Huddersfield News and Form

The Terriers had a 2-0 defeat out at Crystal Palace last weekend which was the result that final consigned them to relegation. That is with six games still to play, including this home game against Leicester on the weekend. It is a four-match losing streak that the Terriers are on at the moment. Their home record stands at W2 D2 L12 this season in the top flight, having lost eight of their last nine there as well. The only positive in that sequence was a 1-0 success over Wolves at the end of February. During their campaign at home, Huddersfield have scored just the seven goals.

Only 38% of games at the John Smith’s Stadium this season have gone over 2.5 goals. In total Huddersfield have failed to score in 56% of their home fixtures and they have lost eight of their sixteen home games to nil. On top of that, they have been losing at the halftime break in nine of their home fixture while they have conceded 62% of their goals at home in the first period of games. Just five times have the Terriers opened the scoring at home. No team has scored fewer EPL goals than the Terriers and no-one has a worse home record either.

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes should be looking for a good three points in this one to improve their current form even more. They beat Bournemouth 2-0 at the King Power on the weekend, which left them on a three-match winning streak. That clean sheet victory which they took over the Cherries was the first that Leicester have managed since January 1st this year. The Foxes have won four of their last five EPL fixtures (L1) so seem to be settled down into a good groove at the moment. The Foxes have an away record of W6 D3 L7 in the Premier League this term.

They are W4 D2 in their six games against sides currently in the bottom seven away from home, so they do have that going for them as well. The Foxes have put a total of 21 away goals on the board, with them having conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per game. Leicester have earned a clean sheet in a quarter of away games this season and both teams have scored in 69% of their away games. In their last away game, Leicester took a 2-1 success at Burnley, which snapped a four-match winless streak of road form (D1 L3). Leicester are on a seven-match scoring streak in the league, home and away, scoring at least two goals in each of their last three played as well.

Huddersfield v Leicester Predictions

Leicester to win: It is hard to imagine that any great response is going to come from the Terriers in this one, now that they are relegated. Leicester are the value option here and after their clean sheet on the weekend, back them to get another here.
