Betting Tip: @ Huddersfield +2 @ 97/100 with bet365

Now we’re not saying Huddersfield Town will beat Manchester City but there are reasons to suggest the Terriers won’t be blown away by the runaway Premier League leaders.

City have been scoring a lot of goals in the Premier League this season although it’s only the match against Watford where they cast off the shackles and scored for fun, winning the game 6-0.

The other winning scorelines have been 2-0, 2-1, 1-0, 3-2 and 2-0. Effectively winning football matches rather than steamrollering the opposition.

This match comes after a Champions League date with Feyenoord and City have another game on Wednesday, so Pep Guardiola is likely to keep shuffling the pack and Huddersfield will be pumped up for the game.

The Terriers have fifteen points from their opening twelve games. A very respectable total and they managed to beat Manchester United a few weeks ago.

That was achieved by scoring a couple of early goals and then defending stoutly, with David Wagner welcoming back Christopher Schindler for this clash and Town are fairly robust in defence.

Aside from a 4-0 mauling at the hands of Tottenham, they have conceded just two goals in their five home matches and it should be noted that they enjoyed a goalless draw against the same opponents in the FA Cup last term.

That was with an inferior team who were playing in the Championship and Wagner will feel as though this is a bonus match where Huddersfield can make things competitive more than the odds suggest.
