Chelsea face Aston Villa in the Premier League League and the confirmed team news is in from Stamford Bridge.

Graham Potter‘s side are back in action on Saturday evening following the conclusion of the international break and Chelsea are aiming to go five games unbeaten in all competitions.

Wins over Leeds United, Borussia Dortmund and Leicester City in March, and a draw against Everton, clinched an unbeaten month for the Blues, who have seen their confidence and morale lift after a difficult couple of months.

It’s 10th versus 11th in the Premier League in west London and only goal difference separates the sides heading into the encounter.

Potter, 47, is aware of the challenge that awaits his side on Saturday, admitting: “It’s a very tough game against Aston Villa.

“We’re at home, we want to respond to the disappointment we had against Everton in terms of dropping points so we’re looking forward to that.”
