Why Riyad Mahrez missed Manchester City vs Huddersfield

Huddersfield 0 Manchester City 3 Man City travelled to Huddersfield in the Sunday’s first Premier League game of the day.

This was also the Terriers first game of the post-David Wagner era. The relegation-battling side did start the game ok but would eventually be broken down in the 18th minute. Dan...
