A huge game for Liverpool and their title ambitions. On paper, it is really their toughest game of their remaining fixtures now. Can they secure three points at this crucial stage? Chelsea also have a lot to play for as they turn up at Anfield. The Blues are battling hard for a top-four finish and can’t afford to drop points either.

Liverpool have had some scrapes in their last few games but they keep returning of the wins. They benefited from mistakes from Fulham and Tottenham to win the recent games against those opponents, and then they had to battle back from falling behind and Southampton in their last fixture. So they have been under pressure but they have so far handled the pressure, winning each of their last four league fixtures. It is a 12 match undefeated streak of form that Liverpool are currently on in the Premier League. They are on a four-match winning streak on home soil.
Liverpool home record in the top flight this season reads W14 D2 from their 16 matches played. The Reds have averaged 2.9 goals per home game. Their defence has also been bang on point with them conceding just 10 goals at home all season for an average of 0.6 per game. That having been said home and away Liverpool have no clean sheet in their last four played. 69% of league games at Anfield this season have made it over 2.5 goals, even with Liverpool claiming a clean sheet in 56% of home fixtures. Liverpool have been winning at the halftime break in 11 of their home games and they are on a 12 match scoring streak on home soil.
Each of the last three league clashes at Anfield have ended 1-1
Chelsea are undefeated in their last eight trips to Anfield in all competitions
There was a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge between them earlier this season
Five of the last seven meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
Chelsea are currently on a three-match winning streak although the level of opposition in streak hasn’t been the highest. The big thing that comes into question for Chelsea is their away form. They have won two of their last three on the road but looking back at their extended form the Blues have lost four of their last six Premier League away games, failing to score in any of those defeats. The two victories which they have taken in that sequence were against Cardiff and Fulham who are both in the bottom three.
Away from home, this season Chelsea are W9 D1 L6 and in that campaign, on the road, they have scored 23 goals which is an average of 1.4 per game. Chelsea have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last six road fixtures which is a huge concern for them heading to Anfield. Chelsea haven’t been involved in an away draw in any of their last 13 played. Chelsea have opened the scoring in nine of their road fixtures this season while six of their nine away successes have been by just the one goal margin only.
Chelsea have a lot to play for and they don’t have a bad record at Anfield either. However, Liverpool have been in tremendous form at home and luck seems to be on their side. They may well find a way to bag a precious three points in this one.

The Blues are still in the hunt for a top-four finish, but there is such a tight battle for two spots going on, between themselves Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester United. So there’s no margin for error and Chelsea will be looking to strike up their third straight league win. West Ham had a terrible home game last time out, suffering a tame loss against Everton. Read our Chelsea v West Ham betting tips for more.
West Ham 15/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 4th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
The Blues took a midweek 3-0 home win over Brighton to make it back to back league wins. Last weekend they took a 2-1 win out at Cardiff after having fallen behind in the game. That is just two wins in their last four league games though, home and away (D1 L1). The Blues have had a pretty strong season at home though with a W10 D5 L1 record this season. They are undefeated in their last six at Stamford Bridge in league action, with a W4 D2 record from that sequence. Even though they have been defensively fragile this season, their defence has been good at home.
Chelsea have conceded just an average of 0.6 goals per home game this season, earning a clean sheet in 50% of their fixtures. Less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Chelsea average exactly two goals per home game this season. Only two of their ten home wins have been by a one-goal margin. They have been leading at the halftime break in eight of their home fixtures. The Blues have opened the scoring in 11 of their 16 home games. Only Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal have better league home records than Chelsea this season in the EPL.
There was a 0-0 draw between the two earlier this season
The last two meetings in the EPL have ended in draws
Each of the last three have gone under 2.5 goals
Chelsea are undefeated in twelve EPL home games against the Irons
The Hammers were poor last weekend in a limp home defeat against Everton. West Ham only came up with three shots in the game. That was surprising because they had been in great shape on home soil. Away from home this season the Hammers have only taken the four wins (D3 L8) so they haven’t had the best of times on their travels. They have lost five of their last six away games (D1) so they have to be vulnerable for this London derby fixture. West Ham have scored in just two of their last six on their travels.
