Chelsea visit Huddersfield Town this evening as Antonio Conte’s men look to bounce back from the defeat to West Ham United at the weekend.
The Premier League champions were defeated 1-0 by the Hammers, in what was arguably our worst performance since Conte took the reins at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2016.
Our title defence is now effectively over. Manchester City went 14 points clear of us with a win over arch-rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford. However, we cannot afford to become disheartened and take our foot off the pedal.
Liverpool are hot on our heels, with Arsenal and Tottenham not far behind. We need to ensure that we finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League.
Today’s game provides a perfect opportunity for Chelsea to get back on the rails and back to winning ways. Alvaro Morata misses out tonight, but it is still a strong looking starting eleven Conte has named.
