Chelsea vs. Aston Villa: Midweek fun in the Premier League
With Chelsea needing to take some time off from the Premier League to play Bayern Munich in the European Super Cup, they host Aston Villa on Wednesday.
Both Chelsea and Aston Villa enjoyed perfect starts to the season, with the former picking up a comfortable 2-0 win against newly-promoted Hull City, and the latter an unexpected 3-1 victory over Arsenal. They go head-to-head at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, with Villa hoping to win away at Chelsea for the first time since December 2011.
Villa's only new injury concern is Nathan Baker, who was withdrawn from the victory over Arsenal with an ankle injury. He could be sidelined with Yacouba Sylla, Chris Herd and Charles N'Zogbia, who all missed the weekend's match.
