Our tipster is backing the Blues to win comfortably against David Wagner's Terriers in Wednesday's Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea face Huddersfield Town in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge in a fixture that could prove significant at both ends of the table.

The Blues beat Liverpool in west London on Sunday afternoon and will take their challenge for Champions League qualification to the final day of the campaign with a win here.

Huddersfield, however, picked up a precious point against Manchester City on Sunday and David Wagner's Terriers will be guaranteed a Premier League place next season should they win this one.

Latest odds

Chelsea are chalked up as bet365's 1/6 (1.17) favourites to bag a vital victory from this one, while the Terriers are a chunky 20/1 (21.0) chance to win on Wednesday.

bet365 go 7/1 (8.0) that Wagner's charges secure a third consecutive draw away from home in the Premier League when they visit last season's champions.

Team news

David Luiz and Ethan Ampadu remain sidelined and Antonio Conte has no fresh concerns, although the manager may be tempted to rest some key men ahead of the FA Cup final against Manchester United.

Huddersfield will hope that Tom Ince is fit after the midfielder missed the trip to Manchester on Sunday, but Danny Williams and Elias Kachunga are again unavailable.

Defensive discipline key for Conte

Chelsea have conceded just one goal in their last eight wins inside normal time at Stamford Bridge and Huddersfield could struggle to make much of an impact against the Blues.

Indeed, Town have managed just one goal in their last four fixtures away from home and bet365 offer just 8/13 (1.62) that Conte's team keep a clean sheet.

Tips and predictions

Huddersfield showed steely resolve to keep Manchester City at bay on Sunday, but Wagner's team will face another tough test in west London.

Chelsea can claim a comfortable victory and bet365's even money (2.0) quote for the Blues to win both halves could represent decent value for punters here.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
