The Premier League is back! The 2018/19 Season kicks off this Weekend, and Chelsea takes on Huddersfield Town at the John Smith Stadium on Saturday. The Blues have had a frantic Deadline Day, Signing Mateo Kovacic on Loan, Smashing the Goalkeeper Transfer Record for Kepa Arrizabalaga and Selling Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid within the last 24 hours of the Window. But now Maurizio Sarri must turn his attention to David Wagner’s Huddersfield.
It would be interesting to see how Chelsea Lineup considering the Likes of Eden Hazard, N’Golo Kante and Olivier Giroud have been in training for less than a week and new signings Mateo Kovacic and Kepa Arrizabalaga arrived at the Club on Deadline Day. Huddersfield escaped relegation last Season when they drew against Chelsea which played a huge factor in the blues being deprived of Champions League Football this Season. Both teams will be hoping to get off to a good start, Huddersfield has the home advantage and despite things looking a little unclear at Chelsea, Maurizio Sarri’s side goes into this game as Favourites.
Chelsea- Eden Hazard
Good news, Chelsea fans!

Eden Hazard is the most gifted player in the Premier League, hands down. The Belgian is coming off an excellent performance in the World Cup leading his country to a third-place finish, which is Belgium’s best performance at the World Cup. The Talismanic forward created quite a stir in the transfer market but now Hazard seems content at Chelsea. It is still unclear whether he would start the game or not but even from the bench Hazard could be a lethal weapon for the Blues.
Huddersfield Town- Aaron Mooy
"Hopefully it works out well…"

The Australian Midfielder was one of the best players for Huddersfield last Season, finishing with 4 goals and 3 assists. Mooy is a key player for David Wagner as he takes set pieces and controls the game from the centre of the park. He even had a decent showing at the World Cup for Australia, Making 8 key passes from set pieces in the Group Stage.
Chelsea has a few issues they need to sort out, especially in defence. But the Blues have too much quality to slack off against Huddersfield so we’re going for a 1-0 Chelsea Win.
