Man City vs Huddersfield : Preview, Team News, Telecast Details , Predicted Lineups & More

Defending Premier League Champions Manchester City’s next task ahead is to welcome tricky visitors Huddersfield Town at the Etihad on Sunday, the 19th of August. David Wagner’s side will look to break City hearts and open their account this season after succumbing to a 0-3 loss to Chelsea at home in the opening fixture. Pep’s Blue and White Army though made a perfect start to the new campaign, registering an impressive 0-2 win away at the Emirates against a rather lacklustre Arsenal side.

City have beaten Huddersfield 26 times and have lost on 22 occasions with 30 fixtures ending in a stalemate. Last season, City won one and drew the other against the then-promoted side including a very difficult outing for the Blues against Wagner’s men in May which ended in a frustrating 0-0 which might just keep City boss Pep Guardiola on alert this time around.

Team News:

Man City: With the news of Kevin de Bruyne being side-lined due to a training injury surfacing on Wednesday, Pep is set to miss out on the star midfielder for the coming 3-6 weeks. Excluding the Belgian, Guardiola has almost his full squad to choose from for the coming fixture. Also absent from team selection is Danilo who is still nursing an ankle injury sustained in Russia during the World Cup.

In the absence of de Bruyne, Pep has a variety of options to ponder over in replacing him in the starting XI owing to Bernardo Silva’s superb run and Ilkay Gundogan also being a viable option. Youngsters Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz will also be eager to get some playtime given de Bruyne’s long term absence will prompt Guardiola to rotate in the midfield position as the season progresses.

Huddersfield Town: David Wagner’s Terries will be without the pair of Eric Durm and Danny Williams with both being injured for the tie. The match could however feature youngster Issac Mbenza after the attacking Belgian forward returned to training earlier this week.

The presence of creative midfielder Aaron Mooy who moved from Man City last summer, will be crucial for the away side with him boosting his team’s chances to bombard the City defence and get them off the mark for the campaign. Apart from the injuries, Huddersfield should field an unchanged XI similar to the one which faced Chelsea last weekend unless Wagner has some different plans to deploy against Pep.
