The teams meet after playing out a goalless draw in West London, and a home encounter with either Leeds United or Plymouth Argyle awaits the midweek winner.

Chelsea had rebuilt the walls of their Stamford Bridge fortress before Aston Villa arrived for their knockout tie on January 26, but while the Blues enjoyed plentyful possession at their West London home, neither side did enough to secure a direct ticket to round five.

The drab draw marked the second of three winless matches for Aston Villa, who had ever-so slightly slipped out of the Premier League title conversation before the weekend’s game against Sheffield United, having only collected one point from their encounters with Everton and Newcastle United.

However, Unai Emery’s side enhanced their Champions League credentials with a 5-0 victory in from of a dejected Bramall Lane faithful.

Just by beating Middlesbrough in their opening FA Cup match, Aston Villa have achieved their best result in the competition since 2015-16 – they have suffered seven successive third-round exits before 2023-24 rolled around – but not since reaching the 2014-15 final have the Lions progressed further than round four.

On that fateful day at Wembley, Aston Villa fell to Arsenal’s FA Cup superiority in a 4-0 defeat to the 14-time winners, and a beleaguered Chelsea also arrive at Villa Park having conceded four goal in the English capital, although just a few days ago rather than nine years ago.

A torrid time on the road has also seen Mauricio Pochettino’s side suffer defeat in six of their last seven matches away from their Stamford Bridge base, but while the form book does not favour the Blues, the historical records do – Chelsea have prevailed in eight of their last nine FA Cup replays.

Aston Villa vs. Chelsea Head to head

In the 153 previous meetings between these two teams, Aston Villa have claimed 55 victories while Chelsea have won 64, and they have drawn in 34. Chelsea have scored 238 goals and conceded 213 in the process.

Aston Villa Team News

Emi Buendia, Tyrone Mings (both knee) or Jhon Duran (hamstring) will not be returning for months, while Pau Torres (ankle), Lucas Digne (thigh) and Nicolo Zaniolo (unspecified) are expected to miss out.

Emery should see no need to alter his pack unless tired legs force his hand, with Moussa Diaby and Matty Cash the beneficiaries of that scenario.
