Leicester City are yet to achieve a win in September after failing to beat both Bournemouth and Liverpool in the previous 2 rounds of the Barclays Premier League. “The Foxes” are very pragmatic under the reign of Claude Puel and have earned only 6 points so far. The game against the struggling Huddersfield comes in the perfect moment for the hosts who should be looking to get back on the winning way.
Huddersfield Town were lucky to escape relegation last season but are clear favourites for the drop this year. ‘The Terriers’ are winless in 9 Premier League games whilst their last away win came at the end of February in the game against West Brom. David Wagner’s side has scored just 2 goals in 5 fixtures so far but maintained a good defensive performance apart from the games against the champions Manchester City and current Premier League leaders Chelsea.
