"I'm pleased because that was us again, we had a blip against West Ham and today we were back".

Following the game, Lampard admitted it was unusual seeing his former team-mate in the opposing dugout - something he experienced last season when he was managing Derby County.

Terry spent almost two decades with Chelsea, winning the Premier League five times as well as the Champions League amid several other trophies.

Chelsea FC's win left them in fourth place in the Premier League table as they look to continue their push towards Champions League qualification. He's respectful of Aston Villa so it wasn't a massive celebration time.

"I haven't heard any more, so I would wait and reserve judgement [on Chelsea's plans for January] until we get the judgement and see where we want to go from there".

According to The Athletic, Chilwell is Chelsea's "number one target", although they are also considering alternatives, with Lampard having been unconvinced by current options Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso. I thought we played really well the whole game.

Why was the London Bridge attacker released?
She has been described as a "lovely, lovely woman" who was "fearless" by her former tutor. Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones were remembered at events in London and Cambridge.

Chelsea needed an immediate response after the interval and they delivered in the 48th minute.

The hosts could have scored several more as Willian continued to run Villa ragged and the Brazilian was only denied a goal of his own when Tom Heaton - Villa's best player - made a spectacular save to tip a free-kick onto his left-hand post.

Abraham, on his return from injury, scored a goal and registered a clever assist to set-up Mount to net the victor.

Meanwhile, Abraham has taken his game onto another level, scoring 11 club goals across all competitions as well as getting back into the England squad and netting his first Three Lions goal last month.

Beaten Villa boss Dean Smith bemoaned referee Chris Kavanagh's performance, saying: "You don't get much from officials here and I wasn't happy with their performance tonight".
