Which of Aston Villa and Chelsea will achieve their Premier League goal on Saturday?

Trinity Road Stand - Aston Villa

The only Premier League match tomorrow gives Aston Villa the chance to seal their place in the top flight, whilst Chelsea can confirm a Champions League place with a win.

Whilst the FA Cup final is undoubtedly the main event on Saturday's schedule, the only Premier League game of the day does at least pit two sides with plenty to play for against each other.

Aston Villa host Chelsea in the lunchtime kick off, with both sides in good form and within touching distance of achieving their target for the Premier League this season.

Paul Lambert's team picked up a crucial three points away at Norwich City last weekend to take them to 40 points, but more importantly they put five teams between themselves and the final relegation spot. Wigan, with 35 points, can still catch Villa, but if they pick up either a win or a draw against Chelsea they will very likely guarantee themselves a place in next year's Premier League.

Chelsea also had a good week, winning away at Manchester United and drawing at home to Tottenham Hotspur to leave themselves one win away from a place in next season's Champions League. They will be desperately hoping to wrap that place up this weekend, with Wednesday's Europa Final followed by a final day match at home to Everton, in what will be David Moyes' last game in charge of the Toffees.

The reverse fixture saw Chelsea run out 8-0 winners, and Aston Villa will be desperate to avenge that horrendous defeat in some manner at Villa Park. That was also the last league match that Fernando Torres found the net in, although the Spaniard will likely be rested for the Europa League final as Demba Ba is ineligible for that game.

With plenty of teams having little to play for at this stage of the season, Saturday's game at least provides the prospect of two teams going hell for leather to finish their Premier League season on a high.
