Huddersfield vs Chelsea : Match Preview & Prediction

Team News

  • Kasey Palmer is ineligible to face off against his parent club in midweek, but Rajiv van La Parra returns from suspension.
  • Steve Mounie should retain his place up front after scoring a brace at the weekend, but Scott Malone will push for a recall at left-back.
  • Michael Hefele returned to training on Sunday but lacks match fitness and won’t feature.
  • Antonio Conte is expected to make changes to the side that slipped to a shock 1-0 defeat away to West Ham on Saturday.
  • Álvaro Morata will reportedly not feature due to fatigue, which means Michy Batshuayi could be handed a rare start in attack. Alternatively, Eden Hazard will play through the middle with Willian and Pedro in support.
  • Antonio Rudiger and Victor Moses will also push for starts on Tuesday, while Danny Drinkwater will come into consideration if he can recover from illness in time.


  • Huddersfield ended a four-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over Brighton on Saturday and the Terriers are now five points above the bottom three.
  • Chelsea missed the chance to draw level with Manchester United in second after slipping to a shock 1-0 defeat to West Ham last season. That ended a seven game unbeaten streak for the reigning Premier League champions.
  • Antonio Conte will demand a response from his players but this will be a difficult match for Chelsea. Huddersfield have already beaten Manchester United at home this season and will look to cause another upset here.
  • Chelsea have only won two of their last five away from home in the league, while Huddersfield have won three of their last four at home. Can Huddersfield inflict further misery on Chelsea?
