Chelsea v Aston Villa Match Prediction - Preview
Chelsea is now seated 4th at the table in the Premier League. They drew their most recent encounter against Liverpool, 1-1, when they visited Anfield. Kai Havertz headed in Reece James’ corner on 22 minutes to give the Blues the lead. However, during first half stoppage, James was given a red card when he challenged Sadio Mane’s close-range shot. Mohamed Salah converted the resulting penalty to level the score going into half time. Despite a one-man disadvantage, Chelsea were able to prevent the Reds from capitalising and taking the lead in the league table. Manager Thomas Tuchel hailed his team’s performance, most notably defender Andreas Christensen who stepped up after James was sent off. They will face another challenge in the next match with Villa, however, with James, Havertz, Ngolo Kante and Romelu Lukaku being unavailable.
- If Chelsea win this match, they become only the 2nd club to reach 600 EPL victories after Manchester United (689).
- The Blues have only lost one of their 16 home league games against Aston Villa (W11 D4), falling 1-3 in December 2011.
Aston Villa FC
Aston Villa ended the first three games of the season just outside of the top half of the table. They picked up a 1-1 draw against newly-promoted Brentford in their last outing at Villa Park. Ivan Toney opened the scoring early for the Bees in the 7th minute. It didn’t take long for the Villans to equalise, as Danny Ings completed the pass to Emiliano Buendia, who in turn scored just outside the penalty area. Ollie Watkins almost gave the home side the win twice in stoppage time, but David Raya was there to make the save. Manager Dean Smith was still satisfied with earning a point after the draw. However, he will face a problem, as Argentinians Buendia and Emiliano Martinez will be unavailable the next match due to failure to comply with COVID-19 protocols during their World Cup qualifying matches.
- Aston Villa won their final EPL meeting with Chelsea, 2-1. They have not won consecutive league matches against them since October 1993 under Ron Atkinson.
- The Villans have won 3 of their 6 EPL games in London last season (D1 L2), which is as many as they have in ther previous 29 top-flight games in the city (W3 D4 L22).
