Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Chelsea will be aiming to bounce back from a heart-breaking loss to West Ham United in the London derby when they take on Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Blues want to keep their hopes of winning the Premier League trophy alive and we predict the capital club will go all guns blazing at the Terriers in the midweek fixture. Huddersfield Town desperately needed a win against fellow newcomers Brighton at the weekend and they managed to pick up all three points from the match. The Terriers are tough to beat at home and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fifth home win of the season. However, considering that the Blues are determined to return to winning ways in the English top flight, we believe that away win should be considered. The two teams have not met in the national championship since January, 1972.
Highlighted Player (Jason Davidson):
Jason Davidson is an Australian international who plays for Huddersfield Town. The pacey left back started his youth career at Seiritsu Gakuen and in 2009 he joined Pacos de Ferreira. Davidson made his senior debut at Hume City in 2009, but he left the club later that year. He returned to Pacos de Ferreira in September, 2009, but he made no more than 5 appearances for the club in the 2009/2010 Primeira Liga campaign. Jason Davidson was voted 2009 Victorian Premier League – U 21 player of the Year and during that period Stuttgart, Sporting CP and Ankaragucu scouts spotted him. However, after ending his loan spell with Sporting Covilha, he joined Heracles Amelo in January, 2012. The Australian player, who was born on 29 June 1991, scored 2 goals in 51 league appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit and in August 2014 he signed a contract with Premier League side West Bromwich Albion. Nonetheless, he played no more than two league games for the Baggies as the club announced his release in May 2015. Huddersfield Town chiefs decided to sign a three-year deal with Donaldson on 26 June 2015 and it has to be noted that he scored one goal in 27 appearences for the club in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game.
Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.
After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
