Burnley: Translating success
Burnley had very good reasoning behind breaking their record transfer fee to bring in striker Chris Wood from Leeds United.
Over the past few years, the New Zealand forward has been a huge success in England’s second tier.
Last season, he managed a very impressive 27 league goals, five goals more than any other player.
Having proven his worth, he was finally snapped up by a club with status Premier League.
After just three appearances, there are certainly suggestions that he may well translate his success in the Premier League.
Wood has scored two massive goals already, one in the dying embers at Wembley against Spurs to salvage a point and the other in a crucial 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Come Saturday afternoon, Chris Wood is the man Huddersfield’s defence will be needing to keep at close quarters.
Passing the Terriers
David Wagner’s side have so far been defensively resolute and proven tricky to break down.
The Terriers at this moment in time are just one of four sides to have conceded fewer than four goals.
This being despite their back-four being somewhat unfamiliar with one another.
A real key addition for Huddersfield has been central-defender Mathias Jørgensen.
Having signed from FC Copenhagen in the summer, the Dane has seamlessly slotted into the club’s back-four.
Whilst, Christopher Schindler, Chris Löwe and captain Tommy Smith have all made impressive starts to their Premier League careers.
With Chris Wood in such fine form also, this should make for an interesting showdown at Turf Moor.
