Welcome to our Chelsea vs Aston Villa preview, predictions and head to head analysis. Chelsea have had a terrible start to the season. If the trend continues, one has to wonder how long it will be before the owners lose patience with the Manager. With results like these, most other manager would be out of a job by now, but Mourinho’s reputation has bought him a few extra weeks. The victory against Arsenal has been the highlight of the season, but positives have been hard to find in their other matches. The latest loss to Southampton was probably the low point of the season, and they need to pick things up pretty fast.

Aston Villa are struggling too, with just four points this season. Their only win came against Bournemouth on the opening day of the season. Since then they have sunk lower and lower with losses against Manchester United, Crystal Palace, Leicester, West Brom, Liverpool and Stoke. They are now on a losing streak of 4 matches.
