PREVIEW OF ASTON VILLA VS CHELSEA
The previous time these two clubs met at Villa Park, the home side took all three points after defeating the Blues 2-1in a game that didn’t get boring until the 90th minute on that particular day.
When Aston Villa and Chelsea met at Stamford Bridge, they shared the points, which was not a good result for the Blue London team, who went on to win the Champions League previous season.
This match has a lot of hype surrounding it because Steven Gerrard will be playing against a team with whom he had a rivalry during his playing days with Liverpool. It won’t be an easy match with so many memories from before he retired and began his managerial career.
