Match Preview

Chelsea will face Villa in the 3rd round of the 2021/22 EFL Cup which will take place at Stamford Bridge, Thursday (23/09/2021) at 12:15 midnight Indian time.

Chelsea automatically qualifies for this 3rd round. Meanwhile, Villa qualified for the 3rd round after getting rid of Barrow AFC with a landslide score of 6-0 in the previous round.

Chelsea and Villa themselves have met this season, namely in the match week 4 of the Premier League on 11 September which took place at Stamford Bridge. In that match, Chelsea was able to beat Villa with a landslide score of 3-0 through a  Romelu Lukaku brace and a Mateo Kovacic goal.

Ahead of this match, Chelsea and Villa are both in very good shape. Both of them managed to win in their last match in the Premier League.

Chelsea successfully won 3-0 over Tottenham Hotspur through goals from Thiago Silva, N'Golo Kante, and Antonio Rudiger. Meanwhile, Villa also won 3-0 over Everton through goals from Matthew Cash, Lucas Digne (og), and Leon Bailey.

If you judge in terms of quality, Chelsea will clearly be more favored over Villa in this match. Moreover, this match also took place at Chelsea's headquarters.

However, Chelsea is believed to be doing some rotation of players in this match. This of course will provide its own advantages for Villa.
