Pato Shines On Debut As Chelsea Rout Aston Villa Away

Alexandre Pato scored on his Chelsea debut as Aston Villa continued their slide towards relegation with the interim boss Eric Black over seeing a limp performance at a frustrated Villa Park, where supporters voiced their anger and despair and displayed banners venting their feelings.

On the pitch, Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s first Premier League goal gave Chelsea the lead before Pato’s introduction for his maiden Chelsea appearance following his signing in January.

The Brazilian soon converted a penalty he won himself and he was also instrumental in the second half, combining with countryman Oscar to create two goals for Pedro, as the Blues’ slender hopes of a top-six finish were given a boost

The home fans chanted against their players and owner Randy Lerner as the Blues took control in the second half.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s deflected shot and Pato’s precise penalty had given the visitors a healthy half-time lead.

Pedro scored twice – slotting in Oscar’s pull-back and hammering home a loose ball – before Alan Hutton was sent off to compound Villa’s misery.
