Huddersfield Town have already defeated Manchester United at the John Smith’s Stadium, but they can do the same against a rampant Manchester City side on Sunday?
The Terriers suffered a 4-0 demolition at Bournemouth last weekend, but they have won their last two home games. David Wagner’s side are currently placed tenth on the table with 15 points from their opening 12 games.
The Terriers have struggled to find the net in the first quarter of their debut season in Premier League. With eight goals this season, they have the worst attack behind the bottom two sides in the league table.
The Citizens will come into this game on the back of a tremendously impressive run of results. They have dropped just two points in the league this season, and last weekend, they claimed a 2-0 win at Leicester City. Pep Guardiola’s side currently enjoy an eight-point lead at the top of the table and have firmly established themselves as the favourites for the league title.
The Citizens were involved in Champions League during midweek, and they claimed a 1-0 home win over Feyenoord.
Both sides haven’t played each other in a league game since the 1999-2000 Championship season. Last season, they played each other twice in FA Cup. The Terriers managed to grab a goalless draw at home, but they lost 5-0 in the replay at Etihad Stadium.
