Aston Villa 1-2 Chelsea: John Terry couldn't bring himself to celebrate Villa's goal

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith and his assistant John Terry

Chelsea's Champions League hopes were handed a massive boost today at Villa Park.

Frank Lampard's side came from a goal down against Aston Villa to seal a priceless 2-1 win, moving the Blues five points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United.

It initially looked as if it was going to be a frustrating day for Chelsea as Kourtney Hause fired the hosts into the lead just before half-time.

Lampard's side had been firmly on top, but Villa stuck against the run of play and the Sky Sports cameras then panned to Dean Smith and his assistant, John Terry.

The reaction from the latter to Hause's goal was evident - he wasn't overly happy at the thought of his beloved Chelsea going a goal down.

You can watch for yourself below and keep your eyes peeled for what appears to be a sigh from Terry at the end...

Smith's celebration and applause looks fairly passionate, but Terry's light applause in response to the goal looks so forced.

Villa's joy was quickly brought to a halt in the second-half by Chelsea as the west London team finally made their enormous superiority count.

Substitute Christian Pulisic equalised on the hour mark, before Olivier Giroud fired the Blues into the lead two minutes later.

Chelsea celebrate vs Villa

The situation now looks mighty bleak for Villa as they remain in the relegation zone and look utterly toothless on the pitch - aside from Jack Grealish.

In fact, Grealish set a Premier League record during the match, become the player to be fouled most in a single season since records began in England's top-flight.

Sadly for Villa, when they inevitably slip into the Championship next season their talisman will be taking his ability draw fouls elsewhere.
