Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo felt they were "fantastic" for victory over Aston Villa.

Chelsea won 4-2 at Villa Park, with Branislav Ivanovic netting a brace and Fernando Torres also getting on the scoresheet.

Di Matteo said: "I thought we were strong, dominated and controlled the game apart from the five minutes when Villa scored two goals.

"Apart from that we had many chances and it was a shame we could not kill off the game earlier, but it was another fantastic performance.

"All the remaining games are massively important and we have done all we could do to put pressure on the sides above us in the Premier League."
