Injury News: Van La Parra Return, Morata Absent

Injury News: Van La Parra Return, Morata Absent

Last seasons Premier League Champions Chelsea are coming to Town, live on BTSport with an 8pm kick off tonight.

Chelsea head to Huddersfield on the back of a shock loss to West Ham at the weekend and with the news that Alvaro Morata is set to miss out tonight with a back injury.

David Luiz is also on the treatment table and many expect a January exit for the Brazilian too.

Michy Batshuayi is expected to replace Morata in the team having recovered from an ankle injury, and ex-Town loanee Danny Drinkwater is also back in contention having recovered from illness.

The Terriers head into the game fresh off a 2-0 win against Brighton and in high spirits.

They are boosted by the return of Rajiv Van La Parra from suspension with the wide man expected to replace Colin Quaner in the starting eleven.

Michael Hefele is back in training but this match will surely come too soon for the former Dynamo Dresden defender and he will be joined on the sidelines by Chelsea loanee Kasey Palmer who is inelligible

Philip Billing remains sidelined with his ankle injury as does Jon Goren-Stankovic (knee)
