Dwight Gayle is on the bench so Rafa has gone for a little bit more experience this afternoon with right-back DeAndre Yedlin finally getting a rest.
This is what Rafa said about this game at his press conference on Friday afternoon:
“Tuesday night has given us more confidence for the future.” “It was important for the next games.”
“Huddersfield have same style vs every team. We’ll not change our approach. They’ve something to play for, that brings pressure for them.”
“Mentality is important for us. We must believe we have enough quality to win every game. We think about Huddersfield now, that’s it.”
“I remember people saying at the start of the season, ‘Rafa needs to address the away form’. Now we need to do it at home”
Just over half of our fans think we can win this game this afternoon.
Howay The Lads!!
