Huddersfield Town returns to Premier League action this weekend to face Everton at the John Smith’s Stadium.

This will be the 61st meeting between the two sides, with Town not losing at home to the Toffees since 1953.

With just four games left of the Premier League season, the Terriers sit six points above the relegation zone with 35 points.

This weekend’s opponent, Everton, currently sits eighth in the Premier League with 45 points.

The Toffees come into the game off the back of a 1-0 win over Newcastle United and without a defeat in their last three games, drawing with Swansea City and Liverpool.

Since Sam Allardyce was appointed as Manager at the end of November, Everton has gone on to pick up 30 points from 21 games – the sixth highest points tally in the top-flight during that period.
