Aston Villa boss confesses, and says he’s happy with 2-2 draw; here’s why

Aston Villa boss Unai Emery has admitted he’s happy with the 2-2 draw with Chelsea at the Villa Park.

Villa were 2-0 up at half-time, but a rampant Chelsea turned the tie around in the second-half, and ended up levelling the scores.

Chelsea could have won in stoppage time, but a VAR decision called it off.

Unai Emery was surprised by the display from Chelsea, and admitted he was happy to get a point.

Unai Emery said: “We are very happy because today we achieved the first thing improving.

“We wanted to play Europa League last year and now we have a new challenge which is to play Champions League.

“Chelsea today showed the power.

“But, we are being consistent in 35 matches to draw at the end is a very good result.

“I want more, of course. Chelsea have very good players.

“The result was amazing in the first half. We were defending well and we didn’t concede a lot but of course we needed to keep more possession and it is difficult against Chelsea.”
