The chase continues!

Never mind that this was hardly Manchester City at their best, a routine victory over Huddersfield moves Pep Guardiola’s team back to within four points of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.

More to the point, another three strikes were added to their bold attempt to break every known goalscoring record.


For Huddersfield the consequence was very different. This was a defeat that leaves them ten points adrift of safety, in danger of a permanent crick in the neck with the effort of looking forever upwards. It was a dire defeat, ripe with evidence of the Premier League’s unbreachable quality gap, which provided a fitting full stop to a week which had begun miserably with the departure of David Wagner. It was somehow in keeping with unhappy circumstance that an intended message from the outgoing manager recorded to thank the fans failed to be broadcast before the game, after succumbing to a technical glitch.

For Mark Hudson; the man who stepped in to hold the fort after Wagner’s departure, there was to be no Ole Gunnar Solskjaer effect. With the Borussia Dortmund coach Jan Siewert set to be appointed later this week, this is likely to be Hudson’s sole match in charge.


But he will have had long enough, pacing the technical area throughout the game to have seen at close hand the reasons why Wagner felt he could do no more.

For all the wonders the German may have delivered in his three and a half years in Yorkshire, he has left Huddersfield with a squad so bereft of quality there is only one direction they are heading. Too many anonymous journeymen delivering too little meaningful application is no recipe for escape. The crowd’s ironic chorus of oles for every successful pass in the game’s dying moments a clear indication of a need to take pleasure where they can.
Not that City were at their scintillating best here. But then they didn’t need to be. For the first ten minutes they seemed oddly reticent, unable to find the right pass to unlock Huddersfield’s determined, if limited, defence. True, Raheem Sterling was furious he wasn’t awarded a penalty after Terence Kongolo brought him down after 12 minutes. And he had a point. Quite how Andre Marriner missed what was clearly a trip by the Huddersfield defender will remain one of the mysteries of the season.Sterling didn’t have long to brood on injustice, however. Five minutes later, Danilo whipped a speculative cross shot into the Huddersfield box. For some reason, Christopher Schindler decided to bow in front of it, as if in supplication, succeeding only in deflecting the ball off the top of his head beyond Jonas Lossl. It was City’s 100 goal of the season in all competitions. Perhaps more pertinently it was the 21 goal recorded since they last con
cluded.
