Huddersfield vs Chelsea: I don’t think Chelsea or anyone fancies coming here.

Antonio Conte's Chelsea side travel up north to face Huddersfield tomorrow night on what could be a cold, wet and windy Tuesday night. The view from the opposition is that Chelsea will not fancy it and it's vitally important that we prove them wrong. 

Having suffered defeat to West Ham on Saturday, this is now arguably our biggest game of the season so far if we are to maintain our position within the top four of the Premier League. We have what appears to be on paper a really good run of games taking us to the New Year and it's now more important that ever to deliver a good performance with three points.

Manchester City have extended their advantage over us to FOURTEEN points now and we can pretty much rule ourselves out of the title race so we need to focus on the top four with Manchester United just ahead of us and Liverpool just behind.

It's important games like this one tomorrow night that could make the difference at the end of the season and the Huddersfield camp believe that Chelsea will not fancy the trip.

Tom Ince speaking ahead of the game said:

“I don’t think Chelsea or anyone fancies coming here. The way we get in people’s faces, we stop people playing. We win our tackles, we win our battles, we make it difficult for teams. 

Chelsea have got talent in abundance. But we feel we can cause any team problems here. We beat Man United here - we deserved to beat Man United - and we ran Man City close."

Defender Mathias Jorgensen is also quoted as saying:

“It’s not a nice place to come and visit. On a day like this - it’s cold, people cheering, and we’re a very aggressive team. 

Chelsea will be more hungry for points [after their defeat]. You can say they don’t slip up that often - it’ll be up to us to make it a bad game for them." - Source: Telegraph.

It is a potential banana skin there is no doubt but you do have to give Huddersfield tremendous credit for their approach to the season so far. As their Manager said recently, it's no surprise when they lose games but it's the victories they have with the points accumulated already including three important points with victory over Brighton this passed weekend.

Chelsea simply cannot afford to not turn up for this one. We must play on the front foot, we must look to dominate the ball and Antonio Conte has to rotate his players. I am looking to the likes of Willian, Pedro, Drinkwater, Rudiger and Batshuayi to all come in and start the game in a change to formation back to 3-4-3. We have to find a way to break teams down who play defensive and look to get men back behind the ball in numbers.

If for any reason Chelsea are not at the races tomorrow, we are in trouble. The neutrals are looking for another Chelsea stumble - we simply cannot afford to prove them right.

  1. should be a good contest! up the Terriers - I will be a pleasure to have the Champions at the Theatre of Screams!

  2. Depends on the ;;;weather;;;CD hopefully the sun will have been-shinning during the day so no-need for the hot-water-bottles and quilts,and asking over-paid prima-donna,s to play and perform so soon after midday saturday is expecting just to much,if only these ;;superstars;;could get a real-job with livable wages,but I,m guessing they will have to struggle-on playing and get by on their wages till something better turns up....failing that does anyone know what CFC team will turn-up anymore,and being a big fan of Conte that has surprised me.

  3. I hope we're not still tired having had to get up early last Saturday and travel all the way to Yorkshire the following Tuesday. If Batshuayi thought it was cold in East London then someone best prepare him for this one, some thermals and plenty of tin foil is the order of the day.

    I can fully understand Tom Inces' optimism.

  4. Depends on the weather CD,,,if it,s been a nice and sunny day ;;up north;;players may not need to have their water bottle and quilts with them,but really how can we expect the players to travel so far and play another game so soon after midday-saturday,if only they could all get a ;;proper-job;;paying loads of money,less hours and more perks a,,,in reality do any of us know which CFC team will turn up?that has surprised me the most this year more so with having Conte [[ who I,m a big fan of ]] in charge thought he would stamp-out this trait that seems to consistently crop-up..
