- Elias Kachunga and Rajiv van La Parra make way
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made two changes to the starting XI for today’s Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur; 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Former Spurs player Alex Pritchard returns to the side for his first start since the game at Manchester City on 19 August. The 25-year-old, who made two top-flight appearances for today’s opponents, replaces Rajiv van La Parra in the line-up.
The second change sees Jonathan Hogg return to the line-up for the first time following his suspension. ‘Hoggy’ skippers the side today, taking the place of Elias Kachunga.
There are a couple of additions to the bench today too, with Club Captain Tommy Smith and Jon Gorenc Stanković taking the place of Kachunga and Adama Diakhaby in the match day 18.
As David Wagner explained in his pre-match press conference, Danny Williams and Ramadan Sobhi are both unavailable with knee injuries today.
