Foxes are struggling to adjust to life without Riyad Mahrez

Claude Puel always seems to be one result away from a crisis and his under-pressure Leicester team may struggle to justify odds-on prices against Huddersfield, who may have been unfairly written off as relegation fodder.

Leicester see themselves as a top-eight club but those expectations may be a little high, given the difficulties of adjusting to life without Riyad Mahrez.

Huddersfield's ambitions are more modest but they competed well in a 1-1 draw against Everton and their 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace and can give Leicester a tough game.
