Huddersfield Town V Manchester City Preview And Predicted XI Plus Betting Odds

Manchester City will be confident of coming away with a win from the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s side head into the encounter against Huddersfield off the back of five consecutive wins in all competitions, having scored 24 goals.

The Terriers, meanwhile, are without a manager after David Wagner left his post earlier this week. They had lost eight consecutive league games before the 0-0 draw against Cardiff last Saturday.

City have very few injury worries heading into the game. Captain Vincent Kompany is a doubt with a muscular problem that he picked up against Liverpool.

Benjamin Mendy is expected to return to full training next week two months after having knee surgery. Claudio Bravo is still sidelined with an Achilles injury.

For Huddersfield, caretaker boss Mark Hudson will be without key playmaker Aaron Mooy. The former City midfielder is expected to be out until the end of the month with a medial knee ligament injury.

Abdelhamid Sabiri is still recovering from a broken collarbone while Danny Williams is a long term injury absentee with a knee problem.

City are hot favourites with the bookmakers to come out on top against the relegation-threatened Terriers. They are 2/13 to win at Unibet with a draw 8/1 at Betfair. A Huddersfield victory is 22/1 at the same bookie.

City’s Predicted XI To Face Huddersfield:

Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Danilo, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva, Mahrez, Aguero, Sane

Huddersfield’s Predicted XI:

Lossl, Hadergjonaj, Jorgensen, Schindler, Durm, Billing, Hogg, Kachunga, Puncheon, Pritchard, Mounie
