Huddersfield v Manchester City

These 2 have met on 74 occasions and it might surprise you how close their record against each other is, Man City just edge it with 24 wins, Huddersfield with 22 wins and they have drawn 28 times.

Huddersfield are in fantastic recent form winning all of their last 6 matches, including last time out when they managed a 3-2 victory away from home against bottom club Rotherham.

Man City are also in a bit of good form winning 4, drawing 1 and losing 1 of their last 6. They have won their last 4 on the bounce including last time out away to Bournemouth when they beat them 2-0.

Huddersfield are probably even surpassing even their own expectations currently this season, they are in 3rd in the league and enjoying this cup run.

Man City will not be happy with their own league position they are in 2nd but some 8 points behind the leaders Chelsea.

Huddersfield have previously won the FA Cup, but that was way back in 1922. Whereas Man City last won the cup back in 2011.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner believes it is completely unrealistic that his side can beat Man City but it is possible and they have nothing to lose.

Pep Guardiola said he seen Huddersfield recently when they beat Leeds and he admitted they looked a really good outfit and believes they are full of confidence and momentum going into this one.

Man City are expected favourites in this one, they are priced @2/5 across the board with the big firms. The draw is @17/4 with Bet365 and Bet Victor you can get as big as @8/1 for Huddersfield to win with Bet Fred and Bet Victor.

I will be keeping my money in my pocket for this one but I can make a case for Huddersfield, that is a big price @8/1 at home especially with Man City having one eye on their Champions League tie against Monaco, in fact I have just talked myself into a bet I will be taking that 8/1.
