(Video): Struggling Timo Werner scores after superb Reece James cross

Chelsea lead against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup.

The Blues had been pretty evenly matched in the first half against the Villains, but came out looking much brighter in the second period.

Reece James had been one of the top Blues in the first half, and he played an instrumental role in this goal, swinging a superb ball in from the right for Timo Werner to attack.

The German striker has had his issues in front of goal, but he made no mistake here, planting a header into the net.
