Our tipster thinks that there is a case for backing an early goal when Sean Dyche’s Clarets travel to John Smith’s Stadium on Wednesday evening
Two teams inside the Premier League’s bottom three meet at John Smith’s Stadium on Wednesday night.
Both sides will be desperate to start 2019 on a positive footing as they battle to avoid relegation from the top tier.
Burnley will surely come into this match more confident than the Terriers on the back of a vital victory against West Ham United on Sunday afternoon
The first relegation six-pointer of 2019 pits Huddersfield against Burnley at the John Smith’s Stadium, with both sides needing three points to kick-start their push for survival.
Huddersfield desperately need a victory to avoid being cut adrift at the bottom. Saturday’s defeat at Fulham left them five points short of safety and nothing less than a victory will do for David Wagner’s side.
Burnley eased some pressure with a deserved victory over West Ham, leaving them inside the relegation zone on goal difference. A point would be enough to move them out of the bottom three if Southampton lose at Chelsea.
Huddersfield’s creativity is severely hampered by the continued absence of Aaron Mooy, who has not been called into Australia’s Asian Cup squad as he rehabilitates from his knee injury. Danny Williams and Abdelhamid Sabiri are also sidelined.
Wagner’s team selection will depend on what formation he opts for. Three central defenders with two wings pushing on seems most likely, as the Terriers will have to go for the win. Laurent Depoitre can expect a recall after Steve Mounie came into the side against Fulham.
Burnley’s team news is usually fairly routine, with Sean Dyche rarely making wholesale changes. However, he did make two key selection decisions against West Ham and both paid off, so Tom Heaton and Dwight McNeil are both likely to start again on Wednesday.
