Romelu Lukaku and Mateo Kovacic scored for Chelsea as they beat Aston Villa 3-0 and kept the pressure on Manchester United.
The scoreline doesn’t reflect the match, and on another day Villa could have had three goals themselves. But the hosts aren’t champions of Europe for nothing, and were simply more efficient in the clutch moments. Stamford Bridge rises to celebrate as their team go level on ten points with new leaders Manchester United. Villa remain 12th on four points but have many positives to take away from this, despite it all.
