(Video): Chelsea concede brilliant header – just the first from open play this season

Aston Villa have levelled the score at 1-1 in Chelsea’s game against them in the Carabao Cup.

The Blues had taken the lead in a balanced game, but now Villa have struck back. The in form Matty Cash’s brilliant cross from the right was met by young Cameron Archer, whose superb leap allowed him to rise above the retreating defenders and fire the ball past Kepa with sweet contact off his forehead.

Chelsea have since come back into the game strongly – but as of yet they haven’t retaken the lead.
