Aston Villa have a fairly dismal recent record against Chelsea, last beating the west London side at home in 2009, and shipping seven and eight goals in disastrous matches at Stamford Bridge since.
Still, while the Blues are clear Premier League title favourites with the bookies – if not with Jose Mourinho – there is an argument that they have not had many performances that have really set down the gauntlet to their rivals.
Last weekend, Chelsea defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-0, but all four goals were largely of Spurs’ own doing, and only on four other occasions have they claimed victory by more than a two goal margin.
With three losses in their last five matches, Aston Villa may not be the team to upset the Blues, but the same was thought of Stoke City, Everton and Newcastle, who each beat Chelsea despite being unfancied prior to kickoff.
Paul Lambert will hope that the physical power of Christian Benteke up front can cause Chelsea problems, while big performances will be expected of Ron Vlaar and Fabian Delph too.
Chelsea are set to once again rely on their attacking midfield for goals, with Eden Hazard, Willian, Oscar, Andre Schurrle and Frank Lampard all capable of finding the back of the net.
