After watching cross town rivals Manchester United demolish the reigning champions Leicester City, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City faced Swansea City for the second time in a week, after the two teams had clashed in the EFL Cup at the Liberty Stadium where the Citizens had come out on top.
Manchester City continued their good start to the season and eked out yet another win to make it a perfect 10 out of 10 victories as Pep Guardiola’s revolution continued in full swing.
Here are five talking points from the engrossing encounter.
#1 Sergio Aguero’s brilliant start to the season continues
10 out of 10 for Guardiola. 11 goals for Aguero. The Argentine has been a modicum of consistency ever since his move to the Premier League, but under Guardiola he has dazzled like never before.
In less then two months, the Argentinian is already into double figures for the campaign.
Both his goals were one for the collector’s item; the first a show of his flexibility with an expert turn and finish, and the second a perfect paneka penalty to fool Lukasz Fabianski. This season might turn out to be one for the record books for Aguero if he continues at this rate and is lucky with fitness and stays away from injuries.
