Silva, who became the third City player after Joe Hart and Richard Dunne to appear in 250 Premier League games for the club, made way for Mahrez after 64 minutes but there was no let-up for the visitors.

Huddersfield did manage to hold City at bay for 25 minutes but were undone when goalkeeper Ederson superbly picked out Aguero with a pinpoint pass and the striker drew out Terriers keeper Ben Hamer before lifting the ball into the net.

Five minutes later, Jesus got on the score-sheet with a simple finish from close range after some good work by Benjamin Mendy down the left.

But, incredibly, Huddersfield scored from their first attack of the game, three minutes before the interval.

Gabriel Jesus, David Silva scored two other goals, on either side of the half, while Terence Kongolo of Huddersfield Town gifted City a sixth goal in the 85th minute, under pressure.

This could be Bernardo Silva's moment after his scintillating start to the season to make the grade from City's favourite luxury item on the bench to the main man.

Sergio Aguero celebrates after scoring his hat-trick and Manchester City's fifth.

David Silva had set the tone with a majestic opening half-hour, torturing the Huddersfield defence and allowing the City supporters to forget about the absence of De Bruyne.

City claimed the Premier League crown with a total of 100 points, culminating in a dramatic 1-0 victory at Southampton in which Gabriel Jesus scored the victor deep into added time.

Huddersfield worked miracles staying in the Premier League last season, but it might be an even greater surprise if they are to stay out of the bottom three a second year.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Mourinho gave a very brief analysis of the clubs that finished in the top six last season, and explained how some of them have strengthened over the summer. City just beat Arsenal on the road last week and is looking to build momentum despite losing star Kevin de Bruyne for three months due to a knee injury.

"Klopp wants high-energy players who probably haven't got the technical quality of a De Bruyne or a Silva".

"More than 100 games, winning the World Cup, two European Championships as one of the most fascinating, incredible players in the history of Spain".
