Aston Villa v Chelsea Match Preview & Trends

Champions League Final places at stake for The Blues

Thomas Tuchel has one last opportunity to run the rule over his squad before picking his starting eleven for the Champions League Final. There is also the small matter of the race for the top four with Chelsea one point ahead of both Liverpool and Leicester going into the final game of the season.  

Aston Villa have been shown the first card in the last 6 home games against Chelsea and have won just one of their last 5 Premier League home matches. Smith’s side haven’t won their last 7 matches in a row against Chelsea, conceding at least one goal per game in the process. The Villains have only won one of their last 5 home games against Chelsea.

If Aston Villa win, they would reduce the gap with Chelsea to a 12-point difference in the league table, and it would be the end of a 4-match winless streak at home for Villa and the end of an 8-match unbeaten streak away for Chelsea. Should the match end in a draw, Chelsea would remain 15 points ahead of Aston Villa in the league table, and it would be the end of a 3-match winning streak away for Chelsea and Villa’s 5th consecutive home match without a win. If Chelsea win, they would increase their lead over Aston Villa to 18 points in the league table, and it would be The Blues’ 4th consecutive away win, Villa’s 5th consecutive home match without a win, and Chelsea’s 9th consecutive away match without defeat.

There have been fewer than 3 goals scored in total in each of Chelsea’s last 7 games and they have scored before half-time in their last 4 fixtures. Chelsea have scored before half-time in their last 4 away games and have outscored their opponents in both halves in each of their last 2 games. Chelsea have scored the opening goal of the game in their last 4 away games and have scored in 76% of their away matches. Thomas Tuchel’s men are undefeated in their last 7 away matches.

Key trends

Chelsea have scored in 78% of their away matches

Aston Villa have picked up an average of 1.22 Points Per Game in their 18 matches played at home

Chelsea’s average Points Per Game in their 18 away games is 1.89.
