Manchester City defeat Huddersfield, set record

This will be a familiar situation for many

On Sunday he was at the heart of City's best play, winning the penalty for Sergio Aguero's equaliser before bundling home the victor in the 84th minute.

The win set a new club record of 11 consecutive league wins and Guardiola reckons his men showed the sort of spirit needed to be crowned champions next May.

"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".

Guardiola, whose side have dropped points in just one of their 13 Premier League games this season, said: "We said that we needed this situation to happen - you have to live it, to be in trouble". Sergio and Gabriel didn't play all the games - normally both are better - but it's good.

"Eighteen wins in a row is wonderful, including 11 Premier League wins in a row". Because there are games every three days and you have to play a lot of games like this. "We made an outstanding performances in that sense".

Pep Guardiola's men continued to push for the victor and it eventually came in the 84th minute when a Gabriel Jesus shot deflected off the keeper and onto Sterling before looping into the back of the net.

Guardiola added: "He is still young and he can still improve".

"I am impressed, but still he is 22 years old".

"I think it was a penalty to City, it was holding in the box. We'll be there to help him".
