Michael Owen states his prediction for Huddersfield v Chelsea
Michael Owen looks ahead to Chelsea's clash with Huddersfield on Tuesday night
Michael Owen is tipping Chelsea to get back to winning ways in the Premier League by beating Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night.
The Blues head into the game on the back of their disappointing 1-0 loss to West Ham United in the top flight at the London Stadium on Saturday.
Chelsea are aiming to try and claw their way back into the title race but they currently find themselves 14 points behind leaders Manchester City after 16 games of the new campaign.
The west London side won the Premier League title in style last season but are facing a serious uphill struggle in trying to retain their crown this time around.
However, former Liverpool FC star is fully expecting to see Chelsea claim all three points against Huddersfield on Tuesday night.
Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “Huddersfield have won three of their last four home games and the only defeat in that period was courtesy of a late Manchester City winner.
“Chelsea only dropped 21 points in their title season last term but have already dropped 16 after their loss at West Ham on Saturday.
“They must get back to winning ways against the Terriers although it won’t be easy in the John Smith’s Stadium.”
Chelsea will take on Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League after the draw was made in Nyon on Monday morning.
The Blues have won the Premier League in two of the last three seasons.
