Eden Hazard On Bench - Chelsea Team vs Huddersfield Town Confirmed

Spurs control their own destiny when it comes to finishing third, and have a bit of "late season meaningless game" payback to proffer Newcastle from the finale two seasons ago.

However, the Terriers have shown their tenacity recently, and not one of the experts predicted Town to get a point against the Champions Manchester City.

Wagner's men defended heroically to hang on for the decisive point that moves them four clear of the relegation zone with one match to play, ensuring they will have a second season in the top flight next season, against all odds.

Chelsea have also taken heart from fourth-placed Tottenham's recent dip, with Mauricio Pochettino's team having won once in their past four league games.

Antonio Conte will be glad his tactical ploy worked well to diffuse the Liverpool goal threat and the Blues will be hoping for a similarly strong performance defensively on Wednesday.

Chelsea must now win at Newcastle on Sunday and hope Liverpool lose at home to Brighton to qualify for the Champions League.

Álvaro Morata (knock) is unlikely to start this game, joining David Luiz (knee) and Ethan Ampadu (ankle) who remain out of action for the Blues.

"He has the right characteristics to play for Chelsea".

"Every team deserves the pionts that they have in the table". N'Golo Kante was back to his masterful self against the Champions League finalists. We saw top, top quality in Chelsea's side, and we saw desire, spirit, great attitude and an unbelievable work rate on our side, and sometimes that's enough. We tried to win the game until the end.

However, given the freedom to play unrestricted from pressure, they may just manage to pull off a surprise result which further tips their top-flight dominance into their favour.

The result means Chelsea, who looked out of contention for a top-four finish just a month ago, picked up their fourth straight league win at the flawless time to apply the pressure.

This match will be the 66th time both of them will face each other.
