Mooy's Terriers hold City but party reigns

Steve Douglas

Manchester City have been kept scoreless for the first time this season in a 0-0 draw with relegation-threatened Huddersfield, slightly puncturing the party atmosphere on the day their players lifted the Premier League trophy.

The result meant City must wait to break a slew of Premier League records, with the champions still needing two points, one win and two goals to set milestones in a season when Pep Guardiola's side cruised to the title.

The draw was more important to Huddersfield, who moved three points clear of the relegation zone with two games to play - against Chelsea and Arsenal.

City last failed to score a goal in a league game at Etihad Stadium in April last year, a draw with Manchester United. City were held to a goalless draw by Wolves in the League Cup this season, before winning a penalty shootout.

City's players came out to a guard of honour made up of the Huddersfield team as well as players from City's title-winning team from 1968.

On a sunny day, there was a party feel inside and outside the Etihad but City produced one of their sloppiest displays of the season, their final ball lacking and striker Gabriel Jesus barely getting a chance at goal.

In fact, Huddersfield had the better chances - through Chris Lowe and Florent Hadergjonaj in the first half - before defending deeply and obdurately after halftime.
