Manchester City had to come from behind today, as goals from Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling secured all three points for Pep Guardiola’s side against Huddersfield at the John Smith Stadium.
Huddersfield took the lead through an own goal from Argentine international Nicolas Otamendi.
City then drew level from an Aguero penalty two minutes after half time, before a goal from Sterling seven minutes from time saw Guardiola’s side snatch a win from under the noses of Huddersfield.
Man of the Match
England international Raheem Sterling was the difference today, with the former Liverpool ace picking up a goal and an assist as City continued their fine run of form.
The player’s turn of pace and positioning was key as the England star was the difference between the two sides today.
This tweet sums up just how good the winger was not just this evening, but this season as well
Sterling up there with KDB and Silva so far this season. Top top quality.

Flop of the Match
Huddersfield’s Scott Malone had an awful game today, with Sterling running the former Fulham defender ragged.
The player received a booking for his troubles, with manager David Wagner even subbing the player off in the second half just to add insult to injury.
This tweet shows just how bad a game Malone had today
Scott Malone, the gift who keeps on giving goals away

18 wins in a row and 19 wins out of 20 games this season. Absolutely ridiculous numbers from Man City.
