Aston Villa 2-1 Chelsea Player Ratings: Tuchel's men qualify for Champions League despite defeat

Chelsea qualify for the Champions League despite falling to a 2-1 defeat at Villa Park as Tottenham did them a favour versus Leicester..

Chelsea clinched Champions League football for next season despite losing 2-1 to Aston Villa.

Leicester's 4-2 defeat at Tottenham means that Chelsea finish fourth in the Premier League ahead of their Champions League final against Man City next week.

But which players stood out most at Villa Park?

  • Jorginho has been one of the best midfielders in Europe since Thomas Tuchel took over Chelsea but he had an off-day against Aston Villa on Sunday.

    He was caught out defensively on a few occasions, giving up a booking in the first half after being taken on by Anwar El Ghazi.

    And he conceded the penalty which allowed El Ghazi to double Villa's lead as the Italo-Brazilian clumsily took down first goalscorer Bertrand Traore in the area.

    His misery was completed when he was hauled off on the hour mark by Tuchel.

    Mason Mount was named Chelsea's Player of the Year after an excellent 2020/21 campaign in which he scored six goals and contributed five assists in the Premier League.

    However, he fell below the levels he has maintained this season against Villa.

    At 0-0 Mount missed a sitter as he lashed wildly high and wide when it seemed easier to score.

    His usual creativity was also not on show as despite dominating possession and territory for long spells, Mount failed to make any clear chances for his teammates.

  • Chilwell was the best player on the pitch at Villa Park as he constantly created overloads down Aston Villa's right-hand side.

    The England left-back bombed up and down the flank all game and he got Chelsea back in the game with 20 minutes remaining by slotting home at the far post.

    He created a fine chance for substitute Kai Havertz to equalise, only for the German midfielder to head wide.

    Chilwell himself also went close to a second as Emi Martinez denied him with a superb save with minutes left
