Chelsea’s tricky run of form extended to one win in their last five games on Monday as they were held to a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.

Olivier Giroud headed the Blues in front late in the first half, but Anwar El Ghazi soon levelled things up. Chelsea enjoyed a number of good chances but failed to really test Emiliano Martinez in the Villa goal.

“It’s a draw against a good team, the performance was good, we deserved to win the game but we don’t,” he said (via Sky Sports News). “We’ve come through a difficult patch, that we want to improve. We saw a lot of signs of good attitude in the team, without quite having it in the final third.

“It leaves us having to do more of the same, because the season is tight. We’ve had a little difficult time, and today I saw some really good signs that I liked.
