Aston Villa vs Chelsea
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 14 March 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).
The Blues are hell-bent on qualifying for the Champions League next season, and they showed their intention with a huge win the last match-day. Meanwhile, counterparts Villans are placed in the bottom-most tier, and are a major contender to get relegated. Likely, expect a win for Chelsea this Saturday.
Aston Villa vs Chelsea Match Preview
The Villans lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Leicester. It was their fifth loss in a row, a streak which saw them concede two or more goals in all five games.
This current run is an ample justification for their placement in the relegation zone. At present, the team has managed a total of 25 points from their 28 fixtures, and they need to battle it out with the likes of West Ham, Watford, Bournemouth etc to avoid getting the boot.
Elsewhere, the Blues delivered a 4-0 win at home over Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton and prior to that, since eliminating the seemingly unbeatable Liverpool from the FA Cup, Lampard’s men really have been in the mood.
The back-to-back wins against two tough teams have raised the confidence level of the players, and they are now ready to make a push for the third spot in the league table.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea Prediction
The Villans are one of the worst teams in the competition at the moment, and are placed deep in the relegation zone. On top of that, they are a recently promoted team, and have conceded the most number of goals in the whole competition this season.
In addition, the Villans are on a five-game losing run, and were winless in 15 of their 20 match-ups. On the other hand, the Blues have been one of the best teams in the league the past two decades, and this time around too they are placed in the top-most tier.
Lampard’s men have also secured a combined scoreline of 6-0 from their past two games, and these fixtures were against Liverpool, and Everton. On top of that, the Blues are on a five-match winning run against this opponent, and had won nine of the past ten such fixtures as well.
Furthermore, the Villans had lost four of the last five h2h meetings here, and conceded a total of four goals the latest time these two clashed at this ground.
Taking these observations into account, it’s deduced that Chelsea are on course to deliver a huge win this weekend.
