Chelsea vs. Huddersfield / Premier League – It has finally come a time that the fifth Chelsea, which is only two points away from the placement in the Champions League, and 16th Huddersfield, which on the other hand has three points more than the relegation zone, play their Premier League match on Saturday night. In addition, the “Blues” from London are welcoming this match after a series of five consecutive wins, while they celebrated as guests in the fall of the championship as guests with 3-1 Begins: 09.05.2018. – 20:45 CET
All this tells us that the former English champion is now valid for the absolute favourite in this duel, especially since after that last series of four wins, they are again in the struggle for positions in the Champions League. However, they do not depend on themselves, because besides the victory in the last two games, where they are welcoming Huddersfield and playing as guests in Newcastle, they also need a blunder from Liverpool and Tottenham, which currently have three or two points advantage, while the Spurs also have one match that was not played at the scheduled time.
It is precisely because of this that it is hard to expect that we will watch the “Blues” next season in the Champions League, but as long as there is the slightest chance for such a thing, they will try to make use of it. And they showed it best during the weekend, when they celebrated with 1-0 at home over the Reds thanks to a goal by Giroud, so now we now expect the same lineup against Chelsea as it was against Huddersfield, especially because center-back Luiz and striker Morata are out of action due to injuries.
Probable lineups Chelsea: Courtois – Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger – Moses, Fabregas, Kante, Alonso – Willian, Hazard – Giroud
For the popular “Terriers” from Huddersfield we have already said in the introduction that they are still fearing for their survival in the elite rank, although they have even three points more than 17th Southampton and 18th Swansea after 36 matches. A lot of things will depend on the mutual duel between these two teams, which are meeting on Tuesday night, but it would be best for Huddersfield that one of these two teams win, because they would then for their survival only need one point in the home match with Arsenal.
But before this, coach Wagner’s players have this difficult encounter with Chelsea, which is struggling for placement in the Champions League, so their defence will be in great temptation, just as in the last round when they played 0-0 against the new champion Manchester City. However, the “Citizens” did not have any result imperative in the match, so the work of the “Terriers” was somewhat relieved, while we also need to add that they cannot count on the injured center-back Hefele, midfielder Williams and strikers Ince and Kachunga.
Probable lineups Huddersfield: Lossl – Zanka, Schindler, Kongolo – Smith, Hadergjonaj, Hogg, Mooy, Malone – Pritchard – Mounie
Chelsea vs. Huddersfield PICK
Of course, the fifth ranked Chelsea is a big favourite in this match, especially since they still hope they will manage to win placement in the Champions League, but on the other hand, the team of Huddersfield still has not provided survival, so we believe they will give their best at Stamford Bridge .
