Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic has taken to Twitter to express his delight at his side’s win against Aston Villa on Wednesday evening.

Frank Lampard’s team got the better of Villa 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in London in the Premier League.

Trezeguet restored parity for Villa in the 41st minute, and just three minutes into the second half, Abraham set up Mason Mount for the home team’s second goal, which proved to be the winner.

The win saw Chelsea bounce back from the defeat to West Ham United at Stamford Bridge in the London derby, and midfielder Kovacic is over the moon.
