Premier League: Chelsea 0-1 Aston Villa

By Score More Aston Villa secured a victory at Stamford Bridge, compounding Chelsea's ongoing struggles under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The team ended the match with 10 men as right back Malo Gusto was sent off for a challenge on Lucas Digne, despite winning the ball.
