Swansea vs Huddersfield
English Premier League, Season 2017/18
Date: Saturday, 14th October 2017
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
The pressure is on Swansea from their poor start that saw 1 win from the 7 matches so far. Things look even worse as they are yet to win a home game this season and indeed suffered defeats in all three at the Liberty Stadium.
The Swans are coming on the back of a 1-0 loss away at West Ham, which is their fourth defeat of the season and third in the space of four games.
Scoring goals is another are of concern for Paul Clement as his team fired blanks in 5 of the 7 league games so far this season.
The Terriers were blown away by a 4-0 margin by Spurs last weekend which left them without a win in five matches since opening the season on back-to-back wins. But they did pick priceless draws against Southampton, Leicester and Burnley during the period.
Swansea vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head
The most recent meetings between Swansea and Huddersfield has to be dated back to their time together in League One and Two between 2003 and 2008. The Terriers won 5 of the 8 clashes then, drew 1 and lost 2.
The Swans haven’t won at home since the first in the series back in 2003. They drew 1 and lost 2 since then.
Swansea vs Huddersfield: Prediction
Huddersfield are certainly the better team on form, but they are short on options as Steve Mounie, Daniel Williams, Jon Stankovic, Collin Quaner and Kasey Palmer are sidelined with injuries. This could be a chance for the Swans to register their first home win of the campaign and inject some momentum to go forward.
