Chelsea at Villa Park, updates, team news and betting

Gerard Houllier has said that Emile Heskey is as good as Didier Drogba but that he forgets how good he can be. I know, it doesn't make sense to me either, but a manager has to do what a manager has to do to get his players up for it and today he needs all the players up for it.

Chelsea are the Champions and at 4/7, clear favourites to win the League already, so this game isn't going to be easy, but nothing is impossible and it is only ninety minutes of football. A lot can happen in ninety minutes.


You know what we are going to do. As soon as team news is out, we'll let you know. We will also be Tweeting all day from this page and if anything happens throughout the day, we'll also update this page.

If you are not able to get to the ground or near a TV for kick off, you can watch the game here and no doubt we'll get links for radio feeds later and probably other stuff too.

Football betting

So, with nothing else happening until later today, there is nothing more for me to do apart from have a bet and today, that bet is on Wolves, Newcastle and Spurs and my tenner will pay out £105 if it comes in. As a side bet, I'm also going to have a fiver on Ashley Young to score. Odds for the match below.
