Huddersfield have lost eight straight Premier League matches but will hope to stop the rot against a nervous Manchester United outfit on Sunday.
The Red Devils have tasted defeat in their last five away fixtures and Town enjoyed a famous 2-1 triumph over them at John Smith’s Stadium last season.
We reckon 23/10 for the Terriers to avoid defeat is too big to turn down for our initial Huddersfield vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield took a 5-0 hammering at Liverpool last time out, but going behind in the opening minute at Anfield hardly helped their cause.
Jan Siewert was far from downcast and felt his basement dwellers reacted well to that early setback, staying true to his blueprint of positive football.
The Terriers boss said: “After the first minute, we were definitely on the back foot, but just with the result, because on the pitch we stayed on the front foot.
“That maybe impressed them, because after the goal, the next 15 minutes were ours.
“We showed our fight and said, ‘we go there and we go forward’, because this is my idea of football.
“I know this, at the end, will lead to results. We stayed brave and we had possibilities.”
Town have scored in four of their last five home fixtures, including when beating Wolves 1-0 at this venue.
Looking at the Huddersfield vs Man Utd odds, there is plenty of appeal in 21/20 for both teams to hit the target.
Last Huddersfield line-up: Lossl, Smith, Kongolo, Schindler, Gorenc-Stankovic, Durm, Hogg, Bacuna, Grant, Mbenza, Mounie.
Mathias Jorgensen will miss out through illness, while goalkeeper Ben Hamer has returned to training following a knock but will not feature.
Midfielder Aaron Mooy is also back in training and will be assessed ahead of the game after the Australian sustained a knock against Watford.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United looked set to boost their top-four hopes when Juan Mata put them ahead against Chelsea following a bright start at Old Trafford.
However, David De Gea’s nightmare run of poor form continued as he gifted Marcos Alonso an equaliser and the Red Devils failed to fully fire after that slip.
Romelu Lukaku defended the keeper, stating: “We are here to support him as players, but mentally he’s really, really strong, or else he wouldn’t be the best player for seven, eight years.
“There’s no doubt about his ability and he’s a leader in the dressing room. Now it’s up to us as a team to help and trust in his abilities.”
On the quest to qualify for the Champions League, the Belgium striker added: “Until it’s done, you keep believing. It’s something that’s in the DNA of the club.
“We have two games where we should give our all, play good football and hope for the best.”
United have looked to hit the ground running recently, but then tend to wilt if things do not go all their own way.
Roared on by a vociferous home crowd, Town won’t give up even if falling behind, so let’s finish off our Huddersfield vs Man Utd betting tips by taking 27/10 they score last for the fourth time in six home games.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Bailly, Young, Shaw, Pogba, Mata, Herrera, Matic, Lukaku, Rashford.
De Gea will start in goal for United, with back-up Sergio Romero (knee) injured. Eric Bailly will miss the match with a season-ending medial ligament issue in his right knee and Mason Greenwood is sidelined.
