Man City v Huddersfield Betting Preview
Venue: The Etihad
Manchester City host a struggling Huddersfield this weekend, as the away side look to try and ease their relegation fears.
The Terriers are 5/2 best price to be relegated and given they travel to the league champions this weekend and have Chelsea and Man United left to play, those odds will look particularly tempting.
City have dropped just four points at home all season in the league and even though they have already won the title, they will be looking to lift the trophy on the back of a big win in-front of their home crowd. They have won 15 of their 17 home games this campaign and have scored at least three in 12 of those games, including five goals on four occasions, four goals twice, three goals five times and seven once.
Pep Guardiola’s side are the league’s top goal-scorers with 102 and are on course to reach 100 points in the league with three games left to play. The odds on the game suggest everything you need to know for this fixture, with City at 1/12 and the away side out at a huge 33/1 best price, as big a starting price there has been all season.
Huddersfield know that they are going to have to defend well to stand any chance of winning this game but given their circumstances, they will be ready for the challenge. They sit just two points clear of Swansea City in 18th and given the difficulty of their games coming up, fans will be very worried.
A correct score of Huddersfield to win 1-0 is priced up at a staggering 90/1, which is less fancied than a City win of 7-0, which is best priced at 55/1. The odds are massively in favour of the home side and it would be the shock of the season if Huddersfield were to win, given they have lost 11 of their 17 away games this term and have picked up just three wins on their travels all campaign.
City remain without their main striker, Sergio Aguero, whilst defender John Stones could make a return to the City bench after a spell out with injury.
Huddersfield are without the likes of Tom Ince, Michael Hefele, Danny Williams and Elias Kachunga. Philip Billing could make a first appearance since February should he be selected to play.
Potential City Starting XI: Ederson; Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Silva, Jesus, Sane
Potential Huddersfield Starting XI: Lossl; Hadergjonaj, Zanka, Schindler, Kongolo; Quaner, Billing, Hogg, Mooy, Parra; Mounie
