Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Aston Villa v. Chelsea Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Aston Villa embark on their second game following the restart of the season and, truth be told, they were happy to escape with a point from Wednesday's match against Sheffield United since the Blades had a goal disallowed that should've been validated. The Villains enter this game in 19th place of the standings with 26 points, and they have taken just one point out of their last 15 available. Chelsea, on the other hand, enter in a much better state with just one defeat in their last five contests and currently sit fourth with 48 points, meaning they control their own destiny when it comes to qualifying for next year's UEFA Champions League. It wouldn't be excessive to say the Blues are massive favorites, so they should be able to control the game with absolute ease.
