McGinn: Chelsea are a tough team but Aston Villa were better in the first-half

Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn believes they were better than Chelsea in the first-half of their 3-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

“It’s a tough one, Chelsea are a tough team but the first-half I thought we were better,” McGinn told Aston Villa’s official club website.

“We made chances to score but didn’t take them.

“We were brave in the way we played, second-half the mistake gave them a foothold and momentum.

“There’s not many teams that will come and challenge Chelsea the way we did in the first-half, but the way we want to go and the places we want to go we want to come here and get at least a point.

“Overall disappointing but the signs are there that we are starting to play and create chances, which we weren’t doing before tonight.”
