Jan Siewert begins his reign as Huddersfield Town Head Coach with a game under the floodlights as Marco Silva’s Everton side visit the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday 29 January; 7:45pm kick-off.
The newly-appointed Head Coach will be hoping his side can clinch all three points in his first game in charge.
The visitors currently sit 11th in the Premier League table, just three points off seventh place. However, Everton’s last Premier League fixture was a 2-1 away defeat to Southampton.
The Toffees come into the game off the back of two wins from their last five games – securing their second away win of the season during that period, beating Burnley 5-1.
Silva took over as Manager of Everton in May 2018, with the former right-back having previously managed both Hull City and Watford in the Premier League.
The corresponding fixture saw the points shared in September 2018 as an equaliser from Dominic Calvert-Lewin cancelled out Philip Billing’s opener.
