Pep Guardiola took a swipe at Arsene Wenger after Raheem Sterling won a penalty and scored the victor for Manchester City in their 2-1 victory at Huddersfield Town.

City had the flawless response as Sergio Aguero equalized from the penalty spot before Raheem Sterling's late victor moved the leaders eight points clear of second placed Manchester United.

"We have a lot of players who have the ability to score a goal, not just the strikers".

"We are going to lose a game", Guardiola told reporters on Sunday.

Tom Ince's whipped corner from the right flicked off the unfortunate Otamendi's shoulder to leave Ederson helpless in the Citizens' net, with the goal the difference between the sides heading into the interval.

Sterling was himself fouled to give Sergio Aguero the chance to equalise from the penalty spot in the opening minute of the second half, while a once-promising day for Huddersfield ended badly when Rajiv van la Parra was sent off after the final whistle.

But protest leaders were adamant and refused to clear the intersection unless the law minister resigned. About 100 protesters were arrested Saturday, said Fakhar Sultan, a police officer in Rawalpindi city.

There was some fortune attached to the winning goal.

"We spoke about us needing this kind of situation to happen", said Guardiola.

City were far from at their best, but Guardiola was delighted with his side's gritty display as they claimed their 12th win from 13 league matches.

City's title rivals Manchester United were surprisingly beaten at Huddersfield in October with Jose Mourinho saying that the Terriers "wanted it more." "They guys competed amazingly, which is why we won", he said.

"But if you fight to avoid that mentally and in the way we want to play, that's fantastic".

City have won their last 18 games in all competitions and are unbeaten in their last 26 matches.
