Aston Villa vs Chelsea

Aston Villa have been the surprise package of 2023/24. The Villans were expected to do well in the Europa Conference League given Unai Emery’s pedigree in lower-tier European competitions, but few expected the Midlands outfit to be so impressive domestically.

A sensational home record this term, combined with a 3-1 win over Bournemouth last time out and a huge 2-0 win over league-leaders Arsenal the gameweek prior means Aston Villa sit 4th in the division with four games to play. 5th-place Tottenham will go level on points with Emery and co. if they win their games in hand, but Villa’s superior goal difference (+21 versus +16) makes them the favourites to nab that final Champions League place.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are on their own hunt for European football but unlike Aston Villa, they are not guaranteed anything just yet. The Blues have been plagued by inconsistency this season, with a nine-game unbeaten run in the league ended on Monday thanks to a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal.

Despite losing to the Gunners, Chelsea’s games in hand mean they are still firmly in the race for a top six finish come May, but they really need to pick up a win this weekend to keep the pressure on Manchester United and Newcastle.
