Jose Mourinho’s side missed the chance to put real distance between them and City, especially with the hosts reduced to 10 men.

Frank Lampard equalised for Manchester City, cancelling out Andre Schurrle’s opener, to earn his new side a point against his former employers.

Aston Villa themselves lost for the first time this season, going down 3-0 at home to Arsenal.

Villa made the better start to the match, however an amazing spell before the half-time break turned the game.

Within six minutes Arsenal scored three times through Mesut Ozil, Danny Welbeck and an own goal from Aly Cissokho to earn the win.

Last season’s fixture saw Branislav Ivanovic score a second half winner in a hard fought fixture for the Blues.

Aston Villa beat Chelsea in the reverse meeting, with Fabian Delph scoring a superb winner to cap a fine individual display.

Team news
Jose Mourinho may opt to rotate his squad, with one eye on their key Champions League group stage match with Sporting in midweek.

Ramires is likely to feature, meaning Cesc Fabregas will be allowed to push further forward and closer to Diego Costa.

Felipe Luis may get a first league start, with Cesar Azpilicueta to be rotated.

Paul Lambert will hope to have numerous players who missed the Arsenal game through illness back.

Carlos Sanchez could miss out, unless Villa opt to play a 4-5-1 formation, with Ashley Westwood set for a recall.

Captain Ron Vlaar is hopeful of returning from injury to part Philippe Senderos in the heart of Villa’s defence.

Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Courtois; Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Luis; Ramires, Matic; Hazard, Fabregas, Oscar; Costa
Aston Villa (4-3-3): Guzan; Hutton, Vlaar, Senderos, Cissokho; Cleverley, Westwood, Delph; Weimann, Agbonlahor, Richardson
