Aston Villa Vs Chelsea: Late Drama as Disasi's Winner Controversially Disallowed

In a dramatic Premier League clash, Chelsea fought back from a two-goal deficit to salvage a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa, with Conor Gallagher’s stunning equalizer stealing the spotlight.

The match was marked by controversy as Axel Disasi’s late header, which would have sealed a Chelsea comeback victory, was disallowed after a VAR review. Referee Chris Kavanagh overturned the decision due to a perceived foul by Benoit Badiashile on Diego Carlos.

Aston Villa initially surged ahead with a Marc Cucurella own goal and Morgan Rogers’ sharp finish, putting them 2-0 up at halftime. However, Chelsea’s dominance in the second half was rewarded when Noni Madueke and Conor Gallagher found the net to level the score.

The pivotal moment arrived in stoppage time when Disasi’s goal was controversially chalked off, sparking furious reactions from Chelsea’s players and manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Despite the disappointment, Conor Gallagher emerged as the standout player, notching a magnificent goal and driving Chelsea’s spirited second-half performance.

Unai Emery’s Villa held on to secure a point, maintaining their grip on fourth place in the Premier League standings. However, the contentious VAR decision will undoubtedly fuel discussions in the days to come, overshadowing an intense encounter at Villa Park.
