Swans v Huddersfield Sat 17 Oct 2020 3pm
Guehi, Ayew, Cabango and Roberts return from International duty to face Huddersfield and a ridiculously intense league schedule of matches up to Christmas, with another International break sandwiched in between for good measure.
The Terriers sit 19th in the table with a record of 1W 1D L2 F2 A5 and 4 points from the 4 games so far.
They have just lost their top scorer. West Brom made their ninth signing of the transfer window, bringing in Huddersfield forward Karlan Grant for £15m on a six year contract. Grant joined Huddersfield from Charlton in Jan 2019 and scored 4 goals from 13 matches in the PL for the remainder of their relegation season. Last season he was their top scorer with 19 goals from 44 matches in the Championship.
Huddersfield movements incoming this window:
Carel Eiting defensive midfielder from Ajax (loan)
Naby Sarr centre-back from Charlton (free)
Gonzalo Ávila Gordón (Pipa) right-back from Espanyol (£630k)
Joel Pereira goalkeeper from Man U (loan)

Danny Ward centre-forward from Cardiff (free)

FT 1-2 (Koroma 67’)
Have Swansea sold their promotion chances to satisfy our owners thirst for money. Defence weak without Rodon in the middle.
Lowly Huddersfield take the three points, Swansea couldn’t hit a barn door with their collection of bargain basement players, despite numerous chances.

15 shots, 7 on target, 12 corners and we still couldn’t score except for a penalty award, says it all really. Huddersfield had two corners and scored from one of them.
All those players brought in and there’s not a goal scorer amongst them.
