Premier League: Chelsea vs. Aston Villa Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Chelsea vs. Aston Villa Live Stream: Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea will try to capitalize on Aston Villa’s poor recent form when the two teams collide at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.
The Villains currently sit 15th in the standings with 20 points and have lost five of their last six league games. However, Gerard Houllier’s side will be boosted by the return of Ashley Young and Emile Heskey.
Wednesday’s victory over Bolton Wanderers was Chelsea’s first in seven EPL matches. The performance against Owen Coyle’s side wasn’t convincing, but it did give the West Londoners the much-needed confidence in moving back into the top four.
Meanwhile, Jeffrey Bruma will make his first EPL start for the Blues this afternoon. Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has turned to the 19-year-old Dutch defender to fill the void left by Branislav Ivanovic, who is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season.
“It is the time that we can use Bruma,” Ancelotti said. “He is a young player who is a very good defender.”
John Obi Mikel is set to miss out again with a knee problem, but Daniel Sturridge could play. Alex remains sidelined ,while Yossi Benayoun’s Achilles injury means he won’t see any action until the end of the term.
The match kicks-off at 13:30 GMT.
UPDATE: Aston Villa snatched a sensational 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, thanks to a stoppage-time equalizer from defender Ciaran Clark.
