David Wagner: 'Huddersfield achieved impossible with Manchester City shutout'

Swansea City and Southampton must both record a win apiece to force Huddersfield to earn another positive result in order to retain their Premier League status. "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.

A City side that had been held goalless in just one previous league game - a draw at Crystal Palace on New Year's Eve - inevitably carved out chances of their own with Jonas Lossl saving well at David Silva's feet after five minutes and, unknowingly, stopping a fierce Kevin De Bruyne shot.

Huddersfield gave their survival hopes a huge boost with a point that moves them three clear of the bottom three ahead of their midweek trip to Chelsea. For sure before the game a clean sheet and getting a point looked impossible, but the players have done it and done it again.

"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".

But Guardiola's heartfelt congratulations to his opposite number Wagner on the final whistle, demonstrated the importance of the point to the visitors who now join Everton and Manchester United as the only sides to have avoided defeat at the Etihad in the league this season.

Mariah Majors, an employee at the Carey Hilliard's on Highway 21, said she could see smoke in the air but could not see the plane. The plane was in the air for about two miles before it crashed into a field about a quarter mile from a busy highway.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbed the first and last goals of the game while Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolasinac and Alex Iwobi also scored to sink a side for whom European football is already assured.

"It's the Premier League. That is probably the closest part of my establishment I am in touch every single day but behind you so the picture we did with all the staff with everybody and everybody did his wonderful job and that's why we are where we are", said Guardiola. "Today we saw it", he told BBC Sport.

"I think next year is going to be more exciting than this year".

"I would like to thank everyone at the club, who makes it so special". For me this group of players has a special quality, not only on the pitch but off the pitch. "This team deserves it more than ever".
