Aston Villa's chances of another year in the Premier League are looking increasingly slim with the club having lost their past four matches, meaning a result against Chelsea could be a season-defining moment. 

Chelsea, on the other hand, are fighting to secure Champions League football for next season and are currently five points secure from sixth place.

Both clubs made massive losses last year, though Chelsea's £101.8 million pre-tax loss far exceeded Villa's £68.9 million.
