Predicted Chelsea line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Aston Villa, Jackson starts
Chelsea welcome Aston Villa to Stamford Bridge for today's Premier League clash.
The Blues have picked up only five points from their first five league games, and are currently 14th in the standings.
Hence, the upcoming game against the Villans is already a must-win as they need to avoid losing more ground to the top four.
Robert Sanchez has played every minute of the league campaign in goal. He made a number of saves in the recent Bournemouth draw and looks set to start.
In defence, Mauricio Pochettino is likely to stick with the same backline from last weekend. Malo Gusto and Levi Colwill will start in the full-back roles with Axel Disasi partnering Thiago Silva in the heart of the defence.
Enzo Fernandez has been ever-present in the Blues' midfield since his debut in February. He is set to start and could be accompanied by Lesley Ugochokwu with Moises Caicedo doubtful with a knee injury
Further forward, Raheem Sterling and Mykhailo Mudryk are expected to start in the wide attacking roles. Conor Gallagher could play in the number 10 spot with Nicolas Jackson leading the line once more.
Predicted Chelsea line-up (4-2-3-1): Sanchez; Gusto, Disasi, Silva, Colwill; Fernandez, Ugochokwu; Sterling, Gallagher, Mudryk; Jackson.
