Chelsea will be looking forward to this Premier league fixture against Huddersfield, but there is a whole lot of real estate between now and when that game happens. First, the Blues have to play against Tottenham in the League Cup semifinals. After that, they will face Sheffield Wednesday in the fourth round of the FA Cup. After the cup matches, they will be returning to league action against Bournemouth on 30th of January.
Just 3 days later, they will be facing off with Huddersfield. That is an impressive lineup of games, and the Blues ranks must work hard and rotate the squad in smart ways to avoid injuries to key players.
Last time in the PL, Chelsea got hammered for two by Arsenal, a drubbing that led to coach Maurizio Sari labeling his players as "hard to motivate’.

Huddersfield lost out 3-0 at home to a Manchester City side and will need to show up if the want to stay in the league.
