Manchester City defeat Huddersfield, set record

Posted November 28, 2017

Earlier this month, the England global won his side a spot-kick in similar fashion in their victory over the Gunners, after which the Frenchman claimed that the winger "dives well".

Sterling was again at the centre of a big penalty call on Sunday afternoon as City recovered from a goal down at the John Smith's Stadium to win 2-1, going down under a challenge from full-back Scott Malone when his side were behind.

The decision to award a spot-kick to City came just moments after another flashpoint involving Sterling, as the 22-year-old went to ground after seemingly being felled by Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lössl, only to see his protests waved away by referee Craig Pawson. Maybe Arsene will say that is a penalty!

Guardiola praised Sterling's match-winning influence - and said the ex-Liverpool forward can still make a lot of improvements. What I really thought was that we should have won the game. It was a very important game, we did our job and I scored two goals, so I hope I can continue to play in that way'. Then, after the transfer market, they bought their first targets and then they have improved a lot.

"The start of this season was full of trouble with Eden because he had an injury with the national team and we started the season without him", Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said.

Conte's main concern is Manchester City pretty much running away with the Premier League, with Pep Guardiola installing an nearly unstoppable force in the blue side of Manchester.

'He's a winning player, ' Guardiola added.

The Brazil worldwide has been used sparingly by Antonio Conte this season, but made the most of a rare starting opportunity by scoring twice in the midweek Champions League win over Qarabag.
