Betting Tips for the game
Chelsea had to go through the biggest league defeat in 23 years after a 4-0 loss against Bournemouth in the midweek action. This result leaves Chelsea with an away defeat in all three away games in 2019.
Huddersfield lost for a fourth time in the recent five games as Everton were able to snatch a 1-0 victory at the John Smith’s Stadium. As a result, manager Jan Siewert started his reign with a defeat.
The reverse fixture back in August witnessed the Chelsea team using Maurizio Sarri’s fresh ideas to register a comfortable 3-0 victory in the first game of the campaign. Huddersfield were able to grab a 1-1 draw against Antonio Conte’s Chelsea in their last trip to Stamford Bridge. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Chelsea.

Huddersfield may have picked up a point in the recent visit to Stamford Bridge, but the team has been quite poor of late. A strong case may be made for the visitors to get something out of the game, as the hosts have just suffered a huge league defeat. However, Sarri has been unable to lift his players only in away matches, as results at Stamford Bridge have been quite good. Our preview would pick a victory for the Blues.

Correct Score odds
The contrast between Chelsea’s defensive form in home and away games cannot be any bigger. The blues have conceded just two goals in the last six matches at Stamford Bridge, while this number swells to an incredible 10 goals in the last six away games. Faced against a strong defensive home record, Huddersfield are expected to go defensive. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Chelsea, who have not been making the most of possession.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Chelsea have struggled to penetrate past opposition even when they have more than 65% of the ball. Huddersfield will be aware of this problem within the hosts and manager Siewert may go with a defensive approach in this match. Even with Higuain in the squad, our total goals prediction does not expect a lot of goals from Chelsea and the match should have under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Gonzalo Higuain did not have a major impact in his debut against Bournemouth and he will struggle against a defence that is unlikely to offer much space in the final third. Eden Hazard had a disappointing game against Bournemouth, but he has been quite good at Stamford Bridge. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Eden Hazard.
