Huddersfield Town have already started to make their presence felt in the Premier League owing to the strong performances that they have managed to manoeuvre. The Terriers are placed 8th in the league table, having collected 9 points from their first 6 games in the English top flight and appear to be a side capable enough of securing a place inside the rendezvous zone.
Under the tutelage of David Wagner, Huddersfield Town defied the adversaries and clinched a promotion to the top tier after defeating Reading in the final of the Championship play-offs last term.
Wagner has been marshalling his troops meticulously and in a shrewd manner this season as well and no wonder why the results have been quite decent for them. The glimpses of them have been very positive, although the continuation of the same would be necessary.
One of the most intriguing aspects in the manner in which they have plied their trade has been the resilience offered by their backline. The defenders have been top notch is discharging their duties and they have been affording absolutely nothing to their opposition to pounce upon. Their latest goalless stalemate away at the Turf Moor was yet another scintillating outing for their defenders.
Intriguingly, Huddersfield Town have conceded the fewest amount of goals so far this season in the Premier League with three goals leaked by them, after Manchester United and Manchester City leaking two goals each. One particular player who deserves truckloads of appreciation is their centre-back, Christopher Schindler.
The German has been rock-solid at the back and has looked very comfortable with the ball. Having emerged through the youth ranks of 1860 Munich, he cemented his place with the senior side of the Lions, before making a move to John Smith’s Stadium in the summer of 2016.
He impressed in the English second division last season and has looked trustworthy and calm at the back this time around as well. The 27-year-old has been reading the game in an astute manner and has been carving precise tackles and interceptions.
His form would be essential for the productivity of Town and where they finish at the end of the season. With 6 Premier League appearances to his name, Schindler has taken everyone by surprise as he managed to make 3.7 tackles, 1.8 interceptions, 9.3 clearances and 1 block per game on an average.
The defender is a strong player, is good in the air, has the requisite experience under his belt and has already started to show his mettle in arguably the toughest league in the world.
