After topping the table at the start of the season, Chelsea slumped in form following a series of disruptions. They currently sit at third on the table – 13 points away from leaders Manchester United and seven points below current champions Manchester City.


Chelsea’s home record of four wins, three draws and one loss makes Stamford Bridge a fortress for Aston Villa’s record of two wins, two draws and five losses. Villa’s Darren Bent and Ron Vlaar are injured; injured Chelsea players John Obi Mikel and Oriol Romeu will stay in the sidelines.


Top Malaysia bookmaker 12BET.com rate Chelsea as favourites to win at 2.230. Aston Villa has a 1.5-2 (1.75) handicap advantage, so Blues punters need to expect their side to win by two goals (e.g. 2-0 to 2-1.75 for Chelsea) to win in betting.
