Aston Villa vs Chelsea

Liverpool’s win against Burnley on Wednesday means it’s far from done and dusted for Chelsea who sit just a single point clear of fifth heading into the final day. That does mean that a win here will be enough regardless of Leicester’s or Liverpool’s results, though that may be easier said than done with fans back at Villa park and, even more importantly, the return of Jack Grealish.

The Englishman returned to the starting lineup in midweek and it’s no coincidence his side went on to beat Spurs 2-1 to build confidence heading into the weekend. Indeed, since the beginning of last season, Villa’s points per game increase 54% when Grealish has started since the beginning of last season.

There’s therefore nothing to suggest that this won’t be a tight contest and with a lot on the line here for the visitors they’ll have a lot of pressure to deal with. Even without that added pressure though, Tuchel’s men are often involved in tight encounters, with only two of their 28 matches under the German so far being separated by more than two goals, compared to nine of Frank Lampard’s 29 this season.
