Picking the Best Potential Huddersfield Town Lineup to Face Cardiff City on Saturday

Huddersfield Town travel to Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon in Saturday’s Premier League clash​.   


The Terriers are desperate to end their nine-game losing streak, extended following their 1-0 defeat at the hands of League One side Gillingham in the FA Cup third round.  


David Wagner is still without talisman Aaron Mooy, while Abdelhamid Sabiri, Danny Williams and Tom Smith are also unavailable.   


Here is 90min's look at the best potential Huddersfield Town lineup to face ​Cardiff City in the Premier League.   

1. Goalkeeper and Defenders

Jonas Lossl (GK) - After signing permanently from Mainz in the summer, Lossl has truly established himself as Huddersfield's number one. The Danish goalkeeper has played 20 times this season, and is aiming to keep his first clean sheet since November.


Florent Hadergjonaj (RB) - Hadergjonaj is likely to start on Saturday, as he makes up Huddersfield's backline. The Swiss defender has played 19 times this season, joining the Terriers from German side Ingolstadt in the summer.


Christopher Schindler (CB) - Schindler is undoubtedly the key of Huddersfield's defence, having made more appearances than anyone else in the squad. The German has made 22 appearances, and is certain to start in the trip to Cardiff.


Mathias Jorgensen (CB) - Jorgensen has been key for Huddersfield this season, making 20 appearances. The Dane is certain to start on Saturday, as he is also the Terriers' top goalscorer this season with three goals.


Terence Kongolo (LB) - Kongolo will likely start at left-back in the Terriers' four man defence, making his 19th appearance of the season. He has one single goal to his name in this campaign, since joining from Monaco at the start of the season.

2. Midfielders

Philip Billing (DM) - Billing will start in a defensive midfield partnership on Saturday, making his 21st appearance of the season. The 22-year-old is the Terriers' joint-second top goalscorer this season, scoring twice.


Jonathan Hogg (DM) - Hogg will partner Billing at the Cardiff City Stadium, as he has done throughout the campaign. He has played 16 times this season, and looks likely to make it 17 on Saturday.


Elias Kachunga (RW) - Kachunga will complete the Terriers' attack on Saturday, though he has not always been a starter this season. The 26-year-old has mustered just nine appearances this season, and will be eager to repay Warnock's faith in him.


Alex Pritchard (AM) - Pritchard will make his 21st appearance of the season just behind Huddersfield's striker, as he looks to add to his one goal this season and help David Wagner's side to a much needed three points.


Isaac Mbenza (LW) - On loan from Montpellier, Mbenza has made 16 appearances for Huddersfield and will continue to start in the Premier League. However he is struggling for goals, and has got just one assist this season.

3. Forward

Steve Mounie (ST) - After serving a three-match suspension at the start of December, Mounie is well and truly back for Huddersfield. The Benin striker has a goal and two assists in his last four games, and will be keen to add to his tally on Saturday as the Terriers travel to Wales.
