Branislav Ivanovic has four goals in his last four matches against Aston Villa

Aston Villa are currently six points off of the relegation zone and will be desperate for a last few points to guarantee their safety. The Villains have not had the best of results in recent years losing the last four including an 8-0 loss at Stamford Bridge last season.

“They are going for the title and the Champions League so they are in their hunting for big trophies and it’s up to us to try and de-rail them.”

Paul Lambert

Chelsea are currently top of the table by seven points, but all three clubs behind them all have a game in hand on them (Chelsea have three). The blues are unbeaten in their last 14 Premier League matches, but all three of their league losses have come away from home.
