Watch Chelsea vs Aston Villa Carabao Cup live: Start time and preview

Chelsea host Aston Villa in the third round of the Carabao Cup, 10 days after the Blues thrashed Villa 3-0 in the Premier League.

Chelsea commence their Carabao Cup campaign with a third round fixture against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge. The Blues currently sit atop the Premier League table having conceded just 1 goal in 5 matches under German manager Thomas Tuchel.

One step in their climb to the top came when they hammered Aston Villa 3-0 last week at Stamford Bridge. Statistically the match was closer than the scoreline suggested, but Romelu Lukaku’s brace proved the difference.

Villa, who were runners-up to Manchester City in this competition 2 seasons ago, bounced back from that defeat to Chelsea to down Everton last Saturday. Both of these teams have won this competition 5 times apiece.

Who will win Chelsea v Aston Villa?

Thomas Tuchel has arguably the deepest squad in English soccer and we imagine he will rotate it heavily in this contest with up to a dozen changes. Edouard Mendy and Christian Pulisic would be doubtful given they missed the win over Tottenham earlier this week, but they will field a very strong starting XI all the same.

Defender Marcos Alonso is enjoying a fine start to the season as a regular starter. He credited the team’s ability to rotate this season in what looms as a long and gruelling campaign, fresh from winning the Champions League last season.

Villa don’t possess the same depth as Chelsea but do have a strong core of 15–17 names at the top and should be competitive again here. We sense a few class moments will separate the teams. Chelsea are firing in all departments right now and we think they’ll win this 2-0.
