Huddersfield are 7/1 with Steve Mounie at 9/1 to score first.

Huddersfield face Tottenham at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday lunchtime, in a packed round of Premier league matches.

The Terriers come into this match on the back of second successive draw, this time a goalless draw at Turf Moor.

Huddersfield were second best in terms of possession, with Burnley enjoying 52% of the ball at home.

But it was the visitors who made the most of their possession, with nine total shots on the Burnley goal.

They also converted two of those shots on target, twice as many as their hosts Burnley.

For Huddersfield, it is a solid away performance but one that Wagner will feel they could have got much more from.
