Last placed Huddersfield will take on reigning champions Manchester City on Sunday. The Terriers are almost certain for the drop down to the Championship and only a wonder might save them. They parted ways with manager David Wagner on Monday after their goalless draw with Cardiff and will be led by interim manager Mark Hudson. Manchester City are not slowing down in their pursuit of Liverpool and overcame Wolverhampton last weekend. They boost the best attack and the joint 2nd best defence in the league.
