There have been several bumps in the road for Chelsea this season, although the Blues have come out of winter with a spring in their step and they can be backed with confidence to win at Villa Park in this Saturday teatime clash.

Team news | League Table | Odds

While Frank Lampard’s side don’t have much turnaround time after their midweek Champions League encounter at the Allianz Arena, their previous performance against Everton illustrated that they’re in excellent form and the manager will be pleased that certain players are back in the groove.

Olivier Giroud has come in from the cold to lead the line, while Ross Barkley was the driving force behind that 4-0 triumph against his former club. We’ve also seen eighteen-year-old Billy Gilmour emerge on to the scene and make a big impact.

Chelsea have a reasonably healthy win rate of 50% when they take to the road and they’ve often looked more comfortable away from Stamford Bridge, with Pedro, Willian and Mason Mount all likely to pose problems for an Aston Villa side who have often looked out of their depth this term.

Without the virtuoso performances of Jack Grealish, it’s plausible that Dean Smith’s side would already be doomed and the Villans have lost 26 of their 37 matches played to date.

The fact that the home side now need to go for victories makes life all the more harder against opponents capable of picking them off on the counter-attack and we think the best way to play this match is a simple punt on the Full-Time Result market.

Before Monday’s match against Leicester, Aston Villa had lost four consecutive matches and a 3-2 home defeat against a far from convincing Tottenham team is enough evidence to suggest that Chelsea can win with something to spare.
