Ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League game against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge, Aston Villa left-back Matt Targett has claimed Aston Villa isn’t afraid of Chelsea.

“These big teams, we are not afraid of them,” the 24-year-old told Aston Villa’s official website.

“You look through the results and anyone can beat anyone in this league and that is what makes it so exciting.

“It is the Premier League and all games are tough. It is another exciting game but it will be different from Manchester United.

“I think they have more quality so we have to be wary of them. But we have competed against Man City for 45 minutes, Arsenal and Tottenham and on Sunday against Manchester United.”

Aston Villa drew 2-2 with Manchester United on Sunday at Old Trafford.
