This Wednesday evening, Chelsea welcome Huddersfield Town to Stamford Bridge for a Premier League fixture.

It is the last home game of the 2017 / 2018 season and the penultimate fixture of our Premier League campaign, although we do still have the FA Cup Final to look forward to on 19 May.

Huddersfield arrive in SW6 looking to get something from the game to keep their hopes of retaining their Premier League status very much alive.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will be looking to make it five wins on the bounce as they seek to take advantage of any lapses made by Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, in the race for the Champions League places for the 2018 / 2019 season.

Ahead of the game, we’ve assembled some early team-news.

Starting with Chelsea:

With the fixtures coming thick and fast in recent weeks, Antonio Conte may take the opportunity to shuffle his starting eleven.

Looking for a start are the likes of Alvaro Morata, Willian, Pedro, Davide Zappacosta and Andreas Christensen.

However, with a win a must, if our hopes of a top-four finish are to go to the last game of the season, Conte will be only too aware that too many changes could affect the rhythm of the side.

Continuing with our visitors, Huddersfield Town:

The Terriers boss, David Wagner, faces the same dilemma as Antonio Conte, with three games in a week, he may decide to rotate his starting eleven.

Tom Ince is once again available for selection, but the duo of Chris Lowe and Terence Kongolo will require fitness tests.

Up the Chels!
