A Sergio Aguero goal must be on the cards against Liverpool a week on Saturday at the Etihad if you’re a betting man? Why? Because he just loves scoring at home against Liverpool. If he manages do it again it will be the sixth occasion that he has done it and equal the all-time Premier League record of Thierry Henry, who achieved it against Aston Villa at Highbury over ten years ago.
The question is though, will he be playing? I think he will be but you do just never know under Pep, if however Sergio is not getting a game against a team he always scores against and a team that has potential as title contenders then there can’t be much hope for him. For me him and Jesus should be playing as a front two because they haven’t played together that much due to both having long injuries at different times last season. At least they’re both have a goal already this season and more will come, Sterling currently leads the way as our top goalscorer with two after a late equaliser against Everton and later winner against Bournemouth.
Aquero got his goal on the opening day of the season as we ran out with an easy win away to newly promoted Brighton by two goals to nil. Our second was an owl goal but we fully deserved all three points as the home team hardly troubled us.
That couldn’t be said against Everton as ex-United man and scouser Rooney gave them the lead on Monday Night Football in the first half. We then had Kyle Walker wrongly sent off in my opinion on the stroke of half-time. Strangely we were easily the better team with ten men then in the second half, I’d have thought with all Everton’s summer spending they’d have taken full advantage. They didn’t though and I was disappointed in the end that we didn’t get a second and a winner.
As for Bournemouth away, wow what a dramatic end to a game, I was watching it in a bar in Chorlton and it erupted in there just like it did at Dean Court itself. You just can’t beat those moments! Anyway, performance wise it’s been a slow start but with the news lads in and more games to come in September we’re hopefully on the march with Pep.
