Chelsea vs. Aston Villa: Confirmed lineups

New, comments
Jamie McDonald

Busy day for Chelsea, with U18s, U21s, and now the first team in action as well.  The youngest came from behind to win 4-2 earlier (away to Spurs; Tammy Abraham with the hat-trick), while the older kids just kicked off (away to Leicester).

But now it's time for the big boys.

No surprises from Jose Mourinho.  Let's hope there are no surprises on the scoreboard either.
