THE TEAM NEWS

CHELSEA

  • Chelsea slipped to back-to-back league defeats at the weekend for the first time under Frank Lampard as they lost 0-1 at home to West Ham.
  • The quick turnaround in matches will encourage Lampard to rotate for this game as Kante, Azpilicueta and Willian could return to the side.
  • Injured topscorer Abraham missed the loss at the weekend but he is desperate to return to face the club he spent last season on loan with.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Tomori, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho; Willian, Mount, Pulisic; Abraham

Unavailable: Van Ginkel (Injured), Loftus-Cheek (Injured), Rudiger (Injured)

Doubtful: Barkley (Injured), Abraham (Injured)

ASTON VILLA

  • Aston Villa come off an excellent 2-2 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday and they will not be daunted by this trip to Stamford Bridge right now.
  • Boss Dean Smith is forced into at least one change as Guilbert is suspended so Elmohamady will come in for the Frenchman at right-back.
  • El Ghazi had to come off injured in the first half on Sunday so Trezeguet is the natural replacement on the right of the attacking trio.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Heaton; Elmohamady, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Hourihane, McGinn, Douglas Luiz; Trezeguet, Wesley, Grealish

Unavailable: Steer (Injured), Davis (Injured), Jota (Injured), Guilbert (Suspended)

Doubtful: El Ghazi (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Villa have picked up four points from their last two matches against Newcastle and Man Utd so confidence will be high. They face a Chelsea side who have lost back-to-back league matches but are accustomed to playing a busy schedule and should be able to bounce back to winning ways here.
