Crisis at Chelsea? Fractured Team Faces In-Form Aston Villa

Chelsea has now conceded the most goals in their Premier League history. Their fans are leaving the stadiums before the end of games, their players are picking their moments to step up, pointing to a major problem in the dressing room.

Pochettino is under pressure having failed to turn around last season’s poor finish. They sit ninth in the Premier League but reached the final of the Carabao Cup and the semi-finals of the FA Cup, losing out to Liverpool and Manchester City respectively.

Aston Villa finished strongly last season to secure European football and their performance improved in Unai Emery’s first full campaign in charge.

They are six points ahead of Tottenham, with two games in hand, so this match is crucial for the hosts.

They are one of the best home teams in the league and you should include them in your soccer picks and parlays this week.

Brace vs Arsenal Puts Ollie Watkins in Golden Boot Race

Ollie Watkins is back in the news after his scintillating display and impudent 19th league goal helped Aston Villa to a surprise 2-0 victory over title hopefuls Arsenal.

He is now just one goal behind Man City’s Erling Haaland and Chelsea’s Cole Palmer. Watkins doesn’t take penalties for Villa, which might see him miss out on top-scorer status.

He scored three goals in the previous three league games and we expect him to do it again, If you’re looking to bet a player prop, back him to find the back of the net against Chelsea.



Questions of the Day
