Impressive Manchester City record highlighted before Huddersfield

Manchester City have found form in recent weeks after a blip late in 2023 and are now firmly back in title contention.

The Sky Blues must now turn their attention away from the Premier League, though, as they face Huddersfield in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. City are the current holders of the FA Cup and are 5/2 to win it again this year with bet365.

Manchester City to win the FA Cup

Impressive Manchester City record revealed

Ahead of the tie, a number of impressive Manchester City stats have emerged:

  • Manchester City have never lost an FA Cup match against Huddersfield Town (W3 D3), most recently claiming a 5-1 win in a 2016-17 fifth-round replay.
  • Huddersfield have lost their past two games against Manchester City in all competitions. They last lost three in a row in November 1987.
  • Manchester City have won their past 11 FA Cup home matches, scoring 47 goals and conceding just four. Their most recent home defeat in the competition was against Championship side Middlesbrough in January 2015.
  • Huddersfield have won just two of their past 17 FA Cup ties against top-flight opposition, although one of those victories was in their most recent such game, a 2-1 win at Burnley in January 2022.
  • This is the first time Huddersfield are facing the current holders of the FA Cup in the competition since 2007-08. The Terriers last eliminated the cup holders in 1960-61 (Wolves).
