Huddersfield vs Brighton
15th vs 12th
Another big game in the bottom half of the Premier League as Huddersfield look to extend their unbeaten run to four matches.
Brighton have collected just one point from their last three games and, with points on the line as well as the risk of gifting them to a bottom-half rival, the result is a tough one to predict with a draw perhaps the most obvious outcome
David Wagner’s new formation has helped produce a steady improvement in form, with Sunday’s surprise away win at Wolves giving the Terriers confidence, and they can take that into a match against a Brighton team which continues to struggle on the road.
That said, they’re not easy to break down – certainly, expect a more organised display than that which Wolves produced – and with Huddersfield lacking creative spark they could just let favourite-backers down here.
Town have, at least, scored in the first half of their last three games, while Brighton have done the same in five of their last six.
Huddersfield have lost just one of their last 10 home league games against Brighton (W5 D4), a 1-2 defeat in the 2012-13 Championship season.
Six of the last 10 league meetings between Huddersfield and Brighton have ended as draws, with both sides winning two games each in the other four games.
Huddersfield have won four points in their last two home Premier League games (W1 D1), as many as in their previous nine combined (W1 D1 L7).
Huddersfield have won two of their last three Premier League games (D1), more than they had in their previous 20 in the competition (W1 D7 L12).
Brighton haven’t scored more than once in any of their last eight Premier League games, though they have found the net in each of the last six (W3 D1 L2).
Glenn Murray has scored 40% of all Brighton’s Premier League goals (19/48) – the highest ratio of any player at a club in the history of the competition.
My prediction- Huddersfield to win 2-1 (10/1 on SkyBet)
