Tyrese loves playing Huddersfield, but don’t think he will this weekend
Stoke return after the international break looking for a good reaction from the 3-0 loss to Fulham before the break.
Stoke & Huddersfield have been humbled by Fulham so far this season cementing their place as the team to beat this season.
Huddersfield look a different prospect from the sides in previous seasons. New manager Carlos Corberán has changed their style and are creating a fair few chances to win games.
How have we faired in previous meetings.
Saturday’s fixture will be the 79th meeting between the two sides
Stoke wins 30
Huddersfield wins 22
The last meeting
The last meeting between the sides was back in January, the game ended 1-1 in a game played at the John Smiths stadium without any fans due to Covid.
The last game at the bet365 stadium between the two sides was a much more lively affair, Stoke win the game 4-3. Pity Tyrese Campbell won’t be fit to play this weekend as he does love scoring a brace against Huddersfield.
Form (last 4 games)
Swansea 1-3 Stoke
Stoke 1-0 Forest
Stoke 2-0 Doncaster (cup)
Fulham 3-0 Stoke
Huddersfield 1-0 Preston
Sheff United 1-2 Huddersfield
Huddersfield 1-2 Everton (cup)
Huddersfield 4-0 Reading
Huddersfield sit one place above Stoke in the league table in 5th place. They have a plus 2 goal difference where as Stoke’s heavy loss to Fulham puts us back to a plus 1 GD.
Who’s the threat
Huddersfield’s main threat so far this season has come from the right wing. Sorba Thomas has been on fire so far, scoring once and assisting 4 league goals
How could Stoke set up for the game.
Still a question on the fitness of Nick Powell, but his inclusion would be the only difference to this side in place of Clucas I’d of thought
