Not sure what to say about this one. Aston Villa showed just how inexperienced and young they truly are. Chelsea ran rampant and Villa looked defeated from the first goal in only the 3rd minute all the way up to the final whistle. Christian Benteke should have done better up front, but got himself caught offside far too many times, many of which should have been prevented. Chelsea started with David Luis in midfield which certainly suits him much better. Fernando Torres got on the score sheet along with Frank Lampard, in his 500th Premier League appearance. Despite all the goals, Villa’s goalkeeper, Brad Guzan, was certainly their beset player on the pitch. Chelsea move back up into third place with the win. Enjoy the highlights below.
