Leicester City v Huddersfield Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
September 18, 2018
The King Power Stadium - Premier League
Claude Puel's Leicester City face Huddersfield this weekend, with the hosts looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.
Theses two sides drew 1-1 in West Yorkshire in their first ever Premier League meeting last season, but Leicester won 3-0 at home on New Years' Day 2018.
Leicester will be without captain Wes Morgan, as he serves a one game ban, with Jonny Evans likely to come in as his replacement. Summer signing Caglar Soyuncu could return to the match day squad, but midfielder Matty James is ruled out through injury.
Huddersfield welcome back their own skipper, Jonathan Hogg who has completed a three match suspension, and manager David Wagner will make a decision on the fitness of four players later in the week.
Erik Durm, Colin Quaner, Ramadan Sobhi and Juninho Bacuna are all on the comeback trail.
Leicester City v Huddersfield Preview and Predictions
Despie losing their last two games, against Liverpool and Bournemouth, Leicester have still picked up two wins so far in the Premier League this season.
Huddersfield have not won a game this season, in either league or cup action, with Wagner's side sitting down in 17th place in the table.
Their are likely to be extended, even if it is just for another week, as Leicester do tend to have too much for the sides in and around at the King Power, and a home win is priced at 8/15.
In their six games in all competitions so far in 2017-18, Huddersfield have scored just two goals, and they will find it tough going against Leicester.
With that in mind, a Leicester to win to nil bet is at 5/4.
Leicester City to win 2-0 at 11/2
The Foxes are a force at home, and Puel will want to put their miserable performance against Bournemouth behind them with a big win. Huddersfield need to get themselves together, and fast, but the early signs look ominous for The Terriers, and it could be a long season.
James Maddison to score anytime at 7/4
Maddison has made a real impact following his summer move from Norwich City, scoring two goals and providing plenty of creativity from midfield. Even with the goal scoring threat of Vardy, Leicester needs someone to step up an take on some of the creative burden left by Riyad Mahrez.
