Chelsea will resume their season with a visit to relegation-threatened Aston Villa at the Villa Park on Sunday.

Chelsea will look to boost their top-four chances with a win over relegation-threatened Villa with the Blues currently three points ahead of Manchester United who will face Tottenham on Friday.

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has revealed that he expects Chelsea to not only beat Villa but to score a number of goals.

“Chelsea have a nice three-point cushion in 4th place in the league. They have a number of players back fit and have plenty of young players who are getting better by the day,” Owen predicted for BetVictor.

“They’ve a manager in Frank Lampard who likes his team to play on the front foot and I can see them scoring a few goals in this one.

“Chelsea have won the last five meetings between the sides and I fancy them to secure a comfortable away win.”
