Huddersfield vs Man City

Victory for the all-conquering Man City will set a record among English top-flight clubs for the most consecutive away wins in all competitions. This record currently stands at 10.

A win for Pep Guardiola's side will also give them the most points (37) of any side after 13 matches of a EPL season, beating their own 2011/12 record of 35 points.

Huddersfield were thumped 4-0 by 10-men Bournemouth on the south coast last week, which doesn't bode well.

However, they've been much more solid at home, conceding only half a dozen goals in total - and four of those came in one afternoon against Tottenham.

Huddersfield Town midfielder Kasey Palmer (hamstring) could return in the next week but the Terriers remain without Philip Billing (ankle), Michael Hefele (Achilles) and Jon Gorenc Stankovic (knee).

Manchester City are without John Stones (hamstring), who joins fellow defender Benjamin Mendy (knee) on the sidelines.

Raheem Sterling struck late on as Manchester City came from behind to earn a 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town.

Pep Guardiola's dominant side fell behind in first-half stoppage time when Nicolas Otamendi deflected Christopher Schindler's header into his own net.

City levelled on 47 minutes when Sterling was fouled by Jonas Lossl and Sergio Aguero scored from the spot for his ninth PL goal of the season.

Leroy Sane crashed a free-kick against the bar but City's pressure told six minutes from time when Gabriel Jesus' shot was saved by Jonas Lossl only to loop back in off Sterling.

City move eight points clear at the top following this record 11th consecutive PL away win. Huddersfield, for whom Rajiv van La Parra was dismissed after the final whistle, are 15th.
