Chelsea v Aston Villa: GiveMeSport preview & prediction

Football News

First plays third in the pick of the 3pm kick-offs with Chelsea looking to continue their unbeaten run against a Villa side looking to get back on track after their defeat to Arsenal last week.

According to tomorrow’s game against Aston Villa will be the clubs 2000th home league fixture. The Blues have won 1065 of their league matches at Stamford bridge to date and a Chelsea win tomorrow would take their overall league points tally since 1905 to 5000.

In spite of such large numbers however, the two teams are very well matched having shared the 6 points evenly last season. Both clubs have met 137 times with Chelsea edging 54 wins over Villa's 51. While Chelsea has managed to score 212 goals Villa have also bagged 201 of their own so not much difference there.

With Ron Vlaar doubtful and the whole squad having been recently rocked by a virus, Paul Lambert is still aiming to get something out of the game as he mentioned in his pre-match press conference yesterday.

Chelsea’s attack will undoubtedly dominate this match with Diego Costa leading the line as he aims to improve upon his 7 goals in 5 league matches already. With Cesc Fabregas’ return to the premier league proving fruitful with 6 assists already we think Villa could be up against it and whilst this Chelsea defence can concede goals it might be too much for Villa to keep the Blues out. Our verdict 2-0 Chelsea.
