Leicester City travel to the John Smith Stadium to take on newly promoted Huddesfield town in what should be an intriguing clash.
Leicester the Premier League champions of two years ago have started the season poorly but with tough games against Manchester City and Chelsea it isnt suprising that the Foxes have just three points from four games. One thing that has improved is the performances from a year ago. Jamie Vardy, Okazaki , Mahrez have all looked sharp and Leicester are going to be a top half team this year if they continue to play to this high level. Last time out against Chelsea was a game which Leicester could easily have got a point from or maybe more. Vardy has three in four games and Okazaki two in three. The front two are quick and dangerous and they will test out Huddersfield's back four.
Huddersfield started the season with two wins and a draw before losing to West Ham on Monday night. David Wagner's side have been impressive, the summer addition of record signing Mounie and Ince has helped offensively and Huddersfield are not the whipping boys many thought they would be. To stay in the Premier League promoted sides really need to make their home ground a fortress and take as many points as possible from those fixtures. Huddersfield won fifteen games at home last year and will be looking to build on that this year.
Really interesting game here. I think Leicester have been better than their results indicate and given they have had tough fixtures with Manchester City away and Chelsea at home. Likewise Huddersfield have had possibly one of the easier schedules to date away to a disfunctional Crystal Palace and home to Newcastle and struggling Southampton. I think both teams cancel each other out here and I am taking the draw.
