The Blues had Willian sent off midway through the second half with the score at 0-0 and lost Ramires to another red card in the closing stages, while their misery was compounded in stoppage time when manager Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands.

Delph converted in the 82nd minute with a masterful flick, denting Chelsea's title surge.

The midfielder won possession in midfield and passed to Marc Albrighton, who returned the ball for the former Leeds midfielder to back-heel superbly past Petr Cech.

And the man of the match told Sky Sports 1: "I thought we were the better team from the start and we looked like we wanted it more.

"We were well organised, we attacked when we had the chance and we defended well.

"We've been scoring goals like that in training and it's nice for it to come off in a game.

"Marc Albrighton's been superb ever since he's come back.

"I kept going at it, managed to get the breakthrough, gave it to Marc and he was going to cut it back.

"It was my best goal so far in the Premier League. We've been working hard since the last game. No-one gave us a chance. We needed to get a job done here, and luckily we've done it."

Delph missed the chance to double Villa's lead late on, and admitted: "I was a bit disappointed, to be honest. I thought I should have put it away. That'll haunt me a little bit but, at the end of the day, the three points was the more important thing and we're going home happy."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
