Aston Villa vs Chelsea 26.12.2021
Take nothing away from Villa’s performances since Gerrard took over, as even Manchester City and Liverpool struggled to get over the line in the West Midlands. The Villains exhibited their quality to earn a deserving 0-2 win against Norwich city which moved them to the upper middle table, and will hope to keep that form against the Champions.
That said, Thomas Tuchel will have a sigh of relieve as Chelsea brought an end to their winless run with a 0-2 win against Brentford in the EFL Cup match. Even though they fielded a lot of new players, this should give them some confidence as they hope to get back to winning ways in the PL matches.
As a result, we fancy another cagy game with a draw in the first half.
