Premier League: 3 Things to Look Forward to as Chelsea Host Aston Villa | ht_media

FBL-ENG-PR-CHELSEA-WEST HAM

Chelsea take on Aston Villa in the league in the next match as the Stamford Bridge outfit would want to put an end to their two-match losing streak in the Premier League. Villa, meanwhile, come off the back of a solid 2-2 draw against Manchester United and would be confident of toppling the Londoners, who seem to be going through a rather rough patch of form. 

With that in mind, here are the three things to look forward to.

3. Tammy Abraham could be back for this match

The absence of Tammy Abraham hurt the Londoners in the last match against West Ham. Even though they have a lot of shots, they couldn’t manage to score a single goal in the game.

 

Abraham has been the first-choice forward for the Londoners. The youngster has been in superb form for the club as he has scored 10 goals from 13 matches in the league so far this season and his return would be a major boost for the Blues. 

2. Jack Grealish could unsettle the Blues

Jack Grealish is having a good season in the Premier League so far. The midfielder has been a creative hub for his side and was impressive against the Old Trafford outfit in his last game. 

Indeed, he opened the scoring in that match and helped his side come out of it with a 2-2 draw. Grealish is a magnificent creator with an eye for goal and he could cause real trouble for Chelsea’s defence in this match.

Frank Lampard has done a great job with the Blues after taking over the management of the club. He has formed a team capable of wowing the fans with their impressive attacking cohesion but there seems to be a major problem that he has to attend to. 

The Londoners have conceded 20 goals from 14 matches so far this season and have the defensive record among the top four sides in the Premier League right now. Indeed, only Tottenham and Arsenal have conceded more goals than them among the teams in the top half of the table – which is a testament to how fragile they have been defensively.
