Already set to drop down from Premier League, Huddersfield still struggling to stop their losing streak. They continue to lose their games, including their latest fixture, which saw them getting hammered 5-0 by Liverpool.
Not having much motivation in the remaining games making it tough for them to put on any positive display. However, Jan Siewert is hoping that his players can put on some kind of fight on Sunday.

United themselves haven’t been in a great form either, winning just one from their last five matches. Their last league game ended in a 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Old Trafford.
Fortunately for Solksjaer’s men the top four spot is still open, so they can keep on fighting. A win is essential for Man U if they are to finish in the Champions League zone.
Siewert will have some unavailable players for this weekend with Sabiri, Depoitre and Hamer all out injured. Meanwhile, Mooy’s condition remain doubtful, though there’s a chance that he can make the team.
The home team remain set to count on Grant, Mounie along with Mbenza up front. In midfield, the trio of Stankovic, Bacuna and Hogg will be picked to start.
Solksjaer side have some uncertainties for this weekend tie, though they only confirmed absent is Eric Bailly. There’s some names who are doubtful though for Sunday and could need late confirmation to participate.
Valencia, Lukaku, Jones, Smalling, Rashford and Lingard are those who are having some slight doubt with their condition. However, they most likely will still make the team.
Head to Head Records:
The last four meetings between both teams have mostly gone in favor of Man United with three wins and one defeat.
Huddersfield only victory happened at home back on October 21, 2017 in which they beat Man U 2-1.
Man United will be very motivated to take all three points knowing their top four hope remain alive and well. Facing a side that have nothing to play for, United must not let their guard off.
Huddersfield will try to battle for pride as they are playing in front of their home crowd. Solksjaer’s side should take all three points this weekend, without any excuses.
Final Score: 0-2
