CHELSEA resume their Premier League season with a tough trip to relegation battlers Aston Villa.
Frank Lampard‘s men are hoping to continue their push for the top four and will be looking to take advantage after Man Utd failed to beat Tottenham on Friday night.
Meanwhile, the hosts have already got one game under their belt in the new normal, drawing 0-0 against Sheffield United last Wednesday.
Villa remain in the bottom three but within touching distance of their rivals – and winning home games between now and the end of the campaign could be crucial.
