Jose Mourinho’s men travel to Birmingham today in Saturday’s late kick-off, knowing a win will put them in a very strong position in the race for the title with Arsenal and Liverpool all playing on Sunday.
Chelsea haven’t lost a Premier League fixture since early December, and Paul Lambert’s Villa side have a mammoth task on their hands if they’re to upset the odds this evening.
His side sit in mid-table, but could still be dragged into a relegation battle with them sitting only six points off the drop zone.
The Blues could pick the same side that beat Tottenham 4-0 last time out, meaning Frank Lampard will likely play in midfield. Villa will be without Ryan Bertrand, who is ineligible to face the club who own him.
