Aston Villa vs Chelsea LIVE: Premier League updates as Mason Mount strikes early

Potter on Chelsea‘s strength in depth

Chelsea manager Graham Potter will look to continue his unbeaten run with the club this afternoon (Sunday 16 October) when he takes the Blues to Villa Park for a Premier League clash against Aston Villa.

When Potter was replaced by Thomas Tuchel in mid-September, he drew his first game and has since guided the west London club to four straight wins – most recently a 2-0 win over AC Milan in the Champions group stage League this Tuesday (October 11). Chelsea edged out Wolves 3-0 in the Premier League last weekend and sit fourth in the table on 16 points, seven behind third-placed Tottenham with two games in hand.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa are 16th in the league with nine points from nine games and are two points above the relegation zone. Steven Gerrard’s side are unbeaten in their last four league games but have won just one of them. The former Liverpool midfielder’s Villa drew 1-1 at Nottingham Forest last weekend when he scored a point from falling behind. Depending on what the rest of the league looks like today, a win here could move Villa up to 10th place, but given Chelsea’s promising form it won’t be an easy task.
