Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was far from satisfied despite seeing his side cut Liverpool's lead at the top of the Premier League to four points with a 3-0 win away to basement club Huddersfield on Sunday.

Huddersfield will have regretted failing to take advantage of City's lesser performance in the first half, which they drifted back into towards the end of the second, but the damage had by then been done.

This was by no means City's most outstanding display of the season but, ultimately, goals from Danilo, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane ensured they did not trip up in the latest leg of their quest to keep the Premier League title-race alive.

"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". With social media being so prevalent now, it really can be a thankless job for the men in the middle but sometimes there's just no excusing the errors that they make.

"We have to improve our pace, ..."

18' GOAL! Danilo scores from a deflection off Schindler, who has ducked to avoid the ball.

"One team has been better but we're in January and there's many more games to play", he added.

"The way we played we didn't deserve more than three goals", Guardiola told the BBC. So far, so good.

It was a poor advert for the Premier League with Huddersfield, who look nearly certain to get relegated and who parted company with manager David Wagner this week, offering next to nothing as an attacking force. We have to go to Old Trafford too and try to win there.

It was a poor advert for the Premier League with Huddersfield, who look nearly certain to get relegated and who parted company with manager David Wagner this week, offering next to nothing as an attacking force. We have an incredible number of points.

After a lacklustre first half, City came out quickly after the break, scoring twice in the opening 10 minutes to kill off the game.

Two minutes later Danilo intercepted a wayward pass and his first-time ball forward was cushioned by the head of Sergio Aguero to Sane who neatly side-footed inside the post.

It was noted that taking the Afghan peace process forward remained a shared responsibility. The US official was in Beijing this weekend and held talks with senior Chinese officials.

In a tiresome first half, despite taking the lead in the 18th minute thanks Danilo's strike which deflected off Christopher Schindler, Manchester City were not at their best.
