A look at Huddersfield ahead of our forthcoming Premier League fixture.
The story so far
Having started life in the Premier League in promising fashion, Huddersfield’s early season form has deteriorated as of late. The Terriers have only won one of their previous five league fixtures, yet they occupy a respectable league position in 12th place.
David Wagner’s side have made a commendable start to their first ever season in the Premier League, and without doubt, their main highlight is their indelible 2-1 triumph against Manchester United at the John Smith’s stadium.
At the start of the season, many pundits anticipated that Huddersfield would struggle to perform in England’s top flight, yet they’re currently five points clear from the relegation zone.
According to the website Whoscored, Christopher Schindler has been Huddersfield’s best performer in the league this season. The 27-year-old is highly regarded for his proficient tackling ability and his tendency to dictate aerial duels. Additionally, the German defender has exhibited tremendous intercepting skills.
The stats reflect Schindler’s strengths, as the defender has averaged 3.1 tackles per game in the league while also averaging a tally of 2.4 interceptions per game. He has won two man of the match awards this season, while also providing one assist.
