Huddersfield TownHuddersfield Town Team News, Updates and Facts

Huddersfield Team News 

Though back in training, Laurent Depoitre will not feature this weekend, while Adama Diakhaby will also miss out. Isaac Mbenza and Karlan Grant face late fitness tests, with the latter a bigger doubt having suffered respiratory problems affecting his training.

Huddersfield Key Players

Karlan Grant – A bright spark in an otherwise disappointing end to a dismal season, the Terriers will hope the young striker is fit to play.
Aaron Mooy – One of the club’s leading players in their two Premier League seasons and the last person to score a league goal for them too, from the spot against Leicester.
Steve Mounie – Could start if Grant misses out – he is the last Terrier to score a winning goal this season.

Huddersfield Team Form

Huddersfield’s current losing streak stands at six games, having conceded four goals in both matches they have played this month. After relegation was confirmed with a 2-0 loss at Crystal Palace, the Terriers have lost 4-1 to Leicester – Aaron Mooy scoring from the spot – and 4-0 at Tottenham Hotspur.

Huddersfield Town Predicted Starting Line up

Expected Line up: 4-4-1-1

Huddersfield Town likely XI

  • Defenders:Tom Smith, Christopher Schindler, Terence Kongolo, Eric Durm

WatfordWatford Team News, Updates and Facts

Watford Team News

Troy Deeney is suspended after his red card against Arsenal, while Jose Holebas remains sidelined. Tom Cleverley is also not fit, though Javi Gracia says he is optimistic Gerard Deulofeu can shake off his foot injury to start. Roberto Pereyra is also expected to be fit.

Watford Key Players

Gerard Deulofeu – Two goals at Wembley to book Watford’s FA Cup final place and prove his worth to this team up front.
Andre Gray – Troy Deeney’s suspension should hand him a chance to start again as he looks to turn his run of games into goals.
Roberto Pereyra – Scored in the reverse fixture and has been enjoying a productive season for the Hornets so far.

Watford Team Form

Watford thrashed relegated Fulham at the start of the month to get back to winning ways after defeat at Manchester United. Abdoulaye Doucoure, Will Hughes, Troy Deeney and Kiko Femenia scored in that 4-1 win. Watford then followed that up with their comeback win at Wembley – Gerard Deulofeu scoring twice, including the extra-time winner, while Deeney had earlier levelled from the spot in a 3-2 win. Last time out, however, Deeney was sent off early on as Arsenal won 1-0 at Vicarage Road.

Watford Predicted Starting Line up

Expected Line up: 4-4-2

Watford likely XI

  • Goalkeeper:Ben Foster

  • Defenders:Kiko Femenia, Craig Cathcart, Christian Kabasele, Adrian Mariappa

  • Midfielders:Will Hughes, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Etienne Capoue, Robert Pereyra

  • Forwards:Andre Gray, Gerard Deulofeu

Huddersfield Town vs Watford Head-to-Head Stats

Huddersfield did the double over Watford last season winning 4-1 at Vicarage Road and 1-0 at home, but the Hornets hit back with a 3-0 win this season. Roberto Pereyra, Gerard Deulofeu and Isaac Success scored Watford’s goals in October.

HTAFC vs WAT Betting Tips

Huddersfield have not offered enough going forward and they have conceded far to many at the other end – something Jan Siewert has failed to fix since taking over as manager.

The Terriers have conceded four goals in each of their last two matches and they have lost their last six in total.

Even with Troy Deeney suspended, and with question marks over Roberto Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu’s fitness, Watford should win this.

The Hornets won the reverse fixture 3-0 and, while Huddersfield beat them home and away last season, that campaign seems a long time ago now.

Watford have impressed often this season, sitting tenth in the table and knowing they have the FA Cup final to look forward to as well.

The key will be not allowing complacency to set in, but with Wembley places to play for there is little chance of that happening.

Huddersfield simply do not look capable of stopping their rot, with just 14 points to their name all season.

Watford should claim an away win and, looking at recent form, it would not be a surprise if they won to nil either.
