Huddersfield vs Chelsea Betting Tip and Prediction

Huddersfield vs Chelsea – Premier League :Huddersfield was one of the clubs that were on the dangerous relegation zone last season
On their debut season in the Premier League, but a great start of the season has put them on the upper part of the league table from the beginning.
Unfortunately for David Wagner’s men, their form has gotten worse, but it was enough for them to avoid relegation, finishing in 16th place of the league table at the end of the season.
The club’s board recognized the need to strengthen the roster, and they know they can’t count with such a good start as last season’s.
The Terriers count this season with Adama Diakhaby, Ramadan Sobhi, Juninho Bacuna and Erik Durm to add new options throughout the pitch, besides making the signings of Terence Kongolo, Florent Hadergjonaj and Jonas Lossl permanent.
The pre-seaosn was also very good for Huddersfield. They have lost to Accrington Stanley in the middle of July, but since then, they’ve played with Dynamo Dresden and Darmstadt and they’ve gotten impressive victories over Lyon, Bologna and RB Leipzig.
This will be another season where they will fight very hard to avoid relegation, because the Premier League is one of the more balanced competitions I know. The manager David Wagner won’t be able to count with Danny Williams, who is injured.
Chelsea starts this season, with Maurizio Sarri taking command after the fall of Antonio Conte last season, that resulted on his dismissal.
He arrived at Stamford Bridge after making a great job and turning Napoli into a great team, that was able to put up a fight against the powerful Juventus on the fight for the Serie A’s title.
It is important to say that the Italian has never won a big trophy. It is unlikely that Roman Abramovich will tolerate that record that has been persistent for quite some time.
Huddersfield vs Chelsea – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It wasn’t the best start for Sarri on the pre-season, with a 1-0 victory over Perth Glory from Australia, but since then, they haven’t won any matches.
The draws against Inter Milan, Arsenal and Lyon on the International Champions Cup don’t inspire a lot of confidence. The Blues looked
tired and exhausted on the loss against Manchester City on the Community Shield this past weekend.
The good news is that Eden Hazard is closer and closer to staying on Chelsea this season, unlike his Belgian countryman Thibaut Courtois that has moved to Real Madrid.
The only big signing of this transfer window is Jorginho. Chelsea won’t be able to count with Marco Van Ginkel for this match, since he is still injured.
I predict a typical start of the season match, with both teams studying each other out and being cautious. Chelsea has every condition to win this encounter, because they are the much superior team here.
