Chelsea have not lost in their last three games in the English Premier League and they want to extend that after their visit to Aston Villa on Sunday.

The Blues posted consecutive draws against Everton (1-1) and Wolverhampton (0-0) in their last two league games to stay in third place with 38 points from 18 games.

Chelsea are coming off a 2-0 triumph over Brentford in the EFL Cup (Carabao Cup) quarter-final on Wednesday. They benefited from an own goal before Jorginho fired home a penalty five minutes from time to seal their victory.

There is a possibility that Romelu Lukaku and Callum Hudson-Odoi will return here after they were sidelined by Covid-19. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Andreas Christensen may also feature.

Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Ben Chilwell are not expected to play here due to Covid-19 while Hakim Ziyech is still injured.

Aston Villa recorded a 2-0 win over Norwich City in their last game. Jacob Ramsey and Ollie Watkins gave the Villans their fourth win in their last six games to stay in 10th place with 22 points from 17 games.

Anwar El Ghazi, Morgan Sanson, Emiliano Buendia, Ashley Young and Keinan Davis are all doubtful for Steven Gerrard’s side.

Marvelous Nakamba, Bertrand Traore and Leon Bailey remain absent while Jed Steer's condition will be examined before the match.

Chelsea beat Aston Villa 3-0 in their first duel of the season. Lukaku scored twice while Mateo Kovacic added a goal. The two sides met again in the Carabao Cup where the Blues won via penalty shoot-out.

Verdict

We expect this match between Aston Villa and Chelsea to result in a draw.
