Chelsea vs Aston Villa
England – League Cup
Date: Wednesday, 22 September 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have transformed themselves into a monstrous squad, and they really look contenders to go after every single title. Aston Villa are no mean team, but against the reigning European champions, they have no chance of a win.
As expected, Thomas Tuchel’s men have begun their campaign on a great note. Right away they have raced to the top of the PL table, and remain one of only three teams yet to maintain an unbeaten run.
Only Manchester United have scored more goals than them (outscored just by one goal), and impressively the Blues have conceded a total of just one goal so far – which is the best record in the league.
They are also at home this Wednesday, and have been on a great run here for the past several months.
In the meantime, Villa have been going through a rather inconsistent streak at the moment, and especially on the road, they have been on a poor stretch for quite some time.
On top of that, they also have a poor h2h record against this foe for the past several seasons.
By the looks of things, expect a win for Chelsea this Wednesday at the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea vs Aston Villa: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 3-0 win for the European champions, and the game had taken place just last week.
- They had recorded 11 of the past 13 overall wins.
- The team had scored two or more goals in seven of the past nine clashes.
- At this venue, the hosts had won six of the preceding seven meetings.
Chelsea vs Aston Villa Prediction
The Blues had just recorded a thumping 0-3 win on the road against Tottenham, and they are on a 13-game unbeaten streak as well – 11 of which were wins.
They had also kept clean sheets in six of the former seven fixtures, and had scored two or more goals in nine of their previous eleven games.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in three of their last five overall matches, and they had lost three of their preceding five road trips.
And most importantly, Tuchel’s men have a great h2h record against this foe as well.
Taking into account these observations, expect a win for Chelsea at their home this Wednesday.
