Following their 1-0 win against Southampton last time out, Aston Villa will be looking to win consecutive Premier League home games for the first time since May/August 2021 (which included a 2-1 win against Chelsea), while they last did so in the same season back in January 2021. Villa is also unbeaten in their last four Premier League games (one win and three draws), their longest spell under Steven Gerrard, and longest overall since December 2020 (five unbeaten under Dean Smith).
However, the Villans have only won two of their last 13 league matches (five draws and six losses), and just one of their last seven (three draws and three losses). On top of that only Wolves (3) have scored fewer league goals than Villa (7) this season. Villa is averaging 10.9 shots per match in the competition this term; from the 2003/04 season, only in 2015/16 (10.0) have they averaged fewer shots per game over a season in the division, a campaign which saw them finish bottom.
Chelsea has won their last three Premier League games, having won just two of their first five this season. The Blues are looking to record consecutive league clean sheets for the first time since March. No team in the Premier League this season have had more different goalscorers than Chelsea (10), with Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja netting their first goals of the campaign against Wolves last time out. Raheem Sterling has currently scored 49 Premier League goals away from home (8 for Liverpool, 40 for Man City, and 1 for Chelsea), with his next strike being his 50th. Should he score, at 27 years and 312 days, he’ll be the fourth youngest to that landmark in the competition’s history after Michael Owen (23y 259d), Harry Kane (24y 148d) and Wayne Rooney (25y 69d).
Scoreline prediction: Aston Villa 0-2 Chelsea
