UEFA Champions League
UEFA Europa League


That's all for our live coverage, thanks for following along. Goodbye!
Huddersfield spoil the party on coronation day for the champions as they put in a flawless display for an incredibly unlikely point, and a crucial one at that in their quest for survival, as they deny Manchester City their Premier League record 31st win and 103rd goal! Wagner's side are the first in the league all season to come to the Etihad and keep Guardiola's side from scoring!
90' + 4' WIDE! Wagner can hardly keep himself together on the touchline, but he can breathe a massive sigh of relief when he opens his eyes here, as Otamendi sends a first-time effort wide of the near post! That might have been City's last chance!
90' + 3' WHAT A CHALLENGE! Following another giveaway and chance for Huddersfield at one end, this for Depoitre, City come back the other way and nearly get in on goal! Sane appears to be through on the end of a good run and pass, but Kongolo makes a stunning tackle to snuff that out! He had to time that perfectly and did!
90' + 1' WHAT A TWIST THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN! An excellent challenge from Malone sees him with the ball at the halfway line and burst forward with daylight ahead of him. He takes a stride into the area and puts all his might behind a shot, but it's straight at Ederson who makes the save!
90' The fourth official indicates there will be a minimum of four minutes added on at the end of this match.
88' Huddersfield have failed to score in 19 different Premier League games this season; Sunderland in 2016-17 were the last to do so in 20, while the record in the competition is 22 (Derby in 2007-08).
R. van La Parra
Yellow Card
87' The third yellow shown to a Huddersfield player as substitute Van La Parra goes into the book. These are nervy moments for the visitors, who know just how close they are to a precious and unlikely point!
86' And now it's Mendy's turn to shoot, also making terrific contact with his effort from distance, but he narrowly misses the top corner! Back-to-back excellently struck efforts for the hosts that so nearly produced the moment of magic they've been craving!
84' INCHES AWAY! That's as close as City have come today! A corner cleared only as far as Bernardo Silva, who connects sweetly on the half-volley, but it drifts agonisingly wide of the far post! Huddersfield hearts must have stopped beating for a second there.
R. van La Parra
A. Pritchard
82' The final change of the match for either side sees Pritchard, who has run himself into the ground today, replaced by Van La Parra.
80' It's shaping up to be a long final 10 minutes for Huddersfield, who are camped out in defence as CIty send everyone forward in search of the breakthrough. Jesus does well to rise and meet a cross, but it's just a bit behind him which forces a header wide, as the visitors will get a bit of respite, if only for a moment.
S. Malone
C. Löwe
78' Cramping sets in here as Lowe, the man just booked, goes down in a bit of pain. His number was up anyways as a change was being prepared. He's replaced for the final 12 minutes by Malone.
C. Löwe
Yellow Card
76' Lowe picks up the second booking of the match, this for a foul on Sterling.
75' Pressure building here as Huddersfield can't find a route out from the back, but City can't exactly find a way through either. What makes Guardiola's side champions is their ability to break sides down in these exact situations - we'll see if they can channel that ability here on their coronation day.
Bernardo Silva
J. Stones
73' Guardiola makes his final change of the afternoon here with just over 15 minutes left, as Bernardo Silva comes on to replace Stones. City are going all out here.
71' City have only failed to score in two previous Premier League home games under Guardiola - vs Stoke in March 2017 and vs Manchester United in April 2017.
69' It's just not been happening today for City. The visitors have been able to combat every move the hosts make, anticipating each cross and pass, tracking every run and plugging up every hole in defence. City have a number of gamebreakers in their side, however, and it will only take one moment of brilliance for them to turn this around.
İ. Gündoğan
K. De Bruyne
67' City's second change of the match sees De Bruyne replaced by Gundogan - a bit of an interesting switch to take the playmaker off with City still searching for a winner.
T. Smith
Yellow Card
66' Huddersfield win a free-kick as they move into the ascendancy, but it's Smith who goes into the referee's book here for time wasting.
64' This would be a big blow for Huddersfield! Jorgensen dives in low to try and meet a free-kick, and winds up taking a boot to the head from Otamendi. It looked a painful one, though it was entirely accidental and it shouldn't keep the centre-half from playing on here.
