VILLA AGAIN FOR UNDER-21S
Our Under-21s will be looking to record back-to-back victories when we take on Aston Villa tonight at Villa Park, a game which can be seen live on Chelsea TV.
The Blues secured an impressive 1-0 win away at Sunderland a week ago, but having suffered a 2-1 defeat against tonight's opponents at Cobham in our previous game, Dermot Drummy's side will need to be at their best if we are to head back to the capital with three points.
Villa, under the guidance of their former midfielder Gordan Cowans, are going into the game in a rich vein of form, having beaten Sunderland, Chelsea and Blackburn Rovers in the space of a week.
The recent meeting between the two teams saw Villa take the lead through Danny Johnson, before Connor Hunte - who scored the winner against Sunderland last week - equalised seven minutes later.
The visitors restored their lead midway through the second half when Danny Devine headed home, and while the Blues had a wonderful opportunity to secure a point right at the death, Milan Lalkovic chipped his penalty over the bar.
Coverage begins on Chelsea TV at 7pm, with Gary Taphouse and Clive Walker bringing you live commentary of the game from 7.05pm.
