Welcome to our Aston Villa vs Chelsea preview and predictions. Chelsea have pulled 7 points clear at the top of the league, while Aston Villa are in 11th place. Chelsea’s lead might appear comfortable, but I’m sure their astute manager will be aware that Manchester City have 3 matches in hand and could easily be level on points with them. It is getting very tight in the bottom half of the table, and Aston Villa find themselves just 6 points off the relegation zone. They would love to win this and pull away from the danger zone.
