Chelsea v Aston Villa

Aston Villa will be looking for the scalp of another London giant when they travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the Premier League on Wednesday.

The Villans shocked the bookies at the weekend as they downed Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium, kicking off the 2013/14 campaign in style and, more importantly, with three points.

Paul Lambert's side, though, will know the task they face in midweek, with the Blues having looked in deadly form as they breezed past Hull City in their opener on Sunday, while Villa will also have to put behind them the devastating 8-0 defeat they suffered the last time they visited the Bridge.

On the team news front, Mourinho could be tempted to hand debut starts to Marco van Ginkel and Andre Schurrle, with the pair both having made their first competitive appearances off the bench against the Tigers, while Romelu Lukaku will also be pushing for a starting role, having also been used as a substitute.

Juan Mata is facing a late fitness test after sitting out the opening-day win with injury, while new signing Mark Schwarzer will be hoping to pip Petr Cech to a starting role between the sticks.

For Villa, Christian Benteke is expected lead the line, having bagged a brace against the Gunners, while the only injury concern sees Nathan Baker facing a late fitness test after coming off with an ankle injury at the Emirates.

Lambert could decide to rotate his squad, though, with the side set to follow this week's trip up with a home game against Liverpool, completing a tough three-game period for a club who battled against relegation for most of last season.
