Aston Villa vs Chelsea Prediction and Betting Preview 21 June 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-2
Aston Villa vs Chelsea PredictionWith club legend Frank Lampard unveiled as the new manager earlier in the season, Chelsea supporters must have been delighted at the prospect of seeing a familiar face at the club. However, for all their optimism, there were doubts over the Englishman’s credentials as head coach.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 30
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham)
Hanging his boots in 2016, after a short spell in the MLS with New York City, Lampard’s managerial career kicked off with a one-year stint at Championship club Derby County. He managed to hone his skills at the club for a while before being called in by his former club.

Approached by club owner Roman Abramovich, the English gaffer just couldn’t pass up the chance of taking his favored club under his tutelage. Signing the papers to become Chelsea’s head coach must have been a dream come true for Lampard.

Now, with Chelsea’s top-four hopes up in the air, Lampard has been vested with the task of sealing the Blues’ fourth-spot sooner rather than later. However, with a host of teams hot on their tails, the Blues will need a win against Aston Villa on Sunday evening to steer clear of the chasing park.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea Team News

Following their promotion to English top-flight football, Aston Villa have struggled to adapt to the daily hassles of the Premier League. Having endured a difficult campaign so far, the Lions are currently embroiled in a heated relegation battle at the bottom of the standings.

Looking to bring their faltering campaign back on track, the relegation candidates set out to take on high-flying Sheffield United on the last matchday. In a drab goalless encounter at the Villa Park, we were deprived of goal-mouth action or any real openings.

With the Villa dominating proceedings from start to finish, their lack of cutting-edge in the final third cost them dearly. You get the feeling that, on another day, Aston Villa would have taken the Blades to the cleaners with their superiority. However, they had to settle for a point this time around.

Chelsea, on the other hand, were handed the routine task of defeating relegation-threatened Bournemouth two fixtures ago but fell short of expectations. The Blues had one job to do but jinxed it in the end.

In a frantic encounter at the Vitality Stadium, the Blades matched Chelsea toe-to-toe, giving them a run for their money. Despite the brace from Marcos Alonso, Bournemouth’s Lema and King ensured a thrilling 2-2 draw was played out in Bournemouth.

For this fixture, Chelsea have to be considered favorites for the win. Following their emphatic 4-0 victory over Everton last time out, they have extended their unbeaten run to four games on the bounce. Barring the loss to Manchester United earlier, the Blues are on a six-game unbeaten run in the league.

Also, the Blues have been impressive on the road, sporting the third-best away record in the league. However, they have been pretty mediocre on their travels lately, going four games without a win – three of which had ended in draws.

In a tale of contrasting fortunes, Aston Villa had been on a four-game losing streak before sharing the spoils against Sheffield last time out. They have failed to register a single goal over their previous three games. To pile on the misery, they have secured wins just five times on this ground all season.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea Predictions

Going by these, Chelsea have to be touted strong candidates for victory. With a flurry of superstars within their ranks, the Blues should breeze past their weak opposition very comfortably. Given the hosts are in dire need of points at the moment, expect Dean Smith’s charges to put forth a strong performance.

However, the visitors should prove too strong for them in the end. Fancy a fairly comfortable Chelsea win with Lampard’s side bagging no more than two goals before the end of the ninety minutes.
