Chelsea are lying close to the relegation zone after eight rounds played in the English Premier League with two victories, two draws and four defeats. Mourinho is under pressure to deliver results but the club still supports and believes in him. Their last league game ended in a humiliating 1-3 home defeat against Southampton and Mourinho has been criticized for his team selection. As such, he is expected to make some changes today and bring some of the less used players in the starting line up. Courtois (3/0, first goalkeeper) and Ivanovic (8/0 d) will miss out.
Aston Villa are lying in the relegation zone after eight rounds played in the league with only one victory gained, one draw and six defeats. Their last four games in the English Premier League have all ended in defeat and the manager has come under pressure to get results quickly. Ilori (0/0 d) and Sanchez (7/0 m) are both doubtful to play while Clark (4/0 d), Okore (0/0 d), Gardner (0/0 m) and Agbonlahor (5/0 f) will miss out.
Both teams have been struggling to put a decent performance on the pitch. However, on paper, Chelsea definitely have the better squad and the more experienced coach. Based on Jose Mourinho's records as a coach, it's hard to believe that this bad run of form will continue. They have almost all the ammenities (home advantage, better squad, etc) to win today and I will be surprised if they fail to do so against an out of form Aston Villa side.
