Chelsea vs Aston Villa: Lineups and LIVE Updates
Graham Potter's Chelsea return to Premier League action against Unai Emery's Aston Villa in a bid to put their season back on track and build some momentum.
Chelsea come into this game on the back of a 2-2 draw against Sean Dyche's Everton after going ahead twice in the game. The Blues have found a good run of results being unbeaten in their last four games in the league. Chelsea's home record this season isn't the best, with the blues winning just six of their 13 games at home this season.
Emery's Aston Villa won their previous game against Bournemouth with a scoreline of 3-0 and come into this fixture on the back of a four game unbeaten streak themselves. Emery has revitalized the Villains with only Arsenal and Manchester City picking up more points than them in 2023.
