Huddersfield Town v Manchester City: Citizens to continue goalscoring form in West Yorkshire

Our tipster thinks that David Wagner's men may struggle to keep Pep Guardiola's free-scoring charges quiet at John Smith's Stadium this weekend

Huddersfield Town will be hoping to make home advantage count when they face Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola's men maintained their eight-point advantage at the top of the table with a comfortable 2-0 win against Leicester City last weekend and the men from Manchester have dropped just two points after 12 Premier League matches this season - matching their achievement from the 2011/12 title-winning campaign under the stewardship of Roberto Mancini.

There is no sign at this stage of the wheels coming off for Guardiola's charges and, so, it is little surprise that the visitors are as short as 1/5 (1.20) with dabblebet to maintain momentum by chalking up an 11th consecutive Premier League win here.

Huddersfield, however, have been beaten in just one of their seven matches on their own patch this term and, having taken the scalp of City's rivals Manchester United last month, the Terriers will be eyeing another famous victory when the Premier League leaders visit John Smith's Stadium.

David Wagner's team have won both of their last two league matches on home soil and they can be backed at 12/1 (13.0) with dabblebet to take all three points from this one too, while the same firm go 6/1 (7.0) that the Terriers settle for a share of the spoils against Guardiola's men.

Guardiola's team have been scintillating in attack this term, scoring 55 goals in all competitions already this season; indeed, only Championship leaders, Wolverhampton Wanderers, have stopped City from scoring so far this season.

The men from Manchester have racked up 40 goals in their opening 12 Premier League matches and dabblebet offer 4/5 (1.80) that the visitors score three or more goals in this game, while Guardiola's charges can be backed at 5/4 (2.25) with the same firm to win by at least three clear goals this weekend.

It is not just in attack, however, that Manchester City excel; Guardiola's team have conceded just seven goals in the top tier this season - only Manchester United have conceded fewer - and chalked up their 11th clean sheet of the season against Feyenoord in midweek; dabblebet go 5/6 (1.83) that Manchester City win to nil in west Yorkshire.

Huddersfield will hope to shackle City, but the league leaders have looked irresistible of late and the Premier League debutants may well be overpowered by the visitors' tremendous talent in the final third of the pitch.

With City likely to dominate possession, the 5/6 (1.83) quote for the visitors to win to nil is tempting, but better value could lie in backing Guardiola's men to score at least three times on Sunday.

The selection would have landed in four of Manchester City's last five league matches and, so, dabblebet's 4/5 (1.80) quote for the trend to continue could provide a path to profit once again ahead of this weekend's match.
