Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard has made two changes to his team following their draw with Nottingham Forest on Monday , Aston Villa vs Chelsea lineups | News | Official Site

Chelsea coach Graham Potter will look to maintain his unbeaten run with the club this afternoon (Sunday 16 October), as he takes the Blues to Villa Park for a Premier League clash with Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa are 16th in the league with nine points from nine games, sitting two points above the relegation zone. Steven Gerrard’s side are unbeaten in their last four league outings but have only won one of them. Last weekend the former Liverpool midfielder’s Villa drew 1-1 at Nottingham Forest, coming from behind to earn a point. Depending on how other results play out in the league today, Villa could climb as high as 10th with a victory here, but it will be no mean feat given Chelsea’s promising form.

Elsewhere in the Premier League:

The points were shared between Manchester United and Newcastle who played out a 0-0 draw with Southampton and West Ham also drawing though that one finished 1-1.

Arsenal are currently leading 1-0 against Leeds who have also missed a penalty. There’s 25 minutes to play in that game.

90+6 mins: Chelsea take all three points! Two goals for Mason Mount is enough to give the Blues the victory over Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa.

It’s another win for Graham Potter’s side who are still searching for that clinical and imposing performance. Chelsea remain fourth in the table but they’re now just four points behind Spurs with a game in hand.

Aston Villa drop to 17th after Southampton secured a point against West Ham.

87 mins: Young slides the ball into the box for Ings who backheels it into the middle but Azpilicueta is aware enough to send it behind for a corner.

Young jogs up the pitch to take it but his delivery is easily cleared by Thiago Silva.

84 mins: Sterling shimmies away from Mings and squeezes into the right side of the box before firing a shot straight at Emi Martinez who clings onto the ball.

Chelsea sense that there are more goals to be got here. Villa haven’t given up but there’s nowhere near the same focus from the home side as they showed 20 minutes ago.

81 mins: Mount’s impressive performance takes a dint as he collects a yellow card for a poor challenge. Villa haven’t created anything since the second goal went it, they’re running on fumes and are running out of time.

78 mins: The game is meandering along to a Chelsea victory at the moment as Aston Villa seem bereft of creativity. They’re penned in their own half and Mount takes the ball off Matty Cash before winning his side a throw in.

75 mins: Philippe Coutinho has also come on for Aston Villa who now have just 15 minutes to get something out of this game. John McGinn is the man replaced.

For their part Chelsea look pretty comfortable now. Young gives away a free kick and Azpilicueta knocks it across to Chelsea substitute Jorginho, he’s on for Kovacic.

68 mins: The scoreline doesn’t do Aston Villa justice who have been good today. They’ve just come up against a fine performance from Kepa Arrizabalaga and Mason Mount with an eye for goal.

GOAL! Aston Villa 0-2 Chelsea (Mount, 65’)⚽️

65 mins: Fantastic! At the other end of the pitch Chelsea win a free kick of their own with Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell standing over the deadball.

It’s Mount who takes it and he whips the ball over the wall before getting enough dip to take it past Emi Martinez and underneath the crossbar!

Chelsea double their lead.

Second half: Aston Villa 0-1 Chelsea

Kick off: Graham Potter has made a double change at half-time with Cesar Azpilicueta and Kalidu Koulibaly brought on to replace Marc Cucurella and Kai Havertz.

He’s done that to make Chelsea’s back line more secure. The visitors get the match back underway at Villa Park.

Aged 23 years and 279 days, Mason Mount is the second-youngest player to score 25 Premier League goals for Chelsea, after Eden Hazard (23 years 271 days).

Still to come today Liverpool face Manchester City in the late kick. Team news for that one is around half an hour away before the match kicks off at 4.30pm following the conclusion of the game at Villa Park.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten in 27 home league matches since a 1-0 defeat by Fulham in March last year with 20 wins and seven draws in that run.

They have also gone 13 Premier League home games without defeat versus the reigning champions, last losing such a fixture to Manchester United in December 2007.
