Can Aston Villa play the role of spoiler when it hosts top-four hopefuls Chelsea at Villa Park on Championship Sunday
Chelsea is back in the Champions League with a win, and while they could still earn UCL status by beating Man City to the European Cup, getting a win Sunday is preferable.
Villa has already spoiled one team’s slim European hopes by winning at Tottenham on Wednesday and will like the idea of doing it twice in four days, as Jack Grealish is back doing what he does best.
Here is everything you need to know ahead of Aston Villa – Chelsea this Sunday with team news and more.
Aston Villa injuries
OUT: Ross Barkley (loan – parent club), Trezeguet (knee), Matty Cash (hamstring), Morgan Sanson (knee)
QUESTIONABLE: N’Golo Kante (hamstring), Kai Havertz (undisclosed), Andreas Christensen (thigh)
While Grealish and Co. are playing footloose and fancy free, Chelsea is not exactly a Spring chicken when it comes to big games and should have more than enough in the tank to produce a win… but it’ll be tight as Tyrone Mings and Emiliano Martinez stand firm at the back. Aston Villa 0-2 Chelsea.
Kickoff: 11 am ET Sunday
