22-y/o in, midfielder out: The Huddersfield XI that Cowley should play v WBA



Huddersfield Town will be looking to kick start their 2019/20 campaign when they head to the Hawthorns on Sunday to face West Bromwich Albion.

Since making their return to the Championship last month, the Terriers have only managed to pick up one point from a possible 21 on offer.

Having recently replaced Jan Siewert with Danny Cowley, Huddersfield will be hoping that their fortunes improve over the coming months.

Whilst they did manage to illustrate some signs of promise during their latest outing against Sheffield Wednesday, the Terriers couldn’t prevent Garry Monk’s side from sealing all three points at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Now facing a daunting trip to West Brom, it will be intriguing see how Huddersfield fare against a team who have yet to taste defeat in the second-tier under manager Slaven Bilic.

Here, we take a look at the XI we expect Cowley to go with against the Baggies…

Having opted to utilise the 4-3-3 formation during last weekend’s clash with Wednesday, Cowley will stick by this particular set-up on Sunday.

Kamil Grabara is expected to start in goal for the Terriers and will be aiming to keep his first clean-sheet of the season.

Terence Kongolo and Florent Hadergjonaj will occupy the full-back positions whilst Christopher Schindler will line up alongside Tommy Elphick in the heart of defence.

Whereas Trevor Chalobah and Jonathan Hogg will keep their places in the Terriers’ line-up, Cowley may opt to replace midfielder Lewis O’Brien with Juninho Bacuna.

After produced an encouraging cameo against Wednesday, the 22-year-old may be able to add some energy to Huddersfield’s side at the Hawthorns.

Whilst Karlan Grant will be aiming to take his goal tally for the season to five against West Brom by operating on the left-wing, Adama Diakhaby should keep his place on the right for the Terriers.

Despite having yet to hit top-form for Huddersfield, Fraizer Campbell will be tasked with leading the line tomorrow.
