Chelsea FCW team news: Following the huge 2-1 Champions League quarterfinal first leg victory of VfL Wolfsburg, the Blues may look to rotate ahead of the return leg on Wednesday. Still, Manchester City are directly in the rear view mirror and we can’t afford to drop any points.

Bethany England and Maren Mjelde won’t be included, as England continues to recover from a concussion and Mjelde is at the beginning stages of recovering from knee surgery. Niamh Charles has stepped into Mjelde’s role at right back in the previous two matches, and has done so impressively. It would be nice for her to get another match at the position, especially as she’s suspended for the second leg.

Chelsea 2-0 Aston Villa: Kerr fires Chelsea to victory

  Chelsea 2-0 Aston Villa: Kerr fires Chelsea to victory Aston Villa women were on the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline against Chelsea on Sunday.The victory meant Emma Hayes’ side returned to the top of the Women’s Super League after Manchester City moved above them with a 1-0 win over Reading earlier in the weekend.

Aston Villa : Chelsea 's talented attack could have a field day against what is the worst defense in the league, statistically. Villa has conceded 56 goals so far this season in 29 games but are coming off a fortunate cleansheet against Sheffield United. Chelsea were the more creative side on the night but could not beat David Ge Gea despite the clearer of the chances between the two. But how did each player perform in this one? Here are our player ratings for the match for every starter, substitute and manager.

Chelsea Women vs Aston Villa Women recent head-to-head record. Chelsea ’s first and only encounter with Villa this season was in January, with Hayes’ squad taking home a 4-0 win at Banks’s Stadium to reach 32 games unbeaten, the longest run in WSL history. The historic night began with Sam Kerr smashing home a half-volley after only three minutes. The Blues stayed in complete control throughout the match as Villa struggled to get out of their own half. A second goal arrived with Kerr crossing over to Bethany England, who took a firm header to leave goalkeeper Lisa Weiss with no

Fran Kirby and Sam Kerr’s connection continues to grow and is bordering on telepathy at this point. Their most recent combination proved Kirby has eyes in the back of her head as she found Kerr for Chelsea’s first goal against Wolfsburg — though Emma Hayes could give either or both a break between the Champions League ties. Guro Reiten, Jessie Fleming, and Erin Cuthbert are all fresh options for the starting XI. Ann-Katrin Berger was an absolute brick wall against Wolfsburg and may need to re-charge her superhuman abilities Sunday while Carly Telford capably fills the void.

Aston Villa WFC team news: January’s league match against Chelsea was manager Marcus Bignot’s first match in charge; a fairly rude way to welcome someone to the WSL. With a couple months now under his belt, Bignot has more experience with his team, though good results have been hard to come by. Aston Villa haven’t won a match or scored a goal since they beat Tottenham 1-0 in early February.

How to watch Chelsea vs Villa . All Premier League matches in this round will be covered live in the UK by subscription channel Amazon Prime. To find the relevant broadcaster where you are elsewhere, see the Premier League’s broadcast schedule pages. Aston Villa have the fourth-best record on the road this season, but the 3-0 victory against West Ham last time out bolstered Chelsea ’s position of having the second-best record on home soil in the top flight behind Liverpool in terms of points, goals scored and goal difference.

Aston Villa : Where rotation is a natural decision for Lampard after his side's losing run, Dean Smith faces a more intriguing balancing act as he attempts to keep his side fresh without losing the core of the team that has been in such fine fettle recently. Should Chelsea find their way through a defense that held out impressively against Crystal Palace even when down in numbers, they will face a goalkeeper who has continued to bolster his reputation as one of the Premier League's finest since leaving Aston Villa .

The strength of the team, relatively speaking, has been the defense. Recent meetings against Manchester City and Arsenal saw the Villains lose by “only” a combined 7-0. Goalkeeper Lisa Weiß and defenders Anita Asante and Natalie Haigh lead the team in minutes played and have been at the keys to their defense all season.

Goals, however, have been tough to come by. Aston Villa have only scored more than one goal on a single occasion since the beginning of 2021. Mana Iwabuchi arrived in January ahead of the first meeting against Chelsea, and has been the most consistent threat in attack. Ramona Petzelberger leads the team in WSL scoring and captain Marisa Ewers provides veteran experience. They’ll all need to be at their very best against Chelsea to give Aston Villa a fighting chance.

Previously: The Blues came away 4-0 winners back in January to set the all-time unbeaten streak of 32 matches in the WSL.
