Lukaku’s Goals, Mendy’s Saves And Talking Points From Chelsea’s Victory

Lukaku’s Goals, Mendy’s Saves And Talking Points From Chelsea’s Victory, Chelsea endured a difficult first half to beat Aston Villa 3-0 in a game that Aston Villa should be proud of themselves too. We take a look at talking points from the game

Aston Villa started their pressing game early in the game and showed no respect to the Blues as they took the battle to them. Aston Villa looked dangerous whenever they attacked and Chelsea’s defense came to the rescue

Chelsea’s goalkeeper, Mendy showed why he is one of the best goalkeepers in England with top saves to keep Chelsea in the game. He made a double save to deny Aston Villa and also organised his defense well. His first and second half performance is that which Chelsea fans would be proud of

For Saul Niguez, he did not have the debut he wanted and he made a costly mistake which almost hurt Chelsea. He lost the ball close the box and Aston Villa launched an attack from it but Watkins failed to score after dribbling Mendy but Thiago Silva came to the rescue

Thomas Tuchel would not have his defense exposed by a weak midfield so he brought on Jorginho to stabilize his midfield and to cut off supplies to Watkins and it worked effectively as Chelsea began to possess the ball more and the introduction of Cesar Azpilicueta added strength to the Chelsea defense. The presence of more men in Chelsea’s midfield made Aston Villa to settle for long balls

Thiago Silva showed why he is one of Tuchel’s trusted defenders as he produced a brilliant performance to keep Aston Villa at bay. He was always present to block Villa’s shots and saved Chelsea with a vital block in the first half after Watkins had dribbled Mendy out of the way

For Romelu Lukaku, he showed why Chelsea needed a true number 9 other than Timo Werner. Opportunities in tough games may be hard to come but when it does, a good striker does as expected. Lukaku scored two beautiful goals from rare Chelsea counter attacks and that was his third goal for Chelsea this season
