Leicester City vs Huddersfield Town predictions, betting tips and preview: Foxes to enjoy home comforts, Leicester City vs Huddersfield Town – England – Premier League watch now.
Home advantage for Leicester City is expected to be the key when they host Huddersfield Town in their first match of 2018. Heading into the new year, staying out of the relegation battle will be the main priority for these clubs as they look ahead to the season’s climax in May and if they can each replicate their respective first halves of the campaign they should have no problem in doing that. If Huddersfield are to achieve a second consecutive term in the top flight it appears likely to be courtesy of their home results.
Leicester City travel home off two disappointing road loses in which they held 0-1 leads at halftime, now the Foxes welcome newly promoted Huddersfield Town too the King Power Stadium for this Festive Fixture. Leicester have been in prime scoring form, finding the back of the net in 13 of their last 15 matches in all competitions, expect the home side too continue that trend. The Foxes have also been shaky on the defensive end, only keeping 2 cleans sheets during that same span, expect the visitors too grab at least one away goal at the King Power. Look for the Foxes too get 2 or more goals against the Terriers.
Huddersfield made it three draws on the spin on Saturday, holding high-flying Burnley to a goalless stalemate at the Kirklees. David Wagner’s side have only lost one of their last six matches, and that came against champions Chelsea. A win for the Terriers would move them level on points with Leicester – albeit with a vastly inferior goal difference. Ben Chilwell is a doubt after missing Saturday’s match through illness. The left-back travelled to Liverpool but was sent home by the club.
