Huddersfield Vs Chelsea Prediction, Team News And Preview As Maurizio Sarri Prepares For His Premier League Bow

MAURIZIO SARRI will make his Premier League debut when his Chelsea side travel to Huddersfield.

The Italian replaced his fellow countryman Antonio Conte this summer and has ambitions of guiding the club back into the top four.

The Terriers will get to see some new faces in action including exciting forward Adama Diakhaby but they know the odds remain stacked against them if they are to pick up three points.

Fashion victim

Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi is no stranger to some dodgy attire.

The Belgian is often pictured on his Instagram wearing a host of bizarre combinations.

His team-mate David Luiz even admitted that the striker has the worst fashion sense in the side.

Set-piece specialist

Aaron Mooy will be key if Huddersfield are going to snatch any points against the Blues.

The midfielder is responsible for their set-pieces, grabbing three assists and four goals last campaign.

Likely line-ups

Huddersfield: Lossl, Hadergjonaj, Schindler, Zanka, Kongolo, Mooy, Hogg, Van La Parra, Pritchard, Diakhaby, Mounie

Chelsea: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Alonso, Luiz, Rudiger, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley, Hazard, Pedro, Morata

The stat that matters

Huddersfield haven’t beaten Chelsea in a league contest since 1963 when both sides were in division two.

The Terriers did win in a League Cup contest in 1999 when Kenny Irons stunned the home side with the only goal of the game.
