    Yes I was going to post that as a view from the ground, it seemed that was not clear on the coverage from the previous posts.

    He was left 2 on 1 at the back post by the CBs

    Looked to me like he ended up picking up neither, but happy to be proven wrong.

    The Villa goal? It was a very lucky - awkward bounce and bundled into the net - head, knee and shin all utilised - kind of a goal. The Chelsea defence shouldn't have let Villa get a cross in and James should have cleared and maybe Kepa should have done better? But it was a lucky goal. Sometimes that just happens.

    That's because as the full back he was initially marking the wider player, when he saw where the ball was going he tried to get to the scorer but was on the wrong side of them.

    I guess one might say he should have been goal side but we have lost many goals this season to attackers beyond the far post and that is what he was covering

    To be honest, Reece’s defensive work in transition has been pretty wanting this year, but I’ll watch the play again to see.
