Matt Miazga Can Handle The Pressure At Chelsea – What We Learned From The Aston Villa Game

The match between the two saddest stories of this campaign underwent at Villa Park with Chelsea running out with a 4-0 victory. Ruben Loftus Cheek opened the scoring, Alexander Pato and a Pedro brace completed the rout of the relegation battlers.

Hiddink’s men continued their unbeaten streak in the league under him and the performance gave fans something to cheer about. The victory got the blues to 9th in the table and realistically a Europa League spot is still within reach. Let’s take a look at the three things learned from the game against Villa:

1. Pato goal a welcoming sign:

When Loic Remy got off injured, Pato entered with a rousing applause from the away fans and the Brazilian didn’t disappoint. He won a penalty and slotted it calmy to score his first Chelsea goal. It was a good debut for Pato and he needs to be played more often in the remaining games.

2. Matt Miazga can handle the pressure at Chelsea:

The youngster was one of the standout performer and had a quiet time in the cleansheet. He made some fine tackles and was good in the air too. If Terry leaves, Miazga needs to be developed and nurtured in the first team squad and making him a regular for the blues.

3. Villa fans deserve better:

The players don’t care, the owners don’t care and the fans are paying a price for it. It is sad to see Villa in such a state. The club needs a complete overhaul and the fans need to get used to the life in the Championship.
