Huddersfield v Chelsea Premier League Preview, 11th August 3.00pm
The Terriers battled hard to keep themselves in the Premier League last season and succeeded. It was a good effort from them in the end and they will be looking to cause an upset in this season opener for them. Chelsea have had a tough time of things over the summer and there looks as if there is a lot of work ahead for new boss Maurizio Sarri who may struggle to get what he wants out of the squad that he has.

Huddersfield News and Form
The Terriers did fantastically well to get themselves safe at the end of last season. They picked up precious draws against both Man City and Chelsea inside their final three games of last season to help ensure survival. The Terriers collected a W6 D5 L8 record on home soil last season in the top flight and they were a bit short of goals, which was really the only thing to fault them over. They averaged 0.8 goals per home game last season and we don’t see their output improved drastically.
We are looking under 2.5 goals at bet365 for 17/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.) for our Huddersfield v Chelsea betting tips. There is a stat to back that up as Huddersfield’s last ten Premier League have all ended under the goal line. Troubling for them though they have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 home games in the top flight. Overall home and away they won just one of their last ten.
Chelsea News and Form
Chelsea look to be in a bit of a mess at the moment and if Sarri is going to turn the club around then that is going to take some time. So time is against him and the other thing is a lack of quality at the club. They look very short of quality across the back line playing the back four that the manager wants them to do, while they are crying out for a goalscorer as well with Alvaro Morata looking so short on confidence. We are going to take a punt on both teams not to score at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.).
We see this being a low scoring affair as Chelsea may well struggle up front. There hasn’t been enough done in the summer through the transfer market to change things and they are unlikely to put too much faith in their youngsters. So we can see a difficult season ahead for the Blues, especially early on as they try and get going under the new system. Chelsea did take a W10 D3 L6 record on the road last season but they lost four of their last seven games away from home.
Huddersfield v Chelsea Head to Head
Last season’s meetings in the Premier League saw Chelsea collect four points from their two games against the Terriers. They took a 3-1 win on the road before a 1-1 draw back at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are undefeated in their last four games against the Terriers but both teams have scored in each of the last four meetings.
Who will win – Huddersfield v Chelsea Predictions
Chelsea look a long way short of where they should be and Sarri’s tactics are going to take a while to kick in. There could be a decent chance to oppose a Chelsea win in this game and we are actually going to that by banking on the draw. The Terriers, full of new-season energy can dig their heels in against a light-weight looking Blues.
