City held 0-0 by Huddersfield to puncture party atmosphere

A strong showing from the struggling visitors earned a valuable point which may be enough to keep them in the Premier League for a second season, an impressive achievement given their limited resources. When you see all the trajectory over the course of the eight years I've been here, it's unbelievable. "You win or lose, you have to try and do what you believe. Today we saw it", he told BBC Sport.

Having claimed three domestic titles in a row with both Barca and Bayern, Guardiola is prepared for the challenge of trying to do likewise with City, adding that Sunday's surprisingly poor performance against Huddersfield shows they can improve next term. "It looks like every day, every time I am here it looks like I am alone but not alone fortunately for me so they deserve all of my respect".

Supporters were issued with blue and white flags, creating a colourful vista to greet the champions as they were given yet another guard of honour on their way onto the field before the start of the game. These title celebrations have been curiously drawn out.

City's players were due to come back out of their dressing room soon after the final whistle to collect the league trophy that was won two weeks ago.

Since winning the title, City have thrashed Swansea 5-0 and West Ham 4-1 but were unable to maintain that intensity against David Wagner's battling side.

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

Yet a 0-0 home draw with Huddersfield meant Guardiola's side were unable to set new benchmarks for the most points, goals and wins in
history.

City started brightly, with Christopher Schindler clearing off his line from a scramble at a Leroy Sane corner, but otherwise Huddersfield defended manfully and substitute Scott Malone might even have snatched a dramatic injury-time victor for the visitors.

Liverpool have work to do to secure their place in Europe's elite competition as an intense contest in stifling heat proved too much at the end of a week in which Jurgen Klopp's men advanced to the Champions League final.
