Team news and rosters

PositionHuddersfield roster
Goalkeepers Nicholls, Schofield
Defenders Turton, Pearson, Boyle, Ruffels, Rowe, Edmonds-Green, Lees, Nakayama
Midfielders Russell, Hogg, Thomas, Anjorin, Mahoney, High, Kasumu, Holmes, Rudoni, Aarons
Forwards Rhodes, Koroma, Ward

It was a case of so close and yet so far for Huddersfield who last term, who came within a whisker of a return to the Premier League, only to suffer Championship playoff final heartbreak against Nottingham Forest at Wembley.

Carlos Corberan has exited the club too, with a new manager installed now in the shape of Danny Schofield - and questions abound as much as they do for their visitors over what this new era might look like for the Terriers.

Predicted Huddersfield starting XI: Nicholls; Turton, Edmonds-Green, Lees, Ruffels; Hogg, Russell; Thomas, Holmes, Koroma; Ward.

PositionBurnley roster
Goalkeepers Peacock-Farrell, Norris, Muric
Defenders Lowton, Taylor, Roberts, Long, McNally, Egan-Riley, Harwood-Bellis, Maatsen
Midfielders Cork, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Cornet, Bastien, Cullen

Forwards

Barnes, Rodriguez, Twine

Sacking Sean Dyche wasn't enough in the end - and despite starting the final day of the Premier League season outside the bottom three, it was Burnley who found themselves condemned to the drop after Leeds completed a great escape.

Former Manchester City favourite Vincent Kompany has been installed as the new permanent boss at Turf Moor, but it is tough to say whether he will have the pedigree to mount a return based on his Anderlecht record - as well as the fact his squad has been pillaged for its best players by ex-rivals above them.

Predicted Burnley starting XI: Muric; Roberts, Egan-Riley, Harwood-Bellis, Taylor; Cork, Cullen; Brownhill, Bastien; Barnes, Rodriguez.
