David Wagner’s men slipped to another home defeat to Southampton on Saturday, meaning they are winless in their last five Premier League games, and with United still riding on the crest of a wave after their five-star showing under the new boss, more suffering could well be not too far away.
David Wagner is hopeful midfielder Jonathan Hogg will be available for the trip to Old Trafford.
Hogg missed last weekend’s loss to Southampton after taking a knock to his knee. Fellow midfielder Rajiv Van La Parra could also return nearly three months after suffering a back injury.
Tommy Smith (hamstring), Aaron Mooy (knee), Danny Williams (knee) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (collarbone) definitely remain sidelined.
HEAD TO HEAD
Manchester United have lost just one of their previous 14 games against Huddersfield in all competitions (W10 D3), with that one defeat coming away from home (1-2 in October 2017). Huddersfield are looking for their first away win against United since September 1930, when they won 6-0 in a top-flight clash. They’ve failed to win any of their last 15 trips in all competitions since then (D5 L10). Huddersfield have failed to score in seven of their last 10 games against United in all competitions, netting just four goals in total in this period.
