Michael Owen states his prediction for Huddersfield v Chelsea

Chelsea potentially open to Sturridge return

Huddersfield Town will host Chelsea on Tuesday in a midweek Premier League game.

Antonio Conte has admitted that Alvaro Morata will play no part in Tuesday's game, with concerns over a back injury and fatigue.

In 1924, 1925 and 1926, the Terriers lifted the First Division title - some 31 years before Chelsea tasted their first (and only non-Abramovich money) top-flight success.

Although Chelsea's results have been inconsistent, while City have won 14 successive league games to establish a dominant cushion, Willian believes the Blues will continue to push hard to defend their crown.

This was the first time that Eden Hazard - Chelsea's equivalent of Lionel Messi, you could say - came up against the Catalan giants.

Back in the summer Morata married his long time partner Alice Campello.

That quintet suffered just three defeats between them in the group stage and scored 80 goals in total, while reigning English champions Chelsea were the only team not to win their group.




"Now we must be focused in the league to go game by game, to do our best".

Chelsea is 11 points behind leader Manchester City, whose game in hand is against Swansea on Wednesday.

"I think when you play every three days, it is impossible to have a training session and to work on the physical aspects".

Huddersfield ended a run of four straight losses last time out, beating Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 with a convincing performance at the weekend.

"I like it when we have the possibility to rotate players".

Huddersfield manager David Wagner will be without on-loan midfielder Kasey Palmer, who will be ineligible to face his parent club. David Luiz remains sidelined with a knee injury and will again play no part, but Danny Drinkwater is back in contention following a bout of illness.

The Brazilian winger laid the ball off for Pedro Rodriguez to score the third in the 50th minute as Chelsea cut through Huddersfield at will.
