Chelsea vs. Aston Villa Match Analysis and Prediction

After a disappointing loss in the London Derby last weekend, Chelsea proceeds to host Aston Villa in their rough run of games. The match schedules for Monday at the Stamford Bridge with kickoff at 8:30 pm.

In contrast, Villa head into Stamford Bridge on the back of a 3-0 win at Crystal Palace, with Dean Smith’s side playing the second half down to ten men on Boxing Day.

Fresh from a resounding 3-0 victory over local rivals West Ham, Frank Lampard was full of expectations heading into the London Derby against a struggling Arsenal side. A win could have seen the Blues march the most successive triumph in a London Derby.

However, a penalty converted by Alexandre Lacazette, followed by a free-kick by Granit Xhaka, and a wonder goal by Saka proved the difference. Even a late minute equalizer by Tammy Abraham could not see off points shared.

The tempo was rising in the game’s final minutes as Mount picked a penalty after a foul by Pablo Mari. However, Jorginho failed to convert a penalty after a triumphant save by Bernd Leno. The loss marks three defeats in the last four games.

Dean Smith heads into the clash with hopes of extending their current run to four unbeaten matches on Boxing Day. The West Midlands derby was a show of Villa character with only ten men in the second half.
