Huddersfield Hold Champions Man City, Delay Record Bid

Manchester City


After confirming their status as champions nearly a month ago, City finally get their hands on the Premier League trophy today. "They are in a situation where they need points, they have three tough games but Wagner has done wonderful and it's a tough game".

City's players came out to a guard of honor made up of the Huddersfield team as well as players from City's title-winning team from 1968.

"We have incredible facilities, but the club got higher and higher because of the players".

"I'm so satisfied but the game showed me how hard everything is".

Danish shot stopper Jonas Lossl has done a more than decent job with Wagner's side this campaign and needs to be at the top of his game, facing up against a risky City attack on Sunday. Along the way, they amassed a record-equalling 11 successive away wins, a feat previously achieved by Chelsea in 2008. We lost a little bit of focus this week but it's normal. Pep Guardiola will be happy with the way his side stepped up and put nine goals past West Ham and Swansea in the last two games after the title was decided. It looks easy when you have to win games - next season it will be tougher.

"Today was the proof we can do better", Guardiola said.

"It was good we scored goals and created a lot of chances. When we started the season we believe OK and we wanted to try but I didn't know whether we would be able to win". Guardiola will want to end the season on a strong note and is not expected to rest any of his key players. "That is the best signal".

Manchester City, meanwhile, have won all but two of their home Premier League games, scoring 58 goals in 17 games and winning by three or more goals on nine occasions.

Chelsea hold the record with 95 in the 2004-05 season. City now lead by 17.

The Brazilian shotstopper doesn't think he would be allowed to convert a penalty - if one is awarded to the Premier League champions in their final three games against Huddersfield, Brighton or Southampton.
