Huddersfield Town take on Rafa Benitez's Newcastle United today in a fixture which could have major consequences on the final Premier League table.

Both Newcastle and Town were promoted last year, both earning one victory away from home over the other.

But since Town's 3-1 defeat to the Magpies in March, the Terriers have gone from strength-to-strength while Newcastle have stagnated.

David Wagner has welcomed nine new players into his squad so far this transfer window, while Benitez has been given limited funds to add quality to the Toon's side.

Add to that the injuries to Paul Dummett and Florian Lejeune and Jonjo's Shelvey's suspension and Town face a rather depleted Newcastle squad today.

But with Benitez at the helm, the Magpies will be a tough opposition nonetheless and the Terriers will have to battle for the points in their first ever home match in the Premier League.
