The two sides met twice in the league last season, which resulted in a 2-0 victory for Everton both times and after Huddersfield lack of early-league success the Toffees will be confident of a win.

Everton have already had a good start to the season, earning five points from three games and they are currently unbeaten.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield haven’t had quite the same success, losing their first two games and earning one point in their 0-0 draw with Cardiff last week.
However, Everton manager Silva still believes Huddersfield will be stern competition for the Toffees.
“A tough game for sure, it’s the Premier League and one more tough game for us,” Silva said at his pre-match press conference.
“The results they’ve had in the past are not important, even because they’ve played against two big teams as well.
“It’ll be tough, for sure and we have to play at our best to take a good result and win the match.”
