From Thomas Tuchel’s first game in charge of Chelsea, only Manchester City (51) have took more Premier League points than the Blues (45 – W13 D6 L3). The Blues also have the meanest defence in that run (excluding the promoted sides) with just 14 goals conceded. Chelsea has lost just one of their last 16 home league games against Aston Villa (W11 D4), going down 3-1 in December 2011.
Aston Villa won their last Premier League meeting with Chelsea, winning 2-1 on the final day of last season. They’ve not won consecutive league games against the Blues since October 1993 under Ron Atkinson and also Chelsea has won 599 Premier League games (D274 L244) and would become the second team to reach 600 in the competition with a victory here (Manchester United, 689).
Two of Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel’s three Premier League defeats have been in home games, with the other coming away against Aston Villa. The last Chelsea boss to lose consecutive league games against the Villans was Bobby Campbell in 1990.
