Our prediction: Aston Villa v Chelsea

Villa enter this new game, fit and eager to go, while Chelsea could be forced to play a very similar XI of players for the third time in a week.

This is the Blues’ eighth game in December so far, while it will only be Villa’s fifth.

Villa not only has fitness on their side, they have a rising squad littered with talent and have looked strong in virtually every game since Steven Gerrard took over. Expect a close game.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 1-1 Chelsea (7/1 at bet365)
