Key midfielder John McGinn is available again for Aston Villa after believing his season was over before the enforced break. How big a role he will be deemed fit enough to play in the run-in will be entirely down to Villains boss Dean Smith.

Chelsea star Jorginho is certain to miss out for the Blues as he completes a two-match suspension. Other than that, though, Frank Lampard has the luxury of a fully fit squad from which to choose.

What happened in the reverse match?

Homegrown talents Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount scored to give Chelsea a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge back in December.

Chelsea are odds on at 8/15 to win at Villa Park with the hosts priced at 9/2. The draw can be backed at 10/3.
