Stamford Bridge disappointment: Chelsea fail to make most of their chances against Aston Villa
The match was a thrilling one, with missed opportunities for both teams, with Chelsea squandering the most of the chances.
A key moment in the game saw Douglas Luiz’s goal ruled out for handball after 12 minutes.
Villa couldn’t cope with Chelsea’s high press, as the Blues forced them into multiple errors.
Emiliano Martinez made some saves against Chelsea’s Noni Madueke and Cole Palmer to keep the score even.
Cole Palmer also missed a golden opportunity after an error from Aston Villa’s defence. The match saw both teams creating numerous opportunities but failing to convert them into goals.
Palmer will definitely be wishing he took some of his chances cleanly.
Chelsea had several chances, but their finishing lacked precision. Martinez’s goalkeeping for Aston Villa was a standout performance, repeatedly thwarting Chelsea’s attempts. Chelsea goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic was also solid when called into action in the second-half, but it was Martinez who was the busier of the two goalkeepers.
The match will be replayed at the Villa Park.