The Irons have averaged under a goal per game this season away from home, with just 40% of their road games making it over 2.5 goals. They have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per road game. They have managed only the two road clean sheets this term. Six of their eight away defeats in the top flight have been by a margin of at least two goals. West Ham have no clean sheet in their last seven away games. Of the goals which they have conceded on their travels, 61% of them have been after the half time break.
The Blues haven’t been spectacular but West Ham were really poor last time out against Everton on home soil. The Irons haven’t had the greatest of away seasons so Chelsea should be able to get the win on the board with a clean sheet.

Chelsea squeaked one out against the relegation-threatened Cardiff on the weekend, landing a controversial three points. The Blues fans were not happy themselves though, calling for the head of boss Maurizio Sarri. Brighton lost at home in an important clash with Southampton, increasing their relegation concerns. Read our Chelsea v Brighton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 31st, 2019 at 4:16 p.m.)
Chelsea looked ponderous and lacking a clinical edge out at Cardiff on Sunday. They were 1-0 down until Cesar Azpilicueta popped up with an 84th-minute equaliser, but he was clearly in an offside position. Ruben Loftus-Cheek went on to head a winner for the Blues in the final minute of the contest. That leaves Chelsea at W3 D1 L1 in their last five league games, home and away, but they look a long way from being a convincing side. Their home form at Stamford Bridge in the top flight is at W9 D5 L1 this season and they do have strong home form there against sides in the bottom half of the table.
Chelsea are W6 D1 in their seven home games against sides currently in the bottom half. The Blues are undefeated in their last five at home (W3 D2) and they have only conceded the two goals in their last five on home soil. Chelsea have only averaged 0.7 goals per game against them this term. Only 40% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals, with the Blues having taken a clean sheet in 47% of home fixtures. Only two of Chelsea’s nine home wins this season have been by a one-goal margin. Chelsea have now scored more goals in the final fifteen minutes of matches than any other side in the top flight.
Chelsea won 2-1 at Brighton in mid-December
The Blues are on a nine-match winning streak against Brighton
The Blues have won all four previous home games against Brighton to nil
Both teams have scored in just one of the last nine meetings
The Seagulls had a big South Coast clash at home against Southampton on the weekend. A win there would really have left a comfortable cushion between themselves and the drop zone. They lost 1-0 against the Saints though, which leaves them only five points clear of relegation trouble. So they have work to do and they have been having a tough time of things on their travels. Brighton’s away record stands at W3 D2 L10. They have lost all six away games played against sides currently in the top half of the table.
Brighton have averaged a goal per game on their travels, but have conceded at an average of 1.8 per game. 60% of their away games have gone over 2.5 with Brighton only taking one away clean sheet all season, which was back in a win over Newcastle last October. None of their ten away losses have been by a margin of more than two goals. The Seagulls are without a clean sheet in any of their last ten on the road. They have also been trailing at the halftime break in 8 of their 15 away fixtures. As a positive though they have scored in each of their last five away from the Amex. Only the current bottom three have a worse away record than Brighton do.
It should be three points going to Chelsea in this one back on home soil. Brighton have been struggling on the road and aren’t likely to get the win. However, with Chelsea remaining unconvincing, a low scoring win to nil for the Blues is a good angle into this game.

The threat of relegation still hangs over Cardiff. They did give themselves a lifeline last time out though with a victory over Bournemouth. They start the weekend three points from safety. Chelsea once again lacked any clinical finishing as they suffered a loss at Everton in their last league game, harming their chances of a top-four finish. Read our Cardiff v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 25th, 2019 at 7:38 p.m.)
Cardiff got a fantastic win over West Ham the last time out in the league. They needed that too because they had been on a three-match EPL losing streak. That was a home victory they got over West Ham, which leaves them at W2 L2 in their last four at home. At home this season in the league, Cardiff are at W6 D2 L8. In their four home games played against sides currently in the top-six, the Bluebirds have lost each of them. Cardiff have tallied 18 home goals but they have conceded at almost two goals per home game.
