Welcome to our first live blog of the 2018/19 season.

Manchester City are looking to follow up last week’s superb opening day victory at Arsenal as Huddersfield come to town. The blues have failed to score in the last four matches at home to The Terriers, losing two and drawing two since that 10-1 demolition job in November 1987. Will it be another blank for the blues, or can City continue where they left off in London last week?

Stay with us to find out. We’ll bring you all the goals as they happen.
