Chelsea will be hoping to quickly erase memories of their disastrous 4-0 defeat at AFC Bournemouth in midweek when struggling Huddersfield Town make the long trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
Maurizio Sarri’s side put in a woeful performance on the south coast as they were humiliated by The Cherries and they must get back on track very quickly to keep their top four hopes alive.
Chelsea boss Sarri could opt to make several changes to his starting XI following that heavy defeat at the Vitality Stadium. The likes of Andreas Christensen, Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Willian are some of those players pushing for recalls.
Loan striker Gonzalo Higuain is rated as ‘doubtful’ with the player battling a recent back injury.
The Blues’ latest opponents Huddersfield Town arrive at Stamford Bridge rooted to the bottom of the English Premier League table. The Terriers could have defender Philip Billing available for selection once again following a recent knee injury while midfielder Aaron Mooy is also pushing for a start.
The West Yorkshire outfit could offer a debut to Transfer Deadline Day signing Karlan Grant in attack.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 3pm and has not been selected for live television coverage.
