Aston Villa vs Chelsea odds
*Odds correct as of 07:00 on February 7
These two sides couldn’t be separated in the first game, so it’s off to Villa Park with a spot against either Leeds or Plymouth. The initial match came during a rocky patch for Villa, that saw them go three games across all competitions without victory. They were certainly looking more vulnerable than previously and needed a late goal to scrape past Middlesbrough in the third round of the FA Cup. Last week, they also saw their long home unbeaten record in the Premier League broken with a 3-1 defeat to Newcastle. They did, however, bounce back to thrash Sheffield United at the weekend.
Chelsea, meanwhile, looks to be getting worse after their bright spell. Cups appear to be the only way back into Europe for the Blues, and they will have wanted to avoid a trip to Villa Park. The draw against Aston Villa in the initial match came at the end of a run that had seen Chelsea win five in six, only falling in a 1-0 defeat to Middlesbrough in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final (winning the second leg 6-1). But since then, Chelsea have been poor. The Blues lost 4-1 to Liverpool and then 4-2 against Wolves, piling the pressure on Mauricio Pochettino.
