“Goal Machine” – fans react as four-goal Aguero dismantles Leicester

Sergio Aguero took his total for the season to 28 in all competitions as he hit four past Leicester in a 5-1 win for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring after only three minutes to give the hosts the lead, before Jamie Vardy equalised after capitalising on a mistake by defender Nicholas Otamendi.

From here on in, it was the Sergio Aguero show.

48 minutes: Aguero latches on to a fine ball across the box from Kevin De Bruyne to slot home his first of the night and give City the lead.

53 minutes: The Argentine latches onto yet another ball from De Bruyne in the box, slamming the ball past Kasper Schmeichel.

77 minutes: A delightful finish. Schmeichel, receiving the ball from a pass-back, misplaced his pass straight into the feet of Aguero, who took one touch before producing a deft lob to leave the Dane red faced and complete his hat-trick.

90 minutes: Goal of the game. No help needed from De Bruyne or Schmeichel this time. Aguero, picking the ball up on the edge of the box, thunders a strike in off the underside of the bar.

It was a performance to remember, however those haven’t been few and far between for Aguero during his time at City.

Scoring his third saw him secure his eight hat-trick for the club, and by the end of the game, Aguero took is total in a Sky Blue shirt to 197 in all competitions.

Without a doubt one of the Premier League and Europe’s stand-out players, City fans have taken to Twitter to thank the Argentine for yet another world class display …
