BLUES boss Jose Mourinho insists he's wary of the threat posed by Aston Villa ahead of tonight's clash at Stamford Bridge.
The Special One got his second stint in charge of Chelsea off to a winning start as they cruised past Hull City at the weekend.
However, Paul Lambert's side caused an upset as they stunned Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates.
But Villa's victory came as no surprise to Mourinho.
He said: "It's not such a big surprise because Aston Villa can do that to any one of us.
"Last season they had more points away from home than at Villa Park.
"They are a team with qualities to play away, to play the counter-attack game they played at the Emirates.
"They are a good team. It's not such a big drama, they can beat any one of the contenders."
David Luiz (hamstring) remains sidelined.
