Manchester United will be looking to extend their unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign when they face Huddersfield Town on Saturday. On the other hand, newly-promoted Huddersfield will be hoping to end their six game winless run.
United are currently sitting in second place in the league with six wins from eight games. If they can keep a clean sheet on Saturday, it will mark the eighth time they’ve done so in their opening nine games, no other side have achieved this in top-flight history.
Huddersfield had a dream start to the season, winning their first three games. However, they have failed to win in their six league games and have lost their last two, against Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City. Huddersfield’s problem has been not being able to score, they haven’t scored in their last four games in all competitions.
Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he has the same players at his disposal as he did against Benfica, meaning Marcus Rashford has recovered from the knock that forced him off midweek. The boss also confirmed that he expects Zlatan Ibrahimovic to be back in action this year.
Michael Hefele, Kasey Palmer, and Jon Gorenc Stanković are all out for the Terriers while Colin Quaner and Steve Mounié are doubts for the clash,
This is the first time these two sides have met since 1972, a game in which United won 2-0 at Old Trafford. George Best and Ian Storey-Moore were on the scoresheet that day.
United have won 20 out of the previous 45 encounters between the two sides, with Huddersfield coming out on 10 occasions.
Lee Mason will be officiating this game, his first United fixture of the season.
Huddersfield have looked good at home this season, their only defeat coming against Tottenham. However, I expect the Red Devil’s attack to be too strong on Saturday. At the other end of the pitch, our defence shouldn’t have too much to worry about considering Huddersfield’s recent goalscoring slump. We should come away with all three points.
Huddersfield Town 0-2 Manchester United
