How Will It Go?
14 points behind leaders Manchester City, Chelsea have struggled to live with Pep Guardiola's superstars, but the Blues are only three points behind second-placed Manchester United in the league, and they will be short-priced 2/5 favourites with Betfred for Tuesday's live BT Sport clash with Huddersfield Town.
However, Huddersfield have won three of their last four home matches in the league, with their only defeat coming at the hands of Manchester City, who struck late to win 2-1, so you have to feel that David Wagner's men will fancy their chances against a misfiring Chelsea, and the 10/1 with Betfair Sportsbook is sure to appeal to some Terriers fans.
But, following their defeat to West Ham on Saturday, Chelsea will be eager to bounce back with a positive result, but with Huddersfield's defence excelling in the topflight then it could be hard for Conte's side to grab all three points, and the 4/1 with bet365 for parity after 90 minutes is the most attractive bet.
Tight Game Expected
Chelsea lacked any sort of attacking flare at the London Stadium on Saturday, and with Huddersfield keeping a clean sheet at home at the weekend, then this could be a clash that is devoid of goals, and so the 21/20 on offer with William Hill bookmakers for there to be under 2.5 goals in the match looks a cracking bet for punters.
Also, the same firm are offering an eye-catching 9/4 for the game to be 0-0 at half-time, which could be a decent bet with both sides likely to settle into the game slowly from the first whistle before trying to open up in the second period of an intriguing Huddersfield Town v Chelsea contest.
Hazard To Strike First
Alvaro Morata struggled at the weekend against West Ham, so the 11/4 with Paddy Power for him to strike first is far too short, and so it's Eden Hazard that makes most appeal in the first goalscorer betting, and at 4/1 with Unibet is worth backing, while Huddersfield Town fans will look to Saturday's star Steve Mounie to break the deadlock, and he is as big as 11/1 with Ladbrokes to net first.
