What were people predicting this week?With many expecting City to get off the mark early, this match was the first in Golden Goal history where the 17th minute was NOT the most popular minute pick. This week, the 12th minute edged it out by less than 0.2b7f58c50f0e39ac2a}. The most popular correct score picks also didn't make happy reading for Huddersfield fans. The top 8 predictions were all for Man City wins, many of them by a heavy scoreline - indeed, the 2 most popular picks were Man City to win 3-0 and 4-0. The story was the same with the most popular goal scorers. It was no surprise to see Aguero and Jesus at the top of the picks, but you had to go all the way down to the 8th most popular pick to find a Huddersfield player - Aaron Mooy. In fact, Any Own Goal was a more popular pick than the Aussie.

The MatchSo, everyone picking their Golden Goal predictions were expecting Man City to run rampant at The Kirklees. But Huddersfield set out their stall early and were not just going to roll over. The most popular minutes came and went and it was still 0-0. Huddersfield had their game plan down - defend like heroes and hope to catch City on the break. Indeed, they nearly had that opportunity when Otamendi made an error in the 31st minute, but Depoitre couldn't get the ball out from his feet and the moment was gone. City were piling on pressure, but their best chances looked to be from a long shot (which they have many capable of pulling off) or a dangerous set piece with the likes of Kompany always posing a danger. https://twitter.com/putinologist/status/934817298703114240 Aguero nipped between 2 defenders to find a through ball, but he miscued in the 35th minute and couldn't open the scoring. It was the same story minutes later for the in-form Raheem Sterling who skewed his shot wide from 12 yards. A dangerous cross came in on 41 from Aaron Mooy, but despite 3 players in the box, no one could find the finishing touch, Zanka skewing his header wide of the mark. It was an open game and you sensed the goal was coming. And, the goal was coming - but NOT for Manchester City. Huddersfield swung in a corner, it came off Otamendi's head and Huddersfield had the lead on the stroke of half-time.
