Aston Villa vs. Chelsea starting lineup: squad information that has been confirmed

In order to play in Sunday’s home Premier League encounter against Aston Villa, Chelsea players must stay healthy.


Moises Caicedo recently suffered a knee injury while representing Ecuador on the international stage, but he expressed confidence that it will not prevent him from playing this weekend after missing the goalless draw with Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, Armando Broja, who tore his ACL against Villa in a friendly last December, will be evaluated on Saturday to see if he can return against the same opponents nine months later.


Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Friday, “We need to evaluate Moi [Caicedo] tomorrow.” He was exercising differently from the team.


“Perhaps we need one more day for Broja. Perhaps Armando can help. The number of players participating in the games is growing. Broja might participate this weekend, but it will be his first competition in nine months.


In response to a question about whether Broja could help Chelsea score more goals, Pochettino said, “We cannot put the blame on him. The team’s joint effort is required.

In addition, Marc Cucurella and Noni Madueke might play again for Chelsea versus Villa, according to Mauricio Pochettino. He has resumed his training. No, Noni.

It was a separate but small matter. Reece James is his trainer. I have seen Reece, [Carney] Chukwuemeka, [Trevoh] Chalobah, and others. They will soon begin practicing with the team.


Marcus Bettinelli, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, and Christopher Nkunku are among the players that are still absent for Chelsea.


Sanchez; Gusto; Disasi; Silva; Colwill; Fernandez; Ugochukwu; Sterling; Gallagher; Mudryk; Jackson make up Chelsea’s expected starting lineup (4-2-3-1).


Broja, Caicedo, Madueke, and Cucurella are in doubt.


Removed from service: Badiashile, Bettinelli, Chalobah, Chukwuemeka, Fofana, James, Nkunku, and Lavia


Date and time: Sunday, September 24, 2023, at 2 p.m.
