Chelsea take on Aston Villa in the Premier League this weekend. Here is absolutely everything you need to know about the fixture.

Another week, unfortunately at the moment, brings another Premier League fixture for Chelsea. It’s safe to say it’s been a really tough start to the season for Mauricio Pochettino‘s side.

A 0-0 draw to Bournemouth on the weekend means the Blues now sit in 14th in the league after five games – with just one win.

Things must change, but they now face a tough test against Aston Villa. Here’s everything you need to know about the fixture.

When do Chelsea play Aston Villa?

Chelsea play Aston Villa on Sunday the 24th of September 2023 with kick-off at 2 pm BST.

The match will be played at Stamford Bridge.

Is the match on TV?

The game will unfortunately not be shown on TV in the UK.

This is because the North London derby is also on at 2 PM – meaning neither Sky Sports nor TNT Sports has the means to broadcast live.

Live Stream

There, unfortunately, won’t be any way to live stream the Premier League fixture either.

Highlights will be available on the official Sky Sports Premier League YouTube channel a little later in the day, or you can catch up with the Blues on Match of the Day, which will be on BBC 1 later on Sunday night.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa Team News

Although early, there is team news we can take forward to Sunday’s game.

Some positive news is that Chelsea’s all-time most expensive transfer could be back to face Unai Emery’s side. Moises Caicedo had a slight knock after the international break but looks like he could return against the Villans.

Similarly, Noni Madueke could also return. He is yet to start a Premier League game this season during a very quiet start to life under Mauricio Pochettino. 

Besides that – Chelsea have an extensive injury list, with twelve players out.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa Prediction

Aston Villa have a very tough side. Unfortunately, we think this will be yet another draw.

Prediction: Chelsea 1 – 1 Aston Villa
