Picking the Best Huddersfield Starting XI for Saturday's FA Cup Clash With Bristol City

Huddersfield Town will seek to put an end to a miserable run of eight consecutive defeats when they face Bristol City in the FA Cup on Saturday.


The Terriers currently sit bottom of the Premier League, whilst Saturday's hosts are currently in the midst of a promotion battle in the Championship. There are no easy games in football, and the Bristol City will certainly prove to be a tough test for David Wagner's men.


Here's how they could line up on Saturday.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Jonas Lossl (GK) - Given Huddersfield's poor form in the Premier League, they will be looking for something to lighten the mood, and a big performance from Lossl against Bristol City would certainly do that.


Erik Durm (RB) - With Florent Hadergjonaj starting the last match with Burnley, expect Durm to return to the lineup on Saturday.


Jon Gorenc-Stankovic (CB) - Stankovic has struggled to earn himself a place in Huddersfield's starting lineup this season, instead featuring in the cup competitions, meaning Saturday will give the 22-year-old another chance to impress.


Mathias Jorgensen (CB) - With Christopher Schindler suspended as a result of his red card against Burnley, Jorgensen will need to fill the void next to Gorenc-Stankovic at the heart of Huddersfield's defence.


Chris Lowe (LB) - Regular rotation option Lowe will likely be given the nod on Saturday after falling out of the starting lineup in recent weeks.

2. Midfielders

Philip Billing (CM) - Billing has certainly been Huddersfield's standout performer this season, and they will need a big performance from the towering 22-year-old if they are to avoid defeat.


Juninho Bacuna (CM) - The Dutchman has lost his place in the starting lineup, but he will be well-rested after sitting out the team's last three matches.


Elias Kachunga (RM) - Following the departure of Ramadan Sobhi, Huddersfield are not blessed with too many options on the wing, meaning Kachunga may be called upon once again.


Isaac Mbenza (AM) - The 22-year-old is yet to bring his best form to English football, but he will be looking for an impressive showing on Saturday.


Adama Diakhaby (LM) - A £9m summer signing from Monaco, Diakhaby has also struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League. Yet to register either a goal or an assist, he will be desperate for a good performance against Bristol City.

3. Forward

Laurent Depoitre (ST) - After Steve Mounie netted his first goal of the season against Burnley, Depoitre now needs to do the same as soon as possible. The towering Belgian will likely be given the chance against Bristol City, as he seeks to avoid falling too far behind Mounie in the pecking order.
