English Premier League: MD2 Sunday Roundup - Manchester’s mixed day

Fernandinho Manchester City

David Silva went out onto the pitch against Huddersfield with his son Mateo who is now fit and well after five months in hospital after being born prematurely.

The last time City beat Huddersfield at home in the league, in 1987, they scored 10 and after 35 minutes on Sunday the reigning champions were 3-0 up. He was outstanding last season. For them, conquering Europe is the final frontier, but that is a debate for the weeks and months ahead.

His blunder in failing to collect Mendy's cross for Aguero's second was inexcusable, while he made no attempt to get across to Silva's free-kick for City's fourth and could have done better up against Jesus. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. And lovely, lovely goals.

However, from the resulting goal kick, Ederson fired a long pass to Aguero and after the Argentine had remained patient as he found a shooting position for himself, the ball was clipped over Hamer and a defender before finding the top corner of the net. "You don't need to be disrespectful to have a fantastic movie", he told Sky Sports. It is all there in a technical masterclass of blue moon brilliance. They nearly killed the game off in the opening three minutes - Huddersfield's Steve Mounie slicing a clearance on to his own crossbar and Gabriel Jesus smashing the ball into a painful area of goalkeeper Ben Hamer before kneeing another chance at him from close range.


City claimed the Premier League crown with a total of 100 points, culminating in a dramatic 1-0 victory at Southampton in which Gabriel Jesus scored the victor deep into added time.

Sergio Aguero registered his 13th hat-trick for Manchester City as the reigning Premier League champions showed they were not missing Kevin De Bruyne in a 6-1 thrashing of Huddersfield Town.

Aguero then wrapped up his hat-trick with a smart flick from Benjamin Mendy's cross - before a Terence Kongolo own goal sealed an emphatic win for an impressive City.

City's rampant display underlined why they are such strong favourites to retain their title. Some excellent stops by the inundated Hamer and a few obvious misses halted the score from hitting double figures with City enjoying 77 percent of possession and revelling in 32 shots at goal.
