Chelsea currently sit 5th in the table, and need a win today to move back past Spurs into the Champions League places.  Villa currently sit just one point clear of the relegation zone, so don't be surprised at all to see them close up shop and play for a point.  Good luck to Jeffery Bruma, the 19 year old Dutch international making his first Premier League start today.
