Match report: Kepa and Mount Brilliance increase the pressure on Gerrard
Chelsea have continued their excellent results under the management of Graham Potter with a win at villa park against Aston Villa in game week 11 of the Premier League.
The Blues were gifted the opening goal that was scored by Mason Mount after an error from Tyron Mings.
The game was not easy for the visitors by all means, as they were under heavy pressure from the home team with 18 goal attempts, 7 of them on target.
But a moment of brilliance from Mason Mount in the 65th minute through a direct free kick doubled the lead and reduced the pressure on the blues until the end of the game.
Man of the match:
It was a hard choice between Kepa and Mount as the later scored all the goals of the game, but Kepa’s Contribution with a string of fabulous saves is definitely what secured the Blues safe route to win the game, preventing the hosts from scoring – at least – 3 big chances.
