At the moment Thomas Tuchel’s team are going along extremely well especially with the boost from that weekend Derby win against Tottenham Hotspur.

Players to watch out for
Timo Werner – Chelsea
It’s been a long time since Chelsea fans have seen Timo Werner leading the line for the club. After the introduction of Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner’s role has been somewhat minimised. However, this is a perfect opportunity for him to shine.
Ollie Watkins- Aston Villa
This youngster has bundles of talent and can sure take Chelsea by surprise. He will be expected to be at top form if Aston Villa are to have any chance. Watkins has a good opportunity to dominate over the Chelsea defence.
Goalkeeper – Kepa Arrizabalaga
Defender- Cesar Azpillecueta, Axel Tuanzebe, Trevoh Chalobah, Ben Chilwell
Midfielder- Saul Niguez, Matteo Kovacic, Reece James
Forward- Ollie Watkins, Timo Werner, Mason Mount.
