The form

Emma Hayes’ side go into Thursday’s fixture having comfortably beaten West Ham United in the WSL on Thursday evening. A brace from Pernille Harder and goals from Niamh Charles and Sam Kerr wrapped up a vital three points for the Blues as the race for the title intensifies.

Hayes’ side are unbeaten in the league this side of Christmas, having won three of our five WSL games since January.

Aston Villa, meanwhile, go into Sunday’s game with turbulent form. Ward’s side have won their last two consecutive away matches but have lost three of their last five competitive games, most recently away to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Chelsea Women vs Aston Villa Women head-to-head record

We have won all three of our WSL matches against Aston Villa, keeping a clean sheet in every win. Our only home game against Villa came in March 2021, a brace from Sam Kerr ensured a win at Kingsmeadow last season.

Our last outing against the Villans came in the FA Cup fourth round in January, two goals from Guro Reiten and a Pernille Harder penalty ensured the Blues safely progressed into the next round.

Next up for the Blues

It is yet another quick turnaround in fixtures for Hayes’ side as we travel to Everton in the WSL on Wednesday evening. Our next game at Kingsmeadow is on Sunday 20 March as we host Birmingham City in the quarter-final of the Vitality Women's FA Cup.
