Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Huddersfield made a flying start to the season, but the newcomers do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment. The Terriers have been dropping down the standings week by week and they are on a four-match losing run in the Premier League ahead of Saturday’s football match against Brighton. The two newly-promoted sides face each other at the John Smith’s Stadium and, no doubt, the hosts are eager to put an end to their four-game losing run in the national championship. The Seagulls, on the other hand, suffered a heavy 5-1 loss to Liverpool in their last league fixture and they could be low on confidence against Huddersfield Town. The Terriers will be without midfield Rajiv van la Parra against Brighton as he has to serve his ban, but seeing that David Wagner’s men are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Tommy Smith):
Tommy Smith is an English player who was born in Warrington on 14 April, 1992. The defender plays for Huddersfield Town, but he used to play for the likes of Manchester City and Tranmere Rovers during his youth career as well. His main position is right back and it is no surprise he has yet to score for the Terriers, speaking of league games. The defender, though, found scored his first goal for the Terries in the 5-2 FA Cup loss to Reading on 19 January, 2016. Tommy Smith made his Huddersfield Town debut on 31 August, 2013 in a 2-1 loss to Barnsley and he has been playing for the John Smith’s Stadium outfit ever since. He has been struggling with injuries during his professional career and on 31 January, 2015 he was airlifted to hospital with head trauma following a colliding with Joe Murphy, the Huddersfield Town shoot-stopper. Tommy Smith has yet to play for the England national team.
Highlighted Team (Brighton & Hove Albion):
Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club were formed in 1901. The Seagulls welcome their opponents at Falmer Stadium and the capacity of Brighton’s home ground is 30,750. The stadium was built in 2008 and it was opened in 2011. The venue is known for commercial purposes as American Express Community Stadium.
Brighton & Hove Albion compete in the Premier League and they play in blue and white stripes. The colour of Brighton’s away kit is green. The club made it to the FA Cup final in 1983, but English giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils.
Brighton’s main rivals are Crystal Palace and the Seagulls have recorded 35 wins over the Eagles. Frank Stapleton, Martin Chivers, Joe Corrigan, Bobby Zamora, Mark Lawrenson, Bobby Smith, John Crumplin and Frank Worthington are notable footballers who played for Brighton in the past. The Albion is Preston’s yet another nickname.
