Chelsea vs Aston Villa preview: Will Lampard make changes?

Team news and stats ahead of Chelsea vs Aston Villa in the Premier League on Monday (kick-off 5.30pm).

Team news

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is likely to make a number of changes to his side for the Premier League visit of Aston Villa on Monday.

He was unhappy with the performance of his team in their 3-1 Boxing Day defeat to Arsenal and could respond by shuffling his pack.

Hakim Ziyech (hamstring) will still be missing and it remains to be seen if full-backs Ben Chilwell and Reece James feature having both passed late tests to start against the Gunners as the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Kai Havertz push for recalls.

Ahead of matchweek 16 in the Premier League, we take a look at some of the key stats surrounding the fixtures.

Aston Villa will be without Ross Barkley and Tyrone Mings.

Barkley has been out with a hamstring injury for a month but cannot play against his parent club anyway while Mings is suspended following his red card against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Ezri Konsa will replace Mings having recovered from illness but Trezeguet (hamstring) and Wesley (knee) both remain out.
