Burnley and Huddersfield are bound to clash. Both teams have had a rather rough time at it these past few weeks, but they are finally back and ready to fight again. The two teams have definitely had difficult matches so far and it’s unlikely that something will change. The best bit is that you can watch all games via our Live Stream solutions!
But meeting each other, they will have to at least catch a breather and stay farther from the precarious bottom of the overall competition. Of course, we reckon that Huddersfield will want to try and fight their way from the bottom. It’s very unlikely, though, because Burnley have half a league advantage already. And that truly is something. The stats looks as such:

Huddersfield – End of the Road
For Huddersfield, this may very well be the end of the road. Another defeat would consolidate their status of no-gooders in the season. Of course, it’s difficult to blame the team entirely as it’s most certainly not their fault, too.
There are just seasons when team don’t perform well. Look at what’s happening with Manchester United, for instance. The Red Devils have been suffering an embarrassing fate. Now, Huddersfield never had such a big claim in the competition to actually feel out of place.
Nevertheless, it’s always worth double checking. What are the current predictions about the upcoming game? The bookies expect Burnley to walk over Huddersfield with 2-1 and 2-0. This score seems plausible and we are definitely very likely to endorse such a turn of events.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield are not overly enthusiastic about their games with the opponents.
Burnley – A Chance to Break the Top Ten
Burnley, on the other hand, have their eyes on the prize as they will try to make a real difference in their own fortunes. The team is firmly decided on trying to break into top 10 and stay there.
This is a nice change of fortunes for the squad themselves, after suffering a few defeats on their own. They lost to Manchester United, too, but that doesn’t mean Burnley are hopeless. Now, if the team manages to defeat Huddersfield indeed, they will have to face West Ham.
West Ham are playing tonight and depending on how they perform, Burnley will have a real reason to be concerned. The team knows that the current form and position they have is dependent on so many other teams failing to perform or outperforming others.
This inter-connectivity in the EPL is definitely the reason for concern among some top-level professionals, but not disconcerting enough to merit a more serious response from the mid-level teams.
The Battle of the Middling
The EPL is indeed where teams can compete quite openly. The continuous rivalry allows some teams to progress whereas it bogs down others in a rut they can hardly climb out of. Whatever the case, though, both Huddersfield and Burnley stand a chance to win the game, even if it would make less sense for Huddersfield to do at this point.
Nevertheless, the teams in the EPL will always play until the very last whistle has blown. It’s how it works. Huddersfield and Burnley will throwdown like the best teams in the EPL, because they know that their name is at stake.
