Manchester City have already wrapped up the league title, but they are still eyeing a number of records in the league.
Hence, we don’t expect them to take their foot off the gas when they host Huddersfield Town at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
The Citizens sit atop the table with 93 points and are on course to become the first Premier League club to collect 100 points in a single season. They are also only a goal away from equalling Chelsea’s record of 103 goals in a single season.
The league champions are on a three-game winning run in the league, and last weekend, they claimed a comfortable 4-1 win at West Ham United.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield are mired in the relegation battle at the other end of the table. The Terriers sit in the 16th spot with 35 points, which them only a two-point buffer on the relegation zone. After the game against City, the Terriers have to play Chelsea and Arsenal, and it would be a herculean task for them to maintain their Premier League status.
The visitors have won only one of their last seven games, and we don’t see any hope for them against the champions. Last weekend, David Wagner’s men lost 2-0 to Everton at home.
Earlier this season, City claimed a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture at the John Smith’s Stadium.
