Both teams are on a very good form and are among the top rated teams in this championship campaign. There are no favorite in this game and the game could go either way.
The Terriers have only lost twice at home this season in all competitions and drawn trice, which is a superb form. However Newcastle having won away from home to Brighton $ Hove could repeat the same in this game and hand Huddersfield a 3rd home defeat this season.
We are expecting a win from Benitez and his men to keep them on top of the table.
