In the second match of the Premier League, we’ll get to witness Manchester City v Huddersfield Town. Man City, the home team, is firm favourite to win the game and they should absolutely trash the visitors.
Our Predictions For This Game:
It is very clear here who is the favourite. Anything, except a comfortable win for Manchester City, will be considered a huge surprise. Manchester City is coming into this match fresh from an away win at Arsenal 2-0, while Huddersfield lost at home to Chelsea 0-3. 888sport offers 1.67 odds for Manchester City to win by three or more goals and we’ll gladly take it.
Last season’s Champions are starting strong this year. After a 2-0 win in The Community Shield against Chelsea, they beat Arsenal 2-0 away in the first match of the Premier League. Manager, Pep Guardiola, has lots of players to choose from, so the absences of Kevin De Bruynem, David Silva and Danilo shouldn’t concern him too much.
Last season, Huddersfield Town managed to avoid relegation and were four points clear of Swansea, who is now playing in Championship. This year they strengthened their squad by adding centre back, Terence Kongolo, and striker Adama Diakhaby from AS Monaco, as well as left winger, Ramadan Sobhi, from Stoke City and right back, Erik Durm, from Borussia Dortmund. Unfortunately, the new players haven’t fit in right away, which was evident against Chelsea. Last year, at Etihad Stadium, the result was 0-0, despite Manchester City big domination. Huddersfield Town will try to play the same way as they did then.
