Raheem Sterling to the rescue as City leaves it late at Huddersfield

Raheem Sterling claimed a lucky late winner as Manchester City came from behind to restore their eight-point Premier League lead with a 2-1 win at Huddersfield.
Sterling was the beneficiary as the ball rebounded off him into. the net six minutes from time to break the resistance of the determined Terriers at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Huddersfield had claimed the lead courtesy of a Nicolas Otamendi own goal just before the break but City responded with a Sergio Aguero penalty.

The visitors then went on to dominate the second period but appeared to be running out of ideas when Sterling accepted a late gift for his 12th goal of the season. 

Town forward Rajiv van la Parra was sent off straight after the match following an altercation with Leroy Sane, who was booked.

The game kicked off amid a fevered atmosphere and the passionate home support — much as it did for last month’s unexpected defeat of Manchester United — energised the Terriers. as they blunted City’s attack.

City were composed but it soon became clear they would have to be patient, and wary, as Huddersfield defended deeply and threatened on the occasional counter-attack.
