Newcastle United opened the 2017/18 Premier League season with a 2-0 home reverse against Spurs although they weren’t a million miles away from a team capable of challenging for the title this season.

Jonjo Shelvey’s red card was the turning point of the game and Rafael Benitez will be confident that his team can go to the John Smith’s Stadium and come back with at least a point.

After all, Newcastle were a better team than Huddersfield in the Championship last season, with Benitez’s team thirteen points ahead of the Terriers and that included a 3-1 win in this fixture last season.

Dwight Gayle scored 23 times for the Tyneside club and we think this could be a fixture where the striker opens his account for the season, with Huddersfield not renowned for keeping clean sheets despite their victory at Selhurst Park.

David Wagner’s side shipped 26 goals at home last season that was as many as relegated Wigan. It is Town’s first Premier League in front of their own fans and you tell me that Huddersfield will play in a cagey fashion!

Benitez will be tactically astute and be aware that his side might need to tame an early onslaught, although Christian Atsu and Matt Ritchie can exploit space from out wide and there’s that man Dwight Gayle ready to take his chances.

For an unpredictable clash, we’ll take Gayle to break the deadlock which may or may not result in a Newcastle victory.
