Chelsea to win the game

Thomas Tuchel continues to make Chelsea even better with every game. The European champions struggled in the first half against Tottenham but the changes made by the manager made a real impact in the second half. Aston Villa have also been playing quite well in recent weeks and the team certainly did not deserve the heavy 3-0 loss to Chelsea only a few weeks ago. This will be a much closer game with Chelsea expected to rest players.

Total goals under 2.5

The last four matches involving Aston Villa has produced more than 2.5 goals on a remarkable three occasions. This includes the 6-0 win over Barrow in the previous round. Romelu Lukaku is expected to be rested for Chelsea and his replacement, Timo Werner, continues to be low on confidence.

Both teams to score – yes

Chelsea have kept three consecutive clean sheets in all competitions. In fact, Liverpool are the only team to have scored past the blues so far this season. This is quite a remarkable achievement considering the calibre of opposition that Chelsea have faced, while the blues have also maintained such a record for a long time.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa: A repeat of the weekend’s result?

Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel continues to work wonders and Chelsea are goig with strength to strength. The weekend’s result against Tottenham has sent a strong message about Chelsea’s title credentials. The club are now looking to put behind their recent disappointment of not winning this competition since the 2014-15 final.

Aston Villa

Villa may have registered one win in the last three matches, but Dean Smith might be targeting a victory from this encounter to further enhance Villa’s form in the league games. Smith has a lengthy injury list with Trezeguet and Keinan Davis out injured. Leon Bailey, John McGinn, Mathew Cash, and Matt Target are rated as doubts for the game.
