In fact, Huddersfield had the better chances - through Chris Lowe and Florent Hadergjonaj in the first half - before defending deeply and obdurately after halftime to secure a point that could prove crucial in its bid to preserve its place in the Premier League.

The result meant City must wait to break a slew of Premier League records, with the champions still needing two points, one win and two goals to set milestones in a season when Pep Guardiola's side cruised to the title.

England is so special, it's so tough.

But, in contract to comfortable City wins against Swansea and West Ham, there was no hint of Huddersfield showing the champions too much respect when the contest finally got underway at the Etihad. "We got it, we did it", he told Sky Sports.

"You never know you're going to win, nobody knows". Defeats are part of competition, nothing special.

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 showed they can improve next term. "The opponents want to beat you, maybe you will relax and you have to be focused if you want to maintain what we have done this season and that is the, that is the point but help us to understand this game for example how hard it will be next season because sport it is so complicated", added Guardiola. "It was warm; it was so tough", he said. Eleven players there [from Huddersfield] playing to stay in the Premier League.

"It looks easy when you've won a lot of games - it's so tough and next season will be tougher because the opponents want to beat you, maybe we will be a little bit relaxed and you have to be focused if you want to maintain what we have done this season".

"Here, it's more hard".

After Manchester City tweeted in support of Alex Ferguson on Saturday, the mood at the Etihad was celebratory from start to finish yesterday as the coronation of Pep Guardiola's champions should be. But I think the most important thing is to play well and after we'll see what is our level. "We have to try to make the last effort".

City captain Vincent Kompany praised Guardiola and his coaching staff for bringing a new impetus to the club.

"I'm delighted [to have won three Premier League titles], to be honest". Then City will aim to become an even more celebrated team by retaining the title for the first time.
