“We’ll look at that, see where we can hurt them…..” – Aston Villa’s Ezri Konsa fires warning to Chelsea ahead of boxing day clash

Chelsea travel to Villa Park to face Aston Villa in the premier league on boxing day.

The Blues won the reverse fixture 3-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season and they’d be looking to complete the double when both sides meet again on Sunday but that won’t come easy against an Aston Villa side now coached by Steven Gerrard.

Aston Villa defender Ezri Konsa is in confident mood ahead of the match and he’s fired a warning to the Blues ahead of Sunday night.

Speaking to the Aston Villa website, the England centre-back said: “We know Chelsea haven’t been doing too well and they haven’t got the results they’ve wanted. We’ll look at that, see where we can hurt them and look to get the three points.”

“They’re a top side – everyone knows that. They’re in the top three and fighting to win the Premier League, so we know they’ve got a lot of good players.”

“But so do we, and last season when they came to Villa Park, we beat them 2-1. We’re looking forward to it.”

Chelsea head into the boxing day clash off the back of a 2-0 quarter-final victory over Brentford on Wednesday and with the likes of N’golo Kanté, Jorginho and Matteo Kovacic all back fit, the Blues faithful won’t bother too much about the words of Ezri Konsa.
