De Bruyne returns in style as Manchester City dominates Huddersfield in FA Cup opener

Posted : 07 January 2024

Kevin de Bruyne marked his return to competitive football for Manchester City in their FA Cup defense against Huddersfield Town at Etihad Stadium. After a determined defensive effort by Huddersfield, Phil Foden opened the scoring, driving home from inside the box. Julian Alvarez added another with a deft finish after intricate passing. Ben Jackson's own goal, a second from Foden, and a goal from Jeremy Doku sealed City's 5-0 victory.

 

Huddersfield, ranked 21st in the Championship, held out for 33 minutes but couldn't prevent City from showcasing their attacking prowess. Foden's brace, Alvarez's goal, and Doku's strike, along with Jackson's unfortunate own goal, propelled City into the fourth round. Despite some supporters chanting for a 10-goal win, Huddersfield's defense stood firm against a City side hungry for success after securing five trophies last year.

 

The return of Kevin de Bruyne added to City's positive outlook, with the Belgian playmaker entering the game to a standing ovation. De Bruyne, who had been sidelined with a hamstring injury since August, provided an assist for Doku's goal, showcasing his impact. Guardiola's team, known for their relentless pursuit of success, aims to defend the FA Cup and continue their winning ways in multiple competitions this season.
