David Wagner to make 2 changes – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Huddersfield Town lineup to face Swansea City
Huddersfield’s league form in terms of results has been a little hit-and-miss, which is not surprising in their situation. However, a home match this weekend against Swansea presents them with a great chance of securing a valuable three points.
The Swans have been in great form since the arrival of Carlos Carvalhal as manager but they remain one of the weaker squads in the league overall, If the Terriers are to get out of trouble and survive their first season in the Premier League, they must do to them what they did to Bournemouth here last time out.
Aaron Mooy and Sean Scannell are out with knee and shoulder injuries respectively which is a blow. Luckily for them, the acquisition of Alex Pritchard in January has eased the problems caused by the duo’s absence somewhat. Meanwhile, Collin Quaner left the field early against Spurs and he may also be sidelined.
Predicted Huddersfield Town XI
Manager: David Wagner
GK – Jonas Lossl
An ever-present in the Terriers’ side this season and a shoo-in to start once again.
RB – Florent Hadergjonaj
The Swiss full-back’s name may be borderline unpronounceable but he’s done well enough and can provide good attacking support down the right.
CB – Mathias Jorgensen
Huddersfield’s relative success is due to having a solid, settled centre-back pairing and they should be together again this weekend.
CB – Chris Schindler
The German centre-back has missed only one Premier League game this season and should be good to go again.
LB – Terence Kongolo
Wagner has plenty of options in this position so Kongolo must be showing plenty on the training ground.
CM – Danny Williams
The American midfielder will have to be at his very best this week in protecting the defence.
CM – Jonathan Hogg
Goals are in short supply and Hogg is another player who may have expected one or two by now but his main job is to act as defensive cover this time.
AMR – Tom Ince
Arguably he’s now had enough chances at the top level and one goal in 28 PL games this season doesn’t read well. That said, he remains capable of causing problems and will probably replace Quaner.
AMC – Alex Pritchard
One of a number of Norwich City boys proving, or about to prove their Premier League quality, and he’s made a difference since he came in during January.
AML – Rajiv van La Parra
Has stepped up really well this season and will be vital in providing chances to the front man.
ST – Steve Mounie
Started the season brilliantly before having a quiet patch and remains capable of grabbing a crucial goal.
