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.

Expert verdict
Ireland were held to a dull 0-0 draw by a Denmark team missing Christian Eriksen on Saturday and may suffer another stalemate against Wales in Dublin. Only a victory would breathe life into Ireland's hopes of winning League B, Group 4 but they are hard to fancy, having failed of win any of their last four competitive games.
