Eliasson reflects on a 'great win'

Niclas Eliasson turned in a Man of the Match performance with a goal and two assists as City secured a 5-2 win at home against Huddersfield Town.

The winger scored a rare header having set up City’s second goal, which has officially gone down as own goal, before his cross was inch-perfect for Ashley Williams who nodded in their fourth of the day.

City were 4-1 up at that point, with Andreas Weimann grabbing City’s fifth goal after the break, before Juninho Bacuna rifled in the Terriers’ second of the afternoon.

Reflecting on an impressive result, Eliasson said: “Yes, great win. [It was] good to bounce back from the lesson (West Brom defeat) during the week so we were all really motivated to come and do a good performance and get the three points.

“We’re very happy, yes. We wanted to start offensively, push them back a bit and we started well. We scored a few goals in the first half so it was a good performance.”

And Eliasson’s personal display earned the plaudits.

“I got a goal, scored a header which I don’t do very often so I’m happy with that. I think I got an assist as well so I’m happy.”

And describing his goal, which came after good build-up play between Josh Brownhill and Jack Hunt down the right, he said: “I thought Famara was going to overhead kick it or something but then I saw the ball come, and I just put my head to it and was happy to see the ball go in.”

The result not only sees City jump to fifth in the table, but stretch their unbeaten run of games at home to eight matches as they now prepare for a Sky Bet Championship trip to Fulham next week.

“We feel strong here, the fans give us that extra energy as well, especially after a loss during the week so it was good to get their support, get a good performance and I hope the fans are happy as well,” he said.

“We have a week now so hopefully it will be a few days of good training and we can go to Fulham and hopefully do a good performance there as well.”