62' Victory today would set a new record for highest number of points in a single top-flight season in England (96, currently 95 by Chelsea in 2004-05). When converting to three points for a win, only Liverpool (98 in 1978-79) and Tottenham (97 in 1960-61) have reached this many.
L. Depoitre
S. Mounié
60' A first change for Huddersfield as Depoitre replaces Mounie, who seems to have seized up.
59' CRUCIAL FROM JORGENSEN! A lovely throughball from Otamendi plays De Bruyne into the area and the Belgian attempts to cut it back for Jesus, but Jorgensen anticipates it brilliantly to cut it out and clear the danger!
B. Mendy
F. Delph
57' It's Mendy who comes on here for the hosts, replacing Delph.
56' Guardiola looks to be preparing a change as he tries to tweak his side to get the goal and the win the crave. They're finding it much harder here than anticipated, which has called the manager into action.
54' NERVY MOMENTS FOR HUDDERSFIELD! Lossl comes out to claim Sane's corner but loses control of it as it's knocked back towards goal, but Smith is able to scramble it clear off the line with Otamendi hunting it down!
52' Even though Huddersfield have had 26.9% possession, they recorded the same amount of shots as Man City (4), with one more on target (2), in the first half.
50' Huddersfield absorb the early pressure and respond with some possession of their own, doing an excellent job in midfield of combating City's high press to advance the ball into the attacking areas. This has been a flawless display thus far from the visitors.
48' City begin the second half on the front foot, enjoying all the possession as they get forward and search for the opener. This is going to be a very entertaining watch in the second half, with Huddersfield fighting desperately for their survival and City chasing the Premier League scoring and wins record.
46' Back underway at the Etihad!
Coronation day has yet to go as planned for Manchester City as a spirited showing from a determined Huddersfield side has seen the visitors keep the champions off the scoresheet through 45 minutes. In fact, Wagner's side will feel a bit unlucky not to have gone ahead through either Pritchard of Hadergjonaj, both forcing Ederson into action. Everything to play for in the second half!
45' There will be just one minute added on at the end of this first half.
43' The tempo has fizzled out with half-time rapidly approaching. Huddersfield have taken the sting out of the City attack, which is something very few teams have been able to say this season. All the noise coming from the stands right now is from the visiting support that have made the trip to Manchester.
41' The fans are starting to grow a bit restless, wondering when that goal is going to come. Huddersfield's work rate not just in defence, but all over the pitch, has been terrific in this first half and they deserve to keep this draw headed into the break.
39' Huddersfield lost their only previous visit to the Etihad Stadium in all competitions, losing 5-1 in an FA Cup fifth round replay last season, despite taking the lead.
37' Well the longer this stays goalless the more Huddersfield will start to believe. They're coming under an increasing amount of pressure now, but it would be a huge moral victory if they could get this into half-time at 0-0.
35' BIG SAVE! Fearless goalkeeping from Lossl to throw himself in front of a blistering strike from De Bruyne from 10 yards out! He took that square off the chest! That had to hurt, but it's a huge save to keep this game goalless and prevent City from snatching the momentum.
33' Patient building from City as they look to slow the tempo here and force Huddersfield to retreat. The quick tempo surprisingly hasn't been working great for them, with the visitors adopting an excellent gameplan to defend it.
31' HAS TO BE BETTER! Another excellently worked move in attack, with Mooy again the architect, doing well to slip the ball across for Lowe who is teed up for a strike, but the full-back fails to keep his composure as he blasts over!
29' Pep Guardiola’s side have already won 30 Premier League games this season, and victory here would equal the all-time top-flight record for most wins in a single campaign (31, Tottenham in 1960-61).
27' City haven't been able to choreograph one of their long spells of possession here, as Huddersfield have done a very good job of disrupting their rhythm and keeping the ball when they win it back, to prevent pressure from really building on their goal.
25' Better from the hosts as Jesus makes a good run to be slipped through via the left channel, and does well to roll the ball across the face of goal for Sterling, but the winger just couldn't check his run as he failed to get on the end of it.
23' Well this sort of confidence beaming from Huddersfield has thrown City off their game a bit. The hosts are just out of rhythm here in attack, and it must be said that it's actually the visitors who have carved out the better chances thus far. It's been an excellent watch through the first quarter of the match.
