Chelsea host Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Sunday looking for their second Premier League victory this season. Mauricio Pochettino’s men have five points from five games so far while Unai Emery’s side arrive in London with nine points from a possible 15 and hopeful of moving to within touching distance of the European places.
Chelsea are off to another slow start after last campaign’s disappointment and have only beaten lowly Luton Town this term and already lost to West Ham United and Nottingham Forest. Villa, on the other hand, are in Europe and lost to Legia Warsaw in their UEFA Europa Conference League opener this past midweek on top of defeats to Newcastle United and Liverpool.
However, the Villans have already beaten Everton, Burnley and Crystal Palace in the Premier League with the Toffees also coming up in the EFL Cup next week before a clash with Chelsea and Hove Albion — Chelsea’s next League Cup opponents. Emery’s Villa won 2-0 at Stamford Bridge back in April so will be looking to repeat a similar feat.
