Mauricio Pochettino and Unai Emery have named their respective starting lineups and substitutes for this afternoon’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.

Both sides will be eager to put right their wrongs as the Blues are winless and goalless in their last two, whereas Villa suffered a humbling 3-2 defeat to Legia Warsaw on Thursday evening.

Chelsea, who have managed to win just one Premier League match this campaign, are well down in 14th place. Today’s visitors, on the other hand, are sitting confidently up in seventh position.

The last meeting between the two teams was back on April 3 as Villa ran out 2-0 victors, putting an end to Graham Potter’s short reign. Emery and his men will be hoping for a repeat today.
