"Nightmare". Chris Sutton makes prediction on Aston Villa vs Chelsea

Chelsea will face Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday, October 16. The Blues are currently 4th in the league table, while Villa are 16th.

Graham Potter's side celebrated a 3-0 victory over Wolves last weekend, meanwhile, Steven Gerrard's side played a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest.

Ahead of the game, BBC Sport's football expert Chris Sutton has made his prediction on the clash. Sutton has predicted the Blues to win the game.

"I think the feeling among Aston Villa fans is that the jury is out on Steven Gerrard at the moment," said Sutton

"It's as much to do with Villa's style of play as their results - that's becoming a problem but he is hardly likely to change and be expansive against Chelsea, because they will be a nightmare to play against.

"Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is scoring goals and Graham Potter is showing how adaptable he is as a manager.

"Villa will be under pressure to win at home, and I can see the nerves getting the better of their players."


Chris Sutton's prediction: 0-2
