Alvaro Morata Returns For Chelsea's Crunch Clash At Home To Huddersfield

Alvaro Morata Returns For Chelsea's Crunch Clash At Home To Huddersfield”

The introduction of Hazard in the 59th minute injected some much-needed attacking flair for the home side but Huddersfied managed to hold on for the draw to secure their Premier League status for next season. "We had lady luck, no doubt about it, but it's an unbelievable achievement for this football club".

Chelsea looked dead and buried in the race for top four places a month ago, but now have renewed hope following their win over Liverpool on Sunday.

Willian, Pedro and Emerson Palmieri are among those who could come in, but defenders David Luiz (knee) and Ethan Ampadu (ankle) are out.

Chelsea have won their last nine matches in all competitions against sides with Town in their name, scoring 32 goals and conceding just six.

Meanwhile, champions Manchester City said a fond Etihad farewell to Yaya Toure, routing Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 and moving on to 97 points - the most in a Premier League season - and to the verge of a landmark 100-point campaign.

Chelsea are now fifth in the Premier League table, and sit two points behind London neighbours Tottenham, with a further three points behind Liverpool who they defeated last season.

In order to capitalise, they must win their first win their own matches.

Chelsea head into the match on the back of a four game winning streak, which includes a hard-fought 1-0 triumph over top-4 rivals Liverpool last week.

But the former Real Madrid man has scored just one league goal since the turn of year, as Chelsea's form has drastically tailed off. "I think the situation is very clear", he told reporters (via Goal).
