Mason Mount's stunning second-half volley was enough for Chelsea to see off Aston Villa 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

But that was as close as they came as Chelsea held on to secure their first win in four games.

After a scrappy start between the two sides with neither keeping the ball particularly well, Willian had the first chance.

Tammy Abraham was passed fit to face the club where he spent a season on loan having recovered from a bruised hip as Frank Lampard made five changes from the side that lost 1-0 to West Ham here on Saturday.

With five minutes to go, Villa gave it one last push and had their chances to equalise with Douglas Luiz twice going close and Elmohamady firing over.

Chelsea continued to press in waves of attacks and got their reward when Reece James curled in the cross and Abraham rose high to head past Heaton under no pressure.

Abraham chested down a cross into the box into the path of Mason Mount, who hit a thunderous volley into the roof of the net to end a run of six league games without a goal.
