Chelsea fans laud Ben Chilwell despite defeat to Aston Villa

Chelsea were beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa on Sunday as Thomas Tuchel’s men scraped into next season’s Champions League. Afterwards, the fan base did reserve some praise for Ben Chilwell.

It was the former Leicester City man who scored the goal which got Chelsea back into the contest, although goals from Bertrand Traore and Anwar El-Ghazi but Tuchel’s men to the sword.

Fortunately for Chelsea, Leicester were beaten at home by Tottenham which meant joy for the Blues who will now play in the Champions League next season – even if they don’t lift the trophy on Saturday.

Chilwell swapped the King Power Stadium for Stamford Bridge last summer, costing the Blues £45 million. In his maiden campaign at the club, he’s made 41 appearances and helped Chelsea reach two finals.
