The best football analysis today


They are hoping to win again after their last results, the 0-1 Champions league victory vs Manchester city.

In that game, Chelsea had 40% ball possession and 8 attempts on goal with 2 on target. The only player to score for Chelsea was Kai Harvertz at 42 minutes. On the other end, Manchester city had 7 attempts at goal with 1 on target.

It has been a rare occasion in recent times, that Chelsea have kept a clean sheet. In fact, Chelsea have been scored against in 5 previous games, giving up 6 goals on their way. Historical results aside, time will tell if that trend will be replicated today here.


In their last fixtures, Villarreal drew 1-1 in the Europa league tie with Manchester United.

In that game, Villarreal managed 39% possession and 12 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. The only player to score for Villarreal was Gerald Moreno. Manchester united got 14 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Edison Cavani scored for Manchester United at 55 minutes. The game was won 11-10 by Villarreal on penalties.

Unai Emery's Villarreal have converted a total of 10 times throughout their most recent 6 clashes. The total of goals that they have conceded during that same period equals 7.


Our selection here is for a close game with a 2-1 win for Chelsea when the full time whistle blows. There should not be much in it, either way.

Villarreal must be fancied to breach the defense of this Chelsea outfit, but won't be too much goals as expected in some of us.
