Huddersfield vs Manchester City : Match Preview


Now it’s the time for Huddersfield to face their toughest Premier league test as they welcomes Manchester City on Sunday.

Pep’s boys extended their winning run to 17 games in all competition as they defeated 0-1 Feyenoord in Tuesday’s night Champions League.

Fernandinho, David Silva and Leroy Sane are likely to come back into the team as Guardiola managed to rest some key players in the Champions League game against Feyrnoord on Tuesday.

Newly-promoted Huddersfield are 10th in the table with four wins to their name. Last weekend they were thumped 4-0 by Bournemouth.
