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
