Chelsea v Aston Villa Preview

Chelsea’s Form

Chelsea have been a curious case under Pochetinho this season currently nineth in the league, there are signs of the tide turning more though with four victories and one defeat in their last five league games. They have been more consistent in Cup competitions though beating Middlesbrough 6-1 midweek to reach the EFL Cup Final.

That victory against Middlesbrough was as comprehensive as they came overturning their 1-0 deficit from the first leg of the tie with a clinical 6-1 victory scoring those six goals from just 13  shots and an XG of 2.97 and only conceding 1 goal.

Chelsea come into this with a record of 40 victories in their last 47 FA Cup matches at home, winning their last eight with an aggregate score of 24-3.

Aston Villa’s Form

Aston Villa had a phenomenal 2023 and have continued those performances into 2024 with their only defeat in their last fourteen matches in all competitions coming 3-2 against Man United on Boxing Day. Interestingly, they faced Middlesbrough last round winning 1-0 and ending their eight-match losing streak in the competition.

Villa despite their solid form had a disappointing 0-0 draw away to Everton a few weeks ago. Despite their 69% of possession, they weren’t able to create many meaningful chances with their 16 shots only accumulating an XG of 1.26, marginally higher than Everton’s total of 1.20  from ten shots.

The job being done by Unai Emery at Aston Villa is going criminally under the rader and it’s not beyond the realms of possibility they pick up a result here continuing their flying form.

Key Players To Watch

Raheem Sterling – Chelsea

Considering the career he has had with Liverpool, Man City and now Chelsea at only 29 years old, some could argue that Sterling is one of the most underrated Premier League Footballers in the last decade or a half.

Ahead of this game, Sterling has 10 goals and 9 assists in his last 20 FA Cup starts including scoring and assisting one each in their 4-0 victory over Preston in the third round.

Ollie Watkins -Aston Villa

The pacy Villa attacker Watkins (27) is The Villian’s primary attacking threat with 14 goals and 10 assists from 29 matches in all competitions this season for the club.

His pace and link-up play will be crucial on the counter for Villa in this cup game particularly if Chelsea dominates possession as expected.

Chelsea v Aston Villa Prediction & Best Bet

Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Aston Villa

Chelsea look like a more consistent animal in recent weeks, particularly in cup competitions and will come into this fixture full of confidence.

Aston Villa despite their disappointing draw against Everton last time out have proved a tough nut to crack for everyone this season and have major claims again.

This match could genuinely go either way, (hence my best bet choice) no matter who wins I think it’ll be narrow but right now I am backing Chelsea.

Best Bet:  Ollie Watkins First Goalscorer 11/2
