Huddersfield v Chelsea Betting Preview
Venue: John Smith’s Stadium
Chelsea suffered their first defeat in almost two months in the premier league as they were defeated by West Ham last saturday. In contrast, Huddersfield picked up another impressive three points against fellow newcomers Brighton. Huddersfield welcome another one of the big giants of world football to Yorkshire after recently defeating United and coming so close to snatching a point off Manchester City. The odds, again, are stacked against them for this one against The Blues but that shouldn’t affect Huddersfield’s preparation for the game: Huddersfield are going into nearly every game as underdogs which is perhaps an explanation into their impressive form and potential over-achievement. I can’t exactly see Chelsea running riot here so I expect a tough trip for the Champions to Yorkshire with a 1 or 2-0 win looking most probable.
Van La Parra is still suspended. Dvaid Luiz is doubtful.
Potential Huddersfield Starting XI: Lossl, Smith, Schindler, Jorgensen, Lowe, Hogg, Mooy, Kachunga, Quaner, Ince, Mounie
