Chelsea are living up to their status as Man City biggest threat so far this season, following up comfortable wins over Crystal Palace (3-0) and Arsenal (2-0) with a 1-all draw against Liverpool. 

The Blues looked on track for a valuable win at Anfield after Kai Havertz opened the scoring, before being forced to hang on with 10 men following Reece James’ contentious red card.

Thomas Tuchel is hopeful of having Romelu Lukaku on deck, despite the striker picking up an injury on international duty.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa have multiple issues ahead of this daunting road trip with Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia unavailable and Jaden Philogene-Bidace in doubt. It’s been a mixed start to the season for Villa, following up a disappointing 3-2 loss at Watford with a handy 2-0 win over Newcastle and a 1-all draw against new chums Brentford at home. Danny Ings has two goals already for his new club.

Aston Villa earned bragging rights over Chelsea last season. After snapping a six-match losing streak in the rivalry with a 1-all draw at Stamford Bridge, Villa shocked Chelsea 2-1 at home. But they are aiming for their first victory at Stamford Bridge in a decade.

Verdict

Chelsea have kept eight clean sheets in their last 10 Premier League games at Stamford Bridge and look the goods to hold under-strength Villa scoreless.
