Hudson new favourite to take charge of Terriers

Mark Hudson is the new 9-4 favourite for the Huddersfield job after David Wagner left his post by mutual consent on Monday.

The Huddersfield U23s boss leads a market which features Carlos Carvalhal (6-1), Sam Allardyce (10-1) and former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic (12-1). Allardyce has seemingly, though, ruled himself out as a candidate for the John Smith's Stadium hotseat.

The Terriers are eight points from safety and are as short as 1-16 for the drop and 10-1 to stay up. Huddersfield's next game is a daunting home fixture with champions Manchester City.

Nottingham Forest have appointed club legend Martin O'Neill as their new manager after Aitor Karanka departed after just a year in the position.

Forest are ninth in the Sky Bet Championship and have shortened to 10-1 for promotion to the Premier League this season following the appointment.

Man City v Tottenham

Key stats
  • City scored in the opening half of 16 of their 19 home league games last term
Expert verdict
Manchester City beat Tottenham in three of their four meetings last term and an early season duel at the Etihad should see the Citizens uphold the form. Spurs supporters may feel they won 2018-19’s most crucial clash – the 1-0 first-leg victory at their new stadium that saw the Lilywhites advance into the Champions League semi-finals at the expense of Pep Guardiola’s men. But while Guardiola has yet to crack the code in Europe with City, his team have barely put a foot wrong domestically. Fast starts against Liverpool in the Community Shield and at West Ham suggest they will look to seize the early initiative.
