Full Chelsea v Villa Match Build Up
Well, Lawro was wrong last week, he said 2-1 to Villa v Wolves, it ended a 2-2 draw.
This week he predicts a 2-0 win for Chelsea and is again wrong, we do in fact win this with a famous hat trick from John Carew. Too early to have drunk so much you think?
The BBC pundit says:
Chelsea's thrashing of Portsmouth in midweek was a tremendous way for them to bounce back after some disappointing results and it shows they are a top team. They will want to put more pressure on Manchester United by winning this one, and Villa looked a bit leggy against Sunderland on Wednesday. Villa like open games, that's when it suits them - but this one won't be like that.

MON's preview: Click Here The Villa boss says he will be shuffling the pack this time around. 'We have a few problems. I'm not going to go into any great detail. A lot of players went for scans yesterday and the news is generally upbeat although that doesn't necessarily mean that everyone will be fit for Saturday. In the longer term basis the players are relieved it's not any fantastic damage done. At this stage of the season, these things can occur obviously. They can occur at any given time but particularly now.'
