City begin with four changes from the side that beat Wolves 3-0 last Monday.
Starting XI and bench
Ederson, Walker, Danilo, Otamendi, Laporte, Gundogan, Fernandinho (c), Sterling, De Bruyne, Sane, Aguero
Subs: Muric, Stones, Delph, D Silva, Bernardo, G Jesus, Foden
Danilo again gets the nod at left-back for today’s game, with Otamendi partnering Aymeric Laporte in central defence.
Fernandinho will pin the midfield trio that includes Gundogan and De Bruyne, while Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane will flank Aguero.
So, basically 4-3-3!

Ruthless Blues look to pile on misery
It goes without saying that City need to win today and win well.
The ruthless champions have shown against Burton Albion and Rotherham that there’s no such thing as taking the foot off the pedal with this team and expect the same attitude against the Premier League’s bottom side.
The Terriers come into the game with coach Mark Hudson in control and he’s promised an organised, energetic and together Huddersfield for this game.
City need to grasp the game from the go, quieten the home support and, if possible, go into the break with a good advantage.
Anything less could make this a much tougher game than it might look on paper.
The last meeting...
Stats and milestones
The champions don’t concede many on the road – the seven away goals shipped in the Premier League this campaign is the fewest in the division.
The Blues next goal will the 100th in all competitions.
City’s 19 goals in the last three games is one more that the Terriers have scored all season in every competition.
The only goal Manchester City have conceded in 2019 came against Liverpool. Since then, City have played 296 minutes, scoring 20 goals without reply.
Sergio Aguero has scored six goals in his last three games in all competitions against Huddersfield.