The Bluebirds have banked a clean sheet in 31% of their home games, which isn’t all that bad for a newly promoted side at all. Their last two wins on home soil have both been with a clean sheet, both 2-0 wins actually over Bournemouth and West Ham. Those are the only two wins on home soil they have taken in their last seven. 62% of Cardiff’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Of the goals which they have scored at home, 61% of them have been after the half time break. Cardiff have only opened the scoring in three home games. Bottom side Huddersfield are the only side to have scored fewer league goals than Cardiff have.
Chelsea earned a 4-1 home win over Cardiff in September
The Blues are on a four-match winning streak against Cardiff
Chelsea have scored at least two goals in each of their last four against Cardiff
Cardiff lost their one previous EPL home game against Chelsea
Chelsea’s poor away form over the second half of the season continued the last time they are out in action. The Blues suffered a 2-0 loss at Everton, despite having totally dominated the first 45 minutes. They badly lacked a finishing touch. Chelsea have returned a very poor W1 L4 record in their last five away games, not scoring a single goal in any of those away defeats. So they may be a little vulnerable in this one. In those four defeats, Chelsea shipped a total of fourteen goals. So their away slump leaves Chelsea at W8 D1 L6 on their travels this season. However, they have won all seven of their away games against teams currently 13th or lower.
Chelsea have returned 21 away goals this season, but have conceded 23. 73% of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals. While Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in a third of their away games, they have gone without one in any of their last five away games. Chelsea have been losing at the half time break in three road fixtures. Chelsea have opened the scoring in 9 of their 15 away games and five of their eight away wins have been by a one-goal margin. Five of their six away defeats have been by a margin of at least two goals.
Chelsea are not exactly trustworthy at the moment on their top-flight travels. But given their only recent away win was at Fulham who are also in the bottom three like Cardiff are, the Blues look the stronger option. Chelsea to win & both teams to score.

Everton have ended up having a season to forget and they have enjoyed very little cheer as of late with four losses in their last six league games. But then Chelsea will turn up with still a little bit of shaky away form behind them. Read our Everton v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8.10 p.m.)
The Toffees went down 3-2 at Newcastle last weekend in what was another disappointing result for them. That is six defeats in their last eight top-flight games now. Their home record is W6 D4 L5 this season but they have struggled for returns there recently. Everton have lost four of their last six home games (W1 D1). The Toffees have won only one of their last seven on home soil. In their last home game, they dug in to earn a 0-0 draw against Liverpool.
Everton are W2 L5 from seven home games this season against sides currently in the top half of the table. Everton have scored an average of 1.4 goals per home game this season. They have only scored in two of their last five at Goodison Park. They are without a goal in two there. Everton have been level at half time in nine of their fifteen home games.
The last two league meetings have ended in a 0-0 draw
Chelsea are undefeated in six against Everton in all competitions
Both teams have scored in none of the last five league meetings
Everton have won one of their last four at home against Chelsea in the EPL (D1 L2)
The Blues needed a late equaliser from Eden Hazard to collect a point at home against Wolves last weekend. That leaves them unbeaten in three at least in the Premier League. They did pick up three points in their last road game, which was a 2-1 success at Fulham, but the Blues were under pressure in the game. That win at Craven Cottage snapped a three-match losing streak Chelsea were on away from home.
They had failed to score in any of those three defeats as well. Four of the five defeats this season from Chelsea have happened against current top-seven sides. Their overall away record is at W8 D1 L5 for the season. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 36% of their away games and they have scored at an average of 1.5 goals per home games. 79% of their top-flight away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals this season. The Blues are without a clean sheet in their last four away games. Chelsea have opened the scoring in 9 of 14 away games.
The draw hast the most appeal in this one. Everton dug in there against Liverpool in their last home game and they can contain the lesser threat of Chelsea. The Blues are still struggling to find a different level as shown last week against Wolves.

The Blues start the weekend in sixth and need to keep some winning momentum going to push for a top-four finish. Chelsea have won their last two League games. They will be looking for some revenge at the Bridge on Sunday against Wolves, who beat them back in December. Read our Chelsea v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 8th, 2019 at 3:40 p.m.)
