Chelsea are set to return to winning ways when they face Aston Villa in an English Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are in the top four race and should ease past Aston Villa at home.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea are coming off a shock 1-0 defeat against West Ham last Saturday. The Blues were much changed and failied to make any of their six attempts on target and 2.73 expected goals count. 

It was the second straight defeat for Chelsea who were also beaten by champions Manchester City in their previous fixture. They remain one of the form teams in the Premier League though with six wins in their last eight matches. 

Frank Lampard’s men have also won three of their last four matches at Stamford Bridge and will be desperate for a win to fend off a rejuvenated Spurs in the top four race. Christian Pulisic has been pivotal for Chelsea in recent weeks, scoring five goals in his last four Premier League matches.

Chelsea News


Top scorer Tammy Abraham remains a major doubt for Chelsea after missing the West Ham defeat with a hip injury. Olivier Giroud led the line on Saturday but could make way for Michy Batshuayi while Willian and N’golo Kante are set to return to the starting lineup having come off the bench last time out.

Aston Villa Form


Aston Villa played out a 2-2 draw at Manchester United in their previous Premier League fixture. Their goals came from Jack Grealish and Tyrone Mings as they scored off three attempts on target and 1.30 expected goals. 

The Villans have struggled to find consistency this season and have been particularly poor on the road. Dean Smith’s men have claimed just one away win this season, suffering five defeats in that run.

Villa often look lively in attack but are constantly let down by poor defending. They lost 2-1 to Midlands rivals Wolves and also conceded three goals in defeats to Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester City.

Aston Villa News


Aston Villa are likely to be without winger Anwar El-Ghazi who was replaced by Trezeguet early in the first half at Old Trafford. Bjorn Engels and Jota Peleteiro are both available for selection having returned from injury lay offs.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa Head to Head


Chelsea have a 58-51 advantage with 32 draws from 141 previous matches against Aston Villa. The Blues have also won the last four meetings, including a 4-0 victory at Villa Park during the 2015-16 season with Pedro netting a brace.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa Betting Odds


Chelsea are short priced at 1.28 for the win while Aston Villa are valued at 10.00 with a draw offered at odds of 5.75 on bet365. Eight of the last 10 meetings have produced over 2.5 goals and that outcome is paying 1.40 on Wednesday while BTTS is backed at 1.75.

Having claimed a 4-0 victory the last time they faced Aston Villa, Chelsea are backed at 1.80 in the -1 handicap market. Christian Pulisic should carry the attacking threat for the Blues and the American is priced at 7.00 to score the first goal.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa Match Up


Christian Pulisic has been arguably Chelsea’s best player in recent weeks and will be the one to watch on Wednesday in the absence of Tammy Abraham. He has five goals in his last four Premier League matches and alongside Willian and Michy Batshuayi should cause the Villans plenty of problems.

Aston Villa’s defence is likely to let them down as they have kept just two clean sheets in the Premier League this season. They should struggle against the pace and movement in the Chelsea forward line.
