Llorente's blushes were spared as Spurs recovered to grab a last-gasp 2-1 victory. With Harry Kane out for two months with an ankle injury and Son Heung-min now with South Korea at the Asian Cup, Pochettino is set to be without his three leading scorers for the next few weeks.

City's fourth consecutive win since back-to-back losses over Christmas took them to 56 points from 23 games with Liverpool on 60 after they beat Crystal Palace on Saturday 4-3. It was not the demolition many had predicted but ultimately it was mission accomplished for City, who have now scored 23 goals without reply and not conceded for 386 minutes. Continue reading for a match preview of Huddersfield against Manchester City with a selected best betting tip.

Sane moved five assists clear off second-place Sterling, which played 18 decisive passes throughout the same period.

Huddersfield take on Everton in 8 days time, whilst Man City will have the monumental task of holding off Burton in the League Cup semi-final 2nd leg, going in with a 9-0 aggregate lead.

Pep Guardiola's side upped the tempo early in the second half and Raheem Sterling headed in their second goal in the 54th minute before Leroy Sane made it 3-0 two minutes later.

"It has been too long (since I last scored), we needed to bounce back after United, we knew it would be a tough game, we had to try and dig in and do our best and we got lucky and got the three points".


With an own-goal and a glaring miss, Fernando Llorente failed his audition to be the short-term replacement for Kane.

City was perhaps fortunate to lead at halftime, with Danilo's long-range strike only finding the net because of a deflection off the head of Huddersfield defender Christopher Schindler.

The tall Spanish striker came into the game having played just 36 minutes of Premier League action this season, from six appearances as a late substitute.

Luckily for him, Alli was more ruthless as he headed in Christian Eriksen's delivery in the 51st minute. That goal saw City reach 100 goals for the season in all competitions. Huddersfield is in even bigger trouble, 10 points from safety.

Defeat left Fulham seven points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United and facing an increasingly hard task to avoid being relegated back to the Championship.
