Football results Chelsea – Aston Villa

Aston Villa seemed to have a chance to celebrate early in the 12th minute. After McGinn’s free kick was pushed over the bar by Petrovic, the visitors took a low corner kick and Diaby’s shot changed direction before being finished by Douglas Luiz into the goal. But VAR stepped in and Luiz was determined to have touched the ball, making the goal not count.

7 minutes after that missed goal, Aston Villa narrowly escaped. Lenglet passed straight to Palmer in the Aston Villa penalty area, but Emiliano Martinez got close and used his foot to block it in the face-off. In the 30th minute Palmer had a dangerous pass in and Moreno, pressured by Madueke, almost scored an own goal but Dibu Martinez once again saved Aston Villa.

At the end of the first half, both teams missed dangerous opportunities. Martinez blocked a close-range header from Badiashile in the 45th minute and two minutes later at the other goal, Tielemans shot over the crossbar in a favorable position after being cleared by Diaby.

In the second half, Aston Villa once again “gave a gift” to Chelsea when Martinez himself missed a pass at Palmer’s feet, but this player missed the volley. In the 73rd minute, Watkins directly threatened Chelsea’s goal for the first time with a shot from a slightly narrow angle that was blocked by Petrovic. The Serbian goalkeeper showed his talent again just 1 minute later, alertly cutting in and finishing the shot into the far corner of full-back Matty Cash.

Tension continued for more than 10 minutes. In the 83rd minute, Kamara passed too lightly to Martinez, but the Argentine goalkeeper jumped out in time to prevent Gallagher from stealing the ball, and 3 minutes later it was Petrovic’s turn to escape on the other side of the field after he punched the ball out poorly and Konsa missed the shot. column in a messy phase.
