Huddersfield Town entertain Swansea City at the John Smith's Stadium in what promises to be a mouthwatering Premier League encounter.

Carlos Carvalhal brings his side to West Yorkshire having collected 17 points from the nine games while the Portuguese boss has been in charge at the Liberty Stadium.

With both sides level on points but the Swans ahead courtesy of a superior goal difference, it promises to be a tight encounter this afternoon.

David Wagner's side welcome back Aaron Mooy to the first-team squad after recovering from a cut to the knee against AFC Bournemouth last month.

However, Michael Hefele is out for up to eight weeks after having surgery, while Terence Kongolo is likely to miss the next two games with a hip problem.

Meanwhile, Leon Britton has a slight back issue with Renato Sanches also out with a hamstring problem.

Bringing you all the pre-match news and extensive match comment and analysis is Blake Welton with expert analysis and opinion from Rory Benson.

Booking

90+2 Minutes: Swansea try to counter again but this time Quaner is booked for pulling back Sam Clucas.

Post!

90+1 Minute: Ince glances a Hadergjonaj cross against the inside of the post!! Swansea counter and win a free-kick near the corner flag but it’s well claimed by Jonas Lossl.

Added Time

A minimum of four minutes to be added at the end of this game - late drama??

Substitution

89 Minutes: Ki Sung-yueng is replaced by Tom Carroll - this isn’t going to happen today is it?!!??

Great Defending!

86 Minutes: Mounie meets another long ball into the area but van der Hoorn does enough to stop his header finding the target - both van der Hoorn and Fernandez have been immense for the Swans today.

More Pressure...

79 Minutes: A Hadergjonaj corner is cleared only as far as Ince who keeps the ball alive and finds Mounie with a chipped cross but the forward can’t keep his header down.

Substitution

78 Minutes: Rajiv van La Parra is replaced by Laurent Depoitre.

Relentless...

77 Minutes: Malone’s teasing low ball across the face of goal misses everyone...This pressure is relentless!

More Last Ditch...

74 Minutes: Ince is denied in the area by more last ditch defending after he was slipped through by Quaner.

Substitution

73 Minutes: Andre Ayew is replaced by Tammy Abraham - still 0-0 here at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Yellow Card

70 Minutes: Hadergjonaj receives a yellow card for a foul on Ki - the momentum of his challenge unfortunately took him into the South Korean.

Substitutions

67 Minutes: Collin Quaner has come on for Alex Pritchard while Aaron Mooy is replaced by Danny Williams. Tom Ince is now playing in the ‘Number 10’ role.

Great Effort!!

64 Minutes: Mooy cuts a corner back to Hadergjonaj on the edge of the box but the Swiss full-back’s effort is inches wide.

Yellow Card

63 Minutes: Andre Ayew is booked for a foul on Rajiv van La Parra on the edge of the area - there were appeals for a penalty but the referee made the right call.

Crossbar!

62 Minutes: Great save from Swansea keeper Fabianski, somehow tipping a fierce Mounie volley onto the top of the bar!

Side Netting!!

61 Minutes: Mounie rattles an effort into the side-netting after meeting Hadergjonaj’s cut back 12 yard out - surely Swansea can’t keep this defensive wall up!??

Great Covering!

60 Minutes: Swansea City’s Ki curls a free-kick into the area; it hits the legs of Mike van der Hoorn with Jonathan Hogg coming across well to clear.

Need More...

Despite all the possession, there is little penetration from Town with Steve Mounie often marshalled by five red shirts.

Surely it’s time for Laurent Depoitre to come and stretch that Swansea backline?

Fan View...

Sitter!

52 Minutes: Hadergjonaj’s teasing ball into the box flies past Mounie and under the foot of Scott Malone - the full-back should have at least made a connection with it - let off.

Screamer!!!

51 Minutes: Hogg receives the ball from 25 yards out and unleashes a screamer which goes inches wide.

Yellow Card

50 Minutes: Martin Olsson is booked for dissent as Swansea City already appear to be trying to timewaste.

Fan View...

Teams Are Out...

And there appears to be no changes to either side in this half - big 45 minutes coming up here at the John Smith’s Stadium.

HT: Huddersfield Town 0 Swansea City 0

The referee blows for the interval - it’s been all Huddersfield Town so far, especially after the 11th minute dismissal of Swansea City’s Jordan Ayew for a terrible challenge of Jonathan Hogg. An interesting second-half awaits!
