Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Aston Villa


Last time out, Chelsea lost to West Ham United in a home match they were heavily favored to win. The result on Saturday probably helped to save Manuel Pellegrini’s job, but it was an affair that really should have gone the way of the hosts.

They had twice as much possession as West Ham and 19 shots to the Hammers’ five but couldn’t convert and finish. It was the first time Chelsea ended up scoreless in a home league match under Frank Lampard. Now the Blues look to rebound from a disappointing London derby when they host lower table side Aston Villa on Wednesday night.

Again this will be a match that the Blues will be strongly tipped to take all three points. Let’s take a look at who Lampard may select in his first team in an effort to make that happen.
