Chelsea take the field at Villa Park 105 days since our previous competitive fixture against Everton on Sunday 8 March. Our previous longest break without a game during a season was 28 days, between 8 February and 8 March 1986, when the weather postponed our games against Arsenal and Watford.

Frank Lampard has now given debuts to eight Academy products this season, surpassing the seven handed out by Ken Shellito and Danny Blanchflower in the 1978/79 season.
Against Everton in our last outing on 8 March, Chelsea used three 18-year-olds – Billy Gilmour, Tino Anjorin, and Armando Broja – becoming the first team to field three players aged 18 or younger in the same Premier League game since May 2016, when West Brom drew 1-1 with Liverpool.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea Match Preview
After a three-and-a-half-month hiatus, the Blues are in match action once more as we seek to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League. With nine league games left, it’s all to play for, and here we have all the information you need to know on the game and how to follow it. Villa Park will host the fixture, which will take place behind closed doors with no supporters present because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Aston Villa vs Chelsea Lineup
Kepa Arrizabalaga is the first choice, Chelsea goalkeeper as he will in the goal post as Blues play 4-3-3 lineup formation against Aston Villa on Sunday.
That was despite Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Christian Pulisic being sidelined. All are now back and raring to go as – for the first time – Frank Lampard has pretty much a full squad from which to pick.
Especially welcome back will be Loftus-Cheek’s power and cleverness in the opposition half. Before suffering a ruptured achilles in a friendly game ahead of the 2019 Europa League final, he had contributed six league goals and two assists.
Those central midfield absences in March had allowed Billy Gilmour to step in and wow everyone with mature, high-intensity displays against the Merseyside teams, and Ross Barkley had hit a streak of form, scoring one goal and setting up two. Marcos Alonso was also flourishing, netting three goals in two league games as part of a new 3-4-3 system, before switching from wing-back to left-back in a reversion to 4-3-3 for the rout of the Toffees.
