Huddersfield boost survival hopes with goalless draw at Manchester City

Record-breaking Man City will be remembered for 100 years says Fernandinho

Toure's departure was confirmed by Pep Guardiola ahead of Sunday's 0-0 draw against Huddersfield Town, after which City were presented with the league trophy.

However, City could not produce the style of football fans have become so accustomed to this season, with Kevin de Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus going closest in a game of few clear-cut chances.

Manchester City players and support staff celebrate with manager Pep Guardiola after their Premier League match against Huddersfield Town in Manchester on Sunday. They are also only a goal away from equalling Chelsea's record of 103 goals in a single season.

"It feels different. In this game, we were trying to score the extra goal, it was important for us but the very first year, in the 90th minute we still needed to score two goals so that was a bit different", he added.

"I know my players better than you, and probably you don't know them so well to be always with these questions".

With City's success being all but a certainty since the turn of the calendar year, virtually the only significant interest, for neutrals at least, has surrounded their re-writing of the Premier League's record books, with more marks potentially falling to Guardiola's men this weekend.

Even Guardiola, a perfectionist, might let off his players for their lowering in standards against Huddersfield.

"Here, it's more hard".

Huddersfield moved three points clear of the relegation zone with two games to play - against Chelsea and Arsenal.

Playing a Huddersfield side who have 35 points, 27 goals and 9 league wins this season, these figures certainly suggest City far out-gun their opponents this weekend, however, if football was that straight-forward then nobody would watch the games. "I think that's why we've gelled so well together".

"We had many players who were on and off and it's nearly like it's had no impact on the season whatsoever, which is a credit to the coaching staff".

Former City attacker Aaron Mooy fired wide from range before Florent Hadergjonaj and Alex Pritchard both had efforts saved by Ederson in the home side's goal.

After a quiet start to the second half, Guardiola made a decision to tweak his side in search of the breakthrough on the hour-mark by bringing on Benjamin Mendy in place of Fabian Delph.
