Chelsea Prediction

In actual fact, Chelsea were not only humbled but outplayed by an impressive Bournemouth performance which saw The Cherries run out comfortable 4-0 winners, but the London club will now seek to avenge that defeat and Huddersfield could well be the team that The Blues take it out on on Saturday afternoon.

Following that humiliating defeat on the south coast, Chelsea have dropped out of the top four in the Premier League and replaced by Arsenal with today’s hosts now in 5th place and occupying the Europa League qualifying spot (albeit on goal difference).

Chelsea will now have to ensure they take all three points here, and as they’ve already suffered back-to-back defeats to Arsenal and Bournemouth, they just can’t afford to slip up here – not even a draw will be good enough for Chelsea in this match.

However, Chelsea do possess a solid home record that stands at 7-4-1 21/9 so they’ll be relying on their form at Stamford Bridge to get them out of this scrape, and I daresay the hosts will not only want to win this match but win by a handsome margin too.

 

Key-Facts – Chelsea v Huddersfield Town

  • Chelsea have scored 2 goals or more in 8 of their 12 home matches to date
  • Huddersfield Town have lost 10 of their last 11 matches in the Premier League
  • Huddersfield Town have suffered big losses at two of the ‘Big Six’ away from home

 

Huddersfield Town Prediction

Huddersfield Town are currently having to endure one of the worst sequences of results in the Premier League as their 1-0 defeat at home to Everton became The Terriers’ 10th league defeat in 11 matches which has left the Yorkshire club six points adrift of nearest rivals, Fulham.

A 0-0 draw away at Cardiff City means Huddersfield have earned just 1 point from the last possible 33 on offer and they now look certain to be relegated down to the Championship in due course.

Huddersfield’s away record reads a poor 1-3-7 8/21 and includes four defeats from their last five matches on their travels with their only success to date being a surprise 2-0 win at top half outfit Wolves, but aside from that, The Terriers have been on the end of some heavy defeats.

An early 6-1 mauling at Manchester City was followed by 3-1 at Leicester City, 3-0 at Watford and 3-1 at Manchester United, and with Chelsea still smarting from their embarrassing defeat at Bournemouth, this could be another long afternoon for the visitors.

Betting Tips Verdict

Chelsea must win this match and will also want to win by a few goals too, while Huddersfield already seem to have one foot in the Championship already.
