Gerrard will miss the game after testing positive for Covid.

While Chelsea’s recent form may not have been so damaging to title hopes in bygone times, the standards set by Manchester City and Liverpool in recent seasons have left Thomas Tuchel in pursuit.

Six points ahead, the Blues clearly need to recover.

So far, a Villa team is reborn under Gerrard. Although it has to be said that his side lost to both City and Liverpool, in neither game were they destroyed which could well be a problem for Chelsea.

Struggling to break teams up at the moment, it seems like a tough task. Slip in here and, while there is still so much more to play, it’s hard to see a way to keep the momentum going until the proverbial end of the campaign.

Kick-off date, time and location

The Premier League match is scheduled to kick off at 5.30 p.m. GMT on Sunday, December 26, 2021.
