Premier League betting tips: Aston Villa v Chelsea

Sunday afternoon sees a match with implications at both ends of the table as relegation battlers Aston Villa host Champions League qualification-chasers Chelsea.

Frank Lampard lost out to Dean Smith’s Aston Villa whilst in charge of Derby County in last season’s play-off final, but his Chelsea side came away with a relatively routine 2-1 win in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge earlier this season.

For Chelsea, Mateo Kovacic, Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek should all be available, having been sidelined when the season was suspended three months ago, but key midfielder N’Golo Kante is potentially a doubt, having reportedly sat out training due to health fears amid coronavirus.

With Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner set to arrive in the summer and bolster Lampard’s Blues squad, he’ll be keen to deliver Champions League football. Chelsea are currently three points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United and will hope to consolidate that position here.

Aston Villa, meanwhile, have spent the three months off suspended at second-bottom of the table and their run-in ought to be a battle against relegation. With their game in hand against Sheffield United out of the way in midweek, they’ll have a slight head start in terms of match rhythm on their opponents.

Coach Smith will be hoping that the time off has stunted any sense of their downward trajectory back in March, with four straight league defeats alongside the loss to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.

Key midfielder John McGinn’s return for Villa is a big boost, while talisman Jack Grealish (top scorer and assister with seven and six respectively) will continue to be paramount to their survival hopes.

We recommend backing Chelsea to get the win here, available at just 8/15. But with only six clean sheets kept all season, you can boost those odds by also backing both teams to score with the away win at 2/1.

    Chelsea strengthened their grip on the top four after a quickfire comeback gave them a 2-1 win at struggling Aston Villa.

    Two goals in as many second-half minutes from Christian Pulisic and Olivier Giroud boosted the Blues’ Champions League hopes.

    Frank Lampard’s men are now five points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United after making their return to action following the Premier League’s enforced break.

    Kortney Hause’s first Premier League goal had given Villa a first-half lead against the run of play.

    Dean Smith’s team avoided defeat against Sheffield United on Wednesday thanks to a technical glitch with the goal line cameras but they were well beaten on Sunday.

    Arrizabalaga denies El Ghazi and the home side have a precious lead!

    The loss kept them in the bottom three as they again missed a golden chance to boost their survival bid after relegation rivals Bournemouth and West Ham lost on Saturday.

    Despite taking the lead they were too passive and are staring at an immediate return to the Sky Bet Championship.

    Predictably, Chelsea dominated from the start as they looked for their first top flight away win since December.

    The visitors patiently probed with Villa happy to sit back but it took until the 21st minute for Chelsea to force Orjan Nyland into a save when he turned away Mason Mount’s drive.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek, making his first Premier League appearance for 13 months after an Achilles injury, eased back into action during a first half which was more like a training game of attack versus defence.

    N’Golo Kante was a force in the middle and afforded time to dictate the play while also shackling John McGinn.

    Nyland spilled Mateo Kovacic’s tame effort before Anwar El Ghazi finally showed a Villa threat, forcing Kepa Arrizabalaga to parry his low strike from 25 yards.

    But Chelsea continued to knock on the door and Loftus-Cheek was inches away from connecting with Mount’s low cross six minutes before half time.

    Ezri Konsa blocked from Marcos Alonso after a swift break and Willian curled wide with a breakthrough seeming inevitable.

    Yet it was Villa who went into the break ahead after stunning the Blues in the 43rd minute.

    Kovacic conceded a soft free-kick and it was worked to Douglas Luiz to cross for El Ghazi at the far post. The midfielder’s effort was well saved by Kepa but Hause scrambled in the rebound from six yards.

    Kovacic almost found an instant reply but his volley fizzed wide and while Chelsea bossed possession again after the break they needed an extra dimension.

    Tyrone Mings and Hause gobbled up any crosses and Lampard called for Pulisic and Ross Barkley within 10 minutes of the restart.

    It proved decisive as the Blues scored twice in 121 seconds to turn the game and reflect their dominance.

    Two goals in as many minutes from Pulisic and Giroud give them a 2-1 lead at Villa Park!

    First, Pulisic levelled just before the hour mark, firing in Cesar Azpilicueta’s deep cross from close range, before it got worse for Villa.

    Again Azpilicueta provided the assist, teeing up Giroud who was gifted too much space to turn and his effort took a deflection off Conor Hourihane before beating Nyland.

    Villa were stunned and all Chelsea needed to do was maintain their focus, with the hosts lacking confidence.

    Nyland tipped Willian’s drive over but Jota almost earned Villa a fortunate point when he fired wide with two minutes left.

    Christian Pulisic came off the bench to help #CFC come back from behind to beat #AVFC 2-1 at Villa Park.

    Chelsea substitute Christian Pulisic, who came on to grab the equaliser, told Sky Sports: “I’m glad I could come on and help the team.

    “The manager just said go on and help us win the game, to use my talent and show what I could do. I didn’t hit it perfectly but I got it on target.

    “It’s very different with no fans. But I’m happy we got a good result.”
