Manchester City maintain 8-point lead with 2-1 win over Huddersfield

Manchester City maintain 8-point lead with 2-1 win over Huddersfield

Raheem Sterling's fortunate late victor gave City the three points after they recovered from the shock of falling behind to a Nicolas Otamendi own goal on the stroke of half-time.

"The Premier League is so tough, now winter has come, we knew they were so aggressive, so strong, but we are so happy for the way we won", Guardiola told BBC Sport.

Ashley Young reinvented Ashley Young joined Manchester United from Aston Villa in 2011 as a flying winger but has reinvented himself as a left wing-back and has forced his way into Jose Mourinho's starting lineup, keeping out more specialist defenders. "We spoke about not giving up, to keep going".

Pep Guardiola has acknowledged that the Premier League is a tough competition after Manchester City scraped a 2-1 win away at Huddersfield Town on Sunday. For instance when you play against Napoli - they played an awesome 30 minutes and you have to accept it and say they played better than us in that period of the game. "It was a big win in a real Premier League game". He's winning games. Now he's a winning player.

Trailing to Nicolas Otamendi's first half own goal, City were in danger of a first defeat of the season against fired-up opponents on a freezing afternoon in Yorkshire.

But Guardiola's men dug deep to hit back through Aguero's penalty and a lucky rebound from Sterling on 84 minutes.

Sterling was himself fouled to give Sergio Aguero the chance to equalise from the penalty spot in the opening minute of the second half, while a once-promising day for Huddersfield ended badly when Rajiv van la Parra was sent off after the final whistle.

"I am impressed, but still he is 22 years old. We'll be there to help him". I've not seen the video (of the sending off).
