Huddersfield Town head to Wembley on Saturday for a tough test against Tottenham. Spurs spanked them 4-0 when they met earlier this season, but David Wagner isn't thinking about that. His optimistic outlook has been refreshing in the Premier League this season.
His team has played some superb football, and they are currently 14th, 3 points clear of the drop zone. It is unbelievably tight down at the bottom, with just 7 points separating 9th and 18th. Plenty of experts predicted that Huddersfield were favourites to go down, but so far the Terriers have proved them wrong.
Wagner: We Can Adapt
David Wagner was in good form ahead of his team's trip to Spurs. He spoke to the media in a press conference on Friday. He said: To be honest, I think we learn lessons every single day and every single match we play in the Premier League.”
Wagner continued: “This is because we are so inexperienced. I think what the players have shown – and this is great to see – is that they are able to adapt and they are able to adapt quickly. We have found different set-ups against the top teams in the past and we will see what we will do on Saturday.”
It's All About The Mounie
If Huddersfield are to stay up, they need in form striker Steve Mounie to keep firing in the goals. The French forward has hit form in a big way in recent weeks, scoring 4 goals in his last 8 appearances for The Terriers.
Huddersfield splashed out a cool £13 million on Mounie and so far he looks like a shrewd signing. He went a long time without scoring after netting early on in the season. However, he has now scored 6 goals in 19 EPL appearances, not a bad return for his first season in the Premier League. The Huddersfield faithful will be hoping there is more to come from Mounie.
