Chelsea made a return to winning ways against Aston Villa in the ongoing English Premier League on Sunday with an emphatic victory.

The host opened the scoring in the 28th minute via a Reece James own goal.

Chelsea equalized in the 34th minute via a Jorginho penalty while Romelu Lukaku gave the Blues the lead in the 56th minute.

A late penalty kick by Jorginho sealed the win for the Blues. In this article, Dozz takes a look at 2 players who were very influential in the win. Check it out below:

Thiago Silva

Since he joined the Blues, Thiago Silva has proved many times that he’s still a world class defender despite being 37 years old.

The Brazilian star organised things in the Chelsea’s backline and also helped to stop counter-attacks, especially in the first half.

Somewhat concerning then that he was forced off just seven minutes into the second half.

It was indeed a very impressive display from the ex-Paris Saint-Germain star.

Performances rating: 7.5/10

Romelu Lukaku

His impressive run also won the Blues a penalty in injury time. Outstanding.
