No match is actually a small challenge in the EPL, as even the smallest of teams can cause an upset. The reason why Tuchel should be worried in this fixture is given below.
During the summer, Aston Villa acquired the services of three notable forwards, Jamaican International Leon Bailey, 24 years old Emiliano Buendia and 29 years old Danny Ings from Bayern Leverkusen, Norwich and Southampton respectively. A fee of €38.40 million was paid for Emiliano, €32.00 million was paid for Bailey and €29.42 million was paid for Ings.
With these signings, coupled with the presence of Oliver Watkins, Villa's attack are capable of causing much troubles for the Chelsea defence, except Tuchel devices a perfect tactics to curtail their influence.
Not to forget also, experienced left back, Ashley Young joined the club this summer from Inter Milan on a free transfer.
