Chelsea vs Aston Villa: prediction for the English Premier League fixture
Last season,Chelseafinished in the Top 4. They scored 67 points in 38 rounds (19 victories and 10 draws). The team conceded less than one goal per match on average, which was one of the best defensive performances in the league.
The main triumph of Chelsea in the last football year was the victory in the Champions League. The Blues defeated Manchester City in the final. Chelsea also won the UEFA Super Cup at the start of the new season, defeating Villarreal in a penalty shootout.
The biggest transfer for Chelsea was the signing of Romelu Lukaku, who cost the club 115 million.
At the start of the new Premier League season, Chelsea celebrated victories over Crystal Palace (3:0) and Arsenal (2:0), and in the third round, they drew with Liverpool (1:1).
James is disqualified following his red card against Liverpool. Pulisic, Lukaku, Kante, and Silva are a doubt.
Few teams managed to defeat Chelsea last season, but Aston Villabeat the Blues in one of the last rounds. The seven-time Premier League champion chalked up 16 wins and 7 draws, finishing in 11th place with 55 points. In the summer, Aston Villa sold Jack Grealish for a fantastic sum of 117.5 million.
That money allowed the Villans to strengthen their squad with Emi Buendiafrom Norwich (38.4 million), Danny Ings from Southampton (35.2 million), and Leon Bailey from Bayer (32 million).
Dean Smith's men started the new season with a defeat from Watford (2:3), followed by a win over Newcastle (2:0), and a draw with Brentford (1:1).
Aston Villa have serious losses in their squad: Traore, Konsa, Trezeguet are injured. Ramsay, Buendia, Martinez are in quarantine.Sanson and Davis are a doubt.
The teams have both scored and conceded in their last three matches.
This bet played in 2 of Chelsea's last 3 games.
In 3 of Aston Villa's last 4 games, the opponents scored in both halves.
This bet played in the last two games of Chelsea.
Chelsea lead the head-to-head, but they have lost in the previous fixture against Aston Villa. The Blues have the class advantage and the supports of the stands, and they will strive to get to the first line of the table. Aston Villa are seriously weakened by injuries, and we don't think that they have a good chance to win this game.
Our prediction — Asian handicap (-1,5) to Chelsea

We predict that this game will have multiple scoring chances for the favourite. The visitors are likely to play on the defensive, but we doubt that will save them. We suggest playing Chelsea's victory by a margin of 2 goals.
Second wager — Chelsea to win by 2 goals
