Burnley vs Huddersfield
KICK OFF: Friday 6th October 2018 | 16:00 CET
PREMIER LEAGUE WK8 | TURF MOOR
Will Huddersfield break their duck and Record a long-awaited Victory over a Rejuvenated Burnley?
Burnley secured their first win this season in epic fashion with the 4 – 0 thrashing of Bournemouth. Huddersfield are still searching that allusive first premier league victory this season, can they turn a corner?
Everything clicked for Burnley in their last match, with Ashley Barnes netting twice for the first time in 105 appearances, and Aaron Lennon scoring for the first time in 55 attempts. Dyche must have wondered if they were suffering from a hangover from last seasons success. The Clarets are now off the foot of the table, and they will be looking to build on this progress.
Huddersfield were on the front foot at the King Power Stadium but failed to hold onto their lead, and eventually lost 3 – 1 to Leicester. They are not creating many goals at the moment, and when they do, it’s never enough to win them games. They also have a habit of scoring more goals on away games than they do at home. Huddersfield will have the motivation to grind out a result since they host Liverpool next.
Burnley are in the ascendancy, Huddersfield is desperate to turn things around. A stalemate looks a good bet.
