Huddersfield v West Brom: Premier League preview
Huddersfield host West Bromwich Albion at the Kirklees Stadium on Saturday.
Huddersfield will be hoping they can rediscover the form that saw them lost just one of their opening six Premier League matches.
David Wagner’s side have just one win in their last nine matches in all competitions, although that did come against Manchester United.
Last weekend Huddersfield lost 3-0 at Liverpool, shipping all three goals in the second half. The result sees Huddersfield drop down to 13th in the table.
Is there pressure on Tony Pulis?
The Baggies find themselves two positions and two points worse off than Huddersfield, following last weekend’s 2-3 defeat against league leaders Manchester City. Jay Rodriguez scored to make it 1-1 in the first half before West Brom went 3-1 down.
Matt Phillips scored in second-half stoppage time to halve City’s lead. Tony Pulis’ side have now failed to win any of their last nine matches.
They will, however, take confidence from the fact that only two sides have scored fewer goal at home than Huddersfield this season.
