Pep Guardiola makes frightening Sergio Aguero claim

Pep Guardiola makes frightening Sergio Aguero claim

With eight goals already, it's an ominous start by the defending champions.

David Silva went out onto the pitch against Huddersfield with his son Mateo who is now fit and well after five months in hospital after being born prematurely.

If that gave Guardiola something to ponder at the interval, it required just three minutes of the second half for Silva to restore City's three-goal cushion.

By then City were 3-1 up although it could have been far more.

"It's not just that he scores goals... he creates chances, moves, assists, passes". The only blip was Jon Stankovic's strike from a long throw.

Of course, with so long left, it was nearly inevitable that the Blues would inflict further damage and it came on 75 minutes as Mendy sent in a fine low cross and Aguero deftly volleyed past Hamer from close range for yet another hat-trick in sky blue.

His return couldn't have come at a better time, for City were reeling with the news that key midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Guardiola shuffled his starting lineup and started with a back three, Bernardo Silva and Mendy as wing-backs and a front two of Aguero and Jesus.

It is understood City bosses have not been approached by Spurs about the problem and have had no dialogue. This monstrous City winning machine are improving after hitting 100 points last season.

Pep Guardiola believes that post-World Cup fatigue may be responsible for the knee injury that has ruled Kevin De Bruyne out for three months. Huddersfield, meanwhile, drop to the bottom of the standings on goal difference.

"Klopp wants high-energy players who probably haven't got the technical quality of a De Bruyne or a Silva".

The match will air on Sky Sports Premier League. "It's a special day for them, for us and for David". Next up for the Terriers is Cardiff, and Wagner will be looking for a morale-boosting result ahead of the winnable tie against the newly promoted side.

Despite the blow of losing De Bruyne, City remain heavy favourites to become the first side in a decade to retain the Premier League.

Jesus also played really well, especially when it came down to quick interplay in the final third.

City granted the people behind "All Or Nothing", an Amazon franchise who has worked with New Zealand rugby and National Football League teams in the past, access to the inner workings of Pep Guardiola's side for a series that was released yesterday.
