📋 Team News: Huddersfield
Yuta Nakayama (Achilles tendon rupture), Lee Nicholls (Shoulder Injury) and Ollie Turton (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not available for Huddersfield boss Neil Warnock.
We are thinking that The Terriers could employ a 4-4-2 formation featuring Tomas Vaclik, R. Edmonds-Green, Tom Lees, Michal Helik, Josh Ruffels, Josh Koroma, Jonathan Hogg, Jack Rudoni, Ben Jackson, Martyn Waghorn and Danny Ward.
🗞️ Team News: Norwich City
Norwich City manager David Wagner has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Przemyslaw Placheta (Shin bone bruise) and Isaac Hayden (Knee Injury) are not able to play.
From our viewpoint, The Canaries seem most likely to play in a 4-1-4-1 lineup with a starting lineup of Angus Gunn, Max Aarons, Grant Hanley, Ben Gibson, Dimitrios Giannoulis, Kenny McLean, Adam Idah, J. Lungi Soerensen, Gabriel Sara, Marquinhos and Joshua Sargent.
We feel that in this game, Huddersfield Town are certainly able to put one past this Norwich City outfit, although one goal might not quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re therefore tipping a narrow 1-2 winning margin for Norwich City at the end of the match. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
