Thomas Tuchel upset some football purists when he said that he prioritised the battle for a top four place over the FA Cup final.
The German understands the vital importance of playing Champions League football though and was delighted that his Chelsea team were able to beat Leicester in midweek in front of the returning Stamford Bridge faithful.

The world of football moves at lightning speed, especially in the Premier League.
Just a couple of weeks ago and Tuchel was winning plaudits from all quarters for the job he’s done since taking over at Chelsea but now pundits are suggesting that his position will be under pressure if the Blues miss out on a top four place having just lost the FA Cup final to Leicester.

There is no such pressure on Dean Smith even if Aston Villa fans are disappointed that the team’s fortunes have faded somewhat over the season after such a strong start.
A safe midtable finish is a season for everybody at Villa to look forward back on with pride after coming so close to the drop last time around and the home team should at least give their fans something to cheer about so make sure to back both teams to score at 7/10 with BetVictor.

The biggest improvement for Chelsea under Tuchel has been in their defence.
However, the Blues have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last four matches in all competitions so they will need to be firing in an attacking sense if they are to secure the three points that they’re so desperate for.
Mason Mount has popped up with some very important goals for Chelsea this season and having firmly established himself in Tuchel’s first team, Mount can score at Villa Park at 5/2 with 888sport.
