Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Despite taking the lead in Saturday’s football match against Liverpool, Leicester City eventually suffered a 2-1 loss at Anfield. The Foxes, though, remained in the top half of the standings and they will be looking to put an end to their four-game winless run in the national championship when they welcome Huddersfield Town at their King Power Stadium. Over the years Leicester City have turned their stadium into a real fortress and they are eyeing their fifth home win of the season. Jamie Vardy found the net in the 2-1 loss to Liverpool at the weekend, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. The Terriers, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Burnley at the weekend,with the team extending their unbeaten run in the English top flight to four games. Huddersfield Town, though, often struggle on the travels and we predict the Foxes will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Christian Fuchs):
Christian Fuchs is an Austrian defender born on 7th April 1986, who has gone on to become one of the most famous footballers in history of the national team. The left back played for Wiener Neustadt and SV Mattersburg on domestic stage before securing a high-profile move to Bochum in the summer of 2008. Fuchs played for VFL Bochum, Mainz and Schalke in Germany, putting in some strong showings, but it was a free transfer to then Premier League strugglers Leicester City that would make him a household name. The left-sided defender played an important role in the club’s transition from relegation strugglers to genuine title contenders, earning worldwide praise for his performances on the left hand side. Very strong in defensive tasks and possessing an excellent left foot, Fuchs has contributed to quite a few goals his teammates have scored over the years, and he has also become an indispensable member of the Austria national team that secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals in France in style, earning over 70 caps in the process.
Highlighted Team (Huddersfield Town):
Back in 1926 Huddersfield Town became the first English club to win three straight domestic trophies. Since 1908 the Terriers were playing at Leeds Road, but in 1994 John Smith’s Stadium became home of Huddersfield Town. The club play in the English second tier (Championship) and the colour of the their home kit is blue and white (stripes).
Huddersfield Town were founded in 1910 and just three years later they entered the Football League. In 1926 the Terriers won their last domestic trophy, but they did well finishing runners up in the FA Cup 1920. The club’s biggest rivals are Leeds United and it has to be noted that Huddersfield Town have better head-to-head record of the two teams.
Bradford City are considered Huddersfield’s local rivals as well, but there are small rivalries with Barnsley, Halifax Town, Manchester City and Oldham Athletic. The club’s chairman is Dean Hoyle.
