Both teams need a win for very different reasons as Aston Villa are battling against relegation and Chelsea are in the top four but face a big challenge to qualify for the UEFA Champions League as plenty of teams are knocking on the door. Frank Lampard’s side were in a slump before the suspension and so too were Villa, so maybe the break came at the right time for them. We will have to wait and see.

PREDICTION

This may be a little closer than most people think but Chelsea are primed to have plenty of chances. Let’s see if Frank Lampard’s side take them as they aim to boost their top four hopes with the likes of Wolves and Man United lurking just below them in the table. Chelsea have plenty of options on the bench but Villa showed they can hang in there against Sheffield United and if Jack Grealish pops up in dangerous areas, he can create holes in this leaky Chelsea defense. An intriguing clash which Chelsea should win but we know this young side has slipped up more than a few times so far this season.
