Chelsea will be looking to close the gap between themselves and their top four-chasing rivals when they take on Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.

The Blues currently trail third placed Liverpool by three points and fourth placed Tottenham Hotspur by two points going into their final home fixture of the season.

Chelsea go into the match with no new injury concerns. Injured trio David Luiz, Ethan Ampadu and Danny Drinkwater continue to be sidelined but striker Alvaro Morata is fit to feature. Attacking pair Willian and Pedro are pushing for recalls and could be considered for starts.

Visitors Huddersfield Town arrive at Stamford Bridge on the back on an impressive goalless draw at champions Manchester City on Sunday.

The Terriers could be without defensive pair Terence Kongolo and Chris Lowe for the long trip to South West London with both players currently struggling with knocks. Midfielder Tom Ince is set for a return to the starting XI after missing his side’s fixture at the Etihad Stadium.

Both clubs are in desperate need of the three points. A win for Chelsea will keep their hopes of UEFA Champions League qualification alive while a shock victory for Huddersfield Town will virtually end any relegation worries.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 7.45pm and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
