Aguero nets hat-trick as Man City thrash Huddersfield

Monday, 20 Aug, 2018

Sergio Aguero hit a hit-trick as Manchester City's record-breaking forward inspired a 6-1 demolition of Huddersfield on Sunday.

Then three goals arrived in a seven-minute spell to basically seal the win for City.

Five minutes later, Aguero had his third - and his 31st league game in which he has scored multiple goals.

However, City restored their three-goal advantage two minutes into the second half, with David Silva curling home a superb free-kick on his 250th appearance. The evergreen Aguero hoisted the ball over the browbeaten Ben Hamer from a delightful radar-like ping from goalkeeper Ederson and into the empty net on 25 minutes.

No matter - City restored a three-goal advantage just three minutes into the second half with a wonderful free-kick from 20 yards from David Silva that left Hamer flat-footed - the ideal way to mark his 250th Premier League appearance. The second episode of the eight-part series focuses on City's victory against United at Old Trafford last season. Silva started the season well, putting Arsenal to the sword with a well-taken goal in the opening game of the season.

And Reds hero Barnes says Klopp wouldn't want a De Bruyne or Silva type of player at Anfield, claiming they don't suit the German's style of play.

"No surgery is required, and the midfielder is expected to be out for around three months".

The striker was taken off straight after that but his replacement, Leroy Sane, was involved in City's final goal when his attempt was saved by Hamer but went in off the unsuspecting Kongolo.

And with David Silva potentially ready to rejoin the fray for Sunday's visit of Huddersfield Town, Guardiola believes the 32-year-old Spaniard also still has a key role to play now that he has hung up his global boots.

Guardiola's ability to bring the best out of intelligent players even when moving them into new, unaccustomed positions makes his City side perhaps the most flexible the Premier League has seen.

United have arguably already surrendered their status as England's most dominant side, having not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson departed the club at the end of the 2012-13 season.

Silva missed the start of the 2018/19 season due to a leg injury but resumed training this week and Pep Guardiola rewarded him with his first start of the campaign.
