Picking the Best Potential Huddersfield Lineup to Face Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday

Huddersfield will be looking to make it four games unbeaten in the Premier League on Saturday when they face Brighton at the John Smith's Stadium. 


The Terriers won their first away game of the season last week at Wolves and can move out of the relegation zone with a victory over the Seagulls.


David Wagner is not expected to make many changes to his side as he looks to build on Huddersfield's impressive recent form.


Here is how the Terriers could look on Saturday.

1. Goalkeeper and Defenders

Jonas Lossl (GK) - A regular starter for Huddersfield since moving from German side Mainz in 2017, Lossl has played 11 games in the Premier League this season and is expected to start on Saturday against Brighton.


Florent Hadergjonaj (RWB) - Swiss full back Hadergjonaj has only missed two games this season for the Terriers and has impressed since moving to the club in January for £4.5m.


Tommy Smith (CB) - A product of the Terriers youth academy, Smith played a key role in his side's promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs in 2017. The 26-year-old is expected to line up as a central defender at the weekend but could be dropped for Mathias Jorgensen.


Christopher Schindler (CB) - Known as the player who scored the winning penalty in the play-offs for Huddersfield, Schindler is somewhat of a hero for Terriers fans. The German has made 94 appearances for the club and is a key reason why the club avoided relegation last season.


Terence Kongolo (CB) - Signed for a club-record fee from Monaco, Kongolo spent last season on loan before joining permanently in the summer. A quick, reliable player, Kongolo has made ten appearances this year and is likely to play as a central defender at the weekend.


Erik Durm (LWB) - Having made eight appearances for Huddersfield this season, Durm has established himself as the club's main attacking full back. The German defender won the World Cup with his country in 2014 and had a very successful spell at Borussia Dortmund.

2. Midfielders

Aaron Mooy (CM) - The scorer of both of Huddersfield's goals last week against Wolves, Mooy has been a revelation since joining the club from Manchester City. Playing in the heart of the midfield, the Australian's all-round ability makes him a threat to any Premier League team. If Huddersfield are to beat the drop again this season, they will need Mooy to provide them with even more goals and assists.


Jonathan Hogg (CM) - A crowd favourite renowned for his tough tackling, Hogg has made over 150 appearances for the Terriers and provides protection for his team's defence. The 29-year-old is expected to start against Brighton on Saturday with David Wagner preferring him to Danny Williams.


Philip Billing (CM) - Danish Under-21 star Billing is another product of Huddersfield's youth academy and is one of the club's hottest prospects. A defensive midfielder at heart, Billing has an eye for the spectacular having scored several goals from long-range during his career.


Alex Pritchard (CAM) - Having played ten times already this season for Huddersfield, Pritchard has established himself as a player who can unlock opposition's defences by playing just behind the striker. The former Norwich man was linked with a move to Brighton on numerous occasions but rejected them, a decision that didn't go down well with Seagulls fans.

3. Forward

Steve Mounie (ST) - After bursting onto the Premier League scene with a brace on his debut for Huddersfield last season, Mounie has struggled to recapture the form that he displayed last season. Goalless this term so far, the Benin international will hope to finally find the back of the net for his side when they face Brighton at the weekend.
