Expect A Low Scoring Clash As Huddersfield Bid To Secure Premier League Survival At Chelsea

Huddersfield can follow-up their remarkable draw with Man City by securing their safety in the Premier League with a point at Stamford Bridge this Wednesday evening. They are as far out as 19/1 with BetVictor to snatch three points against Chelsea.

Wednesday - 7.45pm OddsTips
Chelsea v Huddersfield   
Under 2.5 goals    Best Bet 8/5

The Terriers have lost once in their past four games, but have only registered one win in nine. If they are going to defy expectations, it would certainly not be by a considerable margin; to win by one goal is out at 20s with betfair, or a 1-0 win at 45/1 with PaddyPower.

Chelsea re-ignited what was looking to be a certain top four order with an excellent victory over Liverpool. For all the criticism that has been levelled at them, the Blues are on an excellent streak, with five wins on the bounce in all competitions. However, they haven’t beaten an opponent by more than a one-goal margin in five of their last league fixtures. Expecting this trend to continue, a draw with a -1 handicap on Chelsea is best with Hills at 16/5. Under 2.5 goals in the entire game is 8/5 with betfair.
Match Odds:

Antonio Conte’s men have kept three back-to-back clean sheets, and BetVictor back them at 3/4 to make it four with a win. A clean sheet for the Blues is at 8/13 with bet365. The last three games has seen a lead at half-time to be taken after the full 90. Chelsea at Half-Time/Full-Time is best 7/10 with Ladbrokes. 2-0 Chelsea is the favoured score, at 11/2 with William Hill.

Alvaro Morata is being lined up to return for Chelsea but with Olivier Giroud in such good form and somewhat surprisingly bringing a bit of uplift to the Blues in a rather uncertain season, it is debateble whether the Spaniard will be granted a start. Giroud is at 7/2 with PaddyPower to score two or more goals, or to be man of the match, which a brace may almost certainly qualify him for is better at 4/1 with William Hill. Last week, we backed Olivier Giroud to score with a header against Liverpool, which he promptly did, and it seems appropriate to back him again as first goalscorer- 7/w with bet365. For Chelsea to be leading after 15 minutes is 14/5 (Coral).

Chelsea v Huddersfield - Head-To-Head

Despite the plaudits manager David Wagner has garnered all season, and now particularly after the shock stalemate at the Etihad, his Huddersfield side have scored just two goals in their past eight matches. They have also won just three times on the road in the league this season. In the reverse fixture against Chelsea, forward Laurent Depoitre got the consolation goal for Huddersfield on the 90 minute minute mark, and bet365 offer double the odds of most for him to be last scorer in the game in West London. The Belgian is at 18/1. Jonathan Hogg, who has received eight yellow cards this campaign is a good bet to pair at 2/1 to be carded within the match (Betfair).
