Chelsea have made a strong start to the new season, collecting seven points from a possible nine.

In their previous outing, they were forced to play with ten men against Liverpool at Anfield.

The Blues still managed to come away with an impressive point as they continue to look a very solid outfit.

Aston Villa’s disappointing start to the season continued as they were held to a draw by newly-promoted Brentford.

Dean Smith’s side have struggled so far following the departure of Jack Grealish.

This weekend, though, Ollie Watkins is set to return from injury to partner Danny Ings, whilst Leon Bailey is in line to make his comeback, too.

Romelu Lukaku to score first – The Belgian has managed to have an instant impact back in the Premier League.

Lukaku looks like a new player following his spell at Inter Milan, with the striker netting in his first game back against Arsenal.

The 27-year-old also netted three goals in two matches over the international break for Belgium, and looks in impressive goal scoring form.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa: Match preview

Chelsea have made a strong start to the new season and look like a team ready to challenge for the title.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have secured seven points from their first three matches, including an impressive point away at Liverpool.

The addition of Romelu Lukaku looks to have given everyone around the club a boost, and sent the team’s performances to a new level.

Lukaku managed to find the back of the net in his first game back against Arsenal, as the Blues defeated the Gunners.

The west London club’s most recent outing saw them hold Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at Anfield, despite playing with ten men for the whole of the second-half.

Aston Villa have made a very slow start to the season, taking just four points from a possible nine.

They suffered a shock defeat on the opening day as they were beaten away at Watford.

Dean Smith’s side then managed to bounce back with a 2-0 win at home against Newcastle United.

However, in the following match, they were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by Brentford.

Despite losing Emi Martinez and Emi Buendia due to Covid travel restrictions, Dean Smith will hope that the return of both Watkins and Bailey will hand his side a boost at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea team news vs Aston Villa

N’Golo Kante is set to remain sidelined as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

Reece James is suspended after being shown a straight red card against Liverpool.

Christian Pulisic suffered an ankle injury whilst away on international duty, and has been ruled out of the match.

Aston Villa team news vs Chelsea

Villa will be without both Emi Buendia and Emi Martinez for Saturday’s clash, as the pair are in quarantine.

Both players travelled to Argentina over the international break, meaning they must now spend ten days in isolation.

Martinez and Buendia are currently training in Croatia, so they are able to train and then return immediately to the UK.

Leon Bailey is available to make his first start for the club after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Bertrand Traore, Ezri Konsa, Jacob Ramsey and Morgan Sanson are all doubts for the weekend, but are close to returning to action.

Trezeguet, Carney Chukwuemeka and Keinan Davis all remain sidelined.
