Aston Villa will play host to Chelsea at Villa Park this Sunday as the 2020/21 English Premier League season comes to a close.

Villa caused an upset on Wednesday when beating Tottenham 2-1 away from home. The Villans will be up against it this weekend, however, having not beaten Chelsea in any of their last seven meetings.

The Blues are currently sitting third on the Premier League table, and a win on Sunday against Villa will solidify their spot in the top four and secure their spot in the UEFA Champions League.

Aston Villa are rank outsiders despite their win over Spurs, with odds of +550 available with online bookmakers, whereas Chelsea are paying -200 to finish the season with a home win and thus secure a Champions League spot.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea match analysis

The midweek win over Leicester has put Chelsea in prime position to lock down third place, as they now sit a point above Liverpool and the Foxes heading into the final matchday of the season. A victory to finish the campaign would set them up nicely for the UEFA Champions League final next weekend against Manchester City.

Aston Villa simply do not have much to play for; they cannot finish in the top 10, and their spot in the Premier League next season is already secured. Villa forced a draw when these teams met in Birmingham earlier in the season, but it looks like their winless run against Chelsea is set to continue.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea betting tips

Both teams to score

Both teams enter this matchup on the back of impressive wins at their last start. Villa could not have been any better in their win over Tottenham, while Chelsea got some revenge on Leicester following their FA Cup loss a few days prior. Chelsea need to win this game to make sure of a top-four finish, but Villa will not go down without a fight in what we expect to be a high-scoring match.

Both teams to score


Over 3.5 goals

As we mentioned, this is bound to be a high-scoring affair, and with the star power that Chelsea possess, it could be a long day for the Aston Villa defence. Led by Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner in attack, we expect Chelsea to put a few past Emiliano Martinez in the Villa goal.

Over 3.5 goals


Same game multi: 4 legs @ +650

This matchup looks pretty straightforward, with the market suggesting Chelsea should be too strong for Villa. Chelsea have bigger fish to fry with the Champions League final coming up, but we still expect them to put a margin on the Villans to round out the domestic season.

Chelsea / Over 3.5 goals / Giroud anytime / Werner anytime
