Diego Costa’s tap-in and an Alan Hutton own goal gave Chelsea their first win in four matches on Saturday as the Premier League champions beat Aston Villa 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Both sides came into the clash out of form and separated by just four points in the lower reaches of the table but Costa – returning from a suspension for his antics against Arsenal last month – proved key as goals in each half got Jose Mourinho’s men back on track after a tricky run of results.
Mourinho was charged by the Football Association in midweek for his outburst after the 3-1 defeat to Southampton and dropped the likes of Eden Hazard, Gary Cahill and Oscar to the bench from that loss.
While the changes made little difference early on as Villa edged the opening stages, Costa benefited from a defensive mix-up between Brad Guzan and Joleon Lescott 10 minutes before half time.
Villa – winless in the league since the opening day – offered signs that they could get back into the game but were out of luck for Chelsea’s second as Costa’s shot looped past Guzan off the unlucky Hutton.
While Chelsea continued to look off their best, Mourinho’s side ended their winless run ahead of a tricky midweek trip to face Dinamo Kiev in the Champions League, while Villa’s fifth consecutive Premier League defeat will keep the pressure on Tim Sherwood as they remain in the bottom three.
