With history boost on their side, Chelsea FC expecting an encounter against Villans hoping to maintain a good run and keep the first place. The Premier League table-toppers against Paul Lambert’s men have scored 30 goals in their last nine encounters.
Aston Villa occupy 11th position having just sixth points more than Cardiff City who sit on 18th, and that’s why Paul Lampert still wary of being dragged into a relegation survival. Thanks to Benteke’s double last weekend the Villians at home manage to win and end a four-match winless streak, which eased things a little in this perspective.
Paul Lambert press conference
As the toppers of Premier league, not counting the good history against Aston Villa, they are on the good run in the league, with three straight victories after the league defeat from Manchester City. First the Blues beaten Everton at home 1-0, than thanks Andre Schurrle’s hat-trick they won at Fulham with 3-1 and the latest win came at home against the Tottenham Spurs. It was an convincing 4-0 victory, where finaly Chelsea strikers manage to score some goals. It was Samuel Eto’o who scored an opener and Demba Ba who came later in as the substitution who manage to score a double in just a few minutes.
