The day finally arrived when the Premier League champions got their hands on their much sought-after silverware, though the goings-on during the 90 minutes were not able to live up to the post-match fanfare.

In a match of few chances in comparison to what has become the norm in the blue half of Manchester this season, both City and Huddersfield went close on a couple of occasions, without being able to break the deadlock and find the back of the net.

With the visitors themselves still battling to maintain their Premier League status for another year, the Terriers became only the second side all season long to stop City from finding the back of the net – with the 0-0 scoreline a fair reflection of proceedings and handing an invaluable point to David Wagner’s men.

Despite the lack of fireworks during the match itself, the packed Etihad crowd still managed to excite themselves enough to spill on to the pitch at the final whistle ahead of the trophy presentation.

Once all had finally calmed, this season’s squad were fronted in their celebrations by the man at the forefront of both previous Premier League conquests, Vincent Kompany, who lifted the crown for both his and the club’s third time – joined by David Silva, Sergio Agüero and Yaya Toure, all three major cogs in City’s most recent golden era.

Ton-up?

With just two matches remaining – including a final day trip to a Southampton side hanging on for their Premier League lives – the Blues require a victory from both to become the first side ever to bring up a three-figure points tally.

Amid a season of firsts and broken records, this would surely be the most momentous feat for the league’s runaway side, with the draw here only the 14th point dropped all season for Guardiola’s men.

Having already clocked up a century of goals for the season, there will still be a sense of disappointment amongst the current City contingent if they are to miss out on the opportunity to write their name into the Premier League annuals for another huge milestone, and the manager has already set his stool out in an effort to bust every record that is still in sight between now and next Sunday.
