Romelu Lukaku scores brace as Chelsea beat Aston Villa

Romelu Lukaku scored a brace and Mateo Kovacic added a third for Chelsea as they beat Aston Villa 3-0 and kept the pressure on Manchester United for top position in the Premier League.
The win was the 600th in the league of Chelsea, with the rest of the team only United to hit the 600. 690 wins are won by the Manchester Club.

"It's my dream because I've been here at age 11. For this moment, I've worked hard. For the win, I'm very glad. It was a game that was important to us. We have shown our desire to win from the very beginning and the result is very happy, "After the game, Lukaku said.
In Italy I played in a league where perhaps I had a game for one or more chances, so I had to play it. The situation I'm in, I'm very happy and we keep on going.

"Villa were very good and hard pressed, us three in particular up front. For us, they have made life very hard. It's awesome. For me, it's an infancy dream. In this situation I'm very pleased, but the work must continue."

Villa performed well in the first half but Edouard Mendy's excellent savings did not record any goals. After dancing around Axel Tuanzebe and beating Jed Steer 15 minutes later, Lukaku opened the scoring to Chelsea.
"It was very important he [Lukaku] opened up the game for us with the first and scored a fantastic second one," Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said. "He loves these kind of challenges. He was the key factor today." Villa started the second half strongly with Mendy forced into another good save from Tuanzebe. They were left to rue their missed chances when Kovacic doubled Chelsea's lead on 49 minutes.
After Cesar Azpilicueta went right on a run, Lukaku sealed the win for 93 minutes. Lukaku found that hit the net from the outside of the box with a left-foot shot. "Till the second goal, I was happy with our performance but did not take our odds. We were able to open a pitch and to play a guard ball with the quality of a team," said Dean Smith, a villa maanger.
"I felt it's a bad score, but this season we have better players and we have a deep talent to play in half Chelsea. That's what we did. It's an unjust scoreline.