Chelsea have taken back-to-back League wins over Spurs and Fulham. That leaves them with three wins in their last four League outings. They do also have some pretty good home form running on their side at the moment having won each of their last three at Stamford Bridge. Overall this season Chelsea are W9 D4 L1 on home soil in the top flight. The Blues are undefeated in their last four on home turf since a loss against Leicester back on December 22. The Blues have averaged exactly 2 goals per home game this season, while they have conceded just nine goals in their 14 played at the Bridge.
The Blues have earned a clean sheet in 50% of their home League games this season, and less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Chelsea have conceded just the two goals in their last eight League home games. Home and away they have only managed two clean sheets in their last seven played though. The Blues have not been losing at the halftime break in any home League game this season. They have returned at least two goals in each of their last three at Stamford Bridge. Five of their last seven games (home and away) have ended up going over 2.5 goals. Of their nine home wins this season, five of them have been by a two goal margin. Only the current top two in the League have a better defensive record in the Premier League than Chelsea.
Wolves pulled off a 2-1 home success over Chelsea earlier this season
The Blues had won four in a row over Wolves prior to that
Chelsea have won all four previous EPL home games against Wolves
Both teams have scored in just two of the last nine meetings
It has been a tremendous season for Wolves up in the top flight but they collected a 2-0 win at home of Cardiff last weekend, snapping a three-match winless streak they were on (D2 L1). Wolves have recorded a W5 D4 L5 season on their top-flight travels and from their six away games played against current top half of the table sides, Wolves have lost just one, which was at Manchester City. They have picked up draws at both Arsenal and Manchester United, and collected three points away at Tottenham. That has been a fantastic return.
So they should be a threat in this one. Wolves have scored 15 goals in their 14 away games this season, and only 36% of their away games have managed to go over 2.5 goals. Wolves have struggled for clean sheets away from home having taken just the two. Wolves have not earned a clean sheet away from home in any of their last 10 though. 67% of the away goals that they have scored this season have been produced in the second half of matches. To their a huge credit, Chelsea are only one of four sides in the division to hold a better defensive record than Wolves.
Wolves are likely to put up a decent challenge in this one and it is worth backing both teams to get on the scoresheet, especially with Chelsea having been in Europa League action on Thursday. But still they should produce a home win and therefore Chelsea to win and both teams to score is a good proposition.

Fulham are showing no signs whatsoever in putting together form to have a shot at survival. In fact, they look as if they are lacking a bit of fight. Chelsea meanwhile recorded a much-needed win for themselves in midweek, taking out rivals Tottenham. Read our Fulham v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 10:34 p.m.)
Fulham put in another limp performance in midweek as they suffered a loss against Southampton. That is a four-match losing streak that they are on at the moment. They have lost six of their last seven (W1). The Cottagers are heading into the weekend eleven points from safety. Their home form for the season is W4 D3 L6 and they have scored a total of seventeen goals in those games. They have conceded at an average of two goals per home game though, and that has been their problem.
They have lost their three home games played this season against current top-five sides and in fact, all four of those home wins have been against sides currently in the bottom six with them. In their last three at Craven Cottage Fulham are W1 L2, conceding seven goals in those games. They have managed to take just the one home clean sheet this season in the top flight. Home and away Fulham have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last eight played. They have conceded at least two goals in each of those eight games in that sequence.
Chelsea were 2-0 winners at home over Fulham earlier this season
Chelsea are on a four-match winning streak against Fulham
The Cottagers have failed to score in four of their last five against the Blues
Fulham are without a win in eighteen games against Chelsea
Chelsea bounced back from their EFL Cup final defeat with a 2-0 home win over London rivals Tottenham in midweek. That was a big boost for them and it continued their strong home form. They haven’t been so great out on their travels through. The Blues have lost their last three away games, conceding a total of twelve goals without scoring themselves. So they will be looking for this opportunity against their local rivals to snap out of their poor away form. Overall this season Chelsea are at W7D1 L5 on their travels.
