Sponsored by

Huddersfield Town’s final away Premier League game of the 2017/18 season is on Wednesday 9 May 2018 as the Terriers travel to the Capital to face Chelsea.

The match, which kicks off at 7.45pm at Stamford Bridge, will be shown live on Sky Sports.

David Wagner’s side comes into the game off the back of a valiant performance at the Etihad Stadium, drawing 0-0 with Manchester City – the only side to stop the Cityzens scoring at home in the Premier League this season.

Wednesday’s opponent, Chelsea, come into the game off the back of a 1-0 win over Champions League finalists Liverpool.

The Blues currently sit in fifth, just two points outside the Champions League places, whilst Town sits in 16th, three points ahead of the relegation zone.

When the two sides met earlier this season at the John Smith’s Stadium, Chelsea ran out 3-1 winners with Laurent Depoitre scoring a consolation goal for the Terriers.

FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE – FORM

César Azpilicueta

Form: 4.8

The ever-dependable Spanish full-back is the Club’s Vice Captain and has led the team out on numerous occasions this season. The ever-present stalwart has helped the Blues to 15 clean sheets so far this campaign and has setup two goals in his last three games.

Olivier Giroud

The January signing from Arsenal scored in Chelsea’s last Premier League win (1-0 over Liverpool) and has battled Morata for a spot in the starting XI. The striker has scored seven goals this season (three for Chelsea).
