Leicester look a completely different proposition since the departure of Claude Puel. The Foxes have picked up 4 wins in their last 5 games and have reignited their Europa League challenge, sitting 3 points behind Wolves in 7th.
Jamie Vardy has scored 5 in his last 5 after scoring 8 across the previous 27 game weeks and 2 of the 5 have been assisted by Youri Tielemans.
The young Belgian has only made 7 Premier League appearances, contributing 4 assists and a goal already and seems to be flourishing at the highest level, removing all doubts surrounding his uncapped potential.
Despite what seems to be a constant progression on the offensive front, Leicester still haven’t been able to recapture their defensive strength of their title winning 15/16 season.
Prior to their recent 2-0 win against Bournemouth, Leicester hadn’t managed to keep a clean sheet in 13 Premier League games which shockingly is a stat beaten by today’s already relegated opponents, Huddersfield!
Huddersfield have kept 2 clean sheets in their last 11 games but that doesn’t quite have relevance. From the last 60 available points in all competitions, the Terriers have claimed only 4 with the 2 clean sheets being kept in the process.
Last week’s results went in a way which saw Huddersfield have no chance and sealed their fate sending them back down to the Championship,
One of the many issues of Huddersfield’s season stems from their lack of goals. Mathias Jorgensen (Zanka) is the club’s top goal scorer in the Premier League this season with 3 goals, all from centre back which is also on track to be the lowest goalscoring top goal scorer from a club in the Premier League’s history.
Not much to report injury wise, Kongolo will look to shrug off a knee injury for Huddersfield and both of Leicester’s injuries have been long term.
It’s impossible to look past a Leicester win and it’s also been priced very generously, @8/11 seems perfect to add into your accumulator.
