    GOAL! Chelsea 3-0 Aston Villa (Romelu Lukaku): The Belgian is at the double to give Chelsea a rather flattering victory. Azpilicueta races down the right on the counter-attack and pulls it back to Lukaku, who takes a touch and fires it into the roof of the net.

    Apologies for the lack of commentary - a slight technical error.

    Mendy won't be beaten like that. Watkins, for what feels like the umpteenth time today, gets a shot away, this time from distance, but it's simple for the Chelsea goalkeeper.

    Wide! Alonso nearly gets on the scoresheet but drags his shot wide. That would have killed it!

    Traore creates the space to get a shot away and wins Villa a corner. Konsa wriggles free from his marker to meet McGinn's resultant delivery but directs his header straight at Mendy.

    Chelsea fans are in buoyant form as Hudson-Odoi provides the trickery, but if Aston Villa get on the scoresheet soon it could make for a very interesting finish.

    The presence of Jorginho has helped Chelsea in the second half. It is hard to see how Saul gets his place back in the side after today.

    It's all Chelsea now. Alonso races down the left but his cross is scrambled behind for a corner by Mings. Nothing comes of the corner, but the Blues are in total control at the moment.

    That second goal has changed things and Chelsea are coasting now, as Havertz creates an opening but drags his shot wide.
