Aston Villa defender Ezri Konsa previewed the Chelsea clash on Sunday evening. He told Villa’s official website: “We know Chelsea haven’t been doing too well and they haven’t got the results they’ve wanted. We’ll look at that, see where we can hurt them, and look to get the three points.
“They’re a top side – everyone knows that. They’re in the top three and fighting to win the Premier League, so we know they’ve got a lot of good players.
“But so do we, and last season when they came to Villa Park, we beat them 2-1. We’re looking forward to it.”
Steven Gerrard has won four of his first six games as the Villa boss. His two losses have come against Liverpool and Manchester City.
The Blues have won only two of their last five Premier League games and will be looking to pick up the win to escape their poor run of form.
