It’s always easy betting against a team who are bottom of a particular division, especially if they have lost twelve of their sixteen matches at home.

Huddersfield have simply been out of their depth in the Premier League after previously staying up under David Wagner, with Jan Siewert looking ahead to the next campaign where the Terriers will be among the favourites to win the Championship.

Leicester arrive bidding to become the thirteenth team to win at this ground, with the Foxes having already won six games on the road this season and they are still enjoying the new manager bounce under Brendan Rodgers.

At the time of writing, the Midlands side sit in the top half of the top flight, with City having recently landed maximum hauls against Brighton, Fulham and Burnley. The latter victory was achieved despite having ten men on the pitch for most of the game.

Jamie Vardy is loving life since Claude Puel was dismissed, with Rodgers’ attacking brand of football up the striker’s street and we’re also seeing Harvey Barnes and James Maddison show plenty of brightness in terms of creating chances.

Youri Tielemans has also been a revelation since arriving on loan from Monaco and he was recently on the scoresheet for Belgium during a Euro 2020 qualifier, with Huddersfield unlikely to live with their opponents.

While Siewert oversaw a victory over Wolves, that victory sticks out like a sore thumb and the only other time that Huddersfield has avoided defeat since the end of November was during a goalless draw at Cardiff.

Even when Huddersfield recently led 3-1 at the London Stadium, the Yorkshire side conspired to lose the game and we can back the away team with a degree of confidence even if they are missing Harry Maguire for this match.
