Sergio Aguero is fully fit once again and could come-back to the side for this one, despite Gabriel Jesus having scored 7 goals in his last 3 games. Nicolas Otamendi could come-back in at center back should Guardiola decide that Huddersfield, under caretaker boss Mark Hudson, will very deploy a direct style of play, focusing on set-pieces. Danilo could continue at left-back, where he played on Monday with Wolves. Delph was on the bench in that game while Oleksandr was left out of the squad. Bruyne is a good bet to come-back to the line-up in midfield, while Sergio Aguero could also come-back, despite Gabriel recent form.
Man City Possible Lineup:
Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Delph, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva, Sterling, Aguero, Sane
Injury News: Man city

Man City head to Huddersfield in a week where their PL opponents have parted company with manager David Wagner. Man City are unbeaten in their 6 meetings with Huddersfield since the turn of the century, winning 3 of those in a run which stretches back to 1 9 9 9. The reverse fixture in Aug saw Aguero help himself to a hat-trick as Man City ran out 06-01 winners, although they needed a late Raheem Sterling to strike to pick up all 3 points in the corresponding fixture last term. Huddersfield has not won at home to Man City since April 1 9 8 8, less than a year after they fell to their most serious ever defeat at the hands of the same opponents.

Huddersfield will be hopeful of an upturn in results in the wake of their managerial change, but this is the toughest beginning to live without Wagner that they could have been given. Manchester City is in blistering form at the moment and everything points towards a believing away win.

Manchester City: 25 Aug v Wolves (A)
Huddersfield Town: 25 Aug v Cardiff (H)
The Terriers have only won 2 of their 22 EPL matches this season. This is an abysmal record. Should Huddersfield Town continue on this trend, they will certainly be relegated. Huddersfield provided an upset last season as they drew 0-0 at the Etihad Stadium. Given the recent state of the club, however, it is unlikely the Terries will replicate these heroics on EPL Matchday.
Man City, on the other hand, is continuing rampant as they look to close down on Liverpool. The Blues won the reverse fixture this season by 06-01 and it is likely a similar scoreline is in store for this weekend. Man City also defeated their last 3 opponents by 19-0. Man City is heavy favorites this weekend, and it is hard to go against the visitors. Stranger things have happened, but this should be a daily victory for the Blues.
The 2-1 win over Jurgen side at the beginning of this month breathed new life into their title defense and also began a scintillating run of form which has seen Man City score 21 goals in their 4 outings so far in 2 0 1 9.
