27/04: Daily Predictions: Aston Villa vs Chelsea

Betting Tips

After recent back-to-back victories, Aston Villa will be looking to make it three straight league victories when they host ninth-place Chelsea at Villa Park on Saturday night.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will be desperate to avoid suffering a third loss in all competitions after falling to Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinal. This was followed by a crushing 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal on Tuesday night. Chelsea has to respond quickly as they make the difficult journey to Aston Villa.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea

When demoralized Chelsea comes visiting, Aston Villa will be confident of gaining another three crucial points since they are so close to finishing in the top four of the Premier League despite all odds.

Few predicted Villa to challenge for a Champions League spot this season, even though they closed the previous campaign strongly under Unai Emery. However, they now hold fourth position and are favorites to defeat Tottenham Hotspur’s bid.

Spurs still have two games to catch up to Emery’s six-point deficit, but their final stretch is extremely difficult because they still have games against all three of the title contenders.

Liverpool, the only team in the top eight that Aston Villa still has to play, will visit next month. However, there is a chance that their focus will be diverted by a potential run for the Europa Conference League championship.

Emery will need to strike a balance to keep his team fresh for the fight on two fronts because this matchup with Chelsea comes before a trip from Olympiacos in the semifinals. The good news is that Chelsea’s season is all but finished, and Mauricio Pochettino’s team is in ruins following their 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal midweek.

Recent Head-to-Head

This Premier League season, Aston Villa defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea exacted revenge in the FA Cup, winning 3-1 in a replay in the Midlands following a goalless draw away from home. The Blues have won their last three trips to Villa Park, giving them a strong recent record there.

Verdict

Aston Villa has strengthened their grasp on fourth place in the Premier League, despite having played two more games than Tottenham heading into the weekend.

Unai Emery’s team’s confidence has skyrocketed after back-to-back league victories over Arsenal and Bournemouth and a thrilling victory over Lille on penalties in the Europa Conference League quarterfinal. Additionally, Villa has scored 43 goals in 12 of its 17 league games this season on their home field, demonstrating the importance of home performances.

Their recent excursions to the Emirates Stadium demonstrate how different these two teams are from one another.

While Chelsea was humiliated by Arsenal in the middle of the week, Villa silenced Mikel Arteta’s team and emerged victorious 2-0, thanks to goals from Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins in the closing moments. Goals should flow as well, as Villa have scored at least twice in four of their past five Premier League games. A Villa victory appears incredibly overpriced.
