Match Preview: Premier League, Huddersfield v. Leicester
DATE: 15.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK
So far City have done as
predicted, and no bonuses, falling flat against better teams and
doing what expected at home versus a newly promoted side
The Huddersfield game is another must win for City, who needs a dig
out points from games like this. To get zero away to Manchester
United and Arsenal and another zero at home to Chelsea
is of course nothing to be surprised about.
Shakespeare has not impressed so far, doing what he can, picking a
good starting 11. The fact that Danny Drinkwater is gone and not
really replaced is a great worry, because the players who have
arrived are different in style.
City defender Christian Fuchs is uncertain, then Ben Chilwell will
be the one to replace him, easy choice. The other player that could
be absent is Matty James, who is struggling with a foot injury afte
the Chelsea game. Iborra could get his league debut away to
Andy King is a clear alternative, and always a player that delivers
what you expect and can cope with teams like Huddersfield. When
playing the better opponents, King becomes a bit "invisible" and
never influences the game.
We hope to see Iheanacho from start as well. It's time to step up,
make a choice, and play Vardy and Iehanacho up front together.
Mahrez is definately playing and Albrighton should also be in the
team. Iborra and Ndidi could be the pair in the centre of midfield.
The team selection we would like to see, is a four four two:
Schmeichel - Simpson, Maguire, Morgan, Chilwell - Iborra, Ndidi,
Albrighton, Mahrez - Iheanacho, Vardy
The last time City played against Huddersfield in a top flight game
was back in the 1971-72 season. City were newly promoted from the
2nd tier. City stayed up and Huddersfield was relegated that season.
The games ended, at Filbert Street, 2-0, at Leeds Road, 2-2.
Ally Brown and David Nish scored at Leeds Road, City had the
following classical line up,
Shilton, Whitworth, Nish, Sjoberg, Cross, Farrington, Kellard,
Sammels, Glover, Brown, Fern
At home Weller and Sammels scored in the 2-0 winner, this was the
team on the day,
Shilton, Whitworth, Nish, Sjoberg, Cross, Weller, Sammels,
Birchenall, Tomlin, Brown, Fern
Among foxes who also have appeared for Huddersfield, there are a few,
but the legend is of course Frank Worthington, who City signed from
Huddersfield. One probably starting the game tomorrow is Ben
Chilwell, who was on loan at John Smith's two seasons ago.
Iwan Roberts and Ian Banks are other players with a past at both
