Chelsea FC will be making the trip to Villa Park on Saturday for their eighth Premier League fixture against Aston Villa.
The blues are coming off of a colossal 2-0 victory over Arsenal last weekend and will be eager to extend their points tally. Although they’re eight points clear of Aston Villa, Manchester City are nipping at their heels with just four points separating the two sides.
Aston Villa are currently in eighth place with ten points, which means that these three points are extremely valuable to them and could boost morale significantly if obtained. Players to keep an eye on up front are John Carew and Emile Heskey.
This match is sure to be entertaining because although it is still fairly early in the season, this is when teams set the tone for what is to come. Success usually doesn’t happen overnight. It takes dedication, which Chelsea have been displaying ten-fold recently. Villa is capable of a win but will have to put it all on the table and be firing on all cylinders.
