Chelsea vs Huddersfield Town 9 May 2018: EPL Soccer Preview and Predictions

Chelsea had a big win over Liverpool on the weekend and that will give the Blues tons of confidence as they head into the final home game of the season. The Blues will be hosting Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge with both teams desperate to win and get all three points.

Huddersfield Town need to get some points. The teams below them play each other which means that they are in high risk of being dragged into the bottom three spots on the ladder. This is something which would be tragic after such as promising start to the season for the Terriers. This is going to be a tough game for the away side but they need to get something from it since they have no easy games left this season.

On the other side of the coin, Chelsea have gotten hope of making the Champions League once again after Tottenham lost points to West Brom on the weekend. This will be a massive inspiration to the Blues but I am not sure it will be enough. Chelsea look like a club where the manager and the players have no interest in playing and that is a huge problem. At home, they should be more than good enough to beat Huddersfield Town but it will be interesting to see if the motivation is there to get the job done.

All in all, I am not going to bet on the outright result since I have no faith in Chelsea and betting on Huddersfield seems like too much of a gamble. The best bet is the under 2.5 goals. Both teams have been struggling to find the back of the net and this wager makes tons of sense due to that reason.

 

Pick:
Under 2.5 Goals
