Huddersfield Town VS Chelsea
Tuesday (12/12/2017)
21:00 (WAT)
Chelsea will be desperate to get back to winning ways in the Premier League against Huddersfield after the shock weekend loss to West Ham.

Marko Arnautovic's early strike was enough to earn David Moyes his first win as Hammers boss and condemn the Blues to their fourth defeat of the Premier League campaign.

Antonio Conte said after the game that Chelsea's Premier League title defence is now over, before adding it "never started", as they now sit 14 points behind pace-setters Manchester City.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, ended their four-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over Brighton.


Team news
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is poised to rotate his options as he seeks an immediate response from his side.

Midfielder Danny Drinkwater (illness) and defender David Luiz (knee) missed last Saturday's loss at West Ham and could come into contention, with both being monitored.

Striker Alvaro Morata and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko could be among those rested after both were substituted inside an hour at the London Stadium.

Provisional squad: Courtois, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Fabregas, Drinkwater, Kante, Morata, Hazard, Pedro, Bakayoko, Moses, Kenedy, Zappacosta, Willian, Batshuayi, Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Clarke-Salter, Sterling, Eduardo, Ampadu.

Rajiv van La Parra will return to contention for Huddersfield. Van La Parra has served a three-game ban following his straight red card in the recent home defeat to Manchester City and head coach David Wagner must decide whether the winger will start.

Wagner has no new injury or suspension worries after Saturday's home win against Brighton, while defender Michael Hefele returned to full training on Sunday following an Achilles injury. Chelsea loanee Kasey Palmer is ineligible.

Provisional squad: Lossl, Coleman, Malone, Cranie, Schindler, Jorgensen, Hadergjonaj, Smith, Lowe, Williams, Whitehead, Hogg, Mooy, Ince, Kachunga, Van La Parra, Quaner, Depoitre, Mounie.

Predicted line-ups
Huddersfield Town starting XI: Lossl; Smith, Zanka, Schnidler, Lowe; Mooy, Hogg; Kachunga, Ince, Quaner; Mounie

Chelsea starting XI: Courtois; Azipilicueta, Christensen, Cahill; Moses. Fabregas, Kante, Bakayoko, Alonso; Hazard; Morata
