Aston Villa vs Chelsea – Team News

Chelsea face Aston Villa at Villa Park in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

Mauricio Pochettino makes two changes to the team that was battered by Wolves at the weekend. Thiago Silva drops out, with Benoit Badiashile coming in.

It’s the same midfield trio, but a new look front 3 as Cole Palmer and Noni Madueke flank Nicolas Jackson.

It’s a big chance for Noni to impress. He’s got to fight off competition from Christopher Nkunku, Raheem Sterling, Mykhailo Mudryk and Nicolas Jackson for minutes, plus Carney Chukwuemeka if he’s used in the front 3. It’s not going to be an easy task, and he has to make the most of his chances when they come.

Villa will be cheered on by a big and ferocious home crowd. This is going to be a really tough game.

Here are the full team line-ups for Aston Villa vs Chelsea (kick off at 20:00 GMT)

  1. This manager really going to be sack . His selection today isn’t improving . He knows the central midfield isn’t working and soft , still he pick same tandem . I don’t see my fav team Chelsea FC win . He pick soft line up . And I am sure same tactics . What a waste of money to hire this manager . .
