Aguero hat-trick sinks Arsenal

Manchester City are now two points of EPL League leaders Liverpool many thanks to Sergio Aguero’s hat-trick in a three-one win over Arsenal on Sunday.

For the 2nd time in a 7 days, Aguero scored inside the initial minute to give City an excellent start.

However, just like in a shock defeat at Newcastle on Tuesday, the champions
unsuccessful to push home their advantage as Laurent Koscielny profited from
some slack defending to head home an equaliser just 10 minutes later.

Pep Guardiola’s men were being knocked out of their stride for most of the
remainder of the initial half, but retook the lead just a minute
in advance of the break when Ilkay Gundogan’s pleasant lofted pass teed up
Raheem Sterling to cross for Aguero to tap home.

The same two players merged for the Argentine to safe his tenth EPL League
hat-trick in controversial style as the ball came back off Aguero’s
arm in advance of rolling over the line just just after the hour mark.

A sixth consecutive away league game devoid of a win sees Arsenal slip down to
sixth behind Manchester United, who were being 1- victors at Leicester
before on Sunday, and three points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea in
the struggle for Champions League football next season.

Aguero has now scored 7 times in as quite a few games in 2019 to underline his
importance to City’s quest for silverware on 4 fronts.

The thirty-year-old capped a traveling get started from the hosts by steering home an
unstoppable header past Bernd Leno just fifty one seconds in just after Alex Iwobi
was caught in possession by Aymeric Laporte.

Moments later the ball was in the Arsenal net again, but this time Laporte was rightly flagged offside.

The Gunners experienced barely threatened in advance of levelling when Koscielny stooped minimal to head home Nacho Monreal’s flick-on.

City also led early on in defeats by Crystal Palace and Leicester in December and Koscielny’s equaliser shifted the mood and momentum of the game as the home facet feared the exact fate may even further hurt their title obstacle.

As an alternative, one particular excellent transfer swung the result
back in their favour. Sterling played a one particular-two with Gundogan in advance of volleying a magnificent, initial-time centre across the face of the net
for the unmarked Aguero to flip in at the far post.

In contrast, the next half was a stroll and City should have far more than just the one particular goal to display for their dominance.

Sterling was again the architect with a darting run into the area which left the
Arsenal defence in tatters in advance of he arrived at the by-line and crossed
for the sliding Aguero to steer the ball in via his arm.

Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Aguero again peppered Leno with effective
pictures that the German held out to maintain some respectability for
Arsenal.

But that is all they experienced to display for one more sorry away
efficiency that leaves their probabilities of avoiding a 3rd straight
season in the Europa League fading.

Aguero considers legal action about disgusting pitch invader

Aguero considers legal action about disgusting pitch invader

Wigan Athletic FC has launched a formal investigation to get a detailed information about the incidents that occurred after the League one side eliminated Manchester City in the FA Cup on Monday, a victory that saw thousands of the club supporters invading the field after the final whistle.
City forward, Sergio Aguero was a victim of the chaotic scene as he was targeted by a Wigan fan whom the player claimed spat on him having screamed “suck my d**k”
TV replays have shown that the Argentine appeared to raise his arm to push the fan after the provocation and was later prevented from descending on him [the fan].
Thus, it is yet to be seen if City and Aguero will be interested in pursuing the matter further although the club and player asserted that they will seek legal advice first.
Aside from this incident, a number of the League one side fans also celebrated at the City fans’ end of the field, a display that led to further brouhaha between to two sets of fans.
They were seen to be throwing objects and bottles onto the pitch as they also clashed with the stewards as well as some police. The Police later restored calm but two arrests were made.
Chief Superintendent Stuart Ellison of Greater Manchester Police said: “Football is a family event and the disruption that players and fans alike faced last night will not be tolerated.
“As soon as people were on the pitch, we immediately deployed our resources to the front of the stands, where they were able to keep the two groups of supporters apart and prevent any further disruption.
“Emotions always run high at football matches, and sometimes, this means that officers have to intervene to ensure the safety of the fans.”
The Premier League leaders are still silent about the issue even as they believe that the stewarding levels for a game of such magnitude, more so between local rivals was inadequate. They saw the incidence as intolerable as players’ safety could easily have been endangered.
Chief Executive of Wigan has quickly released a statement after the incidence as he said: “Whilst we appreciate that the vast majority of supporters who ran on to the pitch did so spontaneously to celebrate a famous victory, we were disappointed with the action of a minority of supporters who acted in an inappropriate manner.
“Player and staff safety is of paramount importance and we will conduct a full investigation.”
Meanwhile, the Football Association is evaluating events and will grossly consider the report of referee Anthony Taylor and video footage before deciding whether to launch its own investigation.
