Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction at Aston Villa FC


The big news in the Chelsea FC world today is of course the signing of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig. He becomes the first major acquisition for Stamford Bridge since they signed Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund in January 2019 and in the process made him the most expensive American footballer of all time.

It’s coincidental as this weekend will likely mark the first action for Pulisic since New Year’s Day. Out with a nasty adductor injury, even suffering a relapse in his rehabilitation, he’s been out of action for a long time. The long layoff caused by the coronavirus did him good though- as he’s fully fit and raring to go right now.

Let’s take a look at who else may join him in the first team on Sunday at Villa Park.

Chelsea Starting XI Prediction at Aston Villa (4-3-3):

Pulisic     Abraham    Willian

Kovacic       Kante     Mount

Alonso    Zouma      Rüdiger     Azpilicueta

In a weird season like this, having to play a league fixture off short rest will definitely strongly disadvantage AVFC here.
