Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Chelsea will be looking to make amends for a heart-breaking loss to Arsenal when they welcome Aston Villa at their Stamford Bridge on Matchday 16. The Blues made a flying start to the season, but they do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of Monday’s clash. Timo Werner produced a poor display in the London derby, and, as a result, he is likely to drop to the bench. Summer signing Hakim Ziyech should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Villans, on the other hand, have been in a splendid form of late, with the team rolling over both WBA and Crystal Palace in the previous two league matches. Important defender Tyrone Mings, though, misses Monday’s match through suspension, and seeing that Chelsea are a real force to be reckoned with at home, the newcomers are likely to return to Birmingham empty-handed.
