Chelsea host Aston Villa in a crunch Monday showdown available for fans to live stream online from Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea face a quick turnaround to recover from their London derby with Arsenal on Boxing Day when they host Aston Villa in Stamford Bridge this Monday.
The Premier League Christmas and Boxing Day fixtures are mounting up as we enter the second of three games per club between now and January’s FA Cup third round ties.
The Blues are unbeaten in the league at home since September and will hope to add another three points to their title chase here. Villa, meanwhile, come into this game having enjoyed some fruitful away form in recent weeks, including wins at West Brom and Wolves.
Chelsea have won each of the last six meetings between these two sides – a run that stretches back to a 1-0 Villa victory at home back in March 2014.
And Frank Lampard’s men will certainly be hoping to make it seven wins on the trot against the Villans come Monday.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Aston Villa
Chelsea have performed well under Lampard this season, with only the occasional blip on their path to challenging for the Premier League title.
And the Blues will be favourites heading into this clash, especially considering how they beat Villa 2-1 both home and away last term.
Villa will hope to catch a leggy Chelsea off-guard here but Lampard’s side know how to control excitable teams. The hosts should grind out the result and keep the pressure on their title rivals.
Our prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Aston Villa
