Aguero nets hat-trick as Man City thrash Huddersfield

Adjust Comment Print

Sergio Aguero bagged a hat-trick as Manchester City thumped Huddersfield Town 6-1 in their first Premier League home game of the season.

"Hat-trick number 13? Wow!"

Dominant from the first whistle, City were in a different league to Huddersfield, who struggled to deal with their adversaries all over the pitch, and some statistics to emerge from the game at the John Smith's Stadium just emphasise what a one-sided game it was. Agüero completed his hat trick on a great cross from Mendy.

David Silva was at the heart of, most of City's creative probings and Gabriel Jesus twice had chance to open the scoring in the opening minutes only to be denied by keeper Ben Hamer.

He is now tied for first as the league's leading goal scorer with three goals.

'I thought to take Sergio off before the hat-trick but in the end it was ideal, he scored a goal and off to a standing ovation'.

Jesus added a second six minutes later following good work from Benjamin Mendy and when the Frenchman delivered a cross that Hamer fumbled, Aguero accepted the gift to score City's third.

Aguero insists he is not concerned about losing his place should Guardiola revert back to a lone central striker, telling Sky: "I have to train hard, and then it is the decision of the manager. He came back ideal".

"We could not attack in this way past year because we did not have Benjamin Mendy, he is so clever to go up and down", Guardiola said.

Watford captain Deeney said: "Last season we didn't all have a pre-season together, but this pre-season everybody put in the graft".

"When this happens, Sergio is one of the best, best, best, best strikers in the world, without a doubt".

Selected by 5.2% of managers heading into matchweek two, many may believe that Roberto Pereyra's 16 point haul last weekend was just a freak occurrence after the 2-0 win over Brighton but the stats suggest that is not the case. FERREYRA won the ball off the defender and held him off as he turned and his right footed shot gave Benfica the 1-0 lead.

While the rest of the Premier League prepares for their second match, Burnley are well into their stride as Europa League qualifiers mean that Sean Dyche's side have already played five matches this season - and they are in superb form.