Chelsea have won all six of their away games against sides currently 13th or lower in the table. The Blues have averaged 1.5 goals per away game this season, and 77% of their road fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 38% of their away games, it has just been their recent form which has really gone downhill. Both teams have scored in just 38% of their away games. Chelsea haven’t been involved in an away draw in ten. The Blues have opened the scoring in eight of their road games and only two sides have a better defensive record than they have in the EPL.
Fulham look well out of touch and short of ideas and quality. Chelsea should be lifted after their win over Spurs. We can only look towards the away win cropping up in this one. Chelsea to win to nil will have its appeal as well.

Tottenham had a big slip up in the title race on the weekend as they suffered a shock defeat out at Burnley. The positive was Harry Kane made a return from injury and scored.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 7:43 p.m.)
Chelsea took a break from League action on the weekend as they lost at the EFL cup final against Manchester City on penalties. During the match, goalkeeper Kepa refused to be substituted so it will be interesting to see if he lines up for this one. Chelsea are sat in sixth place in the League heading into the midweek action, battling Arsenal and Manchester United for a top-four finish. The home form of Chelsea is pretty good in the League as they have posted a W8 D4 L1 record at Stamford Bridge this season in the EPL.
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last three Premier League home games, winning their last two which were against Newcastle and Huddersfield. Home and away though they have lost three of their last four Premier League games without having scored. Chelsea have not only taken one clean sheet in their last five played, home and away. At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have averaged exactly 2 goals per game while they have conceded only the nine goals in their 13 home League fixtures. The Blues have taken a clean sheet in 46% of home games. Chelsea have not been trailing at half-time in any home games this season.
Spurs earned a 3-1 home League win over Chelsea in November
Tottenham are W2 L1 in three against the Blues this season
Spurs snapped a long winless streak at Stamford Bridge in the League last season
Chelsea are W2 L3 in their last five EPL games against Spurs
Tottenham’s Premier League title ambitions took a setback on the weekend. They paid a visit to Burnley and suffered a 2-1 defeat. They did, however, get Harry Kane back into action after his long-term injury and the England striker was the one who got their goal. The loss at Burnley snapped a four-match Premier League winning streak that Tottenham were on. Their away record still makes for pretty good reading as they are W11 L3 for the season on their travels. The loss at Burnley snapped a four-match winning streak away from home that Spurs were on.
There has been nothing wrong with their goal-scoring output on their travels as Tottenham have averaged 2.2 goals per away game this season. 71% of their road games have ended over 2.5 goals. Their last four away games have all gone over the goal line. Spurs had an easy victory over Chelsea when they met in November and they badly need a repeat of that to try and keep in touch with the top two. Tottenham have scored in each and every away game played this season. Also, Tottenham has been leading at the halftime break in nine of their fourteen away games. They have conceded 73% of their away goals in the second have a games and Spurs have opened the scoring in all but four of their road fixtures.
There are clear problems with Chelsea in that they are offering very little going forward. Spurs are likely to have too much creativity for them and the away win looks good in what will probably be a tight battle.

What a game we have on our hands here. Manchester City are fully back in the title race and they will be looking for revenge over Chelsea back at the Etihad. The Blues were the first side to get the better of the Citizens this season. Can they complete the double over them as they look for points towards a top-four finish? Read our Manchester City v Chelsea betting tips for more.
Man City 9/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
Manchester City raced back to the top of the Premier League for the first time since mid-December as they beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park on Wednesday. That made it back to back wins for them in the top flight having beaten Arsenal on the weekend. So they did have that extra workload in midweek compared to Chelsea ahead of this clash. The positive week leaves Man City with six wins in their last seven league games. At home this season they hold a mightily impressive W12 L1 record.
The Citizens have averaged 3.3 goals per home league game this season and all but one of their fixtures at the Etihad have gone over 2.5 goals. 62% have made it over 3.5 goals. Manchester City have scored at least two goals in all home fixtures in the EPL this term. At the back, they have only taken one clean sheet in their last eight home fixtures. But still, they have averaged under a goal per game on home turf this season. Both teams have scored in 69% of their home league games now. 64% of their home goals conceded have been in the first half of fixtures. Man City’s home half time record is W10 D2 L1.
