What Trueform says for Leicester vs Huddersfield
Leicester have regularly achieved higher Trueform ratings than Huddersfield this season and have to be a percentage pick when they meet at King Power Stadium.
The Foxes won last season’s corresponding fixture 3-0 on New Year’s Day and can again see off the struggling Terriers.
We’re snapping up 8/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game as our top Leicester vs Huddersfield prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester do go into this game following back-to-back defeats against Liverpool and Bournemouth, but had previously beaten Wolves here and Southampton away.
The Foxes waved farewell to Riyad Mahrez over the summer and have been hampered by a three-match ban for star striker Jamie Vardy this term, but have still looked strong going forward.
City bagged a couple of goals in each of their victories, hit the target in losses to Manchester United and Liverpool and even struck twice when down to 10 men in a 4-2 reversal at the Vitality Stadium.
Leicester began brightly on the south coast before they were caught out twice on the counter-attack as the momentum swung in the hosts’ favour.
Manager Claude Puel says his squad need to unite to bounce back, stating: “We have to correct all this together and it will be important to find a solution because I think it’s a shame.
“For the next game, of course, it will be important to correct defensive aspects and our concentration and focus. To continue to move on, this is important.”
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Morgan, Pereira, Maguire, Gray, Maddison, Mendy, Ndidi, Ghezzal, Vardy.
Leicester will be without captain Wes Morgan, who is suspended after his red card in the defeat at Bournemouth, and Puel has hinted strongly that he will be replaced by Jonny Evans in the centre of defence.
Puel also suggested that Harry Maguire could be set for a rest, but with one change already necessary at the back it remains to be seen whether that will be the case this weekend.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield failed to build on an encouraging 1-1 draw at Everton when beaten 1-0 by Crystal Palace in Yorkshire.
However, Town laid siege to Palace’s goal for large periods, particularly in the second half, creating several chances before being made to pay for lacking the killer touch in the final third.
“We need more luck and we have to use our opportunities better,” commented David Wagner. “This is a very easy summary of this game.
“This was the best performance of the season, defensively solid, they looked in control and offensively they created opportunities, put the ball in the box.
“But we have to hit the target from 18 yards when we have a free shot and then we have this one moment from Wilf Zaha where he has shown all his qualities.”
We still feel the Terriers carry a threat up front, but 18/5 for the Foxes to oblige 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 in the multiple correct score market completes our Leicester vs Huddersfield betting tips.
Last Huddersfield line-up: Lossl, Kongolo, Lowe, Jorgensen, Schindler, Hadergjonaj, Billing, Mooy, Van La Parra, Kachunga, Mounie.
Jonathan Hogg will return to contention for Huddersfield after serving a three-game ban following his dismissal in the recent home draw against Cardiff.
Defender Erik Durm is available after a back problem. Ramadan Sobhi remains Wagner’s only absentee, with the Egypt international sidelined until after next month’s international break due to a knee injury.
