Burnley have picked up some impressive results this season, and they would be looking forward to the Saturday’s league fixture against Huddersfield Town at Turf Moor.
The Clarets started the season with a 3-2 shock win at Chelsea, and they are currently unbeaten in their last three fixtures – a run in which they picked up draws against at Tottenham and Liverpool. However, they bowed to Championship side Leeds Utd on penalties in their third round of League Cup during midweek. After five rounds of games in the league, Sean Dyche’s side have eight points and are placed seventh in the league table. Chris Wood has been in superb scoring form, and he will be the main threat for the hosts.
Meanwhile, the Terriers have made a dream start to life in the Premier League. They won their opening two fixtures, but they have picked up only two points from their last three league fixtures. They also have eight points on board, but they are above their opponents in the sixth spot on goal difference.
In their last away game in the league, Terriers lost 2-0 at West Ham, and they also lost to Crystal Palace in Carabao Cup during midweek.
Last time, these two sides played each other was in the 2015/16 Championship, and the Clarets won both fixtures with Dyche’s side winning the corresponding fixture 2-1.
