Chelsea vs Aston Villa preview
Last season Villa had an exceptional scoring record on the road, netting in 16 of their last 19 games away from Villa Park.
The side have started the current campaign in similar fashion netting twice in their first away game of the term at Watford last month and there could be some interest in backing them to find the net in the capital this weekend.
Chelsea will provide stern opposition of course, but Villa managed to score against them in both matches last season, while the Blues conceded in home games in the previous campaign against the likes of Sheffield United, West Brom, Southampton and Leeds.
Chelsea vs Aston Villa tips & predictions
Both teams to score is priced at 6/5 (2.20) and looks like an excellent option. This selection has paid out in both of the most recent meetings between the sides as well as in each of Villa’s last six away league clashes.
