Aston Villa will host Chelsea on Sunday in matchday 30 of the Premier League action at the Villa Park in Birmingham.
Aston Villa's fight for Premier League survival is getting tougher as they drew their last league match after losing four matches in a row. Sitting at the 19th position, the struggling Aston Villa have recorded 26 points with only 7 wins, 5 draws and 17 losses. Coming into this match, Aston Villa was held to a stalemate by Sheffield United in their first game after league restart. Despite Aston Villa's 14 goal attempts, 14 free kicks, 12 corner kicks, and 6 shots on goal, Villa, unfortunately, could not produce a single goal.
On the other hand, Chelsea is looking to consolidate their top-four position as they visit Villa Park in their first game after league restart. The Frank Lampard's side is occupying the 4th position ahead of Manchester United, Arsenal, Wolves and Sheffield United. The Blues have recorded 14 wins, 6 draws, and 9 losses, and coming into this match, they recorded a 4-0 victory over Everton in March to increase their point to 48. In their last time out, Chelsea defeated Reading in the International Club Friendly match by a lone goal to nil.
Chelsea is looking to strengthen their hold in the final Champions League spot and have the best players to secure a three-point lead for the team. Tammy Abraham is back after suffering an injury and will lead the team's forward group alongside Mason Mount. Tammy is the team's highest goal scorer with 13 goals and 3 assists in 25 appearances. Mount has 6 goals and 4 assists in 29 league appearances.
Aston Villa's highest goal scorer, Jack Grealish, will lead the team's forward group alongside Mbwana Samatta. Grealish has recorded 7 goals and 6 assists in 27 league appearances.
In nine of their previous meetings, Chelsea won an impressive 8 matches by at least 2 goals. Aston Villa recorded their most humiliating defeat to Chelsea in 2012, suffering a woeful 8-0 loss to the Blues. Although the Blues have not played any league match since league restart, their highly experienced players are capable of holding Aston Villa back.
