Aston Villa vs Chelsea Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Sunday, 21 June 2020. Kick-off 16:15 UK/ 17:15 CET at the Villa Park (Birmingham).
Aston Villa has stooped down to be a strong candidate for relegation this season and is likely to return to the lower tier soon after getting promoted this season. The Blues are on a pleasant run lately in the campaign and will be the favorites in the clash at Villa Park.
Since February this year, Aston Villa is on a losing streak in the campaign for consecutive four games and the trend finally ended in their previous clash in the league when they shared the spoils at home with Sheffield United in a goalless match.
The host hasn’t scored a goal in their recent three matches in the campaign. And they are no different at home with just 5 wins out of 14 clashes so far in the league. Besides, they returned winless from their last three trips in the schedule across major competitions.
Chelsea is unbeaten in their last three matches, following a 4-0 win at home against Everton in their previous encounter on the back of which they will visit the Villa Park. If it was not for the loss to the Red Devils earlier, the Blues could have had a six-game unbeaten streak in the campaign.
Frank Lampard and his men are in the top three when it comes to points on the road. They are winless in the last four tours in their schedule, but three of them have ended in a draw. After toppling Arsenal at Emirates Stadium, the visitor has had no luck in their trips.
Having lost only 4 of their 14 away fixtures in the campaign until now, the Blues will have more chances to create opportunities at the Villa Park despite playing away from home. Expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair if players like Tammy Abraham and Giroud find their scoring legs.
Aston Villa vs Chelsea Head-to-head (h2h)

- The host has lost at home in their previous two meetings.
- The visitor has kept three clean sheets in the prior five fixtures.
Aston Villa vs Chelsea Prediction
Lampard’s men will be confident in visiting a relegation prone team and their recent dip in form on their away games will not probably affect their game post lockdown. Besides, the guests have been successful in their prior two visits to Villa Park. With Aston suffering from a poor form even at home, the Blues will have a splendid chance in taking all three points from the game.
The home win in full-time will be the best bet in the encounter. At 1.50 odds, it will be a safe bet to yield decent returns for the punters. Since Lampard’s strikers are not so shy away from home with 29 goals so far in 14 appearances, the tip for over 2.5 goals will come in handy for the punters at 1.57 odds.
