Aston Villa vs Chelsea Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Villa find themselves one point from safety with a tough schedule to end the season. The picture is far rosier for Chelsea who are in a strong position to qualify for a Champions League spot with some favourable fixtures still to come.

 

Aston Villa FC Form

Aston Villa haven’t won in five, leaving them in 19th place. They’ve won just once against the top 11 teams, a 2-1 win over Burnley on new year’s day.

Villa put up a good fight against Sheffield United on Wednesday. They were well worth the eventual point, despite a calamitous goal-line tech error in their favour.

Nevertheless, their failure to score continues a season-long trend that has seen them score just 34 goals in 29 games. It may be a better tally than eight other teams but barely exceeds a goal a game and is especially poor against the league’s best sides.

 

Aston Villa Team News

Tom Heaton and Wesley will likely miss the rest of the season. The rest of the first team should be available for selection.

 

Chelsea FC Form

Chelsea get back underway with a trip to Villa Park where they can strengthen their grip on a Champions League spot.  The Blues had lost just two of the last ten heading into lockdown. A run of three unbeaten featuring wins against Tottenham and Everton were particularly promising for Chelsea fans.

Lampard’s side have had mixed fortunes against bottom-half teams this season. Their record is a rather uninspiring 8W-2D-5L. A 2-1 win over Aston Villa the last time these two met will give Chelsea some level of reassurance.

Plenty of goals have been scored across Chelsea’s season. Only three clubs have registered more goals for, whilst the Blues’ defence has room for improvement with seven sides have conceded fewer.

Jorginho will miss the trip to Villa through suspension. The rest of the squad should be fit for selection.

 

Aston Villa vs Chelsea Head to Head

Chelsea have edged the overall record, winning 63, drawing 34 and losing 57 games against Aston Villa. The Blues have only lost one of their last ten encounters, with wins in each of the last five.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea Prediction

Aston Villa have really struggled to pick up points against top sides this season and it’s likely to be a similar story come Sunday. Chelsea have had key players recover from injury and will be fresher than Villa.

Tammy Abraham scored against his former side in his last encounter and will be a big threat should he get the node to start.

 

Aston Villa vs Chelsea Stats

  • Aston Villa have not beaten a top-9 side this season
  • Villa have conceded 23 league goals in seven games against the current top five
  • Chelsea have scored 51 goals in 29 league games

 

Aston Villa vs Chelsea Betting Tips

Chelsea should come out on top having had plenty of time to prepare for this game. Their most recent games have consistently seen a flurry of goals, a trend likely to continue here.

Best Bet: Over 3.5 Goals – 6/4 at bet365.

Correct Score Tip: Chelsea to Win 3-1 – 12/1 at bet365.
