Chelsea will host the surging Aston Villa as they both try to climb the EPL table. 

Chelsea is currently seventh in the EPL and 13 points back of leaders Manchester United. That leaves them a full 11 points ahead of Aston Villa.

Aston Villa got off to a slow start in the EPL, but they are coming on strong. They have not picked up a loss in any competition since Nov. 17, and they are in the process of proving their road chops.

Aston Villa has won its last two by a combined score of 7-2, and both matches have been on the road. This all sets up for what should be an exciting match. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to view this match—one of which we have for you right here.

Chelsea hasn't played an EPL match since their 3-1 handling of Sunderland, but they are the club that needs to be worried about fatigue. 

The Blues have been globe trekking. They took a bad 1-0 loss to Corinthians in the final of the Club World Cup, which happened to be in Yokohama, Japan. That was just on Dec. 16.

They then took on Leeds this past Wednesday and rebounded by taking the match 5-1 to advance to the League Cup semifinals.

If they picked up any fatigue from their trip to Japan, they did not show it in that one.  

Despite Aston Villa's current roll, you have to like Chelsea's chances playing in Stamford Bridge. Of course, that didn't help them last year when Villa took them down 3-1 in true upset fashion. 

So check out the stream, you should get your money's worth.
