Will Mourinho rest stars for the Champions League clash midweek?
Read more Chelsea FC news.
With Chelsea comfortably top of the Premier League table, a win at Aston Villa today will put them one step closer to the title…
GK) Petr Cech
Cech’s kept the best goalkeeping record in the top flight this term, and on current form he’s arguably the best in the top flight. He’s only conceded four in Chelsea’s last ten matches.
DR) Branislav Ivanovic
The Serbian fullback has been quietly exceptional for the Blues this season. He will have to deal with the pace of Agbonlahor down Villa’s left though.
DC) Gary Cahill
Cahill and Terry have formed the best defensive partnership in the country, and it’s a shame it won’t be able to benefit England during this summer’s World Cup.
DC) John Terry
With David Luiz injured, the English defenders will be given the nod, knowing a clean sheet will put their side in an excellent position. The Blues have only conceded 22 goals all season in the league.
DL) Cesar Azpilicueta
The Spaniard is Chelsea’s first choice left-back now under Mourinho, but with Ashley Cole troubled with an injury, it’s even more certain that Azpilicueta will start.
