Chelsea take on Huddersfield on Tuesday night and the Terriers manager David Wagner have said that the match will have the feel of a cup tie.
Wagner has said that he will take anything from the game and even a point against the defending Champions will be its worth in gold.
Wagner said, “I would take an ugly set-piece goal if it settles the match in our favour,
“I will take everything against a team like Chelsea. We have to be on a top performance. We cannot give one easy chance away.
“We have to avoid unforced errors and have to be at our top level and then we will see how this team works. It’s a little bit like a cup tie.”
One big positive for Wagner will be the fact that he has no injury concerns and Rajiv van La Parra is also back in contention for the match after serving a three-match ban for his altercation against Leroy Sane during the Manchester City game.
Wagner also touched on the topic that Manchester City are leaps and bounds ahead of every other club and the fact that Antonio Conte has said that the title race is over is enough to validate the Citizens’s supremacy.
“If Antonio Conte said this, it’s not up to me to say he isn’t right,” said Wagner.
“I was never really focused on the top six.
“I have to be focused at the minute on other regions to be successful with my football club.
“What is for sure a surprise is that it shows the top quality Pep Guardiola and Manchester City have developed.
“They have won 15 games and drawn one in the Premier League. In any country in Europe, to win 15 and draw one is absolutely extraordinary.
“This is what should be focused on rather than the other teams who are not able to follow them.”
