Man City vs Huddersfield: Top free betting tips
Can Huddersfield produce the shock of all shocks on Sunday when they face Man City at the Etihad Stadium? Our Man City vs Huddersfield prediction is for the home side to flex their muscles and put on a show in front of their supporters with key players expected to return to the lineup.
Man City and Huddersfield have faced each other six times over the past seven years and they haven't lost any of them. The Terriers have managed two draws, though, and they would give anything for such a result here to take the English champions back to the John Smith's Stadium for a replay.
Match handicap prediction: Man City -2
Christmas has been and gone, Man City have become world champions and despite playing pretty poorly by their standards all season they are well in touch with the top of the Premier League. We all know what that means – the Blues are about to go on an incredible winning run. They beat Sheffield United 2-0 last time out but with Haaland, De Bruyne and Doku all returning this weekend, expect a battering.
Both teams to score prediction: No
Huddersfield haven't been prolific by any stretch of the imagination this season and only four teams have scored fewer goals than them in the Championship. The game may even seem so far out of their reach that manager, Darren Moore, could elect to rest his first-team players which makes their chances of scoring even slimmer.
Correct score prediction: Man City 4-0 Huddersfield
The last two Man City vs Huddersfield matches have finished 9-1 on aggregate to the Blues and that was when Huddersfield were a Premier League outfit. City fans will be expecting an emphatic display given the players who are back available and we think their expectations will be met.
How far will Huddersfield fans travel to the Etihad Stadium?

By train, Huddersfield supporters can take a direct train from Huddersfield to Manchester Piccadilly before using the Manchester Metrolink to get to the Etihad Stadium.
