Aston Villa stun Chelsea at Stamford Bridge



Aston Villa pulled off a stunning display at Stamford Bridge as they sealed a 2-0 victory over Chelsea in a Premier League clash on Saturday.

The Unai Emery side secured another victory away from home with a composed display against the Blues to increase pressure on boss Graham Potter.

Ollie Watkins opened the scoring from a Marc Cucurella blunder in the 18th minute before John McGinn’s second-half rocket put the game out of reach for the home side.

Chelsea had 25 shots with eight on target while Villa managed five attempts and two on target.

It is Villa’s fifth win on the road since Emery took over as manager in October 2023, and means they have now picked up 16 points away from home.

Meanwhile, all 10 of Chelsea’s victories this season have come against bottom-half opposition but this defeat means they drop into 11th on the table.

Villa move up to ninth, one point off Liverpool in eighth.
