  • Both teams have scored in eight of Aston Villa’s last nine league games.

  • Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings between Villa and Chelsea.

Make or break time for Chelsea

Chelsea travel to the West Midlands to take on Aston Villa on the final day of the Premier League season where the Blues will be treading the fine line between catastrophe and glory.

Thomas Tuchel’s men occupy third spot ahead of the campaign’s climax, though dropped points against the Villains could see Chelsea replaced in the top-four by their FA Cup final conquerors Leicester City with the right swing of results.

The Blues put themselves firmly in the driving seat when they outfoxed City at Stamford Bridge in midweek, though the distraction of a Champions League final on the horizon threatens to complicate the picture at Villa Park.

Villa a different animal with Grealish

Villa talisman Jack Grealish started his first Premier League game since February against Tottenham on Wednesday evening and his inclusion made a notable difference to the Villains’ performance.

Grealish mustered three attempts on goal and played four key passes during Villa’s excellent 2-1 win over Spurs and their margin of victory might have been even wider had they been more clinical in the final third.

With Grealish back pulling the strings, Villa should provide a trickier test for Chelsea than they might have done just a couple of weeks ago.

Both teams to score at Villa Park

Aston Villa racked up an incredible 20 attempts on goal and scored twice against Tottenham in midweek and with the home crowd back to cheer them on, the Villains are worth backing to find the net again against Chelsea.

Thomas Tuchel has decisions to make about which players to include or rest ahead of next week’s Champions League final, though the Blues – who have one of the division’s deepest squads – should have the quality to cope on two fronts.

Bettors are advised to back both teams to score at Villa Park as a result, while our 2-1 correct score prediction tips Chelsea to gather the points they need to claim a top-four berth.

The Blues performed impressively to beat Leicester by the same scoreline on Tuesday evening and armed with extra motivation to push for victory on Sunday, Chelsea are our favourites to get over the line.

Aston Villa injuries and team news

Trezeguet, Matty Cash and Morgan Sanson are all injured and won’t play on Sunday. Ross Barkley cannot face his parent club and has most likely played his last game for Villa.

Chelsea injuries and team news

N’Golo Kante and Kai Havertz are unlikely to be risked by Thomas Tuchel after injury scares, though the German must decide how many of his stars to play with the Champions League final fast approaching.
