Boost before Huddersfield Town
The FA Cup is back this weekend, and one of the top matches is the all-Premier League clash between Huddersfield Town and Manchester United.
Of course, when the sides met earlier in the season in the Premier League, Huddersfield claimed their best result of the season.
David Wagner’s men beat Man United 2-1 on that occasion.
In a match Victor Lindelof must still be hoping to forget, Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre were the heroes for the Terriers.
Will lightening strike twice for Huddersfield this weekend?
