Maurizio Sarri Chelsea 2018-19
The Blues will be looking to outwit the Terriers and punters can benefit from it by staking on goal action at both ends of the pitch

Chelsea travel to John Smith's Stadium to face Huddersfield Town in their opening 2018-19 Premier League game on Saturday.

Maurizio Sarri lost a chance to pick his first trophy with the Blues, missing out on the FA Community Shield after a 2-0 thrashing by Manchester City.

The former Napoli boss who replaced Antonio Conte as the manager of the Stamford Bridge outfit will aggressively be looking to return to winning ways with his side in this contest.

Considering that Chelsea are undefeated in their previous three meetings with their hosts, winning two and drawing one, BetKing have tipped them as clear favourites at (1.60) to cart away the maximum points.

A share of spoils at the end of full duration is available at a chunky (3.85) with the same betting firm.

Huddersfield will be hoping to live up to their pre-season form where they won their last three games against Olympique Lyon, Bologna and RB Leipzig.

However, to achieve that, they will have to be solid defensively and sharp in attack to upset the odds of (6.00) put up by the betting outfit.

Given that both sides were on the scoresheet in each of their previous three meetings, backing them to repeat the same here can fetch punters a good return at odds of (1.90) with BetKing.
