We take a look at tonight’s Premier League clash between Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United. Huddersfield couldn’t have made a more impressive start to their debut Premier League season with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace. They now get a chance to play their first home game of the season and will be out to continue their early season form.
When: Sunday, August 20, 10.30pm (AEST)
Where: John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield
It will be a fantastic occasion for the Terriers to play their opening home game of the season especially after such a great start to the EPL.
Round 1 away from home and a 3-0 scoreline will have the fans in great voice for this one.
Socceroos star Aaron Mooy couldn’t have asked for a better start to his EPL career.
A win, 3 goals for his team and 2 assists away from home.
If he needed to get a feel and find his way in, this game certainly would have helped.
There’ll be tougher afternoons for sure but a great start all the same.
Rafa Benitez and plenty of the players would have been extremely annoyed at the pettiness of Jonjo Shelvey’s actions that led to his sending off.
Newcastle supporters want to see their players compete in a way that is football related.
Strong in the tackle, aggressive in battle and positive with the ball.
I’m sure this will be relayed to the playing group and they will respond.
KEY BATTLE: Dwight Gayle v Aaron Mooy
Gayle is quite lively and works very hard.
Had an early sight against Tottenham when he got in behind but the ball wouldn’t come down and he shot over.
Newcastle will bounce back and Gayle will win his battle against Mooy.
Mooy will be the player for Huddersfield trying to pull the strings but Newcastle can learn from game 1 and put good pressure on the key players.
Huddersfield will be still on a massive high but can come crashing down here with an early goal to Newcastle.
That will stop the fans making the difference and Newcastle can grow into the game and get a very important away win.
