City beat Huddersfield 3-0, move 4 points behind Liverpool
Published in Ahram Online on 20 - 01 - 2019

Manchester City had no problems keeping the pressure on Liverpool in the Premier League title race on Sunday, beating last-placed Huddersfield 3-0 to trim the gap to the leaders to four points.
A deflected 18th-minute strike from Danilo was added to in the second half by wingers Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane as City eased to a fifth straight win in all competitions.
The afternoon began ominously for Huddersfield, with a parting message on the stadium's big screen by former manager David Wagner - who left his position on Monday - failing to reach fans because the sound didn't work.
Things didn't work any better on the field as the team, coached on a temporary basis by Mark Hudson, stayed 10 points adrift of safety and heading for a return to the second tier.
City did need a huge stroke of luck to go in front, though, with Danilo's long-range shot maybe heading wide before Christopher Schindler stuck his head out and deflected the ball past wrong-footed goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.
It was City's 100th goal of the season in all competitions.
Sterling, who had a strong penalty appeal turned down in the first half, scored the second when he dived to head in a cross from Sane in the 54th.
Sane then got on the score sheet himself, running onto a knock-down from Sergio Aguero and sidefooting a finish past Lossl.
