Comments:

League position: 11th Chelsea avoided losing consecutive Premier League home games for the first time since October / November 2011. Prior to this game, only Sunderland (18) had conceded more Premier League goals than Chelsea (17) after eight games of the 2015-16 season. They have conceded at least twice in seven of those eight games. Due to injury, Branislav Ivanovic missed his first Premier League game since 11 January 2014; an unbroken run of 63 starts. Loic Remy replaced Willian in the second minute of added time in the second half.

Comments:

League position: 18th Aston Villa have now not kept a Premier League clean sheet at Stamford Bridge since March 1998. They had now conceded 32 goals in their last nine visits. Villa had now only taken one point from eight Premier League games since beating AFC Bournemouth on the opening day and had now lost five in a row. They had now lost 18 Premier League games in 2015; more than any other team.
