Huddersfield Town vs Manchester United 10/21/2017 Premier League Preview, Odds & Pick

United give Marcus Rashford, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones injury updates

Manager Mourinho looked strictly business after United beat his former side Benfica 1-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.

Remarkably, the two sides have not met since. Indeed, not since March 1952 have Huddersfield beaten United.

Half an hour after Rooney the United players started rolling in to put together their usual preparations and relax before their Premier League clash against Huddersfield.

United on the other hand are one of Europe's most in form sides.

This will be the first meeting between these sides since the 1971/72 top-flight season, with Manchester United winning both games that season. Should that occur, the Red Devils would set a new club record of 23 points from nine Premier League matches.

Romelu Lukaku has scored 11 goals in his first 12 appearances for Manchester United, but has drawn a blank in the club's last two games as the team struggled against Liverpool and Benfica since the global break.

United midfielders Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba all remain out through injury, as does Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo.

Huddersfield have been given a boost with the news that Steve Mounie is fit again following his spell on the sidelines while Danny Williams is also due back.

"Phil Billing has a serious injury". Mkhitarian and Mata will pull the strings in midfield and United have been rock solid at the back with Smalling, Blind, Jones and Valencia doing a great job infront of probably the best goalkeeper in the world right now David De Gea. It was not the toughest of assignments, but it has given Mourinho limited time to prepare his team for the trip to the John Smith's Stadium.

While Huddersfield have had a free week to prepare for this match, United were in Champions League action away to Benfica on Wednesday night.
