Head Coach Jan Siewert has made five changes to Huddersfield Town’s starting line-up for today’s Premier League game at Chelsea; 3pm kick-off at Stamford Bridge.
After a substitute appearance against Everton in midweek, Aaron Mooy completes his return from the knee injury he sustained against Arsenal in early December to make his 50th Premier League start for the Club.
Philip Billing joins him in midfield, having missed the last two games with a slight knee problem, whilst Isaac Mbenza returns from his calf injury to start this afternoon.
The final two inclusions come in defence, where Tommy Smith and Chris Löwe come in for their first starts of Siewert’s tenure.
Zanka, Florent Hadergjonaj, Jason Puncheon and Steve Mounié are substitutes today, alongside new signing Karlan Grant.
Unfortunately, Jonathan Hogg (back) misses out today; he joins Danny Williams (knee) on the injury list.
