Huddersfield vs Manchester City
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 20 January 2019
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium (Huddersfield).
Two sides from opposite sides of the league ladder are set to take on each other in what should be an entirely one-sided affair at The John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester City are enormous favourites and we would be shocked to see anything other than a comprehensive victory for them on Matchday No 23.
The Citizens returned to the title contest by beating leaders Liverpool 2-1 at home at the start of the year. They made it three wins on the spin in the Premier League to narrow the gap behind the Reds down to four points.
Pep Guardiola’s men obviously can’t afford too many slip-ups in the remaining part of the season and we expect them to be highly motivated to finish the job as soon as possible this weekend away in West Yorkshire.
Huddersfield vs Manchester City: Head-to-head
The gap in quality between these two likes was notable when they met each other in the first half of the season.
Man City claimed a demolishing 6-1 victory at Etihad on the occasion.
The Citizens won three and drew one pf past four head o head outings with the Terriers.
Huddersfield vs Manchester City: Prediction
The visitors are flying high offensively at the start of the year. They scored as many as 19 goals in three consecutive wins over Rotherham United (7-0 in the FA Cup), Burton Albion (9-0 in the League Cup) and Wolverhampton Wanderers (3-0 in the Premier League).
They are up against the weakest team in the top flight of the English football on Sunday. Huddersfield Town are on a dreadful run of nine defeats and a draw in past ten outings in al competitions. They scored only one goal in past four games even though the opposition included the likes of Fulham, Burnley, Bristol City and Cardiff City in the process.
Pep Guardiola’s men should really celebrate an easy clean sheet victory by at least three goals difference here.
