Chelsea vs Aston Villa: Bad news for Chelsea ahead of Sunday

Speaking of the 2023-2024 Premier League fixtures. Chelsea vs Aston Villa will come into play on Sunday at Stamford Bridge. Mauricio Pochettino will continue their fixtures in the league.

The West London club struggled in their last EPL, sharing points against Bournemouth. However, they would want to get back to their winning ways on Sunday.

Despite signing many new players during the summer’s transfer window. Chelsea are currently struggling in the Premier League, having been in 14th position in the league table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side currently have 10 players on the sidelines because of injuries. As a result, the West London club keeps dazzling unimpressively in the league.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa is most likely to be tough throughout the 90 minutes. So, the Blues may have to stand on their groud at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the West London club have received bad news ahead of their game on Sunday. And it’s most likely to affect the performance against the Villains.

Benoit Badiashile has sustained a minor injury in his recovery from a hamstring injury. Which means he won’t be available for Chelsea vs Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Unfortunately, the French centre-back has returned to individual training. However, he’s most likely to return to team training next week, which may make him available for Brighton Albion.

Benoit Badiashile has been on the sidelines since May due to a hamstring injury. Unfortunately, he won’t be part of the squad at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in Chelsea vs Aston Villa.

Also, Moisés Caicedo didn’t train with the team on Wednesday. The Ecuadorian youngster has been training since his return from the international break.

As a result, the Blues all-around midfielder is most likely to be unavailable against the Lions. Which will definitely affect the team’s performance from the midfield on Sunday.

Moisés Caicedo came back with a minor knock from the international break. Which made him miss the Bournemouth clash. Of course, the West London club missed him from the midfield.

Apparently, Lesley Ugochukwu will continue his show in the midfield. Because in the absence of Moisés Caicedo, the Frenchman will definitely start against the Villains.

Aston Villa are kind of composed and balanced in the midfield. Nevertheless, Mauricio Pochettino has enough reinforcements in the midfield, despite the possible unavailability of Moisés Caicedo.

Of course, the Blues have Levi Colwill and Axel Disasi at the back. However, a minor setback in Benoit Badiashile’s recovery is bad news for the West London club ahead of Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
