Huddersfield Town got the point need to ensure Premier League safety in a dramatic 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The hectic encounter saw the Terriers survive a pair of nearly chances in the first half. Antonio Rudiger fired over from inside the six yard box and later Alvaro Morata rounded Jonas Lossl, but couldn't convert from a tight angle. However, four minutes after the restart, Huddersfield took the lead against the run of play. Depoitre won the race to a ball over the top, touched past Willy Caballero and poked into the back of an empty net. Chelsea drew level in the 62nd minute when Mathias Jorgensen's clearance smashed Marcos Alonso in the face and deflected in. Goalkeeper Jonas Lossl produced a world-class save to push Andreas Christensen's header against the post as Chelsea pushed for a winner, but the Terriers held on to ensure a second successive season in the top flight.

Huddersfield Town put in an all-around superb performance to earn a shock point off Manchester City in 0-0 draw at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The draw represents a massive step closer to Premier League survival for Huddersfield. David Wagner's decision to name a defensive-minded started XI was at the center of the result, as the Terriers became the first club to stop Manchester City from scoring at home in the league this season. Alex Pritchard went close in the first half with a strike from distance to test Ederson at full stretch, before Florent Hadergjonaj was denied one-on-one after a creative training ground set-piece routine. City commanded possession and the flow of the match after the restart, but the visitors held firm to move three points clear of the drop zone with two matches remaining. All things considered, it was an excellent result for the Terriers.

Tom Ince will need to pass a late fitness test ahead of Huddersfield Town's trip to Manchester City this weekend.

Ince had hoped to be in contention for Sunday's match at the Etihad after missing the 2-0 defeat by Everton because of a hamstring injury. While Ince's injury isn't believed to be serve, manager David Wagner said he doesn't know if the winger will be ready to return this weekend: "We are uncertain about Tom Ince; he will make a test tomorrow but should be OK for the Chelsea game." Collin Quaner is expected to retain his place on the right wing until Ince is fit to start.

Tom Ince is "hoping" to be back in contention for Huddersfield Town's trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

The 26-year-old winger came off the bench and scored a injury-time winner against Watford in his last appearance, but picked up a hamstring injury which kept him out of Huddersfield's match against Everton. However, Ince said he is aiming to return to David Wagner's side for the match against Manchester City at the Etihad this weekend. When asked if he would be fit to face the Citizens, Ince said: "I hope so. Over the last few days I've been working hard with the medical staff and the fitness staff to make sure that come the next games I'm ready and I can give 100 per cent because there's still long way to go." Ince has been in and out of the starting XI in recent weeks, but his availability would be a welcomed boost with Town just three points above the relegation zone with three difficult fixtures remaining. If Ince is fit to start, he could come in for Collin Quaner on the right wing.

Huddersfield Town missed a chance to distance themselves from the relegation zone in a 2-0 defeat by Everton at The John Smith's Stadium.

The Terriers got off to a fast start and dominated the early proceedings, but lacked the clinical touch required in the final third. After being on the front foot for the majority of the first half, it was Everton who took the lead on 39 minutes after Van La Parra conceded possession cheaply in midfield. Theo Walcott snapped up the ball and feed Cenk Tosun, who set himself and swept the ball past Jonas Lonas at full stretch. Town's wastefulness continued in the second-half, with Alex Pritchard missing their best chance from inside the six yard box. Laurent Depoitre was brought on late, but Everton wrapped the match with a goal in the 77th minute. The defeat cuts Huddersfield's advantage over the bottom three to just three points with three matches left to play.

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner confirmed that Tom Ince will miss Saturday's match against Everton at the John Smith's Stadium.

Ince, who scored the late match-winner against Watford, has picked up a hamstring problem and won't be available for selection this weekend. The 26-year-old came off the bench in the 1-0 win over Watford meaning that Collin Quaner is in line for another start on the right wing. On the Ince injury, Wagner explained: "We’re missing the three long-term injuries (Michael Hefele, Elias Kachunga and Danny Williams) plus Tom Ince, he has some hamstring problems. With him we speak more about days than weeks."

Tom Ince hasn't produced much this season but he came up big in Week 34 as Huddersfield Town beat Watford 1-0.

Ince, who was potent in the Terriers' promotion campaign, has been a disappointment in the Premier League. His late goal may not erase a disappointing season but it may hand Huddersfield Town, now up to 14th with four matches remaining, a second season in the top flight.

Jonathan Hogg is in contention to face Watford at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday after the midfielder picked up a nasty knock at Brighton last weekend.

The 29-year-old limped off during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Brighton after being on the receiving end of a studs first tackle that earned Seagull's midfielder Davy Propper a straight red card. However, Hogg returned to training earlier this week and declared himself fit ahead of the match against his form club Watford. "It was a bit of knock, it didn't feel great at the time but I've recovered quite quickly and I'm glad I'm back on the pitch with the lads because I need to be with them on Saturday," Hogg said. "I'm perfect and ready to go, I can't wait for it." The news means Hogg should start in his regular holding midfield role alongside Aaron Mooy.
Apr 13 - 4:06 PM

David Wagner is hoping the ankle injury sustained by Jonathan Hogg is not as serious as the one suffered by Elias Kachunga, at Newcastle, seven days ago.

