Newcastle United vs Huddersfield Town Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Newcastle United keep picking up points in order to keep them afloat in the Premier League with the latest set coming against Wolves in a 1-1 draw. The result could have been very different had it not been for Wily Boly’s injury-time equaliser after Isaac Hayden had given a lead for Newcastle just after the break. Huddersfield Town put up a decent display against Arsenal but still came up with a 2-1 defeat. Alex Iwobi broke the deadlock after 16 minutes, while Alexandre Lacazette’s goal just before half-time was decisive. An own goal from Sead Kolasinac was able to provide consolation for Huddersfield, who did come up with a decent performance.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Huddersfield may put in a lot of effort but they have not been clinically going forward. As a result, the club are likely to struggle once again against a Newcastle team that has been doing relatively well of late. Rafa Benitez’ defensive approach has not helped Newcastle going forward, but the creative addition of Miguel Almiron should help the Magpies in this regard. I would opt for a Newcastle win.

Benitez has with a very defensive setup at Newcastle this season and it has been a factor behind the club only managing 22 goals so far this season. Huddersfield are the worst scoring outfit by a huge margin after only picking up 14 goals. I would pick under 1.5 goals in the match after having witnessed a 1-0 score in the last three meetings between these two teams.

Newcastle United Preview

The Magpies have been able to keep the points table ticking along well with some decent results, but Newcastle cannot remain free of relegation with a return of just two wins in the last nine league matches. Rafa Benitez sees his team only one point above the relegation zone. There is a reason to be positive with Newcastle recently breaking the club record to bring in Miguel Almiron for £20 million. The former Atlanta United winger made his debut against Wolves but he is expected to start in the upcoming weeks. Almiron, though, needs a couple of weeks in order to get used to life in the Premier League.

Newcastle United Team News

Karl Darlow (elbow) is the only player unavailable for Newcastle coming into the match.

Huddersfield Town Preview

Huddersfield have shown improvement since the arrival of Jan Siewert but mere improvement in performances is not sufficient for the club, who are already 14 points adrift of safety. Huddersfield are looking certainties for relegation if the club do not show a sudden jump in results. The last victory for Huddersfield was way back in November when they beat Wolves; the club had just managed two wins in three matches but a failure to build on this run sees them become the new favourites for going back into the Championship.

Huddersfield Town Team News

Daniel Williams (knee), Chris Lowe (illness), Jonas Lossl (illness), and Isaac Mbenza (calf) are unavailable for Huddersfield.
