Chelsea are back in the race for top-four, and they will look to keep their winning run going when they host Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
The Blues have won their last four games in the league, and in their last game, they picked up a crucial 1-0 home win over Liverpool.
They are currently placed fifth in the table with 69 points, and a win against the Terriers will put them level with the Reds. However, Chelsea don’t have their fate in their hands due to a poor goal difference, and they need either Liverpool or Tottenham to slip up in the final week.
The Terriers are also in desperate need of points as they seek to secure their Premier League status for another season. Huddersfield pulled up a shocker on Sunday as they claimed a goalless draw at Manchester City. David Wagner will hope for a similar performance and some luck on Wednesday.
Huddersfield currently occupy the 16th spot with 36 points, and they are three points clear of both Swansea City and Southampton. The Terriers play Arsenal at home in their final game, and it could go down the wire for them.
Earlier this season, the Blues claimed a 3-1 win over their opponents in the reverse fixture at the John Smith’s Stadium.