21' HUGE SAVE! Mooy is stuck in a tight space but still manages to poke a ball through for Pritchard in all sorts of space, who offloads a great effort that forces Ederson into a vital save at full-stretch!
19' Manchester City have scored 102 Premier League goals this season, one short of Chelsea’s record in the competition (103 in 2009-10). The last team to score than 103 in a top-flight campaign was Tottenham in 1962-63 (111).
17' City have had their chances in the opening 15 minutes, but this has been a strong showing from Huddersfield nonetheless. Wagner's side have come out to play here with their backs against the wall in the relegation scrap.
15' Huddersfield know they can't just sit back and defend for 90 minutes and expect to come away with a result, so little spells in attack like they one they're enjoying right now are going to be crucial to their success. This is good intent being shown by the visitors as they dig their teeth in here in attack.
13' JUST WIDE! Lovely vision from Sane who drives forward to back up the Huddersfield defence, opening up a lane to pull it back for De Bruyne, but the Belgian sends his first-time effort just beyond the near post!
11' BIG CHANCE! The visitors win a free-kick and it's very intelligently taken as Pritchard rolls through Hadergjonaj in a routine straight from the training ground - but the Swiss midfielder scuffs his shot from close range making for an easy save for Ederson!
9' Gabriel Jesus has scored in his last four appearances for Man City in all competitions – the last player to score in five in a row for the club was Sergio Aguero, a run of six in April 2017.
7' Pressure building on the Huddersfield goal as City get into their rhythm. Lossl makes a terrific stop on Silva following a lovely little one-two between the Spaniard and Jesus, and the visitors are unable to clear their lines after as City stay parked in attack.
5' It's an absolutely beautiful day for football in Manchester - one worthy of the champions being crowned. There's hardly a cloud in the sky on this wonderfully warm spring day, which is met by a wonderful atmosphere inside the Etihad.
3' The first threat of the match comes from City as they burst forward with great pace after winning the ball deep in their own end - De Bruyne springing Sterling into space down the left. The winger tries to pick out a cross for Jesus, but Schindler is on hand to head behind.
1' AND THEY'RE OFF! Manchester City in their sky blue kits as they get the match underway, with Huddersfield in black.
Wagner makes two changes from the defeat to Everton last weekend as Smith and Lowe come into the side to accommodate a switch to a five-man defence, replacing Quaner and Van La Parra.
Guardiola makes two changes from last weekend's victory over West Ham, as Stones and David Silva replace Laporte and Gundogan.
SUBS: Jon Gorenc Stankovic, Scott Malone, Collin Quaner, Rajiv van La Parra, Laurent Depoitre, Joel Coleman, Philip Billing.
HUDDERSFIELD TOWN (5-4-1): Jonas Lossl; Tommy Smith, Mathias Jorgensen, Christopher Schindler, Terence Kongolo, Chris Lowe; Florent Hadergjonaj, Jonathan Hogg, Aaron Mooy, Alex Pritchard; Steve Mounie.
SUBS: Ilkay Gundogan, Benjamin Mendy, Aymeric Laporte, Bernardo Silva, Yaya Toure, Phil Foden, Claudio Bravo.
MANCHESTER CITY (4-3-3): Ederson; Kyle Walker, Nicolas Otamendi, John Stones, Fabian Delph; Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, David Silva; Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus.
David Wagner’s side sit just two points up on the bottom three with three matches remaining, but the bad news is they close out the season away to Manchester City and Chelsea, before hosting Arsenal in Arsene Wenger’s final match in charge – zero points is a frighteningly real possibility.
While it’s a time for celebration in Manchester, the opposite is true for Huddersfield who find themselves under threat of relegation having won just once from their last seven matches – the ending has yet to be written for the Terriers, as their special season could still end in tears.
Going in search of history this afternoon, Manchester City can surpass Chelsea’s record of most victories and most goals in a single Premier League season should they score at least twice and beat Huddersfield on the day of their crowning.
Manchester City are going record chasing on this, their coronation day. It’s shaping up to be an incredibly memorable afternoon for Pep Guardiola’s side on the day they lift the Premier League title – two weeks after being crowned champions.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of this Premier League match as champions Manchester City welcome Huddersfield Town to the Etihad!
