Chelsea will be desperate to get back to winning ways when they welcome Aston Villa to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s regime got off to a rather bleak start. After spending as usual in the summer, Chelsea have shown no signs of promise in the early stages of the new campaign.
The Blues’ only league win so far came against newly-promoted Luton Town (3-1) in Gameweek 3. They haven’t scored in two games since. They lost 1-0 to Nottingham Forest before being held goalless by Bournemouth last Sunday.
Chelsea are currently 14th in the Premier League table. If they don’t start to convert their chances and plug the leakage at the back, Sunday’s game could prove to be another disappointment for Pochettino’s men.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa have been inconsistent in the opening weeks of the new Premier League season. They have three wins and two defeats in their first five league games this term.
Unai Emery’s men produced a stunning comeback victory over Crystal Palace in their last Premier League appearance. After Odsonne Edouard put Palace ahead in the 47th minute, Aston Villa grabbed all three points in the business end with their blitzkrieg.
Jhon Duran restored parity for Emery’s men in the 87th minute before Douglas Luiz converted from the spot to put them ahead in the eighth minute of stoppage time. In the 11th minute of stoppage time, Leon Bailey completed a remarkable turnaround.
Villa lost 3-2 to Legia Warsaw in their Europa Conference League opener in midweek. They will be looking to put this loss behind them and bring a sense of consistency to their performance when they take on Chelsea this Sunday.
