Huddersfield v Chelsea: Tight affair on the cards in Yorkshire

| 11.12.2017

Huddersfield Town may have struggled on the road, but David Wagner’s men have been one of the Premier League’s stronger home records.

They’ve taken 14 points from eight at the John Smith’s Stadium, and host a Chelsea side whose away form is the definition of ‘hit and miss’.

The Blues have won three and lost three of the last seven on their travels, in all competitions. In the process, they’ve suffered defeat to lowly pair Crystal Palace and West Ham United.

With a Chelsea win priced at just 4/9, all the value looks to be on the hosts.

Having beaten Manchester United at the John Smith’s Stadium, the Terriers are no strangers to a scalp. We like the look of Double Chance: Huddersfield or Draw at 19/10.

But if you want to play it extra safe, the Huddersfield +2 handicap could prove a smart selection at 8/13. Only one visiting side has won here by more than a single goal this season.

A goal-fest looks unlikely, especially in the opening period. Four of Chelsea’s last five games have been goalless at the interval, while the Yorkshire club are solid but low-scoring on their own patch. First Half Score: 0-0 looks very backable at 19/10.

With just 16 goals scored in Huddersfield’s eight Prem home games this term, Under 2.5 Goals could also prove popular at 5/6.

But if you are looking to back a goalscorer, the hosts’ Steve Mounie could be your man.

The Benin international bagged a brace against Brighton & Hove Albion last time out. And he’s 7/2 to Score Anytime against a Blues side who’ve managed just one clean sheet in five matches.
