Manchester United Player Ratings: Lindelof and Mata disappoint in Huddersfield defeat

Share

Huddersfield Town have lost their last two league fixtures by a combined score of 0-6.

"They started well, but that squeezing game is good against sides in the division they were in last season, but in this division teams can keep the ball a lot better". However, since then they have not won in the last six games, scoring only one goal as their form has seemingly dried up.

With things going well for Mourinho's side and David Wagner's Terriers finding points hard to come by, it could prove to be a tough task for the home side as they host one of the favourites for the Premier League crown this year. On the right hand side of the midfield, Juan Mata will likely retain his spot after putting up an impressive display in mid-week against Benfica. A clean sheet would make it eight from the first nine games - a top-flight record.

Despite United's recent dip in performances, and the fact that Huddersfield will be much fresher than Mourinho's men, it should be a comfortable win for the visitors.

Kasey Palmer and Michael Hefele are ruled out with thigh injuries, while Jon Stankovic is out with a long-term knee injury.

Defenders Marcos Rojo and Eric Bailly are also sidelined, while Phil Jones is pushing for a return.
