This Wednesday evening, by some strange coincidence, Chelsea welcome, for a second consecutive fixture, a team that plays in claret and blue when Aston Villa descend upon West London.
Hopefully, Chelsea will fare better than when they welcomed the other side who play in claret and blue, West Ham United when they slipped to a 1-0 defeat.
After the rigours of taking on Manchester City (a) and Valencia (a), Frank Lampard chose to rotate his starting eleven for the Hammers game, resting Willian and Kante and having to play Giroud instead of the injured Abraham.
Sadly, the changes saw Chelsea produce a disappointing display with the side looking, after the efforts of recent weeks.
With the games coming thick and fast, Lampard will have to think deep when it comes to who he selects for his starting eleven, against Aston Villa.
The record books show, that although Chelsea still sit in 4th place in the table, they’ve lost their last two Premier League games.
As is the norm, we’re giving you the chance to second guess the gaffer and predict just who he’ll pick for his starting eleven against Aston Villa.
Will Willian and Kante be recalled?
Will Abraham return to lead the line?
Simply drop your predicted starting eleven into the comment facility beneath this article and we’ll see if anyone gets it spot on.
Chelsea v Aston Villa (H)
Chelsea to Win!
Aston Villa to Win!
