Huddersfield Town Team News
The last couple of weeks was not so great for Huddersfield fans. Their manager Carlos Corberan steps down because of a bad relationship with the board, and they sell a couple of key players days after he leaves. The potential players’ sales were the major factor in Corberan’s decision to leave the club after such a great last season.
Danny Schofield, Corberan’s assistant, took charge as the new manager. He has no experience which can be a huge problem. The major strength of this team last season was their unity. Corberan create a very compact team without a big star in the squad.
Huddersfield finished last season in fantastic 3rd place and now they are miles off that. No one sees them as a team who can finish even in the top 12.
They sign a couple of interesting players from the lower league and one to watch is Jack Rudoni who came from AFC Wimbledon.
The schedule is very tough in the first six or seven rounds and the Terriers will have to play against five opponents who are favourites for the top 10 by bookmakers. So, Schofield can be under fire at the end of August.
Burnley Team News
The new era begins at Turf Moor. Players such as James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Aaron Lennon, Nathan Collins, Nick Pope, Erik Pieters, and Wout Weghorst all leave the club. Sean Dyche is also no longer here and this is a totally new Burnley.
Vincent Company came in and took the job to become a manager. He chose to rejuvenate a squad and signed nine new players with an average age of 22,4. Burnley will be a very interesting team to watch next season. Young manager, a lot of young and talented players.
Scott Twine, Ian Maatsen, Josh Cullen, and Taylor Harwood-Bellis will be leading new Burnley with some familiar faces like Ashley Barnes, Ashley Westwood, Matt Lowton, and Charlie Taylor.
It’s very hard to predict where this Burnley team can finish. Everywhere from 1st to 15th, probably. A lot of new players, a new system, and a new manager. It will take some time for everything to come to the right place.
Burnley has a very difficult schedule at the start of the season with Huddersfield, Watford, and Luton in the first three rounds. It will show us what we can expect from them.
Last season they meet each other in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup. Huddersfield had won at Turf Moor with 2-1. This is their first meeting in the Championship since 2016. Six of their last 10 meetings finished with over 2.5 goals and seven with BTTS.
Team news and injuries
Huddersfield: Matty Pearson is questionable, and Will Boyle is suspended.
Burnley: Maxwell Cornet is out.
Huddersfield Town vs. Burnley Prediction
Both teams go into the season with unknown expectations but we can say that Burnley is in a slightly better situation. Huddersfield goes throw hard times in recent weeks and the atmosphere around the club is not great as it was at the end of the season. Everyone feels that this team will be much weaker without Carlos Corberan. On the other hand, Kompany has a lot of young players who want to prove themselves and a good mix of youth and experience in the squad.
Burnley is a slight favourite here and we will go with Clarets to win this game.
Prediction: Burnley to win.
