PREDICTION
Swansea’s hopes of beating the drop this season were given a huge boost last weekend when they beat West Ham at the Liberty Stadium by four goals to one. It was a win that launched them up to 13th in the table as they prepare to travel to the John Smith’s Stadium to face Huddersfield.

The task for Swansea will now be to bridge the gap to the likes of Bournemouth, while hosts Huddersfield need a win to make sure they keep daylight between them and the bottom three.

David Wagner’s men were brushed aside by Tottenham last weekend but in fairness that was something of a free hit. These are the kind of games that will define whether they stay up this season and they will do well to earn a point against an in-form Swansea side.

MEMORABLE MEETING
October 2017 saw the only previous Premier League meeting between the two clubs, and in what was a rare win this season under former manager Paul Clement, the Swans earned all three points thanks to a Tammy Abraham brace as Huddersfield made the long trip back to Yorkshire empty handed.
