Manchester City have scored 102 Premier League goals this season, one short of Chelsea's record in the competition (103 in 2009-10).

On a day when fans partied inside and outside the stadium and the side entered to a guard of honor made up of the Huddersfield team as well as players from City's title-winning team from 1968, City produced one of its sloppiest displays of the season.

Huddersfield are the first side since Chelsea in April 2014 to stop the team at the top of the table from scoring at home in the Premier League (Liverpool 0-2 Chelsea).

They now stand with 94 points, needing two points to break Chelsea's point tally of 95 set in the 2004/2005 season.

"Before this game we had three big, big opponents, two points ahead, but now we have two big, big opponents with a three-point advantage".

Teams who win Champions League are lucky, says Antonio Conte
Antonio Conte's sides chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season had looked dead and buried just a few weeks ago. Liverpool FC are in third spot and have a six-point cushion but Jurgen Klopp's side have played one game more than Chelsea FC.

At the other end of the table, Stoke became the first side relegated to the Championship.

The former Arsenal man described the Ivorian as "an average player" that didn't have goalscoring or goal-creating abilities in his locker. "You see all of the staff out there - that's why we gel well as a team".

The game itself, however, proved far from straightforward with the relegation-threatened Terriers digging in for a potentially vital 0-0 draw - and Guardiola warned that could be a taste of things to some.

Sergio Aguero is unavailable for the hosts, but John Stones could find a spot in the squad.

Wagner will not have Danny Williams (ankle) Tom Ince (hamstring) or Elias Kachunga (ankle) available for this match but is expected to name the same starting eleven which has begun the previous two games.

He said that in Jhunjhunu, deaths were reported but it has not been ascertained as to whether they died due to the storm . As reported by AFP , at least 111 people died in the States of Uttar Pradesh , Rajasthan and Punjab.

City are huge favourites to win and available at meagre odds in the betting market.

A muted start to the second half was only punctuated with the introduction of Benjamin Mendy, who was greeted by a warm reception from the home crowd as he replaced Fabian Delph to continue his recovery from long-term injury.

A draw is available at 12/1 odds at Bet365, and an away win is nigh impossible at 33/1 odds. "With what happened to my son [born prematurely in the spring], I am very happy, he is getting better, we have won title", Silva said. The English winger is available at 9/11 odds at Unibet.

"We help them when they play regularly".
