Chelsea's flight was delayed from Japan due to late-night take-off restrictions in Tokyo and they didn't return until Monday afternoon. They have a tough away trip to Leeds tonight and could be quite fatigued when they face Villa.

This fixture last season ended 3-1 to Aston Villa.

If you exclude the games against Man City and Man Utd, Aston Villa have not lost in their last 9 games in all competitions.

Generally the odds on Chelsea are 1/3 which clearly don't take into account the above factors.

While Villa have conceded an average of 1.77 goals away from home in the league this season those stats are skewed by City putting 5 past them and Southampton scoring 4. Excluding those two games from their away stats leave an average away goals conceded of just 1 goal per game while Chelsea are experiencing a bit of a goal drought when you look at their last 7 Premier League games they have scored 3-1-0-0-1-1-1 with just a single win in this period which has left them 13 points behind Man Utd (with a game in hand against Southampton).

Villa put 3 goals past a Liverpool team in their last match who had not conceded 3 or more goal at home in their previous 63 home premier league matches and coincidentally it was Villa who scored 3 goals against them before all the way back in August 2009.






Benitez is under pressure to deliver some silverware this season and has gone with a strong team against Leeds tonight which won't give most of the players sufficient time to recover from their travels:

Chelsea team to face Leeds: Cech; Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Luiz, Bertrand; Lampard, Oscar; Moses, Mata, Marin; Torres.
Subs: Turnbull, Cole, Hazard, Ferreira, Piazon, Saville, Ake.

Congrats to Frank Lampard who scored on his 500th PL appearance.

Was it like watching Brazil today or were Aston Villa just so poor that anybody would have beaten them?
