We deserved all 3 points, Zat should never have been sent off. I am glad we had the penalty, and Carvellho could have broken Gabi's leg with the challenge..disgrace. After a rocky start Curtis Davies started to look very good. At least we had a little bit of luck with the penalty, we certainly deserved it. The referee was an absolute disgrace and should be dropped from premier league games.

Kaybee, I have just watched the whole game - Chelsea were filthy disgrace Ballack should have been sent off after a minute on the pitch after diliberately elbowing Barry in the face. Both Cole's diving around like they are owed something. The game hinged on a completely disgraceful refereeing performance, Zat stays on the pitch, we absolutely domintated you - even when we had 10 men - Chelsea had about a 15 minute spell in all the second half, half of the Chelsea team did not look interested - Ballack should have Video evidence used against him too.

I listened to it on the radio and it was fantastic,I'd like to see what happened before I say we were robbed but it sounded like we were.The team deserve enormous credit,delighted that Curtis finally got some action and Maloney stepping up now.The fans sounded terrific on the radio aswell.Something needs to be done about the ref at this stage,he cheated Blackburn against us,and Robbie Keane against Birmingham,today turned into a bit of a farce.

what a match! Referee absolutely appauling, have they been told to red card every challenge? SToopid zat knight for being so clumsy, hopefully davies will get a run in the team now. Just a great effort by villa, worked hard and never gave up, I feared the worse but bloody great, need a lie down now

I was driving back from my Parents and did not get in the car until 3.10pm, switched on the radio and had to wait until 3.35 before I got the score on 5 live, started with Chelsea 4 and I thought oh ***** we got a drubbing, nearly went across 3 lanes of the M4 when I heard we got 4, will have a good look at Football firts tonight

I noticed that at the start, Mr Fear. I'd imagine he was rested, based on recent form he can't have been dropped.
