Premier league after 8 matches: Huddersfield Town already showing relegation form?

With only Leicester vs West Brom still to play in this season’s 8th round of Premier League matches, the alt-3 league table now lifts Stoke City along with Everton, since they both have faced relatively strong opposition in their first 8 matches. On the other hand Huddersfield Town, who are listed in 12th place in the usual league table (i.e., the ranking determined by accumulated points to date), are placed 17th in the alt-3 table. If Leicester can beat West Brom on Monday evening, Huddersfield will take their place in the relegation zone according to the alt-3 table.

The reason? Huddersfield’s fixture list to date has been Palace (away), Newcastle (home), Southampton (home), West Ham (away), Leicester (home), Burnley (away), Spurs (home) and Swansea (away). A quick look at their schedule-strength chart shows that Huddersfield face a much tougher run of matches in the coming weeks!
