Tyrone Mings sums up Aston Villa's performance against Chelsea perfectly in two words

England international Tyrone Mings has praised Aston Villa’s showing in the third round of the Carabao Cup against Chelsea.

Villa’s captain was left out of the travelling squad and was given a night off as head coach Dean Smith made a raft of changes for the cup fixture against the reigning European Champions at Stamford Bridge.

The likes of Cameron Archer, Jaden Philogene-Bidace, 17-year-old Carney Chukwuemeka all featured on the night, while Lamare Bogarde, Aaron Ramsey and Carney’s brother, Caleb Chukwuemeka were all left on the substitutes bench.

19-year-old Archer, who scored a hat-trick in Villa’s 6-0 win over Barrow in the second round of the Carabao Cup, started the game and netted an equaliser in the second half.

Matty Cash’s delivery was pinpoint as Archer’s header struck the underside of the crossbar before bouncing over Kepa Arrizabalaga’s goal-line to get Villa back on level terms.

Despite Villa’s spirited display, Timo Werner put the Blues ahead ten minutes into the second half with a clinical header of his own as he found space in the box to guide the ball beyond Jed Steer.

With the game level at full-time, Chelsea needed penalties to win the game as Reece James converted the decisive spot-kick after Ashley Young and Marvelous Nakamba missed their penalties.

After the game, Mings said of Villa’s inspired performance: “Incredible effort.”
