Chelsea needed a win at Aston Villa to secute 3rd place in the Premier League but shockingly lost 2-1.

However, the Blues needed help from our London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who beat Leicester City 4-2 at Kings Power Stadium.

Former Chelsea player Bertrand Traore scored the opener for Aston Villa from a corner kick just before half-time.

Anwar El Ghazi scored from the penalty spot in the second half to make it 2-0 for Aston Villa after Jorginho, who had a terrible game, fouled Traore in the Chelsea box.

Ben Chilwell pulled a goal back in a nerve-wracking finish and the Blues ended the game with 10 men after a red card for captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

However, our fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur rescued Chelsea by beating Leicester City 4-2, who twice led Tottenham but couldn’t hold on to their win.
