Victory over Liverpool means a lot to Manchester City, but the fact is that at the moment they still cannot coup Marseyside Team at the top of the standings, and are still in 2nd place with 4 points behind. Therefore, Citizen must continue to try to cut the existing distance with Liverpool to open up opportunities to maintain the Premier League title at the end of the season. As for the continuation of this weekend’s Premier League at Matchdays 23rd, Citizens will face Huddersfield Town, where the match will take place on Sunday, January 20, 2019 at The John Smith Stadium.
Huddersfield Town will indeed play as the host in the match later, but it does not mean they are more favored to win, given the fact that this season the host’s performance was so disappointing. This fact can also be seen from their position in the standings, as Mark Hudson’s current squad is at the bottom of the table. Therefore, this match will be interesting because it brings together runners-up standings with the lowest ranking.
Manchester City are still ranked 2nd in the standings, four points behind Liverpool which they defeated some time ago. However, thanks to a series of positive results achieved in the last few parties, Citizen managed to cut the distance with rival clubs. In the last five parties in all competitions, Pep Guardiola’s team managed to pack 5 consecutive wins.
