The Premier League title looks like it’s heading to the blue side of Manchester but Chelsea will be aiming to cement their top four spot as they head to Huddersfield.
An unexpected defeat against West Ham was a blow to Antonio Conte’s side, but the West Londoners have a chance to go level on points with second placed Manchester United if they can get a victory at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The away win is just 4/9 (1.44) with Betfair Sportsbook, hardly a quote to get punters overly excited as a single wager but there’s a huge offer available for those yet to open an account.

David Wagner’s men have been solid on home soil in their maiden Premier League season but prior to their weekend win Brighton, they’d lost each of their previous four matches. Betfair rate Huddersfield as 8/1 (9.0) chances to inflict back-to-back defeats on the reigning champions while the draw is an 18/5 (4.60) shot.
Rotation could be the name of the game this week and while Chelsea are without Alvaro Morata, Conte should be able to welcome back David Luiz and Danny Drinkwater. The Italian will certainly be hoping that the strength in depth he’s able to call upon will prove the difference as the festive football calendar switches up a gear.
Even without Morata, the visitors should be confident of recording a victory. Including Steve Mounie’s double on Saturday, Huddersfield have scored just three goals in their previous five matches and conceded 12 times.
Given Chelsea have conceded just 13 goals in 16 Premier League games thus far, Wagner’s side might find it tough to break down the Blues’ backline or keep the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro quiet at the other end of the field.
Chelsea may be a bit hit and miss this term, but at 25/1 (26.0) instead of the usual 4/9 (1.44) they should be a popular pick for anyone yet to open a Betfair account in Tuesday’s featured Premier League clash.
