Sergio Aguero was the pick of the players for the home side with the Argentine netting a hat-trick, while Gabriel Jesus, David Silva and an own goal from Terence Kongolo added further misery for Huddersfield.
Jon Gorenc Stankovic scored a consolation on his return from a knee injury after 17 months out, but the Terriers were convincingly beaten by the defending champions.
