Basically, Boxing Day is one of those games that hasn’t been ported. Chelsea had a lot of covid players, and because of this, the team played many games with no lineup, with no substitutions. Fortunately, the players are slowly returning to Thomas Tuchel’s squad. You have to understand that Chelsea played the League Cup with Wolverhampton.
At Aston Villa, the last game was dated December 14th. More than ten days have passed. As for this match, it should be borne in mind that physical form is important in such games, especially in December. Now teams have a very confusing schedule due to covid. Aston Villa scores very well, and Chelsea, if not take the last match against Wolverhampton. My prediction for this meeting will both score in more than two. Again, it is not clear in what state the team is, it is quite possible to see an interesting attacking game and, again, there will certainly be mistakes.
