Wagner makes one enforced change to starting XI

- Huddersfield Town side named to face AFC Bournemouth
- Laurent Depoitre replaces suspended Steve Mounié
- Abdelhamid Sabiri steps into match day squad

Head Coach David Wagner has made one change to Huddersfield Town’s starting line-up for tonight’s Premier League game against AFC Bournemouth; 7.45pm kick-off at Vitality Stadium.

With striker Steve Mounié serving the first game of a three-match suspension, Wagner brings fellow forward Laurent Depoitre into the team for his first start since the game at Watford on 27 October.

The team is otherwise unchanged from the side that faced Brighton at the weekend, meaning goalkeeper Jonas Lössl makes his 50th Premier League start for the Terriers.

With Mounié dropping out of the squad, 22-year-old midfielder Abdelhamid Sabiri is named on the substitutes’ bench.

Along with the suspended Mounié, Wagner is without the services of Chris Löwe (shoulder) this evening.
