After the humiliating start, Chelsea have recovered from the small dent, but the big one yet to repair. Chelsea beat Aston Villa 2-0 in at Stamford Bridge with an own goal from Aston Villa player Alan Hutton.
This is Chelsea’s third victory in Premier League matches so far in new season. Jose Mourinho has left last year’s PFA Player of the Year Eden Hazard on bench and explained that he needs to concentrate on defending part also.
“I left out Hazard because we are conceding lots of goals. We need to defend better,”
He also said that Hazard has fight hard to regain his position and compete with Willian and Pedro.
“It was just a tactical decision, leaving super quality on the bench, but bringing tactical discipline and hoping that the team could be solid.
“Willian and Pedro did amazing defensive work and allowed the midfield players to be very comfortable. I continue that way, or he comes in our direction and tries to replicate the same work that Willian and Pedro did.”
Diego Costa displayed a better form after his 3 match suspension. Spaniard forward contributed the major part in crucial victory.
Mourinho told: “The way he was working in the past two weeks with us, I knew clearly he would bring something positive for us.”
