Team News:

Chelsea
Reece James and Ben Chilwell both made the starting lineup against Arsenal despite previous doubts over injuries, but the duo may be spared here with only 48 hours in between games.

Hakim Ziyech was ruled out of Boxing Day's defeat but could come back here, although the winger is unlikely to be thrown straight back into the starting lineup after his injury.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Emerson Palmieri, Kai Havertz and Callum Hudson-Odoi could all be in line for starts on Monday evening, while Olivier Giroud will also be hopeful of featuring from the off.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Silva, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Havertz; Pulisic, Giroud, Hudson-Odoi
Chelsea Premier League form: DWLLWL
Chelsea form (all competitions): WDLLWL

Aston Villa
As for Villa, Mings will play no part in this one following his sending off on Boxing Day, meaning that Ezri Konsa is set for a recall to the starting lineup.

Ross Barkley did not make the squad against Palace despite returning to the training pitches after an injury, and the Chelsea loanee is ineligible to face his parent club on Monday.

Smith will not want to make too many alterations despite the quick turnaround in fixtures, but Neil Taylor and Marvelous Nakamba are both ready to be called upon.
Aston Villa possible starting lineup:
Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Hause, Taylor; Luiz, Nakamba; Traore, Grealish, El Ghazi; Watkins
Aston Villa Premier League form: LLWDWW
