STAR PREVIEW: Huddersfield v Man U

It still takes some getting used to that Huddersfield v Man U is a Premier League fixture and that goes for the layers too who seem to have priced this like a Championship v Premier League game.

The third most recent head to head between these two was back in 1972, so old habits die hard.

Huddersfield beat Man U 2-1 here at the John Smithโ€™s Stadium in October and whilst Man U got their revenge with a 2-0 win at Old Trafford just two weeks ago the current odds look just a little insulting to Huddersfield who are currently hovering over the relegation zone in 17th place.

Premier League survival or a continued good FA Cup run would surely be answered with the former 100 times out of 100 for Huddersfield. Their manager David Wagner will be acutely aware that in the next six weeks his side have matches against West Brom, Swansea, Crystal Palace and Newcastle – all games in which they have realistic chances of getting something from and could easily define their season.

For Man U there has been plenty of speculation about Pogbaโ€™s future with the club amid rumours that he is unhappy with his lot and regrets the move from Juventus.

Man U confirmed earlier this afternoon that Pogba will play no part after picking up an illness.

Man Uโ€™s under-23 midfielder Ethan Hamilton has been promoted to the first-team squad and could start.
