Chelsea was placed at 4th position. They made 26 points in the table. They made 28 goals and 20 assists. While Aston Villa was placed at 15th position. They made 21 goals and 20 assists. They face a Chelsea side who have lost back-to-back league matches but are accustomed to playing a busy schedule and should be able to bounce back to winning ways here.
The quick turnaround in matches will encourage Lampard to rotate for this game as Kante, Azpilicueta and Willian could return to the side.
Injured topscorer Abraham missed the loss at the weekend but he is desperate to return to face the club he spent last season on loan.
Boss Dean Smith is forced into at least one change as Guilbert is suspended so Elmohamady will come in for the Frenchman at right-back.
