Huddersfield vs Manchester City Match Preview
Huddersfield face the toughest task of their nascent Premier League career when they welcome an all-conquering Manchester City side. This Huddersfield vs Manchester City fixture will be played on Sunday, November 26 at the John Smith’s Stadium, so read the betting preview, betting tips and predictions for this match.
Huddersfield made a flying start to life in the Premier League with just one loss in the first six matches (W2, D3). But, then came the bumpy road and Huddersfield lost four of the next six (W2, L4) to slide down the table. They remain 10th with 15 points (W4, D3, L5) but only five points separate them from the relegation zone. With Arsenal and Chelsea set to follow Manchester City in the fixtures list for Huddersfield before Christmas, it could be a crucial month for their hopes of staying up. Stopping City would be a bit too much for the Terriers especially since they were demolished 4-0 away to Bournemouth last week.
Manchester City do not have any such problems and are probably the best team in the Premier League. They have dropped just two points so far, have the maximum points in the league (34), maximum wins (11), least losses (0), maximum goals scored (40) and the second-least goals conceded (7). With a healthy eight-point gap at the top, Pep Guardiola’s men look destined to clinch the Premier League this season, although stranger things have happened with bigger leads. But, a win in this Huddersfield vs Manchester City game would give them the highest point tally at this stage of the season in Premier League history. The Citizens have won all nine of their away games this season scoring 26 goals in the process.

Huddersfield vs Manchester City Predictions
City have scored at an average of almost three goals per game in nine away matches this season. Although a lot is told about City’s defensive problems, they have kept four clean sheets in their six away Premier League matches so far. We believe City’s firepower will see them score at least three goals. Don’t be surprised if they end up picking another clean sheet as well.
