Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made two changes to the starting line-up for the Club’s first Premier League game of 2019 against Burnley; 7.45pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Elias Kachunga returns to the team for his second start of the season on home soil; his only previous one coming against Crystal Palace on 15 September.
Fellow winger Isaac Mbenza also comes into the starting XI this evening following some impressive recent performances.
Full backs Chris Löwe and Erik Durm make way, both taking places among the substitutes tonight.
Jonathan Hogg skippers the side again tonight; he played under Burnley manager Sean Dyche at Watford in the 2011/12 season.
Wagner is still without the services of the injured Tommy Smith (hamstring), Aaron Mooy (knee), Danny Williams (knee) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (collarbone).
