Man City score their 100th goal of season to beat managerless Huddersfield

Man City score their 100th goal of season to beat managerless Huddersfield

Sane has been outstanding this season for a City side chasing Premier League leaders Liverpool, having recovered from the disappointment of missing out on Germany's World Cup squad previous year.

Yet even so, Guardiola is happy with the idea of playing lots of matches if it brings plenty of trophies, and is not anxious that Premier League leaders Liverpool might benefit from a lighter schedule.

"What we have done so far has been incredible, in the league and the Carabao Cup".

In a tiresome first half, despite taking the lead in the 18th minute thanks Danilo's strike which deflected off Christopher Schindler, Manchester City were not at their best. "We will improve in the future". When a team defends like [Huddersfield], you have to commit sometimes to move them a little bit.

Mark Hudson, meanwhile, said he was satisfied with his team's spirited performance against City and said he enjoyed being in temporary charge of Huddersfield following Monday's departure of David Wagner.

"In the second half we played quicker and controlled it really good", the Germany winger told Sky Sports.

City was fortunate to go in front, though, with Danilo's effort maybe heading wide before Christopher Schindler stuck his head out and deflected the ball past wrong-footed goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.

Sterling, who had a strong penalty appeal turned down in the first half, scored the second when he dived to head in a cross from Sane in the 54th. And while Manchester City might not be in the situation where they have games in hand on the Reds yet, they have effectively been playing often as if they have.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, man of the match Leroy Sané, who bagged both a goal and assist today, explained how Pep's half-time team talk woke the team up and led to them stepping up in the second half.

Fulham on the other hand are seven points off safety and look set to return to the Championship after just one season back in the top flight.

"If we want to win the Premier League, we have to win every game week by week".

Danilo's opener was the Blues' 100th goal in all competition this season, flying into the Huddersfield net thanks to a heavy deflection.

"I'll still be here, fighting for this club".

"It's been a tough week, saying goodbye to the boss after three-and-a-half years".
