Granted, David Wagner's side have not had the easiest start to the season. In their opening seven games they have faced Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham, and got a credible draw at Everton, but two points gained overall is a worry.
Despite Burnley's upturn in form since their exit from the Europa League, Huddersfield will have marked this as a winnable game. They survived off grit and determination last term, and look to be suffering from second-season syndrome this time around.
They will look at Burnley as a shining example of where they would like to be in five years, though another top-half finish for Sean Dyche's side seems just as likely as a relegation scrap.
