Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola hailed his side from a come-from-behind win against Huddersfield Town A.F.C. at the Kirklees Stadium.
The City was down 1-0 after a Nicolas Otamendi’s own goal in the 46th minute of the match that gave Huddersfield the lead.
“We spoke at half-time about how to react, we had enough chances to score and the first time Huddersfield had a chance they scored. We spoke about not giving up, to keep going. It was a brilliant move to win the penalty. It is impossible to win every game easily, this league is so tough. The guys competed amazingly, which is why we won.” Guardiola stated
Sergio Aguero netted the penalty early in the second half that ties the game to 1-1 before Raheem Sterling got the winner in the 84th minute.
Moving forward, the City has now won 18 consecutive games in all competitions and secured their 11th successive victory in the Premier League.
“The 18 games in a row are amazing, and we have 11 in the Premier League in a row so that’s good. We have a good moment and with the spirit we can go further.” Guardiola added
Also, Manchester City established an eight point lead with 37 points in the league table over Manchester United, who currently has 29 points.
