Wasn’t very comfortable for 46 minutes. They were the better side. 
 

Credit to TT for recognising the issue and resolving it. 
 

Right side defensively was not good until he brought the skipper on.

Don't like to blow my own trumpet but watched a lot of Christensen at youth level and said he was the best young centre half I had seen since John Terry. I also made the claim that there was absolutely no doubt he would make it here and be a top, top quality player.

Just saying.....

Same here. Always looked comfortable on the ball and bringing it out. There's a lot of fans that like a scapegoat and he was one of them for a bit even last season I was defending him on here. What I don't get is our players getting slated when we were winning left right and centre. Mikel, Luiz, Willian, Drogba, Jorginho have all fallen foul to this. Never will understand that. It's even worse on social media

That’s better 😉

It’s good that we can pick a side like that and still win. 
 

Villa did also have some first choice players missing. Quite impressed for 70 mins with McGinn, would be a good capture for a top 6 side. 
 

Tiago Silva was imperious for me.

Just got back in home from the game. First half, Mendy is at my end - excellent and top class from him. 
 

Best one for me was the save at 1-0 when Watkins shot low and to Mendy’s right, Watkins shaped to go one side and whipped it near post at pace. A great save. As a former keeper how’d you see it?
 

Far better second half, once Jorginho got control of the ball. One of those players, you don’t miss until you don’t have him to hand. 

Remember being impressed at the time but that save sort of got lost due to later events......not just keepers but any keeper has to be "lucky"....but he makes his own luck and as someone else said...something like.."The harder I work the luckier I get!"

Contrast the Villa keeper...I think I read at the beginning that he has been at Villa for eight years and only three appearances...

He didn't have a bad game...just was not able to influence the result.....unlike our guy...all three Chelsea goals were very very good in execution...appropriate!.....Kova's goal a little underrated against Luky's brace but he didn't hesitate and hit the ball on the run without hesitation and as far as I could see meant it to go in where it did. The game killer goal.....

Jerry Barber, the golfer. As quoted by Gary Player. Been following this maxim for years, but my swing is still … erratic.
