Chelsea return to action and the Premier League TV schedule with a home clash against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
The Blues have started the season in fine fashion with two wins and a hard-earned draw against Liverpool to their name.
Thomas Tuchel has transformed his men in bona fide title contenders but they will need to win tricky games such as this one to remain in the hunt throughout the course of the season.
Aston Villa have picked up a mixed bag of results this term with a win, draw and loss to their name so far.
The loss of Jack Grealish may take some time to adjust to, but the early form of new boy Danny Ings, growing presence of Emi Buendia and return of Ollie Watkins should see their fortunes pick up in the coming weeks.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Aston Villa
Chelsea take on Villa right before two crucial clashes against Tottenham and Manchester City, and amid their opening Champions League fixtures.
Tuchel’s men want to fight on all fronts this term and the coming weeks will offer his squad a chance to prove they can do just that.
Villa are a very smart team led by a very smart manager in Dean Smith but heading to the Bridge this season will be a fruitless endeavour for the majority of sides and shouldn’t be ashamed of a narrow defeat.
