PREDICTION
Antonio Conte has all but waved the white flag in terms of Chelsea defending their Premier League title, but they will be looking to bounce back after defeat to West Ham last weekend while facing a Huddersfield side who will be boosted by victory over Brighton. That said, Chelsea will just have that additional quality required to earn all three points.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The last time Huddersfield beat Chelsea was back in October 1999; the setting was Stamford Bridge and the tie was a third round League Cup fixture. Kenny Irons would be the hero that evening as his second half goal was enough to dump the West London outfit out of the competition.
