The last time Huddersfield Town beat Chelsea was in the 1999/00 season in a league cup victory. The previous win for Huddersfield prior to that was in 1964.
Chelsea is yet to face Huddersfield Town this season in the English Premier League.
Huddersfield Town vs Chelsea (13th December 2017)
Chelsea vs Huddersfield Town (21st April 2018)
Head To Head
Huddersfield Town: 27
Chelsea is currently in 3rd position in the Premier League with 25 points. That’s 9 points adrift of Manchester City after just 12 games. Chelsea has been in good away form this season with 15 points from a possible 18. They have also won 4 games in a row and will be looking to build on that win streak.
Huddersfield Town is having a really good debut season in the Premier League. They currently sit in the middle of the table in 10th position. They have scored only 8 goals while conceding 17 goals, but scored those goals when it mattered the most. They managed to beat Manchester United 2-1 at home.
This game is cramped in a very busy December schedule. Chelsea plays 11 games over 35 days and will need to rest key players for the big games. That means some of the big names such as Morata, Hazard, Kante, etc. might be rested for this game. An injury to a key player will hamper whatever odds they have left on retaining the Premier League.
Chelsea should win this game easily by a 3 goal margin. The only thing working in Huddersfield Town’s favor is the home game advantage. Their recent run of games has been average, to say the least. Chelsea to win 0-3 or 1-4.
