Aston Villa vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Chelsea will look to cement their Champions League spot when they travel to relegation threatened Aston Villa on Sunday.

Villa played out a drab goalless draw at home to Sheffield United on Wednesday, a fixture that will be memorable for a huge hawyeke error.

Oliver Norwood’s free-kick clearly crossed the line, however the technology was down and Sheffield United missed out on two points.

Chelsea currently occupy the final Champions League spot having thrashed Everton 4-0 prior the break.

Since then they have completed the signing of RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner for £50million.
