Chelsea is set to return to the England FA Cup today as they prepare to take on an in-form Aston Villa side at the Villa Park Stadium. The upcoming match follows a previous draw between the two teams at Stamford Bridge, leading to this anticipated rematch in the competition.
Eager to advance to the next round of the tournament this season, the West London side is determined to secure a victory over Aston Villa.
“Predicted Starting XI: Chelsea’s Lineup for Key FA Cup Match Against Aston Villa”
Goalkeeper: Djordje Petrovic.
Djordje Petrovic will be in goal for Chelsea against Aston Villa in the absence of Robert Sanchez who remains injured at the moment.
Defenders: Malo Gusto, Thiago Silva, Axel Disasi and Ben Chilwell.
Thiago Silva and Axel Disasi will be the main men in the heart of Chelsea’s defense line while Malo Gusto and Ben Chilwell play in their respective full-back positions.
Midfielders: Enzo Fernandes, Conor Gallagher, and Carney Chukwuemeka.
Moises Caicedo hasn’t been at his best performance recently so I think it’s only right he sits this game on the bench. Conor Gallagher and Enzo Fernandes can partner in the defensive midfield position while Carney Chukwuemeka contributes to the team’s attacking plays from the attacking midfield position.
Forwards: Christopher Nkunku, Nicolas Jackson, and Cole Palmer.
Christopher Nkunku is very versatile and can also play in the left-wing position ahead of underperforming Raheem Sterling. Nicolas Jackson to return to his striking position while Cole Palmer plays in the right-wing position against Aston Villa.
