Huddersfield Town enter into a new era by facing one of the toughest opponents in the business – Manchester City – at the John Smith’s Stadium this weekend. Huddersfield remain at the bottom of the table and manager David Wagner decided to leave the club by mutual consent. Manchester City are in pursuit of Liverpool, who have a four-point advantage come into the game. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Huddersfield Town have appointed Mark Hudson as the replacement for David Wagner, whose last game in charge of the team was a goalless draw with Cardiff City.
Manchester City were able to get a comfortable 3-0 success over Wolves, although they were helped by the opposition being reduced to 10 men after just 19 minutes.
The reverse fixture witnessed Manchester City humiliating Huddersfield with a 6-1 victory at Etihad Stadium. City had to work much harder in order to get a 2-1 success in their last visit to the John Smith’s Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Manchester City.

Huddersfield Town may have just undergone a managerial change that may prove beneficial in helping the club get out of the bottom three, but it is highly unlikely that Hudson may start his tenure with a victory. Manchester City have been through some difficult away games of late, but they have slowly picked up form and are now playing at a far superior level than most of the Premier League teams. City will not be keen on dropping points against a team at the bottom of the table and it is unlikely that they will do the same. Our preview would back a win for City.

Huddersfield Town vs Manchester City draw odds: 7.50
Huddersfield Town win odds: 17.00
Correct Score odds
Manchester City have been able to score an incredible 24 goals in the last five matches. While Huddersfield have certainly not been taken for a ride in the last few games, the squad will have memories of the 6-1 hammering suffered earlier in the campaign. City have been able to hit a strong scoring patch over the last few weeks and our correct score prediction would go with a 3-0 win for City.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Manchester City have been the top scorers in the Premier League by a significant margin. Even though Liverpool are not far behind in terms of goal difference, City are in a different league. Huddersfield are also in a different league but with regards to not scoring goals. David Wagner’s men are the lowest scoring team in the division by a huge margin. Still, our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Gabriel Jesus has been in fine form over the last few weeks and he has been able to score an incredible seven goals in the last three matches alone. It has taken the Brazilian time to warm up this season, but his recent form makes our first goalscorer prediction go with Jesus.
