  • 30'

    Hazard receives the ball on the left side. The Belgian does brilliantly to beat his man before crossing the ball into the box. Hazard looks on in disbelief as he sees not a single Chelsea shirt in the box to meet his cross.

  • 27'

    Huddersfield are struggling to get the ball up-field now. The home side are looking for the long ball outlet, but there really isn't anything happening up front.

  • 24'

    GOAL to Chelsea! Bakayoko puts the visitors in front! Awful clearance from Lossl and Chelsea attack. Willian runs with the ball before feeding Bakayoko down the left side of the box. Bakayoko shoots from a tight angle and finishes superbly.

  • 21'

    A rather slow start to the game from both sides. Chelsea have the majority of the possession but are very patient going forward. Neither side have really tested either keeper as of yet.

  • 18'

    Moses is forced to put the ball behind for a Huddersfield corner. Mooy delivers the corner, and Christensen heads clear before Mounie fires wide from close range. The forward was offside in any case.

  • 14'

    Azpilicueta finds a gap in the Huddersfield defence, and plays a long ball into the box towards Willian. The Brazilian chests the ball down but the control is not good and Huddersfield clear.

  • 11'

    The home side create their first attack. Kachunga makes a run down the right flank and feeds Mooy, who is around 25 yards out. The forward shoots but his effort is blocked by Azpilicueta.

  • 9'

    The away side have set up camp in Huddersfield's half. Chelsea continue to dominate the game with some patient play. The home side remain tight at the back.

  • 7'

    Chance for Chelsea: Azpilicueta plays in a superb ball for Hazard, who is in the box and onside. Hazard is in acres of space but the ball in is a bit too far and Lossl comes out to collect.

  • 3'

    It's been all Chelsea in the opening minutes of the game. The away side really in control of the ball. Hazard seems to be playing the furthest forward with Morata out injured.

  • 1'

    KICK-OFF: We're underway at The John Smith's Stadium as the referee blows his whistle to begin the game.

  • 0'

    Wagner makes one change to his side that beat Brighton on the weekend. Quaner makes way for Williams. Conte makes four changes to his side that lost to West Ham. Morata, Cahill, Zappacosta and Fabregas make way for Pedro, Rudiger, Willian and Moses.
