EPL Summary – August 21st 2013
Chelsea 2-1 Aston Villa
Branislav Ivanovic powered in a second-half header as Chelsea won a feisty game against Aston Villa.
Chelsea went ahead after Eden Hazard’s saved shot was unluckily pushed into his own goal by Antonio Luna, before Christian Benteke’s precise equaliser.
Ivanovic was left unmarked to convert a Frank Lampard free-kick, but only after Villa felt he should have been sent off for an elbow on Benteke.
Villa then had a late penalty appeal turned down after John Terry handled.
