The Huddersfield vs. Chelsea match will be played on Tuesday, December 12, at the John Smith's Stadium, Huddersfield. Huddersfield is currently 12th on the table with18 points, while Chelsea is 3rd on the table with 32 points at the moment.
These teams played two times against each other in the 21st century. Both times it was in FA Cup, and both times Chelsea recorded a victory, by 2:1 and 3:1.
Huddersfield recorded a significant victory last weekend against their rival from the Championship in the previous season, Brighton. That can be pivotal in their battle against relegation, and they can be relaxed before the match against the reigning champions. On the other hand, Huddersfield already defeated Manchester United at home this season, and only Manchester City and Tottenham got the three points from John Smith's Stadium. After the game against Chelsea, Huddersfield will have a moderately more comfortable schedule until January, which can lead them to the safe zone.

Chelsea played a dreadful match against West Ham, and they are 14 points behind Manchester City at the moment. It seems they will fail to defend the title they won last year, but Conte will be happy with the top-four finish as well. To be in front of the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United, Chelsea will have to win all games against the times such as Huddersfield.
