Manchester City defeat Huddersfield, set record

The victory also sets a new club record for City who have now won in 11 consecutive away matches in all competitions.

City dominated the first half and looked particularly threatening when David Silva got himself on the ball, the Spain worldwide crafting numerous chances.

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.

City were level again shortly after the restart, though, as Sergio Aguero converted a penalty and Leroy Sane almost added another shortly afterwards, rattling the crossbar with a fierce free-kick.

Vincent Kompany and Manchester City got all they could handle from Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium, but survived for a 2-1 comeback win that secured their unbeaten record for another few days.

Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini had 35 points at the same stage in the 2011/12 season. He's winning games. Now he's a winning player. City went on to win the league that season for the first time in 44 years.

"I was not talking about winning, losing or drawing the game, I'm talking about not giving up, being positive all the time, being focused on what we have to do".

"Today was a game that epitomised the Premier League, winter is here, it's colder, it's harder to move the ball, they defended well". We had chances and we were able to win and we are top of the group.
