Chelsea are at home to Southampton on Saturday, Huddersfield visit Watford HUDDERSFIELD TOWN 1 CHELSEA 3 Dec 12 (Reuters) - Third-placed Chelsea returned to winning ways with a comfortable 3-1 victory at Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Tuesday.

"We won seven games out of the last nine and drew at Liverpool".

In 1924, 1925 and 1926, the Terriers lifted the First Division title - some 31 years before Chelsea tasted their first (and only non-Abramovich money) top-flight success.

"There is a problem in this league: there are six top teams and only four places for the Champions League", Conte told the club's website.

Hazard said: 'Eleven now, we won.

A Didier Drogba goal from the first leg gave them a one-goal advantage going into the return at the Nou Camp but a red card for John Terry after Sergio Busquets had levelled the aggregate score gave them a massive uphill task. "At the end we lost the game".

Bakayoko could and should have scored seconds earlier but his header from a Willian free-kick went inches wide of the home side's goal.

But while Conte concedes his side's defeat to Manchester City was understandable, their losses to Burnley, Crystal Palace and West Ham, the latter two both in relegation danger, have given the Blues boss major cause for concern.

"When we play like this it is easy to play - good movement, the manager wanted us to move a lot and not always stay in the same position".

Chelsea and Barca have been on opposite sides of some of the Champions League's most thrilling and controversial games in the past.

Chelsea are aiming to try and claw their way back into the title race but they now find themselves 14 points behind leaders Manchester City after 16 games of the new campaign.

A Samuel Eto'o victor at Stamford Bridge and a 1-1 draw in the return fixture set Barca on their way to their second-ever Champions League crown, eventually defeating Arsenal in the final.