The Huddersfield Town boss confirmed earlier this week that Kachunga had been scheduled for surgery following a horrible Kenedy challenge which left the Terriers attacker with significant damage to the ligaments in his right ankle. And speaking after a hard-fought draw on the south coast, Wagner was clearly unhappy with Brighton midfielder Davy Propper who was shown a straight red for the challenge: "Usually I don't like to say or give any comments but last week we lost Kachunga for three months after a harsh tackle and this was another one," he mused. "I accept aggression and to fight for each ball, but this is too dangerous." When asked for an update on the injury, Wagner said: "We have to make a first assessment. We hope it's not as serious as the tackle looked, to be perfectly honest."
Apr 8 - 10:40 AM

A win for Brighton or Huddersfield could have done their Premier League survival chances the world of good, but neither side could capitalise on the opportunity in a 0-0.

Brighton took the lead initially thanks to an own-goal by Huddersfield 'keeper Jonas Lossl. He turned a shot from March onto the post but it bounced back and ricocheted into the net off his head. Huddersfield managed to end a near 7 hour goal drought to respond quickly to Albion's goal, as Steve Mounie finished well after taking on a poor back pass from Shane Duffy. The Terriers will be the more disappointed side going home tonight as they failed to score in the last 15 minutes against 10 men. Davy Propper saw red after a late tackle on Hogg. Neither side are safe yet, and will need to do better in front of goal to reach the 40 points mark.

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner will need to assess his attacking option for Saturday's trip to Brighton following the news that Elias Kachunga will miss the rest of the season.

Huddersfield slide to 16th in the table after a 1-0 defeat by relegation rivals Newcastle on Saturday and sit just three-points above the drop zone with six matches remaining. Town travel to Brighton on Saturday in dire need of a victory, but Wagner will be forced into at least one change with Elias Kachunga ruled out due to an ankle injury suffered at St. Jame's Park. In terms of a straight swap, Collin Quaner and Tom Ince are both capable of playing on the right wing. Wagner could also be tempted to form a partnership with Steve Mounie and Laurent Depoitre up front, considering Town have failed to score in their last four matches.
Apr 2 - 5:03 PM

Elias Kachunga will miss the remainder of the season after suffering an ankle injury during Saturday's match against Newcastle United.

The 25-year-old Democratic Republic of Congo international made his first start since recovering from a long-term knee injury at St. Jame's Park, but was forced off after 56 minutes following a heavy sliding challenge from Newcastle winger Kenedy. A scan on Monday revealed that Kachunga had suffered significant damage to the ligaments of his right ankle, which will rule him out for the final six matches of the campaign. On the injury, manager David Wagner said: "Everyone is absolutely gutted for ‘Kache’, because we have all seen how hard he worked to get back to fitness after the knee injury he picked up late last year. For this to happen to him so soon again is cruel."
Apr 2 - 3:48 PM

Huddersfield Town missed an opportunity to put some distance between them and the bottom three in a 1-0 loss to Newcastle.

The Terriers couldn't even manage a single shot on target against a stalwart Newcastle defense, and things got worse when the Magpies finally broke the deadlock with an 80th-minute goal from Ayoze Perez that proved to be the match winner. The loss extends Huddersfield's winless streak to four matches, but David Wagner's side was fortunate not to remain three points above the relegation zone. Winger Elias Kachunga made his first start for the side since December, only to leave the match in the 53rd minute due to an ankle injury.

Terrence Kongolo is expected to be fit for Saturday's match against Newcastle at St. James' Park after recovering from a hip injury.

Kongolo missed the last two Premier League matches but could feature this weekend after returning to training during the international break. The on-loan Monaco defender had edged out Scott Malone and Chris Lowe for the starting left-back role prior to suffering the injury, meaning he could get the nod against Newcastle. As a fantasy asset, Kongolo has averaged 3.6 interceptions and 2.5 tackles per match across his last four starts. He's someone to consider in formats that reward peripheral defensive stats.
Mar 29 - 2:51 PM

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner revealed that Aaron Mooy and Philip Billing are in contention for the trip to Newcastle on Saturday.

Mooy was initially in doubt for the weekend after a minor injury forced him to miss Australia's friendly against Colombia, while Biling also returned early from international duty with Denmark U21's. However, David Wagner confirmed that the pair are expected to resume full training on Friday meaning they could be fit for the clash with Newcastle. "Aaron Mooy and Phil Billing are back on the grass with the fitness coaches and will be back with the group tomorrow," said Wagner. "They are both in contention for Saturday." If Mooy is able to start, he will be expected to partner Jonathan Hogg in central midfield. Should he miss out, then Billing or Dean Whitehead could make the starting XI.
