Manchester City sets new record with Huddersfield win

Manchester City gave Huddersfield Town a sudden attack, grabbing the available three points and setting a new couple of new English top-flight record in the process.

The Sky Blues had a tough going at the beginning of the game on Sunday, trailing Huddersfield.

But a comeback against the tenacious Terriers not only gave City access to bag the three points, but also to reach a new Premier League milestone.

A Nicolas Otamendi own goal damaged the Citizens aspiration on the stroke of half-time as Huddersfield once again posed a menacing threat for Pep Guardiola’s men.

But Sergio Aguero scored a penalty early in the second half to level the playing ground before Raheem Sterling scored the winner in the 84th minute to provide the visitors with a hard earned victory.

It continued a remarkable run of away form for City as they have now won 11 games in all competitions this season. This a new record in the history of English clubs in the top flight.

The win also saw them gather 37 of a possible 39 points from their first 13 Premier League fixtures of the campaign. That pace is better than any club in Premier League history and ties the top mark the English top-flight with Liverpool’s run in the 1990-91 campaign.

And the comeback was also a broke a spell. Coming out for the second half, City was faced with the fact that had not won an away Premier League game after having a dismal first half since April 1995 against Blackburn Rovers, having failed 96 times to break that streak since the clash at Ewood Park.

But it proved just another problem for City to overcome as they cement their eight-point advantage over rivals Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table.

With 12 wins and just a draw so far, Southampton are the next team to be faced with the obligation of trying to stop Pep Guardiola’s team.
