Chelsea vs Aston Villa LIVE SCORE: Latest updates from Premier League match at Stamford Bridge.

CHELSEA are looking to put defeat against West Ham behind them as they face Aston Villa.

And Tammy Abraham is crucially back in the sides for the Blues.

    Villa still trying to have a go but all the real action is at the other end.

    Azpilicueta has two goes in a matter of seconds, the first blocked and the second steered across the face of goal and wide.

    So far, the substitution by Villa has not really altered things a lot.

    But there is only one goal in it. For now.

    Pulisic is causing no end of problems with his directness. He really likes having a dart.

    So does Willian, who forces a diving save from Heaton from the edge of the box.

    And the home fans are now happy as they tease Grealish and suggest he is not quite as good as Mount (or something like that).

    Home fans finally giving it large as their side keep their foot on the pedal.

    Villa struggling to get the ball out of their own half and Chelsea running at them with genuine threat and invention.

    Smith acts before the hour, Luiz on for Hourihane, seeking to change the flow of the game.

    Lot more intensity now, from both sides and Abraham so close to getting the crucial touch to Willian's deflected cross.

    For the moment, Villa are just about hanging on as Chelsea look for the third that would probably wrap up the points.

    But while they have Grealish, they have some hope.

    Wow – what a start to the second half.

    And what a strike by Mount.

    Villa pay the price for backing off Willian as Abraham chests his ball down for Mount.

    But that finish, on the volley and flying past Heaton's left hand to find the top corner, is absolutely magnificent from 15 yards. You can't do much about a hit like that.
