Chelsea vs Aston Villa Preview and Live Stream

Chelsea are one of the favourites to win the EFL Cup this season and the champions of Europe would be hoping to win a significant tally of silverware this season. However, it is not going to be easy in any way because of their opposition- Aston Villa. It’s not a good feeling getting a Premier League club this early on in the cup.

It would warrant Thomas Tuchel to field a stronger side than he would have otherwise had they drawn a non-PL team. Aston Villa, on the other hand, would see cup competitions as their only hope of trophies this year. If Dean Smith, without the distraction of Europe, focuses his resources in this competition which they haven’t won since 1996, then they can give their fans something to remember from this campaign.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa Prediction

We are going with a narrow win for the Villains here. Dean Smith can afford to put out a strong team while Tuchel will be mindful of the fixture congestion. While the game will be a close affair, we still think that Aston Villa would want this game more and hence, have the edge of the current UEFA Champions League holders.
