Chelsea need to win to secure a top-four finish

Aston Villa made the trip to Norwich last time out and managed to come away with all 3pts. A 34th-minute effort from Ramsey opened the scoring in Aston Villa's favour after good work from Watkins. Watkins then turned goalscorer in late in the second half to end any hopes of a possible comeback for Norwich. Villa now sit 10th in the table and could move above local rivals Leicester if they better the Foxes Boxing Day result.

Aston Villa Predicted Lineup: Martínez, Tuanzebe, Mings, Targett, Konsa, McGinn, Chukwuemeka, Cash, Luiz, Ramsey & Watkins

Many expected Chelsea's trip to Wolves to be tight, tense and low-scoring, and that is just what they got. The game ended goalless and Wolves were the happier of the two clubs come the final whistle as Chelsea dropped more points on the league leaders and now sit 3rd behind Man City and Liverpool.

Chelsea Predicted Lineup: Mendy, Silva, Azpilicueta, Alonso, Rüdiger, James, Kanté, Kovačić , Saúl, Mount & Pulisic
