THE TEAM NEWS

HUDDERSFIELD

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Grabara; Bockhorn, Elphick, Kongolo, Hadergjonaj; Mooy, Bacuna, Hogg; Mbenza, Grant, Van La Parra

Unavailable: Mounie (Rested), Duhaney (Injured)

Doubtful:

  • Huddersfield manager Jan Siewert was brought in with promotion back to the Premier league in mind months before the Terriers’ eventual relegation last season and he looks to have had an excellent pre-season ahead of his first full season in charge.
  • The loss of Philip Billing to Bournemouth and Jonas Lossl to Everton will be felt but right-winger Isaac Mbenza showed in flashes last year that he could be a big player for the Terriers and they have managed to sign him permanently from Montpellier.
  • It will be interesting to see if Huddersfield can make a challenge for the title this season, with promotion via the play-offs a more reasonable aim, but they will face Derby County for the first time in over two years on Monday with the Rams in transition.

DERBY

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Roos; Bogle, Keogh, Davies, Malone; Huddlestone; Josefzoon, Dowell, Bennett, Lawrence; Waghorn

Unavailable: Wisdom (Injured), Forsyth (Injured), Carson (Injured), Thorne (Injured), Marriott (Injured), Holmes (Injured)

Doubtful:

  • Derby County lost out on promotion to the Premier League to Aston Villa in the play-off final back in May and subsequently lost manager Frank Lampard to his former club Chelsea, with former PSV Eindhoven manager Phillip Cocu taking over.
  • The Rams will feel the loss of their excellent loan-signings from last season, Chelsea’s Mason Mount and Liverpool’s Harry Wilson, who were responsible for 25 league goals between them.
  • Kieran Dowell will join the Rams on loan from Everton after impressing in a Sheffield United shirt last season and could well slot in where winger Wilson played so well.

BETTING ANALYSIS

Jan Siewert is yet to prove himself at Huddersfield but if Daniel Farke’s eventual success at Norwich is anything to go by the Borussia Dortmund product could take the league by storm. A home match in front of their strong support against a Derby side in transition could see a vital opening day win.

BETTING TIP: (Huddersfield to win) Match result
