    He made the goal by actually missing the ball
    He went for it and actually missed it... that wasn’t skill, that was an error

    He did hit the bar with some great skill I agree but he was detailing quite wasteful

    The header that flashed wide was one where he couldn’t work out whether to head on goal or head across so did neither (match of the day highlighted it well)

    The guys not a bad player but he doesn’t help out game enough as he is so static

    Look at the list of top scorers over seasons the league and see how many brick played have freaky seasons so look good stats wise ...

    Another great pen for me was Ashley Williams who was king of the recovery tackle stats wise (on paper).... recovering from his own error most of the time

    Long ball doesn’t work most of the time as competent defenders practice dealing with it all the time

    Much better playing fast players who can hold their own

    Teams that tend to beat city/trouble them play with pace.

    Llorente is not the answer but I would happily be wrong

    Had half an eye on the Palace game but City have loved playing against the long ball

    as soon as Palace moved Zaha central he created the free kick they scored from

    Professional performance. Happy for Lucas, hopefully, he pushes on now given a run in the team. My gosh Huddersfield are awful! they don't even look Championship standard.

    Good to get this big win over Huddersfield. It has been a long time since we won a match comfortably like this. Huddersfield were poor and didn't trouble us at all. But we also did our part by making use of our goal scoring chances. This means we have now won all our 3 matches at the new stadium, scoring 7 goals without conceding any. Maybe our new stadium can be our lucky charm after all ! Too bad it has not been a lucky place for Kane so far.

    Well done to Moura for getting this hattrick and Wanyama for scoring his first goal of the season. This is the Moura we want to see, clinical and ruthless in front of gall ! All these while, Moura has been wasteful and clumsy in front of goal. Frankly, Moura could be leading as the league's top scorer if he had scored from all his chances this season. Moura took all his goals well. Moura now has 10 league goals and should aim to finish as the top goal scoring Brazilian in the league, above Firminho and Richarlison who both have 12 goals so far. At least Moura has made history as the first player to score a hattrick at our new stadium. Great to see Wanyama scoring as well. He took his goal like a top striker, so composed and calm ! Too bad Llorente failed to score, despite coming close a few times. Credit also to Eriksen and Son for getting 1 assist each. But it was annoying to see Eriksen wasting freekicks yet again !

    Our midfield had a good match. This was largely due to the fact Sissoko and Wanyama was playing together. Great to see Wanyama returning from injury as he played well and even scored a brilliant goal. This should be our best midfield partnership until we buy other reliable defensive midfielders. This match showed how important it is to have a reliable defensive midfielder like Wanyama who protected our weak defence. Sissoko had another good match and even assisted the goal for Moura. Wish Sissoko had scored a goal as well !

    Our defence did well to keep this clean sheet. But was worried to see us starting with the error-prone with Foyth and Sanchez in defence. Fortunately for us, Huddersfield didn't trouble us much. But Lloris did make a few good saves. It would have been unacceptable if we had conceded a goal since we had never conceded any goals to Huddersfield before.

    Hope we will be boosted by this big win and go into the CL quarter final second leg against Emirates Marketing Project in a good mood. Special mention about Huddersfield. Sorry to see them relegated but we can learn a lot from them. Huddersfield have actually won more league titles (3) than us but have not won a trophy for over 92 years ! We have not won any trophy since 2008. We need to win a trophy soon if we do not want to end up like teams like Huddersfield, Newcastle and Everton who are once big teams but have not won any trophies for so long !

    I thought Llorente had a good game, he started sharply which helped with a slightly frustrating first twenty. Agree with those saying we should keep hold of him for another season. He looks happy playing at the moment and his game has got much tighter as a result.
