Aston Villa vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting tips
The ball is rolling again in the Premier League! After there were already catch-up games during the week in which Aston Villa was already involved, the first regular game day is now increasing. And before the game Aston Villa vs. Chelsea’s betting odds show a clear trend: the guest from London is the favorite!
On the one hand, this can be seen in the table of the Premier League, on the other hand, this is manifested by a look at the squad of both teams. And: Aston Villa does not have a big advantage in that the team started earlier. Because the 0-0 against Sheffield was one thing above all: dreary.
While the guests are still fighting for the Champions League, the host from Birmingham has completely different problems before the game on Sunday afternoon. The relegation from the Premier League to the second-class championship should be avoided. Hopeful Jack Grealish is facing a lot of pressure and will be the center of attention again against Chelsea.
The remaining season for the Premier League started on Wednesday for Aston Villa. They beat their teeth against Sheffield United, one of the best defensive lines in England. At 0-0 Aston Villa did a good job defensively and seemed very stable over long stretches. Attacking, however, was lacking in punch.
And that runs like a red thread through the season at the penultimate table. If top star Jack Grealish, who is being wooed by Manchester United, doesn’t work, the whole offensive will be paralyzed. 34 goals in 29 games is at best a solid value, with 56 goals conceded, which is the worst record in the Premier League.
Too often, despite good approaches, it is not possible to win the game. Therefore before the game Aston Villa vs. Chelsea our prediction that the guests will win the game.
The starting position for the penultimate of the Premier League is of course not completely hopeless. Nobody knows at what level Chelsea is currently and on good days Aston Villa can at least cause problems for every club.
A look at the table shows the difficult initial situation. Aston Villa is in 19th place with 26 points. The gap to 15th is only three points, but the host also has a very weak goal difference of -22. Only Norwich (20th) is worse.
A look at the rest of the program also showed how important points are for Aston Villa. You still have to deal with Everton, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Wolverhampton, which does not make things easier for the Birmingham club.
After all, Aston Villa’s home record is encouraging. Five of the seven victories were achieved at home, with an average of 1.29 points. But the ghost games create a different dynamic, for example in the Bundesliga there is a trend towards more away wins.
The situation remains relaxed in terms of personnel. Apart from striker Wesley, who is still in training, Dean Smith can draw on the full. Jack Grealish, top scorer with seven goals and six assists, will play a good role again and will be involved in almost every attack.
Chelsea can be found in completely different table regions. The blues are in fourth place after 29 matchdays and naturally want to go to the Champions League. Fifth place may also be enough. Frank Manchester does not want to rely on Manchester City being threatened with the exclusion from the UEFA competitions.
Before the game Aston Villa vs. Chelsea’s odds indicate that the blues are going to be the clear favorite in this game. And not without reason, because the team is playing a good season overall. More tips on the Premier League can be found on a betting basis.
Before the break in the Premier League, the last games of the blues were mixed. Against Leicester City and Bournemouth one played draws, Tottenham and Everton could be defeated, against Manchester United the team lost. In addition, the 0-3 defeat at home against FC Bayern in the Champions League fell at this time
Maybe the break of the young, dynamic and wild team was good. Players like Mount, Tomori or Abraham could catch their breath and prepare for the last weeks of the season.
With the exception of Manchester City and Liverpool, the rest of the program for Chelsea actually has only feasible tasks in unison. But there is also the danger here, sometimes the blues were a bit shaky in the role of favorites, and they blundered unnecessarily. That shouldn’t happen in the last weeks of the season because the competition doesn’t sleep.
Manchester United is lurking three points behind, Sheffield (four points) and Wolverhampton (five points) are still hoping for the premier class. Every point is important for Chelsea and starting the remaining season with a positive result would also help the team enormously in terms of self-confidence.
Apart from the long-term injured Marco van Ginkel, it looks very good for the blues in terms of personal details. No other player is injured, so Frank Lampard is spoiled for choice. However: The Spaniard Pedro Rodriguez, free transfer in the summer, will no longer appear for Chelsea and will change clubs on July 1.
