Chelsea Tickets Update : Aston Villa v Chelsea Tickets

Former Chelsea footballer Clive Walker was interviewed on the Chelsea website about the upcoming match with Aston Villa at Villa Park.

‘As a result of the draw against Tottenham, Chelsea are less able to rest players ahead of next Wednesday’s Europa League final having not already secured the top-four place.

‘So we have to play the best team we possibly can to assure that Champions League qualification and hope everyone is fit again to travel out to Amsterdam. Luckily Benfica are in a pile of difficult fixtures too.

‘Against Tottenham midweek there may have been some signs of tiredness in a number of our players for the first time in a while. Regarding rotation it is now about those who have and haven’t played too many games.

‘Rafael Benitez has already announced Frank Lampard will return to the fray at Villa. He has a terrific scoring record against them – 12 goals for Chelsea – and they haven’t kept a clean sheet in 20 league games. Frank is also one of those so experienced at closing out matches and finals at this end of the season.

‘The reverse fixture this season was 8-0 to Chelsea. That will have hurt Villa and a scoreline like that can scar players for a while. They won’t be looking forward to it but will want to put it right. However they need to strike a fine balance as they’re still not safe and know better than most what we can do.

‘They have improved a lot in recent weeks without really hurting a top side. It’s difficult when you’re a youthful team growing up in public. They’ve often played well for periods in games before losing their way.

‘Chelsea have several youngsters the same age but we have a winning formula and they’re alongside players who are very experienced. So there’s that balance which is easier to assimilate into when you’re starting out.

‘The key to the revival Villa have had has been the form of their three frontmen. He gets caught offside more than anyone but Christian Benteke has continued to score goals and Gabriel Agbonlahor has come back to being the force he was a while back. I’ve always liked Andreas Weimann (pictured below), right from seeing him in their youth team.
