Tip Reasoning

After their record breaking Premier League season last year, Pep Guardiola’s men faced a potentially tricky opener to the defence of their title. Manchester City made the trip down south to the Emirates Stadium to face an Arsenal side under the fresh management of Unai Emery.

It didn’t turn out to be a tricky fixture for the dominant Manchester City though. They controlled the ball for long periods at the Emirates, opening the scoring on 14 minutes via a magical Raheem Sterling strike and deservedly doubled their lead in the second half thanks to Bernardo Silva. It was a composed, efficient, and quite frankly a routine win for the visitors, despite their illustrious opponents.

That sort of performance doesn’t bode well for the potential challengers to Manchester City’s throne, and not many will be expecting them to slip up at home to Huddersfield on Sunday.

The hosts scored in all but one of their home Premier League games last season and have found the net in 17 of their last 18 home and away. The one blip on those records did actually come at home to Huddersfield, but a repeat of that goalless draw looks extremely unlikely here. Manchester City won 16 of their 19 home league games last season and scored a huge 61 goals in total, and they’re facing a Huddersfield side coming into this on the back of a thrashing.

David Wagner decided to experiment with a back three last weekend, and swiftly found out that a home game against Chelsea on the opening weekend of the Premier League is definitely not the time for experimentation. They were well beaten 3-0 in that home game, and they will be dreading this trip even more.

The Terriers won just three of their 19 away games last season and failed to score in a huge 13 of them. Manchester City, meanwhile scored at least three goals in 13 of their 19 home games. Unsurprisingly, this resulted in a lot of high scoring affairs, and with 12 of their home games seeing at least four goals, backing Over 3.5 Goals here looks a fantastic bet. We’re going for that along with a comprehensive 4-0 win for Pep Guardiola’s side.
