Chelsea V Huddersfield Team News and Predicted XI Plus Betting Odds

Mauricio Sarri on the sideline

Manager Maurizio Sarri will want to rectify things as soon as possible after an atrocious second-half display in the 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Wednesday.

The Chelsea boss should have a perfect game to get back on track with a home match against bottom of the table Huddersfield Town.

New Terriers head coach Jan Siewert didn’t get off to the best of starts after losing to a ten-man Everton side who were struggling for form.

The Blues will be hoping to collect three points, and with no new injuries in the first-team squad, they have the perfect opportunity to answer their critics. Marco van Ginkel is the only player missing with a long-term knee injury.

Huddersfield have a few more fitness concerns. Isaac Mbenza (calf) and Philip Billing (knee) will face late fitness tests ahead of the match at Stamford Bridge.

Abdelhamid Sabiri is out until the end of February at least with a broken collarbone while midfielder Danny Williams remains out of contention with a knee problem.

The bookmakers have Chelsea as odds-on favourites for the game. The Blues are 1/5 at Betway with a draw best priced at 27/4 with Unibet. A Huddersfield win is 18/1 at Betfair.

Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Huddersfield:

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Higuain, Hazard

Huddersfield’s Predicted XI:

Lossl, Hadergjonaj, Jorgensen, Schindler, Kongolo, Billing, Hogg, Mooy, Pritchard, Mounie, Kachunga

Predicted Scored – 2-0 to Chelsea