Chelsea earned a 2-0 home win over Man City earlier this season
Man City won both league meetings 1-0 against Chelsea last term
Chelsea have two of their last three league visits to the Etihad (W1)
Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings in all competitions
The Blues put a resounding 5-0 win on the board last time out, getting the victory over Huddersfield. Gonzalo Higuain got himself a brace in the game. That was a response that they needed too having lost their two matches prior to that. Both of those defeats were on the road at Arsenal and then at Bournemouth. So the Blues are not carrying away form into this one. Away from home, this season Chelsea have posted a W7 D1 L4 record. All four defeats have been at sides currently in the top half of the table. If you look back a little further into Chelsea’s road form it is W3 L4 in their last seven.
Chelsea have averaged 1.6 goals per away game this season and 75% of their away fixtures have ended up over 2.5 goals. In total, the Blues have earned a clean sheet in 42% of their road games. Of this season’s goals which they have conceded away from home, 64% have come against them in the second half of fixtures. Four of their six wins out on the road have been by a one-goal margin. The Blues have scored first in eight of their twelve road games and Man City are only one of two sides in the league with a better defensive record than Chelsea.
Manchester City have to be backed to get some home revenge over the Blues. There have been vulnerabilities with Chelsea and who better to expose them than Manchester City? Man City to win & both teams to score.

Chelsea had a miserable time of things on Wednesday night as they were smashed by Bournemouth. Once again it was a lot of possession and no end product for the Blues. They will be hoping to turn around their fortunes at Stamford Bridge on the weekend as they play bottom side Huddersfield. Read our Chelsea v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
The Blues could not get themselves going on Wednesday night as they suffered 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth. That leaves Chelsea on back-to-back defeats in the league now having lost at Arsenal in their previous game. So their battle for a top-four finish is becoming increasingly stressful for them now.
But they do get back to home soil where they have a W7 D4 L1 record on the board for the season. Chelsea took a 2-1 victory over Newcastle in their last league home fixture snapping a run of two without a victory. The goals in their win over Newcastle are Chelsea’s only goals in their last three league home fixtures.
So Chelsea are missing something up front. Overall this season they have scored 21 goals at Stamford Bridge, conceding nine. Less than half of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 42% of their home fixtures. But now home and away combined they only have taken two in their last eight played.
Chelsea have scored in just one of their last four games home and away combined. In none of their home games have Chelsea been trailing at the halftime break this season. Still, only Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool have better home records than Chelsea do this season. Chelsea have the fourth best home record in the top flight currently.
The Blues eased to a 3-0 win at Huddersfield the season’s first meeting
The Blues have won four of the last five meetings with the Terriers (D1)
Chelsea have scored at least two goals four of their last five against Huddersfield
The Terriers have scored in each of their last five visits to Stamford Bridge
Huddersfield had new manager Jan Siewert in charge for the first time on Tuesday night as they faced a home game against Everton. The Terriers conceded early in the game and were never able to recover even with Everton going down to 10 men.
Huddersfield’s away from this season is pretty bad at W1 D3 L7, but still, that is likely better than what they have produced at home. Across their sequence of away games, Huddersfield have scored only the eight goals. They have scored just one goal in their last four out on the road in the top flight.
Across their last five games away from the John Smith’s Stadium Huddersfield have collected just one point, which came in a 0-0 draw at Cardiff in their last road game. Huddersfield have conceded an average of 1.9 goals per away game this season. The Terriers have two clean sheets on their travels.
Overall home and away it is an 11 match winless streak that Huddersfield are on in the top flight and from their 11 away games so far they have been losing at the halftime break in five of them. Surprisingly though even though they are bottom of the league they don’t have the worst away record. Cardiff and Fulham have done worse than they have on their travels. Huddersfield though are the lowest scoring side in the top flight by some distance.
Chelsea should record a comfortable home victory in this one and strengthen their shot at getting back into the race for a top-four finish. We have to have a serious look at the Chelsea to win to nil option.
