Manchester United’s run of six clean sheets came to a sudden halt away at Wembley on Wednesday, where they were comfortably seen off by Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur. José Mourinho’s men should be able to get back to winning ways on Saturday, as they play host to an out-of-sorts Huddersfield Town.
The Terriers made an impressive start to Premier League life under baseball cap-wearing Klopp clone David Wagner, but their last league win came back in mid-December, and they’ve slipped ever nearer the relegation zone. They’re now only a point and a place clear of Southampton and the bottom three, and the nerves are a-jangling. As we know by now, that probably means they’re going to pull off one of the upsets of the season on Saturday.
United will still be without Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Daley Blind and Marouane Fellaini, while Huddersfield are without Jon Gorenc Stanković and Elias Kachunga; Danny Williams faces a late fitness test. We’re sure you know who they all are.
