The Argentine superstar found the net after only 16 minutes to give the Citizens the lead away at their struggling opponents.
A quiet deadline day in the transfer market at Eastlands was shattered with the news that Manuel Pellegrini will be replaced by Pep Guardiola at the end of the season [via the club’s official website], with the Sky Blues having succeeded in tempting the Bayern Munich coach to the Etihad Stadium when he comes to the end of his tenure in Bavaria.
City showed no signs of being distracted by the news as they strode into the lead against Sunderland.
Aguero was injured earlier in the campaign, and without him, Wilfried Bony struggled to impress. However, now back to full fitness—and paired with Nigerian wonderkid in City’s 4-4-2 formation—Aguero shone, and made no mistake from close range against the Black Cats on Tuesday evening.
However, there was slight concern as Aguero hobbled away before falling to the turf after finding the net, and Citizens fans will be desperate to see the South American superstar emerge from this bout unscathed.
