Huddersfield take on Tottenham on Saturday afternoon looking for their first win of the season against a Tottenham side who got back to winning ways last time out against Brighton.
Huddersfield have had a tough start to the season picking up just 2 points across 6 games. Within those 6 games the Terriers have conceded 14 goals whilst scoring only 3. David Wagner’s side have put in spirited performances but have lacked the quality in attack to trouble teams consistently throughout games, which in turn puts more pressure on the defence. Huddersfield’s woes in front of goal have seen them fail to score in 5 straight home matches and have scored just once in their last 9 games in front of their own fans. Spurs meanwhile have found the net at least once in 23 of 24 of their last away games. Tottenham to win to nil in this fixture is priced at 29/20 (BetVictor)
Tottenham find themselves in 6th position in the table currently 6 points off the summit. Spurs have had a mixed start to the season with defeats to title chasing Liverpool and Watford and a very impressive 3-0 victory against Manchester United. Harry Kane scored twice in this fixture last season in a 4-0 win for Spurs and he is 5/2 (BoyleSports) to score first.
While Tottenham are likely to be the superior side, we can expect a low-scoring encounter with a Huddersfield side that have scored just three goals; two from long throws and one from a corner. Tottenham to win and Under 2.5 goals is priced at 5/2 (William Hill)
You would imagine that Huddersfield will be doing a lot of defending in this game with the quality that Spurs have in attack. With that in mind, we could look into the Card market. Aaron Mooy sticks out at 9/2 (Bet365) to be carded in the game. The Australian is the heartbeat of this Huddersfield team and his best work is done when going forward so it could be a problem for him if he ends up on the back foot, particularly with the pace and skill that Tottenham possess in that midfield area and attack.
Juninho Bacuna, Ramadan Sobhi, Collin Quaner are all doubts for Huddersfield after missing out on the previous squad.
Hugo Lloris is still recovering from a thigh injury while Michel Vorm has a knee problem, so Paulo Gazzaniga could again start in goal
Potential Huddersfield Starting XI: Lossl, Durm, Jorgensen, Schindler, Kongolo, Lowe, Kachunga, Mooy, Billing, Van La Parra, Depoitre
Potential Tottenham Starting XI: Gazzaniga, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Dembele, Son, Eriksen, Moura, Kane
Head To Head
- Tottenham have won their last 2 fixtures against Huddersfield without conceding a goal.
Key Stats & Facts
- In matches involving Tottenham this season, 68% of the goals have come in the second half.
- Just three of Huddersfield’s last 16 Premier league games have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
- 4 of Tottenhams last 10 goals conceded have come from set pieces.
- Huddersfield 7/1
- Draw 19/5
- Tottenham 17/35
Tottenham have been under scrutiny of late but their victory last time out will give them confidence in what will be a physical test for them. Spurs will look to their attacking prowess to overcome the Terriers at the weekend and I can’t see too much trouble for their backline against a blunt Huddersfield attack.
