14 points from safety. That is the gap which Huddersfield have to try and make up their final 13 games of the league season. They suffered a 5-0 loss at Chelsea last weekend, which was their third straight Premier League defeat. The Terriers have now earned just one point from their last 12 EPL fixtures. There has been just one home success for them this season (D2 L10) and they have suffered six consecutive defeats on home soil. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last seven league home fixtures.
It is just miserable reading where we look for Huddersfield. They have scored only the five goals in their 13 home games this season. Just 38% of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. Huddersfield have produced a total of one single goal in their last six league matches, home and away combined. Four of the five home goals that they have scored this season have been in the first half of matches. If they pull themselves out of this mess it will be one of the greatest escapes ever.
Arsenal earned a 1-0 home win over Huddersfield back in December
Arsenal are on a four-match winning streak against Huddersfield in all competitions
Three of Arsenal’s last four wins over the Terriers have been by a one-goal margin only
Huddersfield have failed to score in any of their three previous EPL games against Arsenal
Arsenal’s makeshift back line had a tough time of things in the 3-1 defeat at Manchester City last weekend. They continued their Jekyll & Hyde season. They have been brilliant at home, less so on the road. Arsenal are on a three-match losing streak on their travels, with defeats against Liverpool, West Ham and Man City in that sequence. Overall this season Arsenal’s away record reads W4 D3 L5 and they have earned only two points from their last 18 available away from the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal are yet to earn a clean sheet on their travels in the top flight this season. In total, they have conceded 25 goals, which is just over an average of two per game. But they have scored very well too with 23 goals in 12 road fixtures. 83% of the away games Arsenal have been involved in have ended up over 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in 92% of Arsenal’s away games. Three of Arsenal’s for away wins this season have been by a one-goal margin only. The Gunners have been drawing at half-time in eight of their 12 road fixtures (L4).
It is hard to see Huddersfield’s fortunes changing in this one. Arsenal have been poor on the road though, but still, even with that they should have the goals to beat the Terriers. Arsenal to win by a two-goal margin.

Chelsea had a miserable time of things on Wednesday night as they were smashed by Bournemouth. Once again it was a lot of possession and no end product for the Blues. They will be hoping to turn around their fortunes at Stamford Bridge on the weekend as they play bottom side Huddersfield. Read our Chelsea v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
The Blues could not get themselves going on Wednesday night as they suffered 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth. That leaves Chelsea on back-to-back defeats in the league now having lost at Arsenal in their previous game. So their battle for a top-four finish is becoming increasingly stressful for them now.
But they do get back to home soil where they have a W7 D4 L1 record on the board for the season. Chelsea took a 2-1 victory over Newcastle in their last league home fixture snapping a run of two without a victory. The goals in their win over Newcastle are Chelsea’s only goals in their last three league home fixtures.
So Chelsea are missing something up front. Overall this season they have scored 21 goals at Stamford Bridge, conceding nine. Less than half of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 42% of their home fixtures. But now home and away combined they only have taken two in their last eight played.
Chelsea have scored in just one of their last four games home and away combined. In none of their home games have Chelsea been trailing at the halftime break this season. Still, only Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool have better home records than Chelsea do this season. Chelsea have the fourth best home record in the top flight currently.
The Blues eased to a 3-0 win at Huddersfield the season’s first meeting
The Blues have won four of the last five meetings with the Terriers (D1)
Chelsea have scored at least two goals four of their last five against Huddersfield
The Terriers have scored in each of their last five visits to Stamford Bridge
Huddersfield had new manager Jan Siewert in charge for the first time on Tuesday night as they faced a home game against Everton. The Terriers conceded early in the game and were never able to recover even with Everton going down to 10 men.
Huddersfield’s away from this season is pretty bad at W1 D3 L7, but still, that is likely better than what they have produced at home. Across their sequence of away games, Huddersfield have scored only the eight goals. They have scored just one goal in their last four out on the road in the top flight.
Across their last five games away from the John Smith’s Stadium Huddersfield have collected just one point, which came in a 0-0 draw at Cardiff in their last road game. Huddersfield have conceded an average of 1.9 goals per away game this season. The Terriers have two clean sheets on their travels.
Overall home and away it is an 11 match winless streak that Huddersfield are on in the top flight and from their 11 away games so far they have been losing at the halftime break in five of them. Surprisingly though even though they are bottom of the league they don’t have the worst away record. Cardiff and Fulham have done worse than they have on their travels. Huddersfield though are the lowest scoring side in the top flight by some distance.
Chelsea should record a comfortable home victory in this one and strengthen their shot at getting back into the race for a top-four finish. We have to have a serious look at the Chelsea to win to nil option.

