Frank Lampard paid the price for questionable team selection on Saturday, deciding to leave N’Golo Kante and Willian out of the Starting XI for the clash against West Ham, while Reece James was also preferred ahead of Cesar Azpilicueta.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Chelsea ended up losing the game by a single goal and Lampard will now look for an improved performance against an Aston Villa side who are fresh from drawing 2-2 at Old Trafford last weekend.

Tammy Abraham is still unavailable for the home side which means the manager has to decide between Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud in an attacking position, while it’s possible that we’ll see Callum Hudson-Odoi enjoy a rare start after a twenty-minute cameo against the Hammers.

Chelsea did enjoy a seven-match winning run a few weeks ago, although they’ve only triumphed twice in the previous seven encounters and their form at Stamford Bridge has been decidedly iffy since the season began.

There have only been three wins in seven games and the team also failed to overcome Ajax and Valencia in the Champions League, with Aston Villa arriving looking to make life difficult for their opponents.

Dean Smith’s side are going along nicely and were full value for their point against Manchester United, with the Villans having previously beaten Newcastle and they’ll be looking to continue the unbeaten run going in this clash.

While a home win is the most likely outcome, we’re not sure that Chelsea can win by a huge margin and the only teams that they’ve beaten by two goals are Brighton and Crystal Palace.

With Jack Grealish and John McGinn both in excellent form for the visiting side, we have no reservation in backing them at even money with a comfortable 1.5 goal cushion. 

That means that the visitors losing by a single goal will be enough to profit with this bet.
