Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has heaped praises on City’s forward Sergio Aguero, after the Argentine scored an impressive four goals in City’s 5-1 demolish of Leicester City at the Etihad stadium.
Sterling opened scoring in 3 minutes of play before the Foxes striker Vardy leveled up in 24th minutes. But it was Aguero’s goals in the 48, 53, 77, 90 minutes respectively that stole the show and gave City a well deserved victory before their home crowd.
The four goals scored means Aguero has taken his tally to 13 in 10 games in 2018, and has scored in seven consecutive games at the Etihad Stadium in all competitions (14 goals) for the first time in his Manchester City career, including two hat-tricks in his last three games
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, who saw his side win their 13th home game of the season to move 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, told BBC Sport that: “Sergio fought hard and he is so important to us.
“We played quite similar to the way we played in our draw against Burnley last week, but the difference here was we took our chances.” Pep said.
Aguero has scored four or more goals in a single Premier League match, more than any other player in the competition’s history and is the fourth player to score 20 plus goals in four consecutive premier league campaigns after Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry (five) and Harry Kane.
