Champions Manchester City were held to a 0-0 draw by Huddersfield in their English Premier League fixture at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The visitors dominated the game but could not find a goal.

In the 36th minute, Kevin De Bruyne nearly broke the deadlock for the Citizens with a fierce strike from 10-yards but goalkeeper Jonas Lossl produced a good save to deny the Belgian as the sides went into the break still goalless.

Supporters were issued with blue and white flags to greet the champions as they were given yet another guard of honour on their way onto the field before kick-off.

"It's a club without a long tradition in winning titles but I think in six years to win three Premier Leagues is not bad".

While the remainder of City's season is merely about adding gloss to an already outstanding campaign - and victories in their final two games would take them to 100 points - for Huddersfield the result was of potentially huge significance.

Captain Vincent Kompany, hoisted the trophy up into the air for the third time in his career.

"I'm so satisfied but the game showed me how hard everything is". It looks easy when you have to win games - next season it will be tougher. Today was proof we can do better.

'I think here [in England] it is more hard but I think that the most important thing is to prepare well then after we will see our level, ' said Guardiola.

With Huddersfield requiring one final push to get them over the relegation zone boundary, Mooy is the player upon which most their hopes rest.

Arsenal's destruction of Burnley to see off Wenger in style saw them move level with champions City for the highest number of points won at home this season. "We had many players who had been on and off this season and it has had no impact on the season and is credit to the coaching staff".

"But with these celebrations, this team deserves it more than ever".
