First up, we take a look at score predictions ahead of our clash away at Huddersfield.

BBC’s Mark Lawrenson eyes a 2-0 win for us.

“Huddersfield will not replace David Wagner until next week but, even if their new manager was already in place, I don't think it would make any difference to the outcome of this game.

“Manchester City are on a roll at the moment and they beat Wolves on Monday without really having to play. It was more like a training exercise.

“City had to come from behind to win here last season, through a late Raheem Sterling goal, but I think things will be more comfortable for Pep Guardiola's side on Sunday.”

While Sky Sports’ Paul Merson sees us securing a bigger win.

“Will there be enough light bulbs in the scoreboard? Deary me. This could be any score you want.

“Huddersfield have written this game off by sacking David Wagner in the week and announcing the new boss after this game. They've got no manager, are in horrendous form and staring at relegation. The players will be all over the place emotionally too.

“If City put their foot down then this could be a major boost for their goal difference. City made Wolves look ordinary - what are they going to do to Huddersfield?

“I'll go 5-0 and I'm being kind.”

Next, we take a look at the what the media are saying about Friday night’s FA Youth Cup triumph as our Under-18s progressed into the Fifth Round courtesy of a 4-1 win over Nottingham Forest.

The Manchester Evening News’ Simon Bajkowski scribes: “Gareth Taylor's side started quickly and Taylor Harwood-Bellis avoided any opposition marking to volley home from a Tommy Doyle corner. More quick thinking enabled Taylor Richards to fire the ball home from a free-kick routine, helped by a few deflections and Nabil Touaizi then beat a man and fired home to put the young Blues 3-0 up inside half an hour.

“Touaizi tapped in his second and City's fourth on the night when Ben Knight centred for him early in the second-half and the Blues never relinquished their control, regularly threatening more with Felix Nmecha a constant menace.

“Brennan Johnson scored a consolation for Forest from the spot in the final ten minutes but it is Taylor's team will now take on Derby in the next round after they beat Sheffield United 3-0 earlier this week.

“The young Blues will also hope to have impressed enough to earn an opportunity next week in the Checkatrade Trophy or Carabao Cup.”

Finally, it wouldn’t be media watch without some transfer gossip!

Although Pep has specifically stated that we won’t be looking to recruit this month, it hasn’t stopped speculation.

The latest reports from Yahoo Esports claim that we are interested in young Brazilian Ivan Angulo.

The media outlet claim: “The signing of Iván Angulo, announced on Tuesday by Palmeiras, went unnoticed by the general public because it occurred on the same day as Ricardo Goulart's arrival. But according to two local sources, Manchester City took note of the agreement and has already approached Palmeiras in search of a partnership.

"’A representative of Manchester City wanted to propose a future agreement,’ reveals an important manager of the professional football department. ‘We did not want to open a conversation. We are not interested in Angulo's partnership at this time,’ he adds.”

That’s all for today’s round-up, but we will back tomorrow with all the latest news and headlines from the back pages.
