Recent respective form guides
Aston Villa's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Villans have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.
Chelsea's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Blues have hit 5 goals, 8 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Aston Villa find themselves struggling down in 15th position in the league having picked up 33 points from their 29 matches.
Chelsea's total of 50 points from their 30 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Barclays Premier League.
