Three changes to Huddersfield Town’s line-up

- Three changes to Huddersfield Town XI to face Manchester United
- Elias Kachunga, Erik Durm and Laurent Depoitre come into line-up
- Juninho Bacuna, Chris Löwe & Steve Mounié all substitutes

Head Coach David Wagner has made three changes to Town’s starting line-up for today’s Premier League game against Manchester United; 3pm kick-off at Old Trafford.

In what is Wagner’s 150th competitive game in charge of the Terriers, he has brought Elias Kachunga back into the line-up for his first start since the away game at Leicester City on 22 September.

Another player returning to the team is Laurent Depoitre; the Belgian makes his 50th Premier League appearance for the Club in the process.

The final change sees Erik Durm make his first start since the game at AFC Bournemouth in early December.

Juninho Bacuna, Chris Löwe & Steve Mounié make way and are among the substitutes today, where they are joined by fit-again Jonathan Hogg. He missed the weekend’s game against Southampton with a knee problem but is back in the match day squad today.

Christopher Schindler, who captains the side again today, is making his 100th league appearance for Town, whilst Isaac Mbenza starts successive games for the first time.

Wagner is without the services of the injured Tommy Smith (hamstring), Aaron Mooy (knee), Danny Williams (knee) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (collarbone) again today.
