Chelsea vs Huddersfield Town
Chelsea kick off their 2018-19 Premier League campaign away to Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.
The Terriers secured Premier League survival against the Blues last May, with a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge ensuring David Wagner’s side steered clear of relegation.
Huddersfield have spent over £45million in their bid to avoid another dogfight this season, but Chelsea also hope to begin their new campaign with one or two major new arrivals on show.
