Aston Villa vs Chelsea FC: place for top 4
Aston Villa vs Chelsea: match preview
“Chelsea” will resume the championship for itself with an extremely difficult trip within the capital of Great Britain. The main difficulty for the “blue” is that they will have to go to visit a motivated outsider, “Aston Villa”. The team from Birmingham takes the penultimate line in the standings. But unlike “Norwich” (21 points), which has already lost the chances of maintaining a residence permit, Dean Smith’s team has little opportunity to grab the coveted ticket even despite the difficult schedule. “Villa” still have matches with “Liverpool”, “Manchester United” and “Arsenal”. This is not the most pleasant company in terms of scoring. The density at the bottom of the Premier League is extremely intriguing: Aston Villa, with 26 points behind the “Bournemouth”, “Watford” and “West Ham United”, is only one credit point.
Aston Villa team news:
Shortly before the quarantine pause, the Villans delighted their fans with the passage to the League Cup finals (“City” beat the opponent, 1:2). The results of the matches of the championship of England – a disaster. The team’s top scorer (7 goals). Its leader Jack Grealish, apparently, are not able to drag the team higher – it can be clearly seen that Aston Villa lacks reliability in defense, because the team misses the most in the Premier League (56 goals after 29 rounds).
Probable lineup: Reina; Guilbert, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Nakamba, Luiz; El Ghazi, Hourihane, Grealish; Samatta
Chelsea team news:
Have you learned to count money at Stamford Bridge? The work of “Chelsea” management this year in the transfer market is delightful. “Blue” for a small by today’s standards money turned two top transfers, signing Hakim Ziyesh from “Ajax” and Timo Werner from “Leipzig”. At the same time, almost two-thirds of the money spent will be covered by the sale of Alvaro Morata to “Atletico Madrid”. Brilliant deals!
It turns out that for the next season a very interesting company is being selected at “Chelsea”. They will be able to challenge “Liverpool” and “Manchester City” in the championship race. But it is too early for the “Blue” to think about the future – Frank Lampard’s team will have to focus on winning a ticket to the Champions League. Now for “Chelsea” everything was going well. Londoners quarantined, being in fourth position in the standings.
However, the gap from the pursuers is small. The next nine matches will be a good test of Frank Lampard’s coaching skills. And if the “Chelsea” coach still manages to keep the team in the Champions League zone – this can be considered almost a feat. Indeed, before the season of “blue”, no one seriously considered as a contender for access to the most prestigious club tournament in Europe. In view of the circumstances (Hazard’s departure, transfer ban, youth bet)
Probable lineup: Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger, Alonso; Barkley, Gilmour, Mount; Willian, Giroud, Pedro
