The Blues have failed to win their last four Premier League home games, their longest winless streak at Stamford Bridge since September 2002. If they fail to win on Sunday it will be their worst home run in the top flight since a 12-match streak between November 1994 and March 1995.
They have failed to score in their last two top-flight home matches. It is 250 minutes since their last league goal at Stamford Bridge, which was scored by John Terry in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool on 11 November.
Chelsea have won seven of the eight league games Frank Lampard has played in this season (W7, D1). Without him their record reads W1, D4, L3.
The Blues have used 20 players in this season’s Premier League, fewer than any other side.
Rafael Benitez lost one of 12 games against Aston Villa as Liverpool manager (W7, D4, L1).
Villa’s starting line-up against Liverpool was the youngest the club have ever fielded in a Premier League match, with an average age of 23 years and 309 days. It was also the youngest team picked by any club in this season’s Premier League.
They are hoping to win back-to-back league matches for the first time since May 2011.
Eleven, or 73%, of Villa’s 15 league goals this season have come from strikers – a higher proportion than any other side.
Christian Benteke has scored four goals in his last five league and cup games, while Andreas Weimann has netted five in six appearances.
