Reason for Chelsea vs Aston Villa Predictions
Chelsea continued with their fine run in the season with a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur and will be eyeing another win when they take on Aston Villa in the League Cup on Wednesday. The Blues are still unbeaten in the season, winning five and drawing two of the seven games played, and they’ve scored in all the seven matches, on four occasions scoring two or more. This will be the second time they host Villa this season, and they head here with three straight clean sheets and four in five matches. Chelsea has scored seven goals in the last three games, and only one of those goals has come in the first half. Charly Musonda Jr. (Knee Injury) and N’Golo Kanté (Groin Injury) won’t be playing for Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. He should build up on his last season’s performance.
This weekend, Aston Villa returned to winning ways, beating Everton 3-0 to recover from their own 3-0 loss to Chelsea in the earlier game. That was Villa’s third clean sheet in five matches, and the fourth time in six, they scored two or more goals. This season they’ve only failed to score in one game – against Chelsea, while four of their six matches have produced over 2.5 goals. Away from home, they have three losses in the last five matches and only one clean sheet in nine, and to change that, they’ll do with a lot of improvement here. Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has to contend with reduced team options. Keinan Davis (Knee Injury) and Trezeguet also (Knee Injury) won’t be making appearances. Anwar El-Ghazi is a great player, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Ollie Watkins is a great striker, and he scored 14 goals last season. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Chelsea is the favorite in this match, and a month ago, Thomas Tuchel’s team outplayed Villa in the Premier League with 3:0.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. This clash should be a real treat for all football fans.
