Aston Villa host Chelsea at Villa Park on Saturday night, looking to strengthen their grip on a top-four spot and pile more misery on the Blues.

The Villans have a strong recent record against Chelsea, winning three of their last five meetings, including a 2-1 victory in their previous Premier League encounter. However, Chelsea did triumph 3-1 in their FA Cup meeting in February.

Aston Villa is primed for a successful end to the season, with a top-four finish and European ambitions still on the table. In contrast, Chelsea’s campaign is unraveling, with their midweek thrashing at Arsenal a new low point.

The match kicks off at 20:00 BST, with Craig Pawson officiating and Chris Kavanagh on VAR duty. Can Aston Villa further cement their top-four credentials and deepen Chelsea’s woes, or will the Blues find a way to bounce back and revive their season? One thing is certain – this encounter promises to be a thrilling and potentially pivotal match in the Premier League’s top-four race.
