There weren’t many Aston Villa fans who were expecting an easy victory over Chelsea on Wednesday evening in our next Premier League clash, but with some further recent improvements, there were some who fancied us for the draw.

As we know, that didn’t come to pass as Tammy Abraham came back to haunt us on the day, and we weren’t at our best in fairness either with individual mistakes coming to the fore once again, but one massive positive to come out of the tie was the was we dug in again and despite not being at our best, we weren’t steamrollered.

The scoreline would’ve been higher though had it not been for the performance of England goalkeeper Tom Heaton, who again more than proved his worth for us between the sticks.

With a number of top saves to keep the score at 2-1, having already impressed fans since his arrival from Burnley, some were left wondering how he wasn’t Gareth Southgate’s number 1.
