The Terriers host the Clarets at The John Smith’s Stadium to raise the curtain for the term on July 29. It is the opening meeting for the new campaign, as Danny Schofield and Vincent Kompany endeavour to guide their respective sides to promotion into the Premier League.

Anjorin had helped Carlos Corberan take Huddersfield to the play-off final last season after joining on loan from Chelsea in January. But the 20-year-old could not prevent the Terriers from a 1-0 defeat, as Nottingham Forest gained the final seat at the top-flight table in May.

Huddersfield sign Tino Anjorin on 22/23 season-long loan from Chelsea

Anjorin has now returned to Huddersfield on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea for the 2022/23 campaign. The midfielder has already integrated himself in Schofield’s side as the West Yorkshire natives prepare to face Burnley, and will take the No.8 jersey for the term.

Schofield has edged interest from Coventry City, Norwich City, Queens Park Rangers and a clutch of European teams for Anjorin’s services, per Adam Newson of The midfielder will now look to build on his 143 minutes while on loan at the Terriers last term.

Corberan never started the England U20 international on route to Wembley with all eight of Anjorin’s Huddersfield appearances to date coming off the bench. The Poole-born gem also offered one goal struck against Coventry to win 2-1 during his time in West Yorkshire.

Schofield could now afford Anjorin his first Huddersfield start after signing on loan for the upcoming season from Chelsea. So, with that in mind, what could the Terriers’ line-up look like when Burnley visit The John Smith’s Stadium to see in the new campaign on July 29?

Ollie Turton (RB): Terriers’ new No.2 after cementing first-choice status

Ollie Turton has taken over the No.2 jersey at Huddersfield after cementing himself as the Terriers’ first-choice right-back last term. Corberan signed the 29-year-old for free after he left Blackpool in July, and would start him in 25 of Turton’s 40 regular-season appearances.

Tom Lees (CB): Corberan’s general to marshal Schofield’s defence this season

Tom Lees was Corberan’s defensive general last term and will now marshal Schofield’s unit following Huddersfield’s change in leadership. The 31-year-old led the backline through 47 games across all competitions in 2021/22, whilst also offering five goals form centre-back.

Yuta Nakayama (CB): Huddersfield sign PEC Zwolle defender in free transfer

Huddersfield have signed Yuta Nakayama in a free transfer following the defender leaving PEC Zwolle at the end of his contract this June. The 25-year-old can be an option at centre- and left-back, but should hold a consistent central presence who is also good on the ball.

Josh Ruffels (LB): Terriers star to step up as Harry Toffolo joins Nottingham Forest

Schofield will hope Josh Ruffels steps up and claims left-back honours at Huddersfield after Harry Toffolo joined Nottingham Forest. The 2022 Championship play-off winners paid the Terriers £2.5m for the 26-year-old after he offered six goals and eight assists in 48 games.

Jonathan Hogg (CDM): Captain to keep standards up after play-off push

Jonathan Hogg will look to set the standards and strive to captain Huddersfield to another promotion push this term. The 33-year-old started all 31 of his regular-season games and all three play-off ties last term, whilst hitting home two goals and also laying on an assist.

Connor Mahoney (RM): Huddersfield sign forward after Millwall release

Tino Anjorin (CAM): Huddersfield sign Chelsea gem for full season on loan

Anjorin has returned to Huddersfield for a term after signing back on loan with the Terriers after spending pre-season with Chelsea. Schofield will hope to get the midfielder holding a larger presence in the John Smith’s Stadium attack this term than he held under Corberan.

Sorba Thomas (LM): Danny Schofield to rely on winger changing sides

Danny Ward (ST): Forward to lead Danny Schofield’s first Huddersfield side

Danny Ward will spearhead Schofield’s first Huddersfield side after firing Corberan’s squad to the play-off final last season. The 31-year-old scored 14 goals and laid on a further three assists over 40 regular-season Championship games, his best second-tier haul for the club.
