Huddersfield v Swansea City Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
March 07, 2018
Kirklees Stadium - Premier League
Tied on 30 points, Swansea travel to Huddersfield in what could be a relegation six pointer come the end of the season. The Terriers lost to Tottenham last weekend, although won't be too disparaged and will consider this match far more winnable.
The Swans won the reverse fixture, in a match in which Tammy Abraham scored half of his goals total for the Welsh side. The on-loan Chelsea forward has subsequently gone of the boil, although marked an assist in his last start.
Huddersfield are still without creative midfielder Aaron Mooy, who has been out since February alongside winger, Sean Scanell.
Carlos Carvalhal also saw two key players forced to the sidelines last month, as Wilfred Bony and Leroy Fer were both ruled out for the remainder of the season. With Renato Sanches and Angel Rangel also injured, the manager has a threadbare squad to select from.
Huddersfield v Swansea Preview and Predictions
After an impressive start to the season, David Wagner's side has capitulated, and sit just three points clear of the relegation zone. Reassuringly for the Yorkshire club, there are two clubs providing a buffer between them and the Championship, as well as two clubs above them only on goal difference.
The Terriers have had a difficult run in recent weeks, and have only lost to Manchester United and Tottenham since the end of January. If they are to cement their place in the top division, Wagner will have to ensure that his side wins against the likes of Swansea for the remainder of the season, and will hope that Steve Mounie's recent form will last long enough to ensure that they do so.
Carlos Carvalhal has done what many thought was impossible since taking over at Swansea, and pulled his side out of the relegation zone. Not only are the Swans clear, but they're playing good football and have lost just one of their last 13 matches.
The loan move for Jordan Ayew has proved a game-changer for the Swans, and the forward has been the sides' best player since he moved. With a consistent goalscorer in the side, Carvalhal's team are unrecognisable, and will prove a real test for Huddersfield.
Jordan Ayew to score first at 5/1
The forward has scored in his last two games and is flying high at the moment.
Both teams to score at 11/10
Both teams will want to win and Swansea will come out swinging, with Huddersfield stronger on the counter.
