Huddersfield Town will welcome 2015-16 champions Leicester City at The John Smith’s Stadium in an afternoon kick-off on Saturday.
The Terriers made a dream start to life in Premier League with two consecutive wins, but they have managed to pick up just a point from their last two games. Last week, they suffered their first defeat of the season as they lost 2-0 at West Ham. Their exploits this season are still impressive as they find themselves sixth in the league table with a positive goal difference of two.
Meanwhile, the Foxes have managed to pick up only three points from their opening four games. Their poor start to the season has been majorly down to the fact that they have played Arsenal(A), Manchester United(A) and Chelsea(H) in their opening four fixtures. In their last fixture, they lost 1-2 to the current league champions at home.
Foxes’ only points this season have come via the 2-0 home win over Brighton. The trip to the Terriers would be a good opportunity for Craig Shakespeare’s side to start compensating for their poor start.
Last time these two sides played each other was during the 2013-14 Championship. The Foxes won both the games that season with a 2-0 win in the corresponding fixture.
