Chelsea would be aiming to continue their 4-match unbeaten run when they play away to Aston Villa on Sunday. Chelsea has won their last three Premier League matches, taking them just four points shy of the third place position with a game in hand.
The Blues have scored two or more goals in seven of the past nine matches across all competitions, and each of their last four games.
Chelsea has also managed three clean sheets in a row for the first time this season, in their games against Milan and Wolves. This is also the first time Kepa Arrizabalaga has kept three clean sheets in a row since April 2019.
The most attempts on goal Chelsea have got this season was in their last Premier League game against Wolves. They would be looking forward to continuing on that trend when they play Aston Villa.
Chelsea forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has now scored three goals from just four shots on target this season.

As we await news updates about Reece James’ injury, it is possible that the coach might not want to risk playing him on Sunday. In Reece James’s absence, Cesar Azpilicueta could take his place the same way he replaced him during the game against Milan.
Another option for Graham Potter would be to employ a wide attacking player to play in the wing back role.
Wesley Fofana is surely going to miss out on this one as he continues to battle with injury. N’Golo Kante may still be absent for the Blues. Carney Chukwuemeka returns to the club.
