Sergio Agüero scored a hat trick that helped Man City get their second win in as many games this season.
There was nothing premature about City's opening goal.
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.
Silva curled home a majestic free kick with his left foot to mark his 250th appearance for City in style.
An Aguero hat-trick looked inevitable - he had already hit the post and narrowly missed the target by the time he flicked in Mendy's glorious delivery 15 minutes from time.
Top of the highlight reel in the latest exhibition by City was a 70-meter pass from goalkeeper Ederson Moraes from his own penalty area that found Aguero running behind Huddersfield's defensive line.
"Manchester City can confirm Kevin De Bruyne has suffered a lateral collateral ligament (LCL) lesion in his right knee", a club statement read.
But it was David Silva, making his first start of the season, that set the tempo with another masterful performance.
Two wins from two at a canter for Guardiola's boys.
The Special One has said City might be a rich club that signs the best players but they "cannot buy class". Next up for the Terriers is Cardiff, and Wagner will be looking for a morale-boosting result ahead of the winnable tie against the newly promoted side. They are all playing for second place behind a City side that are showing remarkable similarities to Barcelona's 2011 Champions League-winning vintage under Pep.
