Premier League news: Sergio Aguero can lead Arsenal to title, says Ian Wright
Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright believes that Arsenal can win the English Premier League with Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero in their side. Wright was speaking on BT Sport, following Arsenal's 4-1 win at Sunderland on Saturday.
Wright said that he hope that Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola would “mess around” with Aguero and keep his future at Etihad Stadium in doubt. Guardiola had opted to play Kevin de Bruyne up front in place of the Argentine forward in Man City's 4-0 loss to Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League fixture.
This has created some speculation regarding Aguero's future at The Etihad. Wright, who himself was a prolific striker for the Gunners, believed that Aguero was a perfect fit for Arsenal, who have failed to win a Premier League title since 2003/04. The 52-year-old felt that Aguero would be the right person to fire the Gunners to a much-awaited title.
“What I would like to happen is that Pep continues to mess around with Aguero and then Arsenal buy him. And then we just win the league off the back of that, simple as that,” Wright said.
After Guardiola's Man City went six games without a win, Aguero fired his side to a 4-1 win at West Bromwich Albion, scoring two goals and setting up one. Following the match against Barcelona in the Champions League, Guardiola had spoken up about Aguero's situation at the club.
“I want to be clear again. I am so happy with Sergio and, hopefully, he can stay for a long time here,” the Man City manager explained.
Although this will be a blow to clubs who want to procure the Argentine's services, his situation at Man City will definitely be closely followed, considering he is one of the most lethal strikers in the world at the moment.
OIivier Giroud, who was out of action following a toe injury, returned to action as a substitute in the win over David Moyes’ Sunderland. Giroud, who came on during the 69th minute, scored with his first two touches, in the 71st and 76th minutes respectively, to give his side an easy victory after Jermain Defore had equalised in the 65th minute.
After ten games, Arsenal are level on points with table-toppers, Man City who lead the table on goal difference. Liverpool, who are third in the table, are also level on points with Man City and Arsenal, thus going to show how competitive the Premier League has been so far.
