Spread: Manchester United -1.75

Total: 2.75 Goals

Manchester United (8-5-5) proved that all they needed was a change in scenery in order to start performing close to their full potential. They performed greatly in their away match against Cardiff whom they blasted by a massive 5-1. They were already leading by 3-1 at the end of the first half while Lingard scored twice in the second half for the massive 5-1 win. Prior to that they had suffered a tough 1-3 loss on the road against Liverpool. The Red Devils have now won just two of their last six matches in all competitions (2-2-2). They are now sitting at the 6th spot of the league table with 29 points, still eight behind Arsenal and Chelsea. Manchester United have been great at home so far (4-1-3), where they have scored 14 goals and have conceded 11. They also have a win, a loss and two draws at home in other competitions.

On the other hand, Huddersfield (2-12-4) are having a really terrible season and they have been in really poor form lately. They are coming into this match after a really bad 3-1 home loss against Southampton. Their opponents were better in the first half and were already leading by 2-0 but Huddersfield scored at the 58th with Billing. But Southampton scored another goal at the 71st minute for the final 3-1. That was their fifth consecutive loss, scoring just three goals in that span while conceding nine in the process. Huddersfield are now sitting at the 19th spot of the Premier League with 10 points, four below the relegation zone. They have by far the worst offense with just 11 goals and the 5th worst defense with 31 conceded. Huddersfield have been equally bad on the road (1-5-2) where they have scored 7 and have conceded 17 goals. They will be missing two very important players in Mooy and Sabiri, while Smith and Williams are also unavailable and van La Parra is questionable.

The two teams have only met on three occasions in the past and all were last season – twice for the Premier League and once in the FA Cup round of 16. Manchester United won that match by 2-0 on the road, while the two teams exchanged home wins in the Premier League.

Manchester United will be boosted by their home crowd and the coming of the new manager in this match. The players will look to impress the new manager and this looks like a blooming season for Manchester United.
