City were sluggish in the first half, although they improved after the break following a stern team talk from their manager. "We will improve in the future", he said.
"Of course when you are fresh mentally and in the legs in the last stages it is much better, but also when you play every three days everybody is in the rhythm and focused".

A repeat of that looks highly unlikely this season and this match pitted the Premier League's highest scorers against the lowest, with Huddersfield having netted just 13 times going into this encounter and having lost eight of their last nine league games. We have to go to Old Trafford too and try to win there.
"We can do what we can do but for Liverpool v United we can do nothing".
