This evening, Chelsea take on Huddersfield Town in their penultimate Premier League fixture of the 2017 / 2018 season.

The fixture’s outcome is important for both sides.

Chelsea need the three points on offer to keep alive, until the final day of the season, their hopes of a top-four place thereby providing entrance to the Champions League next season.

Huddersfield, however, need the points for a very different reason. The Terriers are in danger of being relegated, after just one season in the top flight.

With Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion already relegated, Huddersfield face a difficult conclusion to their season with games against Chelsea (a) and Arsenal (h). The Yorkshire side are, understandably, the pundit’s favourites to be relegated.

Tonight, we could see Antonio Conte shuffle his starting eleven as he contemplates the prospect of playing a second tough Premier League fixture in just four days.

Later, in our regular Team-News feature, we’ll reveal exactly who the boss has selected.

Meanwhile, we’re pleased to bring you our regular Match Day Moments feature whereby we invite you to leave an opinion, in our comments facility, on a variety of subjects including, but not limited to,

1 – The build-up to the last game of the season to be played at Stamford Bridge.

2 – The starting eleven selected by Antonio Conte.

3 – The action as it takes place at Stamford Bridge.

4 – Your thought in the period following the final whistle and the match report appearing on Vital Chelsea.

Fingers crossed that, come 22:00 hours UK time, we’re all celebrating a Chelsea win!
