Since the appointment of Unai Emery as Aston Villa manager in October 2022, the Villans have been a force to be reckoned with. The hosts recently progressed to the Conference League semi-finals with a penalty shootout win over Lille in France and have lost just one of their last ten Premier League outings so they’ll fancy their chances against a Chelsea side who have been unconvincing this season.

After being brushed aside by Arsenal in midweek, the Blues will be looking to bounce back and give their fans something to smile about but that’s easier said than done. Villa Park has been a fortress and they should be in for a very tough game.

H2H / Stats 

Recent Meetings

7/2/24: Villa 1-3 Chelsea

26/1/24: Chelsea 0-0 Villa

24/9/23: Chelsea 0-1 Villa

1/4/23: Chelsea 0-2 Villa

11/12/22: Villa 1-0 Chelsea

Team News 

Villa have no any new injuries apart from the usual suspects. Tyrone Mings has been out since the first matchday of the season with a cruciate ligament injury and the defender will be unavailable until at least June. Emiliano Buendía (cruciate ligament), Jacob Ramsey (toe), Boubacar Kamara (knee) and Álex Moreno (muscle) are the other names currently on the injury list for the hosts.

For Chelsea, Cole Palmer is still doubtful after missing his club’s game against Arsenal in midweek.  Wesley Fofana, Roméo Lavia, Reece James, Lesley Ugochukwu, Christopher Nkunku, Levi Colwill, Robert Sánchez, Malo Gusto and Ben Chilwell will all miss out.

Probable Line-Up

Aston Villa XI: Martínez (GK), Cash, Konsa, Torres, Digne, McGinn, Diaby, Tielemans, Bailey, Watkins, Rogers

Chelsea XI: Petrović (GK), Cucurella, Silva, Disasi, Gilchrist, Caicedo, Gallagher, Fernández, Palmer, Jackson, Madueke

Verdict 

Villa has been scoring goals for fun in their home games. They boast at least two goals in each of their last five home fixtures, but they always struggle in the final third when playing at home against Chelsea. They have scored under 1.5 goals in each of their last three home games against the Blues across all competitions but this should change on Saturday.
