Villa v Chelsea training pix: Squad set for final home game

Villa will run out at Villa Park for the last time this season when they face Chelsea on Saturday.

And Paul Lambert's team are determined to finish with a flourish in front of their home fans.

Check out the picture gallery of training.

The manager and his coaching staff put the squad through their paces at Bodymoor Heath ahead of the showdown with Rafa Benitez's team.

The players inevitably had a spring in their step following back-to-back wins over Sunderland and Norwich which have edged Villa closer to Barclays Premier League safety.

In particular, goalkeeper Brad Guzan was in high spirits after being crowned Players' Player of the Year and Supporters' Player of the Year at Tuesday's end-of-season awards dinner.

He was busy showcasing his shot-stopping brilliance during his session with goalkeepers Shay Given and Andy Marshall and goalkeeping coach Terry Gennoe.

The rest of the squad were given an intense workout by fitness coach Adrian Lamb before the footballs came out for some training drills.

Check out the picture gallery of training.
