Chelsea vs. Aston Villa - Football Match Report

Mark Lawrenson gives his prediction for Chelsea FC vs Aston Villa

"Chelsea's home defeat by West Ham on Saturday was a very odd result when you consider how both teams had been playing, but I think it was just a blip", he told. "Luckily we have another game midweek and we have a chance to redeem ourselves".

Trezeguet rounded off a fine move in somewhat comedic fashion to pull Villa level before the break, but a wonderful Mason Mount volley - from Abraham's chested lay-off - restored the home side's lead early in the second half.

Lampard said: "Tammy's near the top of the goalscoring charts and is showing his all-round game". "He's a personality that has grown in our dressing room every day with his enthusiasm and his will to win, and of course with players on such a good run, when they come out of the team you can miss them".

Substitute Douglas Luiz nearly snatched a point for Villa late on but Smith admitted he could have few complaints about the result, with Chelsea going close on several occasions and goalkeeper Tom Heaton having twice brilliantly denied Willian. Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga denied Ezri Konsa Ngoyo an equaliser in the dying moments.

After this result, Chelsea are in fourth place with 29 points. Aston Villa are 15th and only one point clear of the relegation area. That was missing at the weekend but today we were back to where we were.

"In terms of the team I saw, it was the team I want to see". "Tonight we weren't as consistent as we were on Sunday against Manchester United".

This was the first official return for Aston Villa first-team coach Terry since his departure as a player and the home fans displayed two banners in honour of their "captain, leader, legend" ahead of kick-off.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard expects to be told "very soon" whether the club's transfer ban has been lifted.
