Chelsea take on Aston Villa at the Stamford bridge after the international break on Saturday afternoon. 

Match Venue and Kick-Off Time

Chelsea will welcome Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Saturday by 17:30 West African Standard Time in what is expected to be a tightly contested London derby.

Match Preview

The Blues had return to winning ways after with three-consecutive wins in all the Premier League and Champions League after enduring a nightmare in February where they failed to win a single match.

But the Blues fell to a late minute goal against Everton in their last outing and will be looking to return to winning ways when they welcome Villa tomorrow.

They are currently sitting on tenth position on the table and in danger of missing out on a Champions League qualification next season, however a win could boost their chances of making the top four position.

Aston Villa have been in decent form, having avoided a loss in their last four matches (W3, D1, L0) and will be looking to build on that when they travel to the Bridge tomorrow.

They are currently on the same point with Chelsea but on eleventh position as a result of inferior goal difference, however, a win could see them climb up to ninth on the table.
