Aston Villa vs Chelsea Prediction
Lampard’s men will be confident in visiting a relegation prone team and their recent dip in form on their away games will not probably affect their game post lockdown. Besides, the guests have been successful in their prior two visits to Villa Park. With Aston suffering from a poor form even at home, the Blues will have a splendid chance in taking all three points from the game.
The home win in full-time will be the best bet in the encounter. At 1.50 odds, it will be a safe bet to yield decent returns for the punters. Since Lampard’s strikers are not so shy away from home with 29 goals so far in 14 appearances, the tip for over 2.5 goals will come in handy for the punters at 1.57 odds.
