I was reading this article in the Guardian about Jeffrey Bruma on his debut and the injury time equaliser Villa scored and it got me thinking. The title of the article is "Bruma refuses to take the blame for Chelsea's late collapse" and I have to admit I wondered straight away "Why would he?".

As I have said in my match report after the game it was in fact Lampard's man and then Ashley Cole, rather than react to the run, stood there with his arm up hoping for offside. So if anything these two were to blame not Bruma.

Bruma spoke of the game and said:
"Everyone knows Premier League games are always fast, quick, strong, so if we don't play our game then they will play their game and you will see that they will dominate us. It can happen. At the end, we were dominating them again and then you saw that we scored a goal. After, I think we should've kept the ball and been strong in the marking because the guy from Villa had a free header.

I was marking my man. I think everyone else was, or maybe someone forgot to mark his one."
I personally thought that apart from the Heskey goal, Bruma had a good game. He looked composed and comfortable and played well. OK, for the goal he got caught out by Heskey but couldn't really do anything else. If anything Cech should have come out and grabbed the ball but remained stuck on his line.

If Bruma can play like he did against Heskey for 90 minutes then I have every confidence we can stick him in when needed.
