A Fantasy Football look at Town’s Boxing Day match against Stoke City

- Fantasy Football tips for Town’s Boxing Day match
- Laurent Depoitre being snapped up by FPL managers
- Christopher Schindler tipped as a good pick

Huddersfield Town's Boxing Day encounter with Stoke City can offer Fantasy Premier League points aplenty.

The Potters arrive at the John Smith's Stadium buoyed by a 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion, but with a defence that has conceded 40 goals this season - more than any other side.

That should encourage further interest in Laurent Depoitre (£5.3m), who took his tally to three goals in as many matches with a headed equaliser at Southampton.

Once again FPL managers are snapping up the Belgian - only Roberto Firmino (£8.8m) of Liverpool has earned more transfers among forwards ahead of Gameweek 20.

Our defence could also be worth backing, with Christopher Schindler (£4.6m) in menacing form.

He's matched Depoitre for shots in the penalty area (three) over our last two matches and a first goal of the season looks imminent. Schindler has been in defence for five of our six clean sheets, picking up bonus points on three of those occasions.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (£5.4m) could be the biggest threat to a Terriers shut-out.

The Cameroon international supplied his FPL owners with a goal and an assist in the win over the Baggies.

The midfielder has been used as a striker by manager Mark Hughes and has fired 41 shots this season, more than any other team-mate.
