3-5 December 2019

Chelsea will target three points when they host Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge in London on Wednesday 4 December 2019, kick-off at 20:30. The match is one of 10 spread from 3-5 December in the 15th round of the current Premier League season.

Chelsea suffered a fourth league defeat of the season when they were surprisingly beaten 1-0 at home by London rivals West Ham United this past weekend. The Blues still enjoy a healthy six-point lead over Tottenham Hotspur in the top-four race, but manager Frank Lampard will want to see a major improvement in midweek.

“I still believe in the squad. That will be questions that will be asked but I do believe in the squad. ‘This is not the time for harsh reactions or judgements. It is just time to look for a bit of character from the players,” said Lampard.

Villa, meanwhile, put in a promising showing to hold Manchester United 2-2 at Old Trafford, though the Birmingham club are just three points clear of the relegation zone and cannot afford to rest on their laurels.

“I’m probably a little bit frustrated, because our first-half performance was very good, aside from their goal. It was a spirited display,” said manager Dean Smith, who will hope to have Anwar El Ghazi fit after he limped out of the game against United with an injury, though Egyptian Mohamed Trezeguet could prove an able replacement.
