Huddersfield 0 Man City 3: Leroy Sane stars as champions cut title gap on Liverpool
Huddersfield vs Manchester City: The Huddersfield Town will host the Champions of Premier League The Man City at 1:30 pm in the Second day of GameWeek23.

Manchester City closed the gap on Liverpool at the top of the Premier League to four points with a comfortable win at Huddersfield.

Goals from Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane secured a routine 3-0 victory after Danilo’s heavily deflected strike had opened the scoring.

Pep Guardiola recalled Sergio Aguero to lead the line, despite Gabriel Jesus’ return of seven goals in his last two games, while Kevin De Bruyne started a Premier League game for the first time since Boxing Day.

-Huddersfield Town vs Manchester City-

The Terriers remain bottom of the Premier League and eight points adrift of safety,

City put six past this weekend’s opposition on their own turf and will fancy their chances of another big win against a club still reeling from their manager’s surprise departure.

There have been 79 meetings between these two sides over the years with City winning 27 of those. Huddersfield aren’t that far behind with 22 wins of their own.

You have to go back to 1999 for their last victory, however.  


Mark Hudson will select his first Huddersfield line-up since being named as caretaker head coach.

Captain Tommy Smith could return from a hamstring injury after being an unused substitute in the draw against Cardiff.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is a doubt with a muscle problem but manager Pep Guardiola has no other fresh injury problems.

Left-back Benjamin Mendy, who has had a knee injury since November, is nearing a return but is not yet ready.

Benjamin Mendy is “three or four” training sessions away from a first-team return following his knee injury.

Pep Guardiola meanwhile has suggested he could opt to name both Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero in the same starting XI this weekend.

City hope Vincent Kompany recovers from a strain to be included in the squad.


Huddersfield were thumped 6-1 by Manchester City in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

City’s 10-1 win when the teams met in the old Second Division in 1987 remains a record league win for them, and a record league defeat for Huddersfield.
