the second half as N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic also missed chances and fans made their disappointment known as boos rang around Stamford Bridge at full-time.
