Chelsea Scrape Past Villa

English Premier League

Result: Aston Villa 1-2 Chelsea

Date: 07 February 2015

Venue: Villa Park

Goals from Eden Hazard and Branislav Ivanovic handed Chelsea a 2-1 win over Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues went ahead as early as the eighth minute, as Willian teed up Eden Hazard, who slotted into the corner with composed finish.

Villa should have been level in the 19th minute, Fabian Delph picked out Gabriel Agbonlahor with a fine cross but the striker managed to put his header over the crossbar from close range.

Chelsea continued to dominate after taking the lead, and could have been further ahead but for Brad Guzan pulling two big saves to deny Oscar and John Terry in the 23rd minute.

Surprisingly, Villa managed to level the matters three minutes after the halftime break, as an un-marked Jores Okore turned home Gil's delightful cross.

Mourinho's men restored their lead in the 66th minute, as Branislav Ivanovic was quickest to react to a loose ball before rifling the ball beyond Guzan.

Mourinho's men survived a late surge from Villa to hold, as Mourinho claimed his first win at Villa Park.
