Why Title Party For Manchester City Which Could Spell Trouble For Huddersfield Town

Manchester City will be presented with the Premier League trophy at The Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon following their match against Huddersfield Town.

Whilst it will be an occasion for the fans and players to celebrate, boss Pep Guardiola will not be satisfied with anything other than a convincing win.

A win for City would see them climb to 96 points – the highest tally in Premier League history over a 38 game season, eclipsing Chelsea’s 95 point haul in 2004-05.

City have already hit 102 goals for the season and two more on Sunday would see them break another Chelsea record – the 103 goals they managed in 2009-10.

With three more games and potentially a few more goals, City could finish with 102 points and upwards of 110 goals and it is precisely that fact that means Guardiola is still demanding the very best from his players.

There have been a few changes in recent games but no change in terms of performance sand results.

City brush aside a hapless West Ham on Sunday and will be looking to add to the woes of three more sides still sweating for their Premier League safety.

Huddersfield ran City close in the return fixture at the Kirklees Stadium on a cold evening back in November.

Raheem Sterling as he so often has this season rescued City with a late winner, but it is hard to see it being so close this time round at The Etihad.

Huddersfield have struggled for goals in recent months and it is hard to see where a positive result will come from.

City may well change the side about again, with David Silva and John Stones in contention for starts, but it is likely to be business as usual for the champions.

Benjamin Mendy was also rested against West Ham and may return this weekend as could captain Vincent Kompany.

The celebrations will go on long into the night on Sunday but City will want to put on a show first and it could spell trouble for The Terriers.
