  • Thanks for all your comments today folks! Don't forget, you can always follow me on Twitter: @RazMirza to send me your views so until then, it's Adios!

  • The Premier League leaders have been beaten! A sumptuous goal by Fabian Delph helped Aston Villa beat NINE-MAN Chelsea 1-0 who also had manager Jose Mourinho sent to the stands.

  • RAMIRES is shown a straight red card for a disgraceful chellenge on Karim El Ahmadi.

  • OFF THE CROSSBAR!! Ashley Westwood sets Fabian Delph on his bike again but his deflected effort cannons off the crossbar and out for a corner.<

  • We're into FOUR added minutes at Villa Park.

  • Ramires is shown a yellow card by referee Chris Foy as we enter stoppage time.

  • Christian Benteke, who has scored in two of his three Premier League appearances against Chelsea, tests Petr Cech from range.

  • Delph decides to play a crossfield pass and then Villa pass the ball about at the back.

  • Villa are playing percentage football now as they look to run down the clock.

  • Villa have also failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven home Premier League matches. Can they hold on?

  • Villa have not won back-to-back Premier League home matches since August 2011 - 69 games ago!

  • WHAT A GOAL!!! It's all gone wrong for Chelsea. Willian has been sent-off and they're now a goal down and what a goal! Fabian Delph makes a surging run through the middle before picking out Marc Albrighton down the left. The substitutes' return ball is flicked into the far corner thanks to some sublime improvisation by the midfield man and we're on course for a major upset at Villa Park.


  • SO CLOSE! Ron Vlaar gets above Branislav Ivanovic but is just unable to keep his header down from the resulting corner.

  • Nemanja Matic is penalised for bringing down Andreas Weimann. The ball into the box is well defended.

  • Since Chelsea have gone down to 10-men, they've had 63 per cent of possession.

  • Eden Hazard either looks to find the far stick or pick out Demba Ba. he does neither and Villa are let off the hook.

  • Ciaran Clark comes on for Joe Bennett just before the free-kick is about to be taken.

  • Ron Vlaar is shown a yellow card for hacking down substitute Andre Schurrle on the edge of the area.

  • Fabian Delph opens up the angle ahead of him but his low curler is always wide of the mark. A poor attempt!
