Chelsea vs Huddersfield Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 5-0.

The Premier League’s busy schedule continues on Saturday following on from a round of midweek action with top four chasing Chelsea playing host to relegation-threatened Huddersfield in a game the hosts are strong favourites to triumph in.

Predictions

These sides enter into this game in sharply contrasting runs of form with wildly ambitions for the remainder of the campaign.

Entering the final three months of the campaign, Chelsea remain in fourth place and remain in all three cup competitions, including the FA Cup Fifth Round and the League Cup final.

Things are going rather differently for the Terriers this campaign – the Yorkshire side are rooted to the bottom of the table with a measly 11 points from their opening 23 fixtures this season.

Huddersfield are without a win in 11 matches across all competitions – losing 10 of those fixtures – and find themselves a whopping 10 points from safety.

The hosts will be favourites to continue their strong form at Stamford Bridge this season – where they have lost just once – due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over Huddersfield.

The home side are favourites to win this game and it should be relatively comfortably – a 3-0 triumph for the FA Cup holders would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

The Spanish winger has netted in two of his three appearances against Huddersfield, including in the 0-3 success in Yorkshire in the first game of the Premier League season. The former Barcelona forward already has seven league goals to his name this campaign and netted in the recent 2-1 home win over Newcastle United. He’s 7/5 anytime at Royal Panda.

This among the best online betting odds for this round of action because, whilst it seems clear that Chelsea will win the game, the value is found in them making the difference in the second half. They recently recorded victories over Newcastle, Watford and Crystal Palace after being held at the break while a similar pattern was evident in the 0-0 home draw against Southampton. Four of Huddersfield’s last five games have seen the score level at half-time.  888Sport have it at 33/10.

Statistics

Head to Head

These two sides have met three times in the Premier League since Huddersfield’s promotion in 2017 – the Blues have won comfortably on both their visits to the John Smith’s Stadium, winning 0-3 and 1-3 respectively, although Huddersfield held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge during their visit last May.

Stats

  • Huddersfield’s only victory away from home this season in the Premier League was a 0-2 victory at Wolves, while they have collected just six points from 11 games on the road – the third worst record in the division.
  • The Terriers have netted just 13 league goals this campaign – at least six fewer than any other side although four teams have conceded more than their 40 goals to date.
  • Chelsea have lost just one of their 12 home league games to date, winning seven and collecting 25 points in the process – the division’s fourth strongest record.
  • Maurizio Sarri’s side are three points clear of Arsenal but four points behind third-placed Tottenham, so a top four spot appears to be their aim for the season.
