At the “Selhurst Park” in London, Crystal Palace host Huddersfield for the first week of the English Premier League.
Crystal Palace did not end positive last season, despite they managed to remain in the first division. Their safety is the main target for this season too. Ronald De Boer is their new manager. In their friendly games, they won Maidstone (3-1) and West Brom (2-0), as they lost 0-2 against Liverpool and stayed in 1-1 with Metz and Schalke. For this game, Johan Cabaye and James McArthur are both doubts, as Bakary Sako and Connor Wickham are both injured.
On the other side, Huddersfield managed to take the promotion throw the play offs, last year, as they eliminate Sheffield Wednesday and Reading in penalty shoot out. This is their first time in history to play in the first division, since they changed their name. In their friendly games, they Accrington (1-0), Bury (3-1) and Barnsley (1-0), as they lost against Udinese (1-2) and Sandhausen (2-3). Also they stayed in 3-3 with Stuttgart and in 2-2 with Torino. Jon Stankovic, Martin Cranie, Jonathan Hogg and Nakhi Wells are all injured.
