Swansea City v Huddersfield Town

Match Previews

Both Swansea and Huddersfield have been struggling for form ahead of their meeting at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

The Swans have dropped into the Premier League relegation zone following a run of four games without a win, while they are also yet to pick up a point on home soil this term.

Goals have also been hard to come by for Paul Clement’s side so far this season, as only Crystal Palace have netted less in the top-flight, while they have only won one of their last seven meetings with Huddersfield, although the two teams have not gone head-to-head since 2008.

The Swans may also have to do without two of their main summer signings on Saturday, as midfielder Renato Sanches is a major doubt with a thigh problem, while front man Wilfried Bony is struggling with a nerve issue.

However, Ki Sung-yueng and Nathan Dyer are both available for the first-time this season following respective knee and Achilles injuries.

Huddersfield made a fantastic start to life in the Premier League, winning their opening two games, but they are without a win in their last five and were heavily beaten 4-0 by Tottenham before the international break.

The Terriers are also suffering from a lack of goals (only one in their previous five) although they did secure a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Burnley in their last away match.

Boss David Wagner will make a late decision over the fitness of midfielder Aaron Mooy, who featured heavily in Australia’s World Cup qualifying success over Syria during the international break.

Forward Steve Mounie also remains a major doubt due to a heel injury, although Danny Williams is expected to be available following a foot problem.
