Huddersfield Town managed to hold Manchester City to a goalless draw in their fifth-round FA Cup tie at the Kirklees Stadium on Saturday to force a replay.
- Huddersfield 0 Manchester City 0
- Goalless at the break
- City dominate possession
- Terriers force replay at Etihad
In a game that City fans won’t want to be reminded of again, it was the goalkeepers that impressed, as Claudio Bravo and Joel Coleman both kept clean sheets.

Sergio Aguero dominated the headlines with his return to the starting line-up for the first time in five outings under Citizens manager Pep Guardiola.
However, the Argentine endured a frustrating afternoon as the Championship outfit matched the City in the midfield battle and kept it tight at the back.
The visitors had a few guilt-edged chances in this cup-tie, but Coleman looked unflustered at any shot that came his way.
In front of a record crowd of 24,129, the 21-year-old kept out efforts from Nolito and Aguero in each half while his opposite number looked surprisingly solid.
Bravo came under severe scrutiny for his displays since his off-season arrival from Barcelona, but the Chilean managed to pull of three fantastic saves – with Jack Payne's second-half free-kick being the pick of the bunch.
The stalemate will see the two clubs meet again at the Etihad Stadium for a place in the quarter-final of England's oldest Cup competition.
It's things like today that make the #FACup so special. It's always a challenge. We'll meet again at Etihad. C'mon City!
