Huddersfield vs Fulham
English Premier League
Date: Monday, 5th November 2018
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Kirklees Stadium (Huddersfield).
The Terriers will be hosting their relegation zone counterparts, the Cottagers, for this Monday EPL fixture. This is the first time the two sides are meeting for a top tier fixture.
This home matchup for Huddersfield comes at a time they are stuck at the last place of the league standings. Notably, they are without a win and have only garnered 3 points from three draws this season.
Wagner’s men slipped to the bottom of the league following a 3-0 defeat at Watford. They must be unfortunate since they would have wanted to do better than they are doing to keep alive their dream to remain in the top flight. Danny Williams has been confirmed are the only injury concern for Huddersfield squad. It is a relief to the home side to have Ramadan Sobhi and Rajiv van La Parra returning from illness.
The Cottagers are suffering similar performance woes are their opponents in this matchup. They will be coming into this away game with low spirits. Having received four consecutive thrashings, they would not find a reason to smile as they hit the road to Huddersfield.
It is evident that the Cottagers are desperately in need to tighten up and get something in this matchup. In my view, they will come into the match in a bid to end their four-match losing run. They are in a bit of form as compared their opponents in this fixture. Joe Bryan is the only injury concern as Fulham travels to the John Smith’s Stadium.

Huddersfield vs Fulham: Prediction
This is an interesting matchup match between the worst attacks against the worst defense. Both teams desperately need a win here. Therefore, this could be a wildly open match with any of the team likely to outperform the other to redeem themselves from the relegation zone. The Terriers have not yet scored in their last 5 home matches while Fulham has been scoring at most 2 goals. We shall not see many goals here but in my view, the Cottagers have an upper hand in this fixture.
