Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner has said that he doesn’t have any plans on how to stop Manchester City. The Terriers had a poor start to the Premier League as they lost 3-0 at home to Chelsea. They have another daunting task this weekend as they take on Manchester City.
Wagner said, “You like to test yourselves against the best – Manchester City are the best – and we will try and make it an uncomfortable afternoon for them. You have to be, more than ever, forcused on yourself instead of your opponent. You have to prepare every player as much as you can and be tight in your gameplan.
We have the experience that in these games, you can get results and we will fight for the chance. We have to be at our best. We have to be brave too and trust our abilities and our skills. But in these games you need the small margins to go in your favour. We saw it against Chelsea last week when the deflection carried the ball in and we hit the post in the offence.”
David Wagner also said that his club is used to entering the match as the underdogs. He said, “More or less for three years we have been underdogs every single weekend – that won’t change. But it is possible to get a result in these games. You cannot count on it, but we will fight for it.”
Last season, Huddersfield Town lost 1-2 at home and drew 0-0 in the away fixture.
