Chelsea 3 Aston Villa 3 highlights 2/1/11

Chelsea are still in a hesitant recuperation after the midweek scrappy 1-0 win over Bolton at Stamford Bridge brought to an end the Blues' worst league run for 11 years. Boss Ancelotti has defensive issues ahead of the fixture and with Branislav Ivanovic suspended it will mean he will have to put faith in teenager Jeffrey Bruma in the centre of defence.

Despite only making 2 starts since he joined the blues in 2007 he is preferred to Paulo Ferreira as when Ferreira was used as a makeshift centre half they crashed at home 3-0 to Sunderland, their biggest home loss since 2002. "It is the time that we can use Bruma,'' Ancelotti told Chelsea TV. He is a young player who is a very good defender. He has a lot of ability, he has played some games and, in this time, he is improving.

Villa will be looking to make amends for their 7-1 crushing defeat to the champions at Stamford Bridge last season and boss Houllier claims he has the faith in the players he has at his disposal to turn round the club's fortunes this season and steer them clear of relegation trouble. The midlanders have won only 3 of the 14 league encounters Houllier has overseen as reported bust-ups with several major players along with a growing injury list as damaged their momentum which is also in stark contrast to three top 6 finishes in a row when the club were under the guise of boss Martin O'Neill.
