After the Chelsea vs Aston Villa game on Saturday, the coach of Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel said: “It was absolutely not comfortable. We played against a strong, strong Aston Villa side. They were well prepared. They looked very sharp and confident from the start and they caused us a lot of problems, especially in the first half.
“Second half was better. More control, a more fluid game, and then a lot of chances and half-chances that we did not take very well. We lacked the precision to have earlier goals but okay.
“Lukaku has the personality and self-confidence, wants to score and help the team with his goals, and has the composure to do it. He scored two very difficult goals, no easy tap-ins, and he made the difference for us and helped us get three points against a very strong Aston Villa side. He adds something to the group we did not have in this capacity so far.”
While Aston Villa coach, Dean Smith said: “I’m frustrated with the scoreline but football is about moments and we didn’t take our moments today.
” I feel with the squad I have available to me, with the quality of the squad and the athleticism we have, we can go and ask questions of these clubs and I thought we did that in the first half.
“The second goal took a lot of wind out of our sails. But there were a lot of positives, there’s a lot of belief in this group.”
