Huddersfield Town play host to Tottenham Hotspur today in one of the most eagerly anticipated Premier League clashes for the Terriers.

Tottenham are the first of last season's top six to visit the John Smith's Stadium, with Town going on to face Manchester United and Liverpool in their next three outings.

Spurs will be without Moussa Dembele, Erik Lamela, Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama who are all injured for today' clash, while Serge Aurier is suspended - having received a red card against West Ham United last time out.

The Terriers on the other hand will be without top scorer Steve Mounie - who is still sidelined with a heel injury - as well as Danny Williams, Collin Quaner, Jon Gorenc Stankovic and Kasey Palmer.

Stick with us throughout the day for all the build up, live match action and post-game reaction from the John Smith's Stadium.
