Huddersfield Town Vs Newcastle United Preview, Predicted Lineups, Key Players and Odds

Huddersfield Town have been waiting for this moment since 1972 and the Terriers are scheduled to take on Newcastle United in their first home match of this season after being back in the Premier League.

Huddersfield have been in outstanding form having won the Championship playoffs last season and they continued their brilliance by battering Crystal Palace 3-0. David Wagner has shown he means business and would be hoping to build on their emphatic first win in their very first match.

On the other hand, Newcastle United’s return to the Premier League had an ugly start as the Magpies were handed a 2-0 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur. Moreover, Rafa Benitez will be without his midfield enforcer Jonjo Shelvey as the captain got the marching orders for an alleged stamp on Dele Alli along with his two first choice defenders who are out with injuries.

Injury news and Predicted Lineup

Newcastle United

Rafa Benitez needs to adopt a plan B since he will be unable to pick a number of players due to injury. Florian Lejeune and Paul Dummett picked up injuries in the 2-0 defeat against Spurs and will have to wait to get completely fit.

However, some positive news for the Magpies is that new arrival Joselu might see some minutes in this match as Benitez would be very eager to guide his team back to winning ways.

Elliot; Mbemba, Lascelles, Clark, Manquillo; Hayden, Merino; Atsu, Perez, Ritchie; Gayle

Huddersfield Town

The Terriers don’t have any fresh injury concerns and David Wagner will almost have all the players available for selection. Jonathan Hogg, Nahki Wells, Martin Cranie and Gorenc Stankovic are the absentees.

Lossl; Lowe, Zanka, Schindler, Smith; Mooy, Billing; Ince, Palmer Kachunga; Mounie

Key Players

Newcastle United

The Magpies have to find out a way as they are expected to take a very cautious approach for this game. Benitez cannot afford any more casualties and needs to get his first points of the season at the same time.

Atsu looked pretty threatening in the first match as he took on the opposition defenders with ease and was in the mood to create havoc.

Steve Mounie

The 22-year-old announced his arrival in style as he netted a brace against Crystal Palace. Wagner would be depending heavily on the player to carry on his form. Mounie would be facing a makeshift Newcastle defence and will be buoyed by his opening day success.


Huddersfield Town- 6/4

Draw- 9/4

Newcastle United- 11/5
