Chelsea vs Aston Villa: Two mid-table teams in the Premier League lock horns as Chelsea host Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on April 1, 2023 at 17:30.

Chelsea is currently in 10th place on the Premier League table after a 2-2 draw with Everton. Aston Villa, on the other hand, are in 11th place after defeating Bournemouth 3-0.

They look to gain momentum or try to finish in the Europa League qualification spot ahead of next season.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa Preview

Graham Potter had in the last three previous matches in all competitions made Chelsea fans believe their football club is back.

However, their frustration grew in the last match after Everton came back to score two goals in the Premier League on Chelsea’s home soil.

After a 45-minute goalless draw, Chelsea grew strong in the second half. Joao Felix and Kai Havertz put Chelsea ahead on two different occasions.

Everton equalized after Abdoulaye Doucoure and a young striker, Ellis Simms, went through Kalidou Koulibaly and Kepa Arrizabalaga in the 89th minute.

The four-goal stalemate ended Chelsea’s winning streak in the last three matches. Chelsea have been in the same position on the Premier League table for the past three months.

The hope of getting a Champions League football is out of reach for Potter and his players. Also, the Europa League looks unrealistic for them. Inconsistency has been an issue that Potter has been trying hard to fight again.

Chelsea have only won three matches out of nine at home. Only 26 goals have been scored at Stamford Bridge this season.

Bournemouth got the best result against Liverpool and almost denied Arsenal all three points at the Emirates Stadium. However, Aston Villa got the best of them, with Unai Emery showing how good they are.

Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz scored the first goal in the 7th minute. In the final minute of the match, Aston Villa scored two goals through Jacob Ramsey and Emiliano Buendia, which condemned Bournemouth further into the relegation zone.
