Having suffered a shock away defeat at the weekend, Al Hain-Cole thinks the Conte's men could be in for another tricky clash against Wagner's side

Chelsea will be determined to bounce back from their surprise defeat at West Ham United when they travel to the John Smith’s Stadium to take on Huddersfield Town in Tuesday’s Premier League clash.

Antonio Conte’s men went down 1-0 at the London Stadium for their fourth defeat of the league season, but are clear 1/3 (1.33) favourites with dabblebet to get straight back to winning ways in this one.

Meanwhile, the Terriers brought an end to their own four-game losing streak by beating Brighton 2-0 at the weekend, and are on offer at 10/1 (11.00) to build on that result with a shock victory here.

None of the hosts’ last 10 fixtures have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 15/4 (4.75) on them earning a share of the spoils on this occasion.

Whilst few would have predicted the Blues to come unstuck away to David Moyes’ strugglers, it was not the first time they have been upset by a side in the relegation zone this campaign – having lost 2-1 away to Crystal Palace back in October.

Having already dropped only five points fewer in 16 games this season than they did during the whole of the last campaign, the champions have certainly lost the unbeatable aura that saw the stroll to the title.

After their morale-boosting win on Saturday, David Wagner’s team will fancy their chances of causing some more problems for their illustrious opponents – much as they did to Manchester United in October’s shock 2-1 win.

Although another victory may be pushing it slightly, it is not hard to see the newly-promoted outfit having at least a goal to celebrate considering they have only failed to score twice in eight home games this season.

All in all, odds of 5/4 (2.25) appear generous on a Chelsea side that has kept only one clean sheet in five fixtures but failed to score just once on the road in the league sharing the scoresheet with Huddersfield.
