Chelsea vs Aston Villa Preview, Latest H2H Record and Betting Tips: Gameweek 19, Boxing Day Premier League 21/22
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea have looked out of sorts in recent matches and have already strayed 6 points behind leaders Manchester City at the summit of the Premier League. To see if they can get back to winning ways, we at Alley Sport bring you the Chelsea vs Aston Villa Preview, Latest H2H Record and Betting Tips as we analyse this Premier League Boxing Day 21/22 fixture, all for you!
Chelsea vs Aston Villa Preview
Chelsea looked to be everyone’s favourites for the Premier League title after their sparkling form early in the season which saw them win 8 of their opening 10 fixtures which included a 7-0 hammering of Norwich. However, Thomas Tuchel’s Blues seem to have lost some momentum since, with only 3 wins from the 8 thereafter. They have looked less menacing and clinical in front of goal, and have found goals hard to come by in more recent outings.
Much was expected from the strike partnership of £97.5 million man Romelu Lukaku and pacy Timo Werner, but both have struggled to even get into the starting XI this campaign. With COVID partly to blame for their misfortunes as well, the Stamford Bridge faithful will be eager to put this run of bad form behind them and start afresh, especially with key players returning from injury, starting away at Villa on Boxing Day.
Meanwhile in the East Midlands, Aston Villa have been making steady progress ever since Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was appointed as manager. They finally seem to be playing as a team and realizing the immense potential thier squad possesses. Despite recent losses to Chelsea’s title competitors Man City and Liverpool, Villa have looked good against opposition that sits back and could prove a stern test for Tuchel’s title-chasing Blues in London this weekend.
