Aston Villa travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening to take on Chelsea in the Premier League.
Thomas Tuchel is sweating on the fitness of Romelu Lukaku, N’Golo Kante and Kai Havertz, which unsurprisingly has had a number of Villa supporters talking on social media.
According to The Daily Express, the Belgium striker is set to undergo a scan on his thigh, the German has been struggling with flu-like symptoms and Kante pulled out of France’s squad for their World Cup qualifiers after suffering an injury against Liverpool a fortnight ago.
Who will be the biggest miss for Chelsea?
Reece James is suspended and Thiago Silva looks set to miss the game as well after a five-day ban was invoked by FIFA, so Villa could well be taking on the Champions League winners without numerous key players this weekend.
Villa fans react
@AVFCFaithful_ shared the news regarding Havertz, Kante and Lukaku on social media on Wednesday.
Here is what these Villa fans had to say in reply, with one describing the Chelsea trio’s possible absence as ‘fantastic’.
“Who blessed us?”
“6-0 Villa, Ings and Watkins hat tricks”
“Fantastic until you realise Kovacic, Pulisic and Ziyech come in”
“Let’s hope so”
“It’s coming home…”
