City 1-8 for title after leaving it late at Terriers
MANCHESTER CITY had to work hard before justifying their long odds-on status to win 2-1 at Huddersfield on Sunday.
Nicolas Otamendi’s own goal on the stroke of half-time suggested a shock was on the cards only for Sergio Aguero to equalise from the penalty spot and Raheem Sterling to put City in front with six minutes remaining, to the relief of those who backed the visitors at prices as short as 2-11.
The result kept Pep Guardiola’s men eight points clear of their rivals and 1-8 to win the title.
Bet365 are unchanged at 10-1 for City to go through the Premier League season unbeaten.
Arsenal are up to fourth following their dramatic 1-0 triumph at Burnley. The game was settled by Alexis Sanchez’s injury-time penalty.
Everton put in a shambolic performance as they lost 4-1 at Southampton. The Toffees are 16th and 7-1 to be relegated.
