Much of the focus will be on whether or not John Terry will return to first team action this weekend against Villa. Terry didn't fly to Japan for the World Club Cup, staying back at Cobham to work on his fitness. He travelled to Leeds in midweek but played no part in the game. Apart from Oriol Romeu (injured) and Mikel (suspended), everyone is fit and available for selection.
Chelsea head into this game fresh from the impressive second half performance against Leeds. Chelsea had ten shots on target in the second period alone and scored five goals. Our last outing in the Premier League was against Sunderland, when Torres scored twice and Chelsea won 3-1. After a disappointing trip to Japan, Chelsea need to get their title challenge back on track and cannot afford to lose further ground on Man United.
Our last meeting with Villa in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge saw Villa pick up a surprise 3-1 win. Chelsea had won just two games of the previous five games at the Bridge before that.
