Huddersfield Town vs Southampton - Premier League Preview and Odds

August 26, 2017 15:00pm - The John Smith’s Stadium

Premier League

Huddersfield Town will look to maintain their 100% record in the Premier League when they welcome unbeaten Southampton to the John Smith`s Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Terriers could not have hoped for a better start to life back in the top flight, having won both of their opening fixtures. They kicked off their campaign with a 3-0 win away to Crystal Palace before edging to a 1-0 win at home to fellow promoted side Newcastle United.

David Wagner`s men have played some decent football along the way and have yet to concede a goal. They will be hoping for more of the same when they step out in front of their home crowd once again on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Southampton are one of eight sides yet to lose a game in the current campaign and will be keen to extend that record against their newly-promoted opponents. Since returning to the top flight in 2013, the Saints have established themselves as regular top 10 contenders and will be hoping to take the next step by qualifying for Europe.

New boss Mauricio Pellegrini has made a decent start but would have been disappointed that his side did not take all three points from their opening game at home to Swansea City. They come into this game on the back of a disappointing 0-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the midweek League cup game.

Betting odds and tips

This game looks like a tough one to call. The Saints have yet to play away from home this season but they did win four of their last seven on the road last term. Huddersfield just got the better of Newcastle last weekend but this game should provide a tougher test. As a result, the Huddersfield/Draw Double Chance looks like the best bet here.

You can back the Huddersfield/Draw Double Chance at 4/5 with Bet365.
