In our Huddersfield v Manchester City betting preview we look at the most popular bets and tips along with team news, potential line-ups, stats and facts and more for the final of three games this Super Sunday.
Huddersfield enter the game of the back of a 4-0 demolition away to Bournemouth last weekend. The Cherries went down to ten men with the score 2-0, giving David Wagner’s men the potential to claw back the deficit and salvage a result. However, the absence of Schindler in the Terrier’s defence left a gap that saw them leak goals in the second half and struggle to impose themselves on the game. Wagner will be hoping all is forgotten going into this super Sunday flash, against a City side in the best form the club has seen to date, a true test of character for a Huddersfield side looking for a response.
It’s well documented that Manchester City are already this season’s favourite to lift the league title. A 2-0 away win at Leicester last time out could have ended differently had Vincent Kompany deservedly seen red for his early challenge on Jamie Vardy, but City pushes on and controlled the game to eventually run out 2-0 winners. Talk of an unbeaten season and replicating the Arsenal invincible has already begun, leaving the key question down to whether Guardiola’s side have the character to handle the pressure that’s being heaped on by the media.
Schindler and Hogg return. Billing, Hefele and Stankovic remain sidelined. Palmer is nearing full fitness.
Benjamin Mendy and John Stones remain City’s only absentees. Vincent Kompany is set to return to the fray following his rest in midweek.
Huddersfield Potential Starting XI: Lossl, Smith, Jorgensen, Schindler, Malone, Mooy, Whitehead, Kachunga, Ince, Van La Parra, Depoitre
Man City Potential Starting XI: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Delph, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, D Silva, Sane, Aguero, Sterling
