Huddersfield Town recorded a sixth consecutive Championship win with a 1-0 home victory over play-off rivals Reading that boosted their automatic promotion hopes. Having held Manchester City in the FA Cup on Saturday, David Wagner's side continued their impressive form and cut the gap to second-placed Brighton and Hove Albion. Fellow top-six side Sheffield Wednesday suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Brentford, who lost Josh McEachran to a serious looking injury.
For nearly six years Manchester City have been waiting for a European classic here at the Etihad Stadium, a game to show them what all the fuss about the Champions League is about. First City knocked themselves out of Europe, conceding three ludicrous away goals to a deadly Monaco side. Then, realising what they had done, and how much they still wanted to be in this tournament, they roared back at Monaco, scoring three goals in 11 gleeful minutes to take the game 5-3.
