The anticipated Chelsea lineup for their upcoming clash against Aston Villa suggests several noteworthy changes. This includes the return of two players from injuries.

Chelsea’s Predicted XI

Robert Sanchez will most likely feature in goal for Chelsea. The defensive quartet might consist of Malo Gusto, Axel Disasi, Thiago Silva, and Ben Chilwell. In midfield, the trio of Enzo Fernandez, Conor Gallagher, and the potentially fit-again Moises Caicedo. Up front, Chelsea is likely to deploy Raheem Sterling, Nicolas Jackson, and Noni Madueke. Madueke has recovered from a muscular complaint.

However, Chelsea face a series of injury concerns, with Moises Caicedo‘s availability still in doubt. Carney Chukwuemeka is sidelined due to a knee issue. Romeo Lavia will remain out of action until October. The Club has slated Reece James for a return later next month. Players like Armando Broja, Benoit Badiashile, and Trevor Chalobah may be in contention but are less likely to start. The club expects Christopher Nkunku and Wesley Fofana to be unavailable until the new year.

Aston Villa’s Predicted XI

Meanwhile, Aston Villa is grappling with their own set of injury challenges. Their predicted lineup features Emiliano Martinez in goal. The defensive lineup comprised Matty Cash, Ezri Konsa, Pau Torres, and Lucas Digne. In midfield, Boubacar Kamara, Douglas Luiz, John McGinn, Moussa Diaby, and Nicolo Zaniolo will start. Ollie Watkins will be leading the attack.

Aston Villa‘s injury concerns include Tyrone Mings and Emi Buendia. Both are dealing with serious knee injuries and are expected to face an extended period on the sidelines. Tim Iroegbunam is also unavailable. Jacob Ramsey is a week or two away from returning after suffering a broken metatarsal. Diego Carlos is an injury doubt due to a hamstring issue.
