Chelsea returned to form in the Premier League with a much-needed 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

After a tentative start from both sides, Jose Mourinho’s team took the lead through Diego Costa.

The striker converted a cross from Willian in the 34th minute after Villa defender Joleon Lescott could not control a pass from United States goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Villa defender Alan Hutton scored an own goal for Chelsea’s second, deflecting Costa’s shot beyond Guzan on 54.

The result will ease pressure on Mourinho, whose side now has its third win from nine games, but his counterpart Tim Sherwood has not led Villa to a win since the first game of the season.
