Aston Villa notched up a very important point against Manchester United with a draw against the Red Devils in their last match. They now set their targets to grab the most points from the next match, which is against Chelsea. Assistant manager John Terry, a Chelsea legend, will be returning to Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United is a tough opponent, they were held to a 2-2 draw in their own backyard by the Villans. Now it is the turn for them to do one better and beat Chelsea, who have been already bogged down having faced back to back defeats at the hand of Manchester City and West Ham United respectively, and John Terry seems to be very excited about this.

Using his Instagram account, Terry took the opportunity to show his admiration for the likes of Jack Grealish and Tyrone Mings. His post read, “What a goal and performance @jackgrealish @avfcofficial @tyronemings! Well done boys Another big game Wednesday @chelseafc”.

It will definitely be an emotional return to Stamford Bridge for the former Chelsea defensive ace, who was also the captain of the side. He led them to glory in the domestic as well as European tournaments. He will be on point to provide the Aston Villa players with valuable tips. Hopefully, his advice can help them make it a match against the Blues in their own backyard.

The newly-promoted side has not been able to perform drastically well so far this season in the top flight and is currently three points and three places clear of the relegation zone. With the Blues on the ropes with back to back defeats against Manchester City and West Ham United, it could be a very good opportunity for the Villans to hand them an unlikely third defeat in a row in the Premier League.

On the other hand, Chelsea, who have evidently fallen off the pace in the race to win the Premier League title, would want to make a comeback. They will be looking to bounce back from their misery when they take on Villa at the Bridge. Frank Lampard’s side would rely on the home advantage as well. Despite that, they could not make much of it against the Hammers, as they got beaten by a single goal.

The Blues have been unable to replace Tammy Abraham up front, who has been sidelined with an injury which he picked up in the Champions League match against Valencia, that Chelsea drew 2-2 at the Mestalla. The likes of Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi looked far from effective while leading the line for the Blues and it is to be seen who is more preferred by Lampard when his side takes on the Villans in their next match.

Chelsea is currently at the fourth position in the Premier League table and will surely look to bring out their best in their upcoming fixtures. Frank Lampard has done a fabulous job with a young squad so far this season. He would not like to see all the hard work go wasted after such a great start to the campaign. On the other hand, John Terry would also look to make his return to the Bridge a memorable one. Now it is to be seen what fate holds for both the side in this needle clash.
