Aston Villa are just four games away from securing their first-ever spot in the Champions League. The 4th-placed Villains have a six-point lead on Tottenham (though Spurs have two games in hand), and three points here would see them take a giant leap closer to securing a top-four finish, especially as their 5th-placed rivals are facing Arsenal in the North London Derby this weekend. For Aston Villa, it’s a must-win game, against an inconsistent team.

Just when Chelsea looked to have turned a corner following a lengthy unbeaten streak that included wins against Newcastle and Man Utd, a humbling 5-0 defeat to Arsenal has again soured the mood across the club. Mauricio Pochettino is facing intense scrutiny in this first season as Blues boss, and for the club to take any form of positivity into the summer they need to finish strongly. In that regard, Aston Villa away is not an ideally timed matchup.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea should be a thrilling match as both sides won’t want to settle for a point. We’ve got all the details to watch it live and online from anywhere below.
