Premier League sides Leicester City and Burnley crashed out of this season’s FA Cup to lower-league opposition and Manchester City will be eager to avoid the same fate when they meet Championship side Huddersfield Town in a fifth round replay on Wednesday evening.
The Terriers held Pep Guardiola’s men to a goal-less draw at the Kirklees Stadium in the original tie and the Citizens will be going all-out to ensure that they make a better job of things at the Etihad Stadium.
Huddersfield are in a very strong position to make this a Premier League fixture, however we believe that Manchester City will give the Championship high-flyers a glimpse of what they can expect should they make it to the top flight for the start of 2017/18. Huddersfield Town’s best chance of causing an upset has now passed and they will face a very strong City side on Wednesday evening.
We won’t be surprised if the visitors find the net against a City defence which is far from rock solid, however we fully expect Guardiola’s men to shoot down the Terriers at the second attempt this week and the bookies clearly feel the same way with most firms going just 1/7 on a City victory and 20/1 on a Huddersfield win.
