Huddersfield vs Crystal Palace
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 15th September 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kirklees Stadium (Huddersfield).
Huddersfield hosts the Eagles at John Smith’s Stadium for the second time this year.
The Terriers are not in their best shape as they come into this home game. Having not been able to scoop a win in their last 4 EPL games, we must agree that Huddersfield have found themselves in a harsh environment this season.
After being thumped 0-3 at home to Chelsea and a more divesting loss to the reigning champions at Etihad Stadium, the Terrier have now regained some from and are gradually gaining focus.in their last two league games, they have been able to settle for a draw.
In this home game, they may salvage their current state and show everyone, including their fans, that they are worth being in the highly coveted league. Particularly, David Wagner could keep with the similar setup that started the 1-1 draw with Everton before the international break.
Without a doubt, the German boss will be aiming for some fresh motivation from his side as they look to pick up their first win of the campaign, something which may prove to be an uphill task.
Crystal Palace opened the campaign with a cracking 2-0 win at Fulham but have since suffered three straight defeats against Liverpool, Watford and Southampton. This is not a good sign to Hodgson’s men.
Can the Eagles bounce back to form on Saturday afternoon with an away win? Well, this will depend on their agility and focus rejuvenate their team performance. This may be a hard game and thus they need to really measure up to the task ahead.
