John Smith’s Stadium
Manchester City head to West Yorkshire looking to repeat their cricket score victory over a rock bottom Huddersfield Town side who haven’t won in the league since November.
The highest scorers in the Premier League take on the side with the fewest goals in the division so far this season, in a contest that will struggle to be just that.
There are few prizes for backing the away win in this one as the question is really by how many goals will City win, rather than the usual who will win.
When the sides met earlier in the season at the Etihad, City put six past the Terriers although hapless Huddersfield did at least manage to get on the scoresheet in a 6-1 romp.
However, that only occurred after the home side were 3-0 up and had already taken their foot off the gas.
Remarkably, Huddersfield has only won once at home all season and there is little to no chance of David Wagner’s men making it two.
The Terriers are on a 10-game winless run in all competitions whilst City has only conceded seven on the road all season.
Expect a City clean sheet in what proves to be the most comfortable 3-0 away win they will have all season.
Man City to win to nil is 4/6
It is harder to get better value than that with the best betting sites as the away side are such hot favourites.
Huddersfield has scored just five times at home in the Premier League all season making another City shutout inevitable.
Over 1.5 first half goals in 11/10
Eight of Manchester City’s last 10 goals on the road in the Premier League have come in the first half making this a great bet.

Head To Head
As mentioned above, City have already enjoyed a thumping 6-1 over the Terriers this season although that was at the Etihad.
Huddersfield did however surprise many when they claimed a 0-0 draw at the end of last season even though City had already wrapped up the title.
Despite the current gulf in class between the two, it was not always that way, the Terriers won four straight games against the Citizens in the late 1940’s and Huddersfield have beaten City a total of 22 times in their competitive history.
Manchester City have claimed just five more with 27 and a total of 30 draws has been shared between the two since they first met in a 1920 Division One game.
- Manchester City have netted eight times in three Premier League games against the Terriers.
- Manchester City has already lost more games on the road this season (2) than in the entirety of the 2017/18 campaign (1).
- The Terriers have not beaten City this millennium recording three defeats and three draws in the sides last six meetings.
- Huddersfield has only managed five goals at home all season, the fewest in the Premier League.
- Manchester City won the first ever meeting between the pair, 1-0 in a 1920 Division One clash.
