Leicester City vs Huddersfield Town Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Claude Puel’s Leicester City outfit come into the match on the back of a 4-2 loss against Bournemouth. The score looks rather decent thanks to the late goals from Marc Albrighton and James Madison. Bournemouth had raced to a 4-0 lead thanks to goals from Ryan Fraser (2), Joshua King (penalty), and Adam Smith. Huddersfield Town’s winless streak extended with the team dropping to a 1-0 loss against Palace. Wilfried Zaha came up with a moment of magic in the 38th minute to provide the difference between the two teams.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Leicester City have had the better of the recent meetings with Huddersfield and the team will be desperate to get back to winning ways after back-to-back losses. However, losses against Liverpool and Bournemouth should not be much of a disgrace. A match against Huddersfield presents a great opportunity for Leicester considering that the visitors have managed a solitary point in away matches this season. Even though Manchester City are the only team to beat Huddersfield in the last five away matches, Leicester may break this run with a solid performance.

The lack of goals from Jamie Vardy is a problem for Leicester City. The 31-year-old came up with a remarkable 20 goals in the 37 league appearances last season. He has managed to score just once this campaign – even if he has been limited by World Cup exertions and suspensions. Leicester have averaged just under two goals per game with Huddersfield very poor in front of goal. I would back under 2.5 goals.

Leicester City Preview

After a strong set of results only a few weeks ago, Leicester City are starting to feel the heat. The absence of key players coupled with a lack of momentum can derail Leicester’s mediocre start to the campaign. Leicester have an important set of fixtures coming up with the team playing against the likes of Huddersfield and Newcastle in back-to-back games before they head out to face Everton and Arsenal in back-to-back matches. The potential for sliding further down the table is quite high for Leicester, but the return of names like Jamie Vardy should help the team.

Leicester City Team News

Matthew James (Achilles tendon) is the only player unavailable due to injury, while Wes Morgan is suspended for the match.

Huddersfield Town Preview

David Wagner’s men started the 2018-19 campaign as favourites for relegation and the likelihood of going down has been increasing with every match. Huddersfield were always aware that the season was going to be a struggle, but the lack of any offensive threat is starting to place the entire campaign under the major cloud of doubt. Huddersfield have managed a paltry return of two points from the first five matches of the season, but more worrying is a defence that has let in 11 goals already. At the other end, Huddersfield have been able to manage only two league goals with little going for Wagner’s men.

Huddersfield Town Team News

Juninho Bacuna (knock), Ramadan Sobhi (knee), and Collin Quaner (knock) are missing from action for Huddersfield.
