Chelsea vs Aston Villa Match Preview
Chelsea are experiencing a wobble with only one win in their last five matches, but are expected to get back on track when they host Aston Villa.
Despite the indifferent run, there was no cause for alarm in the Blues’ camp until Saturday when they lost 1-0 at home to a West Ham side that had been struggling much more than them of late.
Tammy Abraham was missing with a hip injury sustained in the Champions League draw against Valencia but Chelsea’s top scorer this season could return for this game, while Cesar Azpilicueta, Willian and N’Golo Kante were rested to varying degrees at the weekend.
If those players are back in the starting line-up it would surely be a boost to the chances of Frank Lampard’s side against a Villa team who had a particularly strong first half in their fine 2-2 draw at Manchester United on Sunday.
Jack Grealish and John McGinn again shone in midfield for Villa, but the worry is that they have only collected four points from a possible 21 on their travels this season.
Villa do score goals on the road, however, so a clean sheet may elude Chelsea even though the side clear in fourth position in the table are backed to return to winning ways.
