Chelsea welcome Aston Villa to Stamford Bridge searching for their second win of the new Premier League season.

Aston Villa have had a much brighter start to the campaign. Unai Emery’s side, who qualified for the Europa Conference League this season, have claimed four more points than Chelsea in the opening five games.

They travel to the capital having lost in Europe in midweek to Legia Warsaw after being punished for several defensive errors.

Mauricio Pochettino has only overseen one win in the league since taking charge in the summer, which came against Luton Town last month, and is ready to complete a positive week on the training pitch with all three points.

“Always it is an opportunity,” responded Pochettino to questions over whether Sunday’s clash is a good chance for Chelsea to get their second win of the season.

“It’s a really important game for us. We need to win, we need to keep going, playing well.

“We need to be more clinical in front of goal and convert chances into goals. That is the most important thing in football because in all the data we are in top four. It is difficult to find some data where Chelsea are not in the top but after in front of goal we are in the bottom and that is why we don’t have the points that we deserve. Football is not about what you deserve, it is about winning games.”

Here are all of the details ahead of Chelsea versus Aston Villa in the Premier League.
