Manchester City cruised to victory over last place Huddersfield Town and narrowed the distance to leaders Liverpool, back down to four points.

The champions settled for the 3-0 win and a fourth successive clean sheet in what has so far been a fantastic start to the New Year.

Goals from Danilo, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane had the Blues in full control. A nervy first half that thanks toi two second half goals ended an easy day for the Centurions.

On to the reaction:

Pep Guardiola Reaction

“The way we played we didn’t deserve more than three goals. We will improve in the future. We have to demand more from ourselves in every game and do our best, but sometimes it’s difficult. They defended deep and man to man

“In the second half we were better, especially the first 15. Our rhythm was not quick enough in the first, but we would take that result.

“I am honest with them and tell them all the time what I feel.

“We have to try and find the reason why we didn’t play quicker or better.

“After what these guys have done in 16, 17 months, it can’t be lack of intensity or not wanting to run.

“We didn’t make passes in a row, we had to move it quicker. We spoke about what we should do in the second half.

“We have to demand from ourselves to do our best every game. So far, we have been incredible. Champions League, one step from Carabao Cup final.

“We have incredible points - 56. It’s a lot of points. But every game teaches us and shows us what we have to.”

Leroy Sane Reaction

“He’s always relaxed but tries to give us the solution about what we can do better – he did it again and I think everyone could see in the second half it was much better,” Sane said.

“We know in the Premier League always out of nowhere is a goal and if they (Huddersfield) scored to make it 1-1 it would have been difficult to win the game.”
