Today marks a crucial clash in the Premier League as Chelsea take on Aston Villa in a bid to bounce back from their disappointing draw with Everton last weekend.
The Blues were left frustrated after their 1-1 draw with the Toffees, and manager Frank Lampard will be eager to get back to winning ways as they face a tough test against Dean Smith’s side.
Aston Villa have been in superb form this season and currently sit ninth in the league, just one point behind Chelsea.
Chelsea have been inconsistent in recent weeks, with their last win coming nearly a month ago against Crystal Palace.
With the race for a Champions League spot still wide open, they will need to take all three points if they are to stand any chance of making the top four.
The match kicks off at 8.15pm tonight at Stamford Bridge and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Premier League.
It will also be available to stream on Sky Go and NOW TV for those without a Sky Sports subscription.
The Blues will be without defender Thiago Silva and winger Hakim Ziyech for the game, with both players out with hamstring injuries.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa will be without captain Jack Grealish, who is still recovering from a shin injury.
This is an important game for both teams and it promises to be an intriguing encounter.
Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways and enhance their chances of finishing in the top four, while Aston Villa will be looking to continue their impressive form and possibly climb even higher up the league table.
