Sergio Aguero netted four times as Manchester City crushed Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 in the English Premier League at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. Tottenham did not waste any time when it came to the scoring opportunities. Ryan Mason headed for the goal but his right footed shot from outside the box missed to the left.
In the eighth minute Mason faced the goal again but his attempt this time was saved. From a goal kick Spurs managed to steal the ball. An assist from Erik Lamela helped Christian Eriksen take a shot but his attempt was blocked.
City’s first real touch of the ball saw David Silva try to pass it to Sergio Aguero who was found offside. The first 12 minutes was dominated by Spurs but the next minute changed everything. Aguero put City in the lead with a right footed shot which saw them take the lead 1-0.
The Citizens hardly enjoyed the lead as Eriksen scored the equaliser in the 15th minute. Aguero got the second goal to put Man City in the lead. Half-time arrived with a 2-1 lead to the hosts.
The second half was even more eventful. Aguero extended the lead to 3-1. Mauricio Pochettino’s men found themselves down to ten men which didn’t help their situation before Aguero sealed the deal with his fourth goal of the match.
With Aguero scoring four goals, two of them coming from penalties, Manuel Pellegrini’s side moved to second place on the log.
