Our Unsung Hero: Chelsea Fans React To Player's Immaculate Performance

Chelsea may have won by three goals to nil against Aston Villa. Hence, stars like Striker Romelu Lukaku who scored twice will unsurprisingly take all the glory.

Chelsea boss Tomas Tuchel made a huge gamble by starting Marcos Alonso and Calum Hudson Odoi on the wing back spots, with Chillwell and Azplicueta available to take those spots.

Hence, during the first half, it was relatively easy for Villa to counter attack through the wings. In midfield, Tuchel also made a huge risk of playing Saul despite having the option of playing Jorginho.

The midfielder was slow as Lukaku complained time and time again about his sideways passing.

Hence, with Kante still unavailable, Chelsea were left exposed to Astonvilla's counter attacks during the first half.

However, Aston Villa were unable to get past Chelsea goalkeeper Edourd Mendy, who proved once again, that he was one of the most underrated goalkeepers, in the Football world.

One particular double save during an Aston Villa corner, was spectacular. Edourd Mendy is yet to concede from open play in the Premiere League this season.

Hence Mohamed Salah's penalty against Chelsea is the only goal Mendy has conceded in the league this season.
