Chelsea debutant Miazga: Tough seeing Aston Villa fans jeer Guzan

Chelsea debutant Matt Miazga felt sorry for Aston Villa's players during Saturday's 4-0 win.

Miazga made his first start for the Blues and was surprised to hear the claret and blue faithful turn on their own players as frustrations boiled over.

He said: “I never played in an atmosphere where the fans are booing the home team.

“But it is what it is and you have to focus on your own game and try and help your own team.

“I know Brad quite well and have been to international camp with him once or twice already.

“Yeah (I do feel for him) Of course, you never want to see a player you know getting booed but it is football.

“Brad is going to keep playing and keep playing well and trying his best for this club.

“I don't know the rest but I know Brad, he is a fantastic player and fantastic person.

“He congratulated me after the game and obviously we wished each other luck for the rest of the season."
