 Not the greatest season for the Terriers last time out, finishing in 19th place, but they will be looking forward to this season. They have brought in a few new faces most notably Liverpool keeper Danny Ward and forward Elias Kachunga from Ingolstadt. Head coach David Wagner will be hoping he can use his knowledge he learned from his time as Jurgen Klopp’s assistant, to guide the Terriers up the table, and push for a play-off spot. While they may have aspirations to get out of the league, it seems they aren’t moving forward, and they only they will get out of the league is going down rather than up, and this may be the season when it happens unless they can get off to a good start.
