Newcastle vs Huddersfield: Prediction
Newcastle were wasteful in their 1-0 loss at Fulham last weekend. The game should have gone in their favour if they had taken their chances well. They are hugely missing the creativity of Georginio Wijnaldum, who left for Liverpool and Aleksandar Mitrovic, who will miss another three matches due to suspension.
Huddersfield won their first game of the season and it will be safe to say they have better experience in the lower league compare to their Saturday’s host. But they are playing away to a wounded Newcastle side. The Toons Army will be hungry for for topflight promotion and home advantage will highly favour them in scooping the maximum point on Saturday.
