Huddersfield Town will return to the John Smith’s Stadium to host Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday 6 April 2019. Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester will make the trip to West Yorkshire, to face Jan Siewert’s Terriers, for a 3pm kick-off.
Town’s Head Coach will be hoping that his side can kick on from being officially relegated from the Premier League at the weekend, with a positive result against Leicester City.
The Foxes currently occupying 8th position in the Premier League table, after three successive wins.
The latest of those victories was a 2-0 win against AFC Bournemouth at the King Power Stadium, last Saturday.
It means that Rodgers (above) has now won three of his first four games in charge of the East Midlands’ outfit, with the only defeat coming in his opening game away to Watford.
The reverse fixture earlier this season saw Town on the receiving end of a 3-1 scoreline, despite Zanka’s early opener giving the Terriers the lead. Town’s last win at home against the Foxes came in 1995.

Key Players – FPL Preview
Jamie Vardy – 8.0
The Foxes’ top scorer has netted 13 of his total 75 Premier League goals in the 2018/19 campaign, with his latest coming in Leicester’s most recent win against AFC Bournemouth. Having brought up the 100-goal mark for Leicester in recent weeks, the striker is in-form and has benefited from the arrival of new manager Brendan Rodgers. Vardy has scored at a rate of a goal-a-game across Rodgers’ four match reign at the King Power.
Wes Morgan – 6.5
Another player that has starred for the Foxes under Rodgers is Club Captain Wes Morgan. The defender has featured in three of Rodgers’ first four games. Morgan has found the net in the Foxes’ last two outings and has been a key figure and leader at the back. He helped Leicester City keep its first clean sheet since New Year’s Day last weekend.
Youri Tielemans – 6.5
Tielemans joined the East Midlands club on loan in the January transfer window and has had an immediate impact in Leicester’s midfield. The 21-year-old has contributed to a goal in each of his last five appearances (one goal, four assists) for the Foxes and also started twice for Belgium in the recent international break, scoring in the 3-1 win against Russia.
