Chelsea was held at home today by Aston Villa in the English Premier League. Aston Villa comfortably held out for a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge to stay above Chelsea. This means the Blues have missed out on the chance to move into the top four on the league table. Aston Villa in fifth on goal difference. Lampard’s side took the lead through a well worked Olivier Giroud header but Anwar El Ghazi replied with a close range finish after half time. The Blues went into the game on the back of a 3-1 defeat in the London derby against Arsenal on Boxing Day. The Blues welcome Manchester City in their next Premier League game scheduled for January 3, 2021. That match could now be in jeopardy after a Covid-19 outbreak in the City camp led to the postponement of Monday’s meeting with Everton at Goodison Park.
