Chelsea captain Ben Chilwell reveals players’ mood before Blues away win at Aston Villa

Chelsea skipper Ben Chilwell says tonight’s result and performance was ‘needed’ and said the changing room were confident before the game that they’d get through.

He told ITV’s coverage: “It was exactly the reaction we wanted and needed. It wasn’t about wanting a reaction. We needed it. Fair play to all of the boys.”

“We wanted that pressure. We thrived off it. The confidence before the game in the changing room was the best I have seen it – the togetherness.

“We delivered on the pitch today.

“As a club, the players, manager, the staff, the fans everyone involved in the club. It wasn’t just the manager. Everyone associated with the club needed that today.”
