Despite playing badly in the Premier League, Burnley is clearly still superior to a Championship team like Huddersfield. In addition to being able to play at the Turf Moor nest, there are many opportunities for Burnley to win tickets to the round of 16 of the FA Cup.
The only goal of striker Maxwel Cornet could not help Burnley avoid a 1-3 defeat as a guest at Leeds. So Burnley has just had a disappointing start to the new year, this result makes their situation very bad in the English Premier League. After 17 rounds, the Turf Moor team only won 1, drew 8 and lost 8. Currently with 11 points, Burnley is stuck in the group holding the red light with 18th position on the table.
They are only 2 points behind the safe area and have less than 1 game left, but there are few signs that Burnley will return soon. In the last 7 consecutive appearances, Burnley does not know the taste of victory (draw 4, lose 3). This team played very badly in the attack stage and only scored 2 goals in the last 5 appearances, they even failed in 3/5 matches mentioned above. In the Premier League, after 17 matches Burnley only scored 16 goals and this achievement is better than each of the bottom teams, which is Norwich. At home, Burnley only won 1/5 of the recent reception. It’s so bad, but Burnley is still superior to Huddersfield in terms of level anyway.
Huddersfield has just opened the new year with a 0-0 draw at Blackburn’s field. Although there is only 1 point, but before the opponent who is ranked 2nd in the table, this is not a bad result for the away team. This is the period when Huddersfield plays extremely stable in the Championship. In the last 6 rounds, this team has not once tasted defeat (draw 3, win 3). Currently, Huddersfield has climbed to 6th place in the table, in which they have won 40 points through 26 matches.
If it continues to maintain its current form, the prospect of being promoted to the Premier League is extremely bright for Huddersfield. Away from home, Huddersfield is also unbeaten in all 4 recent trips away from home (draw 2, win 2). Playing well is that, but Huddersfield still cannot stand on par with Burnley at the moment. In fact, in the last 7 first times, Huddersfield could not win against Burnley (draw 3, lose 4). With weaker strength and still having to be a guest, don’t be too surprised if Burnley stops early in the FA Cup playground.
