Huddersfield Town vs Tottenham Hotspur

Today’s lunchtime game sees Tottenham Hotspur travel to face Huddersfield Town at the John Smith Stadium.

 

Team news

Huddersfield have no new injury concerns to report.

Forward, Steven Mounie is still recovering from a heel injury whilst Danny Williams is out with a fractured foot.

Tottenham welcome Dele Alli and Jan Vertonghen back from European suspension here,

Christian Eriksen has recovered from illness so too will be available.

Serge Aurier starts his first Premier League suspension, having been sent off at West Ham last weekend.

Mousa Dembele joins Erik Lamela, Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

 

Form 

Huddersfield have made a bright start to life in the Premier League but stuttered this month, losing at the Hammers before drawing at Burnley then suffered two consecutive draws against Leicester and Burnley respectively.

Tottenham are unbeaten since losing to Chelsea on the second Sunday of this season.

They have scored three goals in each of their last two away games so will be difficult to beat here today.

 

Evenly matched?

60% of both teams’ goals have come in the second half of league games so far this season.

When it comes to fouls, again there isn’t much between these teams across their opening six games. The Terriers have averaged 12.5 fouls per game whilst Tottenham has an average of 13 fouls.

Tottenham however takes a march when it comes to shots, especially on target. They tend to have an average of 20 shots per match with six of them on target.

Huddersfield have averaged nearly half the amount of shots, notching up an average of 10.83 shots. Only 3.67 of those shots have been on target so will need to make any chances count today.

 

Prediction

In the old division one (before Premier League was formed),  Huddersfield only lost two of their 17 home games against Spurs.

That however will probably count for little because the visitors and Harry Kane will be too much to handle today in my opinion,

Prediction: Huddersfield 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur

Jake predicts: Huddersfield 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Result: Huddersfield 0-4 Tottenham Hotspur
