Manchester City are easily the favourites to lift the Premier League title this season as they remain unbeaten, with a 8 point advantage, at the top of the points table. They took three points from their trip to Leicester City last weekend and backed it up with a 1-0 victory over Feyenoord earlier in the week, and Guardiola will hope that his side can continue their winning run when they travel to the Kirklees this weekend.
The Citizens face a resilient Huddersfield Town side, currently at 10th place in the points table. They fell to an embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth last weekend and will only face a tougher task this weekend.
Benjamin Mendy and John Stones remain the only injury issues for Guardiola, ahead of this game.
After a comfortable night in the European competition, Ederson will hope to have a similar time in the league as well.
The former Spurs man is easily one of the first names on the team sheet for Guardiola and he will keep his place at right-back.
Dropped from the team for the game against Feyenoord, Kompany, the skipper of the side, should be back in action this weekend.
He should be partnered with Otamendi, who has easily been Manchester City’s best defender this season.
Though Danilo has done a decent job when used at left-back, Delph, who has found some momentum and form, is expected to keep his place at left-back for this league game.
The likes of Gundogan and Toure were not too impressive against their Dutch opponents in the last game and Guardiola should turn to Fernandinho, to start as the deepest of the midfielders in this fixture.
The Spaniard was rested for the game earlier this week but should be back in the midfield for his side this weekend.
Arguably the best midfielder in the league at the moment, De Bruyne was sensational in the previous league game and will hope to put in a similar shift this weekend as well.
Another player who was rested for the UCL game, Sane has been in tremendous form this season and will be a goal threat to Huddersfield, from the right wing.
The Brazilian is yet to lose a game with Manchester City and will hope to continue that streak when he faces a tricky test against the Terriers.
Though he failed to make an impact against Feyenoord, Aguero remains the biggest weapon for Manchester City and should lead the attack for his side in this game as well.
