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.
