Chelsea Full Squad Revealed For Premier League Clash Vs Aston Villa At Stamford Bridge

Chelsea will be going looking for a fast reaction to Boxing Day's baffling 3-1 destruction to Arsenal when they invite Aston Villa to Stamford Bridge this lunch time, kick-off 5:30pm. The Blues, who have won their last six Premier League gatherings with Villa, endured a third thrashing in their last four trips against the Gunners, as they produce a dull execution to hand Arsenal a simple re-visitation of winning ways. 

When Tammy Abraham got his third objective in his last two matches with five minutes remaining, objectives from Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka and Bukayo Saka had just fixed the focuses for Mikel Arteta's side. It was a hopeless appearing from the west London club, who indeed missed the occasion to move once again into the main four. 

After a particularly level execution it was straightforward lead trainer Frank Lampard's dissatisfaction following the full-time whistle, with the Blues head tearing into his players, demanding the exhibition was both "insufficient" and the "fundamentals weren't right." 

Lampard stated: "[It was] insufficient in the primary half. Second half was better however we had an excessive amount to do by then. "Insufficient on the nuts and bolts - runs, squeezing, running, speed of pass and attempting to play. Having come into the challenge off the rear of a 3-0 win over West Ham United, the Blues were required to follow that up with another solid outcome, particularly against an Arsenal side who were without a group win in their last seven before the visit of the Stamford Bridge outfit. 

In view of that, however Lampard didn't really accept that smugness from his players was the correct method to portray their presentation, he felt there was a "lazy methodology." "I don't know carelessness was the correct word but rather there was certainly a dormant way to deal with the principal half - regardless of in the event that you were playing Arsenal, who were in an intense second and have quality players, or any group in the Premier League," proceeded with Lampard. 

"You can't turn up with that torpid [approach]. I'm worried about what's at the lower part of it yet I don't know it's certainly smugness. "The way that issues is on the off chance that you come and play delayed on and off the ball you'll have a major issue attempting to get an outcome. 

"In this way, once more, you're correct - the message was clear. We needed to assault it in the correct manner however we didn't." With the visit of Villa going about as Chelsea's second game in only 48 hours, Lampard was in every case prone to ring the progressions to keep his players new, paying little mind to the outcome at the Emirates Stadium. The Blues supervisor will be without winger Hakim Ziyech for the 6th game in succession in all rivalries as he keeps on recuperating from a hamstring issue. 

Ziyech, however, is Chelsea's just sure non-attendant for the conflict with Dean Smith's side, who will appearance in the capital unbeaten in their last four matches without surrendering an objective. 

Despite the fact that the Moroccan is the solitary player Lampard will be without tonight, the Chelsea boss is required to turn his pack, which means any semblance of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, who missed a late punishment at the Emirates Stadium, Kai Havertz and Olivier Giroud could all guarantee beginning billets. 

Full Chelsea sqaud accessible to confront Aston Villa: 

Goalkeepers: Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Willy Caballero and Karlo Ziger.
