After getting a well-deserved draw at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, belief in the Villa squad will be high heading into the clash with the Blues, but they will be without a couple of first-team players for the trip.
"It fell to me - and me and Tammy spoke about that, that he would set me up if he didn't have space". "I think we've had a pretty good start because a lot of people maybe expected otherwise but I think we've done pretty well". We come out with the same energy wherever we play.
According to The Athletic, Chilwell is Chelsea's "number one target", although they are also considering alternatives, with Lampard having been unconvinced by current options Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso. "I'm happy but I want more".
"I feel that we can be as good as teams like Chelsea".
Chelsea struggled to build on their breakthrough, though, and they were punished shortly before the interval.
Abraham, who scored 26 goals while on loan at Villa Park last season as he helped the club win promotion, didn't celebrate his strike.
Abraham's return from the hip injury that ruled him out of the West Ham game made Chelsea a far more incisive unit and the youngster broke the deadlock in the 24th minute.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard called his former team-mate John Terry a "legend" as the ex-defender returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time on Wednesday. "It's hard when you come back to a club you feel so much for and vice versa and you're working and part of another club".
"I'm glad John had his moment here and got his applause".