The Terriers are still rooted to the foot of the Premier League table and things are looking dire for them now as they start Tuesday night’s action 11 points away from safety. Everton have not had the greatest of seasons at all away from home, but they may be confident of three points in this one. Read our Huddersfield v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
The Terriers are firmly rooted to the foot of the Premier League table and they don’t seem to have a way out of their current predicament. Last time out in the Premier League, Huddersfield suffered a 0-3 defeat at home against Manchester City. That is nine defeats now in their last 10 League fixtures played (D1). There are currently on a five-match losing streak on home soil and they have posted just a W1 D2 L9 home record this season. Across their sequence of home games this season in the top flight, Huddersfield have managed just five goals in total. Three of those though have been in their last five home fixtures.
Huddersfield have conceded an average of 1.6 goals per game against them and they are now 13 points worse off than they were after 23 games of last season’s campaign. The Terriers are on a six-match winless streak on home soil with no clean sheet in that sequence. Huddersfield have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three home fixtures. Five of their nine defeats at home this season in the EPL have been by a one-goal margin. Huddersfield have the worst home record of all sides in the Premier League this season, they are also the lowest scoring side in the entire division.
There was a 1-1 draw between them when they met at Goodison Park back in September
Everton are undefeated in 10 games against Huddersfield
The Terriers have failed to win any of their last four home games against the Toffees (D3 L1)
Each of the three previous Premier League meetings have ended under 2.5 goals
Everton’s season really has fallen apart since the start of December. They have taken just two victories in their last 10 League games played. Away from home, they have only managed the two victories this season in the top flight (D3 L6) so have been anything but reliable. They have only managed the one clean sheet on their travels as well. The Toffees have lost four of their last five road games in the top flight, the exception being a win on a visit to Burnley.
Everton have been level at the halftime break in eight of their 11 away games this season. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last five away games and the Toffees have conceded 64% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures. Everton have scored 71% of their away goals this season after the halftime break. The Toffees have opened the scoring in four of their 11 road games. There are only four teams in the League currently who have earned fewer away points than Everton have done this season. Their last away game saw them suffer a 2-1 loss at Southampton.
Huddersfield just have no form behind them to even warrant backing getting a draw out of this one. Everton have been poor with performances recently but still, we have to back the away victory.

Bottom side Huddersfield saw boss David Wagner walk away this week and that leaves them facing a massive hole to get out of.

Huddersfield suffered a harsh defeat on home soil against Newcastle last weekend in Premier League action. That was their fourth straight defeat in the top flight. So their current form is down and it has left them W1 D2 L6 at home this season in the EPL. They have lost their last two there. In their nine home games, Huddersfield have managed to produce just the three goals, conceding eleven. Just 22% of their home games have gone above 2.5 goals. Actually, less than half of the games at the John Smiths this season have made it over 1.5 goals
Huddersfield do have two clean sheets at home this season but they have failed to score in 67% of their home fixtures. They don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last three on home soil. Going back to those three home goals which they have scored, they have been netted in the first period of matches. In four of their nine home fixtures so far the Terriers have been losing at the halftime break in four of them (W2 D3). No team has claimed fewer home points in this season’s EPL than Huddersfield have
There were two draws in the EPL between these two last season
Huddersfield are unbeaten in three home games against the Saints (W2 D1)
There was a 0-0 between them at the John Smith’s last term
Just one of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
The Saints earned a much-needed win last weekend. They came up with a late winner to bank a 3-2 success at St Mary’s against Arsenal. They had been on a twelve match winless streak before that victory. They have to work on turning around their away form though because they are on a four-match losing streak on their travels. They have taken one point from their last seven road games in the Premier League. Overall this season Southampton have only picked up a W1 D1 L7 record.
In their nine road games in the top flight, the Saints have managed seven goals. Of those seven goals, five of them have come after the halftime break. Southampton have conceded an average of 2.2 goals per away game. They have only scored in 56% of their away games this season. They have actually lost one-third of their away fixtures to nil this season and yet despite all of that, 33% of Southampton’s away games have gone above 3.5 goals. In none of their away games have Southampton been leading at halftime (D4 L%). They have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven league games.
Confidence is everything. Huddersfield look short of it while Southampton will have had a tremendous fill of it after beating last weekend. We are going to predict that the Saints can build on that success last weekend. Away win.

This is a clash between two sides looking to snap themselves out of slumps. Huddersfield are currently on a three-match losing streak in the league and start the weekend in the drop zone, with the poorest offensive record in the top flight. Newcastle have managed one point from the last nine available and would see the Terriers pull level with them if they lose. Read our Huddersfield v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 8:43 p.m.)
The Terriers went to Arsenal last weekend and suffered a 1-0 loss after putting in a decent showing against an in-form team. That still was their third defeat on the bounce in the top flight and they are back in trouble once again. It is a slump after looking as if they had just turned the corner having taken seven points of nine. Their home form in the top flight reads W1 D2 L5 so far. There was a loss for them in their last home game, a 2-1 reverse against Brighton. The Terriers have struggled for goals, having netted just three at home so far, conceding 10.
They have failed to score in 62% of home games. There has been a home clean sheet for them in 25% of fixtures though so that is some kind of positive. Just 25% of games at the John Smith’s have ended over 2.5 goals this season. Another positive for Huddersfield it that they have at least scored in each of their last three at home in the league. But less positive is the fact that the Terriers have been trailing at half-time in four of their eight home fixtures
There were 1-0 home wins for each last season in the EPL
The season before in the Championship, they traded away wins
The home team has scored exactly one goal in each of the last four meetings
The Magpies lost 2-1 at home against Wolves in their last fixture and they have just hit a sticky patch with two losses in their last three games (D1). Away from St James’ Park this season it hasn’t been good from Newcastle as they have put up numbers of W1 D4 L2 so far. Newcastle though are unbeaten in their last three away games (W1 D2). In their run of away games, this term Newcastle have come up with just the six goals, conceding seven. 43% of their away games have ended over 2.5 goals.
The Magpies have earned a clean sheet in 43% of their away games so that has been a pretty decent defensive effort from them. They haven’t been losing at half time in any of their away games this season either. Five of their seven away games have been level at the end of the first half so that’s a strong trend to have a look at. The Magpies haven’t hit a second-half goal on their travels yet his season and there has been no clean sheet in any of their last five league outing for them. In just one of their away games, this season have Newcastle scored the opening goal of a game. Only Southampton and Huddersfield have scored fewer away goals than Newcastle have.
Our prediction is going to be the home win and a much-needed one for the Terriers. They have scored in their last three home games while Newcastle have really struggled in away games against the bottom sides this season.
