Aston Villa vs. Chelsea - Premier League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Prediction. 



The English Premier League comes to an end on Sunday, May 23, 2021. All matches will be played at the same time at 16:00 (GMT+1) including Aston Villa vs. Chelsea which kicks off at Villa Park. 


Aston Villa defeated Tottenham Hotspur despite going a goal down early into the game. Steven Bergwijn (8') got the opener minutes after kick-off but Sergio Reguilon’s own goal (20’ O.G.) leveled the score-line. Ollie Watkins (39’) eventually scored the winner, minutes before heading into the tunnel. 2-1! It finished in a win for Aston Villa – their second after three games: WLDLW as they sit in 11th place -


 outside the top ten before the final game of the season. The Claret & Blue Army have scored 53 goals and conceded 45 - hence, have a GD of +8 coupled with 52 points after 15W, 7D & 15L. Their stats indicate a goal ratio of 1.43 goals per game. Dean Smith is expected to adopt a conventional 4—4—2 formation when he takes on Chelsea this Sunday. 








Chelsea defeated Leicester City, 2-1 on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge. The Blues got right into it, forcing Leicester City’s goalkeeper, Schmeichel to make the save twice before Timo Werner had his goal ruled out by the flag. The German international was denied again the second time after a VAR review spotted a hand ball. 



In the second-half, Antonio Ruediger (47’) put the Blues in the lead before Jorginho (66’ P.) doubled Chelsea’s lead from the penalty spot after sending the goalkeeper the wrong way. Later on, Kelechi Iheanacho (76’) came off the bench and scored the Foxes’ only goal. Chelsea moved to 3rd place after that win which leaves them with 19W, 10D & 8L. 



They have scored 57 goals and conceded 34 - and hence, have a GD of +23. The Blues have a goal ratio of 1.54 goals per game and a form that reads: WWWLW (Premier League). Thomas Tuchel will likely adopt a 3—5—2 formation with Timo Werner and Kai Havert in attack when Chelsea with 67 points make another Premier League appearance.

A 2-0 win for Chelsea is predicted at full-time.
