Manchester City are indeed a machine with Pep Guardiola at the helm.

City once again proved how lethal they can be, during a game against Huddersfield Town, when they secured an impressive 5-0 win.

Even though Erlin Haaland is still injured, and Kevin de Bruyne has only returned from injury, City were expected to run riot. The manner in which they secured the win, though, saw them reach a new milestone at home.

With City looking to defend their FA Cup title, Guardiola's men will look to add on to those impressive numbers.

Foden's double guides City to victory

While City were expected to brush Huddersfield aside easily, they did have to wait till the half-hour mark to open the scoring.

Phil Foden scored in the 33rd minute with a vicious shot to give his side the lead and open the floodgates.

Foden then grabbed the fourth goal of the game with a long-range effort, reported.

De Bruyne returns to the fold

Kevin de Bruyne has not featured for City since August but returned in a big way.

The Belgian came on as a substitute in the second half and set up Jeremy Doku for the fifth and final goal of the game.

Guardiola on the brink of history

Sports Brief also reported that Pep Guardiola could make history as the manager with the most wins in the competition if his team overcomes the Copa Libertadores champions in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The Spaniard has won the competition three times - twice with Barcelona and the third after taking over Bayern, who won the 2013 UCL. He would win his fourth if he guided Man City to victory on Friday.
