Possible Chelsea Starting Line Up Against Aston Villa


Chelsea will travel to Villa Park on Saturday to face Aston Villa, looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.


With Champions League football coming up next week, Jose Mourinho might be tempted to rest some of his key players. However, with both Liverpool and Arsenal having tough fixtures this weekend, Chelsea could go 10 points clear at the top, should all the results go in their favour.

The key decision for Mourinho would be whether to stick with the 4-3-3 formation or deploy his favourite 4-2-3-1 system.

The back four should remain the same, but David Luiz may be pushing for a recall, should he pass a late fitness test. Nemanja Matic is sure to start, as he is ineligible for the Champions League tie.

Oscar may come in to the side, if Mourinho prefers a 4-2-3-1 formation. Fernando Torres could return to the squad ahead of schedule, but will probably not be risked, while Demba Ba may also come in contention, having scored a brace against Spurs last time out.

This could be another possible Chelsea line-up, if Mourinho goes with a 4-3-3 formation.

Prediction: 1-2 - Chelsea have won their last 4 matches against Aston Villa in all competitions and expect the Blues to earn all three points on Saturday as well.

  1. This is a crucial match for Chelsea hence a must win game. The three maximum points will propel Chelsea close to clinching the title and Mourinho knows this better. He’s to field a strong squard to be home and dry.

  2. The blues forever,chelsea will not and will never take any team for grant especially at this period of the season.

    • I strongly agree Chelsea will take every game remaining seriously as loosing or allowing draws will cost them a lot. Chelsea must play to win all remaking games to exert pressure on Man City.

  15. I like the 4-2-3-1 formation, however, I think Salah should start and rest Hazard for CL on Tuesday (bring on Hazard half time if necessary).

  16. plz jose give our kid salah achance today

  17. let salah,willian,hazard and Ba to start

  18. Chelsea stands a good chance to win the league title if it manages to win all the remaining fixtures and Man City wins all but draws one.

  19. This is not the time for trial and error. Aston is at home so we need full strength. Etoo and Hazard must kill the game in 1st half and be rested in second half. Go Jose.
