The strong home Blues expect the bottom of the table from Huddersfield, who has won only once in a foreign country. Recently, there was at least once a draw in Cardiff for the battered club, which stopped a series of previously four away games. Defeats, half of which came without a goal. The attack is certainly the biggest shortcoming of the club. The offensive bite inhibition of the Terriers can be easily recognized by the previous 13-goal results this season – a value that is by far the worst in the Premier League.
Premier League Chelsea vs Huddersfield
The fact that this changed just when guest appearance at Stamford Bridge something seems very questionable, given the solid home defense of the Londoners. After all, with only nine goals conceded, they have the second best score after Liverpool. But there may be some hope – because the hosts collected an unexpected 0: 4 swatter last Wednesday at the Cherries from AFC Bournemouth. At Chelsea against Huddersfield, the tip is still on a home win including a clean sheet.
Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
The Blues celebrated last week’s entry into the final in the EFL Cup, where they will cross the blades with Manchester City in about three weeks. A victory that naturally raised the mood at Chelsea. This was also necessary, as previously the services of the club had broken a bit. Especially the 0-2 defeat on the penultimate round of the Gunners and thus against the immediate competitors for fourth place hurt. In the weeks before, Chelsea also lost for example at home with 0-1 against Leicester or had to settle for home crowd with a goalless draw against Southampton.
The jubilation over the finals is now completely gone again, because it was on the last day again a heavy damper. The team lost 4-0 at AFC Bournemouth last Wednesday. It was the highest defeat of Chelsea for over 20 years! In addition, fourth place went to Arsenal flutes.
The home record can still be seen, since the bankruptcy against Leicester in mid-December was the first of its kind; Chelsea, as mentioned, is the second-best home defender in the Premier League with nine goals. Also five clean sheets in twelve home games show that at Stamford Bridge hardly any gifts are distributed to the guests. Personnel Maurizio Sarri can also draw almost full, since only Marco van Ginkel is not available. However, the new signing of PSV Eindhoven has been out of action since the start of the season and has not played a match for his new employer yet.
Chelsea will also have to renounce the services of Álvaro Morata in the future. The 26-year-old Spaniard was loaned to Atletico Madrid this week. With five goals he was the third best goalgetter on the blues side. But the club has secured the services of Gonzalo Higuaín just over a week ago. The Argentinian comes first on loan from AC Milan, who in turn had borrowed from Juventus. Under his current coach Sarri, the striker already kicked with great success at Naples, which is why the British hope for much from him. Expectations that were not met, at least in his first league appearance last Wednesday night, where he was substituted in the second half against Olivier Giroud. This does not change the fact that Chelsea will be clearly favored by Huddersfield for a guessing win on the odds.
Expected formation of Chelsea:
Arrizabalaga – Azpilicueta – Ruediger – Luiz – Emerson – Kovacic – Jorginho – edge – Pedro – Higuain – Hazard

Huddersfield – Statistics & Current Form
Huddersfield Town AFC reached as a freshman in the past season, the 16th place, which the team narrowly escaped relegation. A feat that Terriers are unlikely to repeat in the current season. Rather, they are at the bottom of the table and the distance to the saving bank is already twelve meters. Judge it now a new coach. The job is completed by Jan Siewert, who inherited longtime coach David Wagner in mid-January, who, like himself, was former coach of Borussia Dortmund’s U23 team, but did not make his debut until the last matchday. A debut that failed. Huddersfield lost 1-0 at home to Everton FC, although from the middle of the second half onwards, only ten men remained on the pitch. The club has been without a win for eleven days, with no fewer than ten of those games ending in failure.
Little courage also makes the away balance before the match. Wolverhampton Wanderers scored only one victory over eleven out-of-town appearances. Especially the offensive impresses in the guest appearances often exclusively by their harmlessness. She scored just eight goals on foreign territory – a value that only Cardiff City undercuts with seven goals. In addition, five away games were completed without own scoring: only three of the last four league games. If you add the zero number at Bristol City in the FA Cup, there are already four of the last five away games without own hits. Against Chelsea Huddersfield is according to the prediction of the bookmaker, the clear outsider – only the least neutral observers should be surprised about these odds.
Expected lineup of Huddersfield:
Lössl – Kongolo – Schindler – Jorgensen – Hadergjonaj – Bacuna – Hogg – Puncheon – Mounie – Kachunga – Diakhaby

Chelsea vs Huddersfield Football Betting Prediction
Chelsea has lost its consistency in recent weeks. Defeats such as against the Gunners and last but not least the violent 0-4 defeat on the coast in Bournemouth show this clearly. Due to the high defeat on the last matchday even the fourth place had to be given to the city rivals Arsenal. But with Huddersfield now comes an opponent to the Stamford Bridge, which is in a playful way, completely next to him. The Terriers are Table Latter and the second season in the British House of Lords should be the last for the time being. The distance to the non-relegation places is in any case very large with twelve points. Also, the change of coach this month has not brought anything in, as the debut of Jan Siewert went out last Tuesday with a 0-1 at home against Everton.
Key Facts – Chelsea vs Huddersfield tips

Especially in the offensive, it hooks. How offensively weak the guests are, can be stated, among other things, that the best scorer of the club with Mathias Jorgensen is a defender. His yield is also a meager three goals. In Chelsea vs Huddersfield, the prediction thus includes a home victory of Blues without conceding. We see the fiasco on the last day as a slip-up and even in an undisputed crisis of form, the bottom of the table is simply too weak to be able to offer serious action.
