Huddersfield fretting after 2-0 home defeat by Everton

Sam Allardyce manager of Sunderland gives the ball to Aaron Cresswell of West Ham United during the Barclays Premier League match between West Ham United and Sunderland at Boleyn Ground

"Everton is a tough team; they were in trouble at the start of the season but now they are back to the winning way", Mounie told club website.

Everton are eighth in the English Premier League table heading into weekend's round of games, and despite the guarantees of a top 10 finish for the Toffees this term, it is safe to say that they have underperformed. - This was Everton's first away win in the league by more than one goal since Boxing Day 2016.

Desperately in need of a victory to virtually guarantee another season of Premier League football with three hard assignments against top-six sides to end their campaign, Huddersfield set about controlling the match in the first half but the contest was largely uneventful for the first half hour.

Allardyce was talking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Saturday game and confirmed that all three would have late fitness tests.

Town have picked up points in four of their last seven matches and have lost just once at home in the Premier League since late January.

Huddersfield fretting after 2-0 home defeat by Everton

A dramatic late victor against Watford last weekend saw them climb five points clear of the drop, but they haven't won this fixture since March 1956.

Huddersfield take on Everton at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday as Wagner's side battle for survival. We have turned the corner away from home.

Seamus Coleman missed a golden chance to double Everton's lead when he got in behind the Huddersfield defence at a free-kick and had two passing options as well as the whole goal to aim at but his first touch was poor, knocking the ball straight into the grateful arms of Lossl.

The only new player added to the injury list is Ince, who is dealing with a hamstring injury.

He's not the only doubt either, with Leighton Baines and Dominic Calvert-Lewin also racing against time to make it. James McCarthy (broken leg) and Eliaquim Mangala (knee) are long-term absentees for the Blues.
