Aston Villa vs Chelsea Match Preview and Team News

Aston Villa

Aston Villa’s schedule was disrupted by the postponement of their game against Burnley, but they will be back in action on Boxing Day, hosting Chelsea in the Premier League. Villa will go to this game placed 10th with 22 points from 17 matches while Chelsea is third with 38 points, having played a game more. Aston Villa’s last game was on the 14th, and going to this one, they’ll have had a 12-day rest. That should lift their hopes of bagging three points from this game, and Steven Gerrard has done well since his appointment. In six matches, he’s only lost to the top two sides and will hope it doesn’t follow the trend as he meets the third-placed side. In the last five matches, Villa has trailed at halftime in just one against Manchester City. Ollie Watkins is a great striker, and he scored 14 goals last season. Leon Bailey is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.


Chelsea has lost their fluidity and some of the solidity in defense that they had in the earlier stages of the season. This will be their third meeting with Villa this season, and after a win and a draw, Thomas Tuchel knows this will be tough. In the first two meetings, Villa was under Dean Smith and is now a better side. While Chelsea is unbeaten in their last five matches, they have been very shaky. They are coming from a 2-0 win over Brentford, but it took an own goal in the 80th minute for the Blues to take the lead in the Carabao Cup clash. They then sealed it in the 85th minute with a Jorginho penalty. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. He should build upon his last season’s performance. N’Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
