Wagner makes one change to starting XI

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made one change to the starting XI for tonight’s Premier League game against Chelsea; 8pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.

After a one game absence from the starting line-up, Danny Williams returns to the side tonight in place of Collin Quaner, who is among the substitutes.

The line-up is otherwise unchanged from Saturday’s home win over Brighton & Hove Albion, meaning that skipper Tommy Smith makes his 150th league start for the Club tonight.

Following his three-match suspension, Rajiv van La Parra is back among the substitutes tonight. He takes Joe Lolley’s place in the match day squad.

Wagner is still without the services of Philip Billing (ankle) and Jon Gorenc Stanković (knee), while Michael Hefele is regaining fitness having re-joined training following his absence with an Achilles problem.

Kasey Palmer is ineligible to play tonight as per the terms of his loan agreement from Chelsea.
