Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner has said that it is still too early in the season to call his sides game against Swansea on Saturday a must win.

The Terriers are already being touted as a club who will battle to avoid relegation this season.

"[The Championship play-off final at] Wembley was a must-win game, but not Swansea".

But Swansea's struggles have continued this season and a last-gasp 1-0 defeat at West Ham before the global break dropped them into the relegation zone. It is a game where we feel we have a chance and this is a chance we will search for.

"But it made no difference to us, we knew what we had to do then and we know what we have to do now".

'Some good results and things will look a lot better and a lot healthier.

"It is much too early to say we are in a relegation battle".

"I think this is a team that will get better and better as the season goes on".

We had more changes than I envisaged in the summer", as top scorer Fernando Llorente left to join Tottenham Hotspur, "we have players who have not played so regularly in the previous year like Renato [Sanches] and Wilfried [Bony].

Clement went on to explain: "When you add in four or five others it will take time to integrate them. I expect them to show an improvement and I believe we will be better in the second half of the season than the first, but we need points now because we do not want to be in the same position as last season".
